Malaysia will unfortunately have no representatives in the quarter-finals of the OUE Singapore Open Superseries after Goh V Shem/ Tan Wee Kiong went down to world number one, Lee Yong Dae/ Yoo Yeon Seong 14/21, 13/21 today.
The Koreans were also the winners during last week’s, Celcom Axiata Malaysia Open 2016 when they played against V Shem/ Wee Kiong in the second round.
The Malaysians who are currently ranked No. 12 in the world have only about two weeks before the qualifying period for Rio Olympics ends.
As the competition is getting tougher every week, the 2014 Commonwealth champions will have to do well in their next tournament which is the Badminton Asia Championships (BAC) in Wuhan, China end of this month.
