Kuala Lumpur: It’s not easy to say goodbye to the sport she loves so much, but Malaysia’s Rio Olympics mixed doubles silver medalist – Goh Liu Ying will bid farewell to badminton and her fans at the 2023 Malaysia Open, a Super 1000 event which will be held in Kuala Lumpur from Jan 10, 2023, to Jan 15, 2023.

Goh will be reunited with Chan Peng Soon at the Malaysia Open and will open against Rehan Naufal Kusharjanto/Lisa Ayu Kusumawati of Indonesia. They’ll face compatriots either Chen Tang Jie/Toh Ee Wei or Tan Kian Meng/Lai Pei Jing in the second round.

Goh and Chan decided to end their 13-year partnership in December 2021. Since then, Goh had paired up with Ong Yew Sin, Soong Joo Ven, and Low Juan Shen all without producing any significant impact.

Meanwhile, Chan also did not fare any better with various partners such as Valeree Siow, Toh Ee Wei and Cheah Yee See since returning to the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) after parted away with Goh.

And barely one year after returning to BAM, Chan announced his resignation from the association on Nov 4, 2022.

Wish both Goh Liu Ying and Chan Peng Soon best of luck and great success in their future endeavors.
