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.”
