It’s the end of the line for Australia’s Rohan Dhooria and Michelle Wu at the 2017 ITTF World Junior Circuit Finals in Luxembourg. The pair have finished up the event unable to post a win.

Dhooria closed out the group stage stealing a game off top seed Kanak Jha, going down to the USA’s rising star 4-1 (6,-6,4,6,3). The Aussie then went on to face Austria’s Maciej Kolodziejczyk in the playoff for 9th-16th, losing that encounter 4-0 (3,3,8,6).

Michelle Wu had a similarly tough time, with Archana Girish Kamath getting the better of the Aussie in four straight games in their 9th-16th playoff match.
