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."body check tags ::
