The 32-year-old Dutchman had done little of note this year, having faltered in the first round of four events. However, he transformed dramatically at the World Championships.
After a comfortable first-round win over Sweden's Mathias Borg, Pang (below) shocked 11th seed Tian Houwei in straight games and then recovered from a deficit to topple Thailand's Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk.
In the quarter-final he matched Tommy Sugiarto (Indonesia) shot for shot and was unlucky to fall in straight games, having blown game point in the first and leads of 17-11 and 18-15 in the second. Will this be a late turning point in the elegant Dutchman's career?
