Incheon: Shuttler Parupalli Kashyap on Saturday bowed out of the Korea Open after suffering a straight-games defeat in the semi-finals of the men’s single event against World No. 1 Kento Momota of Japan.

Kashyap, who was the only Indian left in the tournament after all the star shuttlers made early round exits, lost 13-21, 15-21 in a match that lasted 40 minutes at the Incheon Airport Skydome.

Momota will now be facing Taiwan’s Tien Chen Chou in the final.
