Korea: Malaysia's women’s doubles shuttlers Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho kept calm and focused to beat Hsieh Pei-chen-Cheng Wen-hsing of Taiwan 21-14, 21-14 in a 30-minute second round match to set up a last eight clash against India’s former World Championships bronze medalists Ashwini Ponnappa-Jwala Gutta of India.

The pair saved Malaysia's blushes on a day most of the other Malaysians fell by the wayside.

 

“We had a great game against the Taiwanese pair today. We lost to the Indian pair at the Indian Open GP Gold but we hope to get our revenge tomorrow,” said Amelia.

“We hope our result at ABC could increase our chances of playing in the Uber Cup Finals team.”

In men’s doubles, Low Juan Shen-Nelson Heg Wei Keat reached quarter final without breaking a sweat, after their opponents – top seeds and Singapore Open runners-up Tsai Chia-hsin-Lee Sheng-mu of Taiwan – conceded a walkover.

Juan Shen-Wei Keat will take on China’s Shi Longfei-Chen Zhuofu tomorrow.

In men’s singles, Lin Dan of China bulldozed into quarter-finals with a thumping 21-13, 21-4 win over Pham Cao Cuong of Vietnam in 30 minutes. He will face Hong Kong’s Wei Nan, who did well to dump Lee Dong-keon of South Korea with a 21-8, 21-17 win in 45 minutes.

Other Malaysia, Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei, Meng Yean-Yin Loo, Teo Ee Yi-Chooi Kah Ming, Tee Jing Yi and Lim Yin Fun were sent packing by their opponents.
