HO CHI MINH CITY: Malaysia’s Lee Wan Wah-Choong Tan Fook ended their title drought this year by emerging as the men’s doubles champions at the Vietnam Open here yesterday.

The veteran Malaysian pair, who have quit the national team, tamed Indonesian youngsters Fran Kurniawan-Rendra Wijaya 21-14, 21-10 in the final.

It was their first title since winning the Asian Championships in April last year. It was not a major title but Wan Wah was still delighted with their efforts.

“We were able to nail at least one before the end of the season and we both feel very good about it. It will be good for our morale as we prepare for the Malaysian Open next year (Jan 6-11),” said Wan Wah.

Wah Wah, however, has one job left to accomplish this year. He will leave for Tokyo today to play in the Japan league, representing Osaka Tricky Panders.

In the men’s singles, Nguyen Tien Minh lived up to expectations of his home fans when he defeated Hong Kong’s Chan Yan Kit 24-22, 21-18 for the title.
