Persson had no answer to the speed and powerful strokes of his higher ranked opponent. Dan finished up the second game by playing attacking badminton with a wonderful 21-11 margin on the score board. The overall result of the match was 21-9 and 21-11.

In the Men’s Singles quarter-final, Dan will take on his compatriot Chen Jin, who defeated Ajay Jayaram of India in the pre-quarter-final contest.
