RAZIF Latif-Woon Khe Wei advanced to the mixed doubles' main draw of the Singapore Open but national elite back-up singles player Tan Chun Seang was shown the door in the qualifying rounds yesterday.

Razif-Khe Wei were lucky in the opening round when Singapore's Hendri Kurniawan Saputra-Vanessa Neo retired midway in the second game. The Singaporean pair had turned on the heat with a stunning 21-19 victory in the first game.

In the deciding second round match, Razif-Khe Wei thrashed Netherlands' Koen Ridder-Yao Jie 21-9, 21-14 in 18 minutes to book their spot in the main draw.
