turned out to be a huge mountain to climb for the Japanese.

In the second game, Tago grabbed the first two points but it turned out to be hard battle after that but Tago managed to held on to his two-point lead at 11-9 at the interval. The Japanese conjured up hopes of a comeback when he led 15-10.

But Lee once again showed his class as he came from nowhere to reel off 10 points which took him to a healthy five-point lead. Tago saved one match point with a smash but Lee sealed it in the next chance.
