V SHEM-WEE KIONG MISS FINAL CUT

Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong missed out on a place in the final of the India Open Superseries after they fell to Indonesians, Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo in the semi-finals yesterday.

 

The Malaysians have had a great run here but their hopes of going the distance ended prematurely yesterday.

 

Gideon-Kevin won 21-15, 21-17 in 35 minutes to set up an all-Indonesia men's doubles final.

 

Seventh seeds Angga Pratama-Ricky Karanda Suwardi defeated fifth seeds Ko Sung-hyun-Shin Baek-cheol 21-18, 6-21, 21-19 in the other semi-final.

 

The Malaysian will now switch their focus to the Celcom-Axiata Malaysia Open Premier Series which begins at the Malawati Stadium in Shah Alam on Tuesday.
