HYDERABAD, Aug 12  -- Malaysia's top women's singles player Wong Mew Choo failed to tame petite Japanese Al Goto and crashed out in the second round of the women's singles in the Yonex-Sunrise World Badminton Championship here Wednesday.

Mew Choo easily pocketed the first set 21-18 but failed to keep the pace when Goto dragged her into long rallies and was forced to give up in the second match 12- 21.

However, in the decider, Mew Choo managed to level several times despite trailing but succumbed to the more energetic Japanese player in 21-23.

"I did not have the stamina, I felt tired and lost focus. I could not stand her long rallies and made several mistakes during the crucial points," Mew Choo told reporters after the match.

However, both the Malaysian men's singles players made up for the loss in the afternoon, when world's top men's singles player Datuk Lee Chong Wei and Wong Choong Hann defeated their opponents to advance to the third round. Chong Wei beat Ola Fagbemi of Nigeria 21-11, 21-14 while Choong Hann had a scary game against Estonia's Raul Must, winning the first, losing the second but managed to grab the third to wrap it up in 21-12, 7-21, 21-16.

In the men's doubles Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif and his partner Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari advanced to the second round after knocking out Japanese pair Yoshiteru Hirobe and Hajime Komiyama 21-14, 23-21.
