Friday Kento Momota lost for the first time in 28 matches.

There is no doubt that Japanese Kento Momota is the men’s singles to beat. The defending world champion and world number have won 28 consecutive matches, and the last time he lost was back in July, where he lost to Huang Yuxiang, China, at Indonesia Open.

Since July Momota has won Japan Open, the World Championships, China Open, Korea Open and Denmark Open, but there will be no title celebration in Paris this time for the Japanese.

Tired Momota
Momota lost his quarterfinal at French Open to Anthony Sinisuka Ginting, Indonesia, in straight games 21-10 21-19.

- There is for sure things I need to improve, but I am also very tired. I really need a break to recover, Kento Momota said. 

- I made less mistakes today, and I could also see that he was tired. I am very happy. Every player wants to beat him. He is the best player in the world, Anthony Ginting stated.

The Indonesian will play either Sehsar Hiren Rhustavito, Indonesia, or Chen Long, China, in the semifinals.
