Bangkok, Dec 8 (PTI) India's HS Prannoy went down fighting in three games to China's Lu Guang Zu in his second Group A match to virtually bow out of semifinal race at the BWF World Tour Finals here on Thursday.

The 30-year-old from Kerala, who had lost to the same opponent in his only meeting at French Open this year, put up a brave effort but couldn't go the distance, losing 21-23 21-17 19-21 in a gruelling 84-minute contest.

It was his second loss in group A following the opening match defeat to Japan's Kodai Naraoka.
