NEW DELHI:More than a year after recovering from a shoulder injury, Ajay Jayaram earned a final appearance at the Korea Open last week and the Indian shuttler said it was a big moment for him after enduring a challenging seven-month layoff.Coming into the tournament as an underdog, Jayaram went on to reach the final and even though he eventually lost to World No.1 Chen Long, the Bangalore-based shuttler is glad he could realise his dream of making it to the final of a Super Series event.“Since my childhood, I have seen so many people whom I look up to, like Peter Gade, Lin Dan or Taufik Hidayat getting up there, so it was a dream to take the court in Super Series finals. So it was a big moment for me to reach the final,” said Jayaram.For six months, Jayaram was left on the sidelines, nursing a shoulder injury sustained in January last year.What followed were multiple visits to the doctor, going under the knife and then the rehabilitation process.
