Defending All England champion Lee Zii Jia ushered his dominance over former world no. 1 Kento Momota in the quarter-finals yesterday.

Zii Jia produced phases of excellent play throughout the match to which Momota had no answers. At one point, he was leading 17-1 against Momota in the first game. (Score: 21-7, 13-21, 21-11)

Lee Zii Jia: “Momota couldn’t control the shuttle in the first game. I just tried to keep playing my attacking shots. This win gives me a lot of confidence.

“The next round will be against Lakshya (Sen), who is in good form. I just need to enjoy my game and play the way I have. Lakshya is playing very well and will be a top player in future.”
