Jeju (Korea): Indian shuttler P Kashyap's good run at the Korea Open came to an end after he suffered a narrow defeat against top seed Son Wan Ho in the semi-finals of the Grand Prix Gold tournament here yesterday.

Kashyap blew a 14-10 and 12-10 advantage in the two games to lose 21-23, 16-21 against the local favourite.

The Indian surged to a 5-1 lead in the opening game. But Son was a step ahead as he reeled off the required points to take the first game.

In the second game, Son dominated the proceedings as he moved to a 4-1 lead and even though Kashyap clawed back at 6-6 and then grabbed a slender lead at 12-10, the Korean broke off at 13-13 and slowly moved ahead to eventually shut the door on the Indian.
