He is going to play against the runner-up of Malaysian Open GP Gold, rising star Sourabh Varma from India in the second round.

Sourabh, on the other hand, had to overcome the towering Russian player, Vladimir Ivanov, by winning a tough game with 21-16, 17-21, and 21-14.

Sixth seed Wang Zhengming of China who was expected to play Chong Wei in the last eight, lost out to India's top player, P. Kashyap 12-21, 21-17, 12-21.

Unfortunately, 2 pairs of Malaysia's men’s doubles, Tan Boon Heong-Ow Yao Han and fifth seeds Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong crashed out in the first round.

Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong who also bit the dust on the first round last week at Malaysian Open GP, should really work with their coaches to figure out what is going on with them. Not to give Tan Boon Heong-Ow Yao Han any excuses, but it was not easy to play against second seeds Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen, which they eventually lost to by 17-21, 14-21. Tan and Ow still have long way to go before they can reach be an elite pair.

This makes Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah the sole survivors through to the next round in men's doubles. Their next opponents would be Ko Sung-hyun-Shin Baek-cheol from South Korean.
