Singapore’s badminton player Loh Kean Yew has advanced to the finals of the Indian Badminton General Awards.
He will face Brian Yang of Low Canada in the semifinals today.
But after Yang withdrew from the tournament, Lo advanced to the finals.
Yang is said to have left due to ill health.
In the finals, Lo will face either Lakshya Sen of India or Ng Tze Yong of Malaysia.
The match in the Indian capital, New Delhi, has been plagued by germs.
In recent days some of the players who have been confirmed to be infected are withdrawing from the tournament.
In the doubles, Singapore’s Terry Hee Yong Kai and Dan Wei Han also advanced to the finals.
The Russians, who were scheduled to compete in the final with them, withdrew from the tournament due to infection.
