Ho Chi Minh City : Indian shuttler Ajay Jayaram had to be content with a runner-up at the Vietnam Open after losing the final to Shesar Hiren Rhustavito of Indonesia here.

The 30-year-old Indian had an impressive run at the tournament before losing 14-21, 10-21 to Shesar in a 28-minute clash at the BWF Tour Super 100 tournament.

It was second consecutive runner-up finish for Jayaram on the circuit as he had also reached the final at the White Nights International Challenge, last month.


“Never really found my rhythm today. Seemed very error prone right from the beginning.

“He did well to keep the pressure going from the net and I wasn’t able to dictate the rallies,” Jayaram, the former world number 13  said after the match.
