Scott Evans 'physically and mentally exhausted' after losing quarter-final

Ireland's Scott Evans talks about the 'physical and mental pressure' after his men's singles quarter-final loss to Emil Holst.

Top badminton seed Scott Evans has spoken of his exhaustion after losing his men's singles quarter-final.

Irishman Evans lost to Denmark's Emil Holst over two games, 21-17 21-14.

"These are the tournaments where if you do well you can get more funding," Evans told reporters. "Obviously there's a lot of pressure for that. It's taken its toll on me, physically and mentally. I have to deal with it and I've found that very, very hard.

"World ranking doesn't really mean anything; [Holst] should have been seeded second. I don't go into a game thinking I'm ranked 20 places above the other player.

"He's obviously the best player left in the tournament."

Number eight seed Holst will now face Germany's Dieter Domke in tomorrow's semi-final.
