BIRMINGHAM: While world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei can return home with a big smile on his face, the same cannot be said of Malaysia’s under-performing men’s doubles pairs at the All-England.
Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah and Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong came here with high hopes of doing well but both pairs fell short.
Thien How-Wee Kiong, ranked No. 7 in the world, failed to get their game going in the quarter-finals and surrendered meekly to Indonesia’s Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Markis Kido.
The 24-year-old Wee Kiong said that they were emotionally affected by unfavourable service calls, which led to their defeat.
