White discusses crowd support after Labanauskas win: "I can imagine what the footballers go through now"

Ian White came from 2-0 down to stage a stunning comeback and see off Darius Labanauskas to reach the Quarter-FInals of the World Grand Prix where he will now face off against Danny Noppert.

A big chance for both and for White he admits the crowd getting on his side was a big part in claiming victory.

"I don't feel sorry for Darius at the end of the day you've got to go up there and win. He was 2-0 up and he hadn't won a leg, so I just thought keep going and when the crowd started singing and shouting, I thought I'd start using it and that's what happened," said White post match.

"I was on my way home. I had to dig in and I know I can do it. You all know I can do it and I just thought dig in and just keep getting off."

He further spoke about the crowd which were dubbed by some as the Ian White 'ultras' in reference to football fans.

"That crowd helped me left right centre. It's what players want, they want the crowd on your side. I can imagine what the footballers go through now when they're playing away and they're getting all the stick but I've had that before so we'll take the rough with the smooth."
