KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 14 (Bernama) -- Nusa Mahsuri's player, Roslin Hashim goes into the second round of the men's singles after beating minnow Magnus Sahlberg of Sweden in the 16th World Badminton Championships held at Putra Stadium, here today.
World number 26th, Roslin, trained by Rashid Sidek since a year ago, beat the Swede 21-17, 21-9 in 36 minutes.

Sahlberg nearly pulled an upset against his opponent in the first set when the Malaysian seemed to be struggling with his game, but the experienced Roslin controlled the match after levelling the score to 17 all and sealed it with another five straight points.

In the second set, Roslin who is making his third appearance in the World Championships, led the match all the way and will battle against the third seed, Chen Jin of China in the second round tomorrow.

"It was a bit tough for me in the first set as it was a different environment in the Putra Stadium but composed myself, and when I levelled the score to 17 all, I found my normal rhythm and secured the first set. In the second set, I managed to control the game and win it," he told reporters after his match here today.

Against the 2004 world junior champion and world number four, Chen Jin tomorrow, Roslin said he never met the Chinese but reminded himself to be careful with the unknown but powerful opponent.

In the mixed doubles, Asian junior champions, Tan Wee Kiong/Woon Khe Wei, playing in their first world championship, also move to the second round after beating Mike Beres/Valerie Loker of Canada 18-21, 21-13, 21-19 and will face the English pair of Anthony Clark/Donna Kellorg, seeded fifth, tomorrow.

In another mixed doubles match, Malaysia's Tan Bin Shen/Ooi Yu Hang beat Khan Bob Malaythong/Mesinee Mangkalakiri of the USA 21-7, 16-21, 21-18 in 39 minutes.

The Malaysians will face the Indonesian duo of Muhammad Rijal/Polii Greysia in the second round.
