Howard Shu has faced Osleni Guerrero a few times before, most notably at the 2013 and 2014 Pan Am Badminton Championships. He lost Guerrero both of those times, claiming a bronze medal in both of those matches. Shu attempted to get revenge on Saturday afternoon on his Cuban nemesis but lost the match 2-0. Even though he got off to a bright start in the first game, playing even with Guerrero for at least half of the contest, he couldn't sustain it and ultimately lost 21-16. In the second game, Guerrero won the match soundly with a 21-15 victory, eliminating Shu from the next round and medal contention.
