KUALA LUMPUR: National top men’s singles, Lee Zii Jia is getting closer to clinching his first title in eight months after he stormed to the final of Hylo Open 2021 in Germany, earlier today, Malaysian time.

The second seed shuttler defeated sixth seed player, Srikanth Kidambi of India in the last four to set up a final showdown against the unseeded Loh Kean Yew of Singapore, later today.

However, it was not an easy ride for Zii Jia as Srikanth showed his resilience in the first set before the Kedahan player recorded a slim 21-19 victory.

In the second set, Zii Jia once again survived a scare as the world No 8 fought back from a 9-15 deficit to catch Srikanth and eventually got lucky to advance to the final after he won 22-20.
