The 20-year-old LOH came back from a four-point deficit in the third game to win 21-12, 18-21, 21-18.
In the team event earlier this week, LOH had served notice of his potential by having four match points against England No.1 Rajiv OUSEPH and more than holding his own against world No.2 Srikanth KIDAMBI (IND), although both matches ended in defeat for the Singaporean.
LOH is one win away from a potential meeting with two-time Commonwealth Games men’s singles champion LEE Chong Wei of Malaysia in the quarterfinals.
