After seeing an intense competition in the first two games, there were hopes from Sharath Kamal in the third game too. Sharat was seen living up to this expectation at one point of time but finally, the Chinese player managed to register a 13-11 win. However, Long won the next two games 13-11, 11-4 to take a 3-1 lead.
