On his fourth-rubber win over Muhammad Ashraf Haiqal MUHAMMAD RIZAL (MAS):
“I didn’t know I was going to play the singles. I was surprised when I was called up. I didn’t want to lose, so I just said to myself, ‘OK, I have to win’.”
On his winning strategy:
“I was prepared, I knew I had to keep fighting. I focused on returning short to his forehand and always being on the attack.”
