India’s Manav Thakkar did everything right until the final of the 2018 ITTF World Junior Circuit Finals at Luxembourg.
But in the final, the Indian failed to cash in on the close sixth game win as he ended with the Junior Boys silver medal on Sunday evening.
The No. 3 seeded Indian went down to top-seed Kanak Jha of the US 3-4 (11-9, 3-11, 11-9. 6-11, 3-11, 11-9, 6-11) in the see-saw final that saw the pendulum swing from one extreme to another.
