Abhay Singh

Cardiff (Wales): India's Abhay Singh went down to the top seed and defending champion Richie Fallows of England in straight games in the semi-final of the Rhiwbina Wales Open, a PSA challenger event here late on Friday. Richie won 11-7, 11-9, 11-5.

Confronting an opponent who excelled in serving tantalising lengths and clever strokes, Abhay was left at the receiving end most times, doing all the running.
