WEE KIONG/ V SHEM ARE THROUGH TO THE SECOND ROUND

Top national doubles pair, Wee Kiong / V Shem did not face much trouble against Chan Jun Bong/ Kim Dae Eun of Korea in the first round today wrapping up the match in two games, 21/15, 21/13 in just 26 minutes. With their teammates bowing out yesterday, it is left with these two men to do well in Korea.

Their second round tomorrow will be a tough one when they meet reigning world champions, Hendra Setiawan/ Mohammad Ahsan of Indonesia. The pair has played once against the world number two at the OUE Singapore Open this year losing the match in three games.

However, the Malaysians are capable of getting the better of their opponents tomorrow as they have created shocking upsets before. They defeated 2014 world champions, Sin Baek Cheol/ Ko Sung Hyun in the second round of the World Championships in Jakarta last month and tomorrow’s match can be a repeat of last month’s feat.
