Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei beat Sony Dwi of Indonesia on Thursday to become the first player to book their place in the quarter-finals of the men's singles at the All-England Open.

The world No 1 from Malaysia came through 21-11, 21-17 against the Indonesian, a dangerous former winner of Olympic bronze and world silver medals who made an intriguing fight of the second game.

Lee's athletic and carefully crafted victory took him within two wins of another possible meeting in the final with Lin Dan, whose triumph last year helped China to capture all five titles for the first time.

Lee said he was confident about the rest of the week. "I am getting better and better. The second set shows I have improved from yesterday," he said, referring to his slightly laboured first round win over Chetan Anand of India.

England’s top two singles’ players moved serenely into the second round of the 100th All England Open here in Birmingham.

Andrew Smith, the world No 26, made short work of Holland’s Eric Pang 21-10, 21-11 in 20 swift minutes while Rajiv Ouseph, England’s No 1, beat Matthieu Lo Ying Ping, of France, 21-17, 21-19, having clawed back an 8-2 deficit in the second game. Rajiv Ouseph is England's No 1 and world No 23

The tough matches start on Thursday, though. Smith plays former Olympic champion Taufik Hidaya while Ouseph tackles China's Jin Chen, the No 3 seed. Chen had to save a match point against India's Dionysius Rumbaka.

Smith, who trains at the Kuala Lumpur Racket Club after several indifferences with Badminton England, said: "I'm not 100 per cent but I'm better. It was okay today, there is just a tiny bit of pain. I came here today on the basis of just having a hit and seeing if it was okay.”

BIRMINGHAM, England — Former Olympic and World champion Taufik Hidayat had to survive a slow start and a controversial decision before making a winning start to his bid to win the 100th All-England Open.

Taufik was surprisingly outplayed early on, and became annoyed by a line call when he seemed on the way to victory in the final game, before surviving 17-21, 21-11, 21-12 against Hu Yun, the world number 28 from Korea.Taufik Hidayat returns a shot to Hu Yun

The fourth-seeded Indonesian still believes he can to win the world's oldest title, even though it is ten years since he reached the second of his two All-England finals.

Well into his 30th year, Taufik still looked fast and dangerous once he gained his momentum.

"I'm happy but I think that it is a bit too early to be able to say how I'm playing," Taufik said.

"I made too many mistakes in the first set."
