R1: Greg 3-1 Max

Greg Lobban (SCO) 3-1 Max Lee (HKG)  11-6, 11-6, 8-11, 11-8 (56m)


I am delighted to get through. I knew that with the World Champs, you can get a tough draw or a really fortunate one, and with Max I knew it was going to be tough because we are pretty even.

He is not easy to play against because he is a solid competitor. Even when I was 10-4 up in the fourth, he brought it back to 10-8 and really showed his fighting spirit and his experience, so I was pleased to get that last point on the board.
