The Japanese raised his game, helped by the sudden surge in the number of unforced errors committed by the Indian.

In the end, it was a case of missed opportunities for Yuki, who settled for a third-place finish. In the previous edition of the Games, Somdev Devvarman had won India's maiden men's singles gold.
