Top men’s seeds tumble at world championships

Top seed Fan Zhendong and No. 4 Tomokazu Harimoto were both eliminated in the men’s round of 16, joining No. 2 Xu Xin as seeded casualties at the world championships in Budapest, Hungary, yesterday.

Liang Jingkun beat fellow Chinese Fan 5-11, 11-4, 11-8, 11-9, 8-11, 11-7 while Harimoto suffered a surprise 2-4 (11-7, 3-11, 11-8, 11-7, 8-11, 11-9) loss to South Korean An Hae-hyun. France’s Simon Gauzy, who knocked out second-seeded Chinese Xu on Wednesday, stormed into the quarterfinals with a 4-0 victory over Slovakia’s Wang Yang. China’s Lin Gaoyuan overcame South Korean Jeoung Young-sik in straight games to join China team captain Ma Long in the last eight. Ma, seeking a third straight world singles crown, crushed Brazil’s Hugo Calderano 4-1. South Korea’s Jang Woo-jin advanced after German star Timo Boll pulled out of their clash due to fever.
