Syed Modi GP: Gurusaidutt loses a marathon battle

Dec 21 2012, 7:54am CST | by

Lucknow, Dec 21 (IANS) Indian shuttler R.M.V. Gurusaidutt went down to third seed Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia in a marathon quarterfinal battle, lasting an hour and 32 minutes, at the Babu Banarasi Das Indoor Stadium here Friday.

Lucknow, Dec 21 — Indian shuttler R.M.V. Gurusaidutt went down to third seed Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia in a marathon quarterfinal battle, lasting an hour and 32 minutes, at the Babu Banarasi Das Indoor Stadium here Friday.

The 12th seeded Indian lost 21-19, 20-22, 16-21 after a promising start. This was Sugiarto's second win in as many meetings over Gurusaidutt since winning in the 2009 Chinese Taipei Grand Prix Gold.

As the scoreline suggests, all three games went right down to the wire. It was only in the third game that the World No.27 Indonesian pulled away from 10-all. The Indonesian was docked off a point by the chair umpire for wasting time. Sugiarto was shown the yellow card first as a warning for wasting time, before the red.

"He was taking a lot of time which broke my rhythm where I think I lost the match. I don't know what are the rules but Tommy was wasting a lot of time which was irritating. And after playing 80 minutes I did not have patience to wait for him to get for the next point," said the Gurusaidutt.

"But I guess this is all part of the game. He won and I have to respect that. I will be ready for it next time," added the World No.39.

Another Indian, H.S. Prannoy, also lost his last-eight match against fifth seed Alamsyah Yunus of Indonesia in another lengthy match lasting one hour and five minutes.

Yunus won 18-21, 21-10, 21-12.

On his loss, Prannoy said: "I had no pressure on me as I had nothing to lose and just went for my games. I gave it all in the first two games thinking I will win. But then the match stretched till the third game by when I was drained of all energy," said Prannoy.

I was talking to the brilliant 27-year old Israeli player Alon Birman at the recent Brighton Congress, when suddenly there was a loud crash: a pane of glass had fallen to the floor. No one was hurt, and as everyone carried on chatting, Alon quipped: ‘It’s obvious none of you live in Israel.’ Alon is quite a star: aside from his dashing good looks, he is part of the Israeli team that stormed to victory at last month’s European Teams Championships. But lif ...
