Lee Zii Jia refused to use injury as the reason for his early exit from the Indonesia Open.  He lost to Rasmus Gemke of Denmark yesterday in the first round.

Regarding his loss, Zii Jia said, “I was already back in good condition, it’s just that my opponent played much better and I have to admit that.”

“I will take a good rest and then start preparing for the Finals as well as the World Championships (in Huelva, Spain from Dec 12-19),” he added.
