Malaysia’s bid to secure a medal in the World Junior Championships ended after bowing out in the quarterfinal stage.

In the boys’ singles, Shaqeem Shahyar fought valiantly for 64 minutes before going down 16-21 21-19 17-21 to Yonathan Ramlie of Indonesia. Teammate, Wyman Goh had to concede a walkover to third seed Li Yunze of China due to an aggravated back injury sustained during his third round match yesterday.

Yap Roy King-Gan Jing Err’s determined run meanwhile came to an end against Thailand's Ratchapol Makkasasithorn-Benyapa Aimsaard 19-21 17-21.

In the boys’ doubles, China's third seeds Dai Enyi-Feng Yanzhe stopped the marauding pair of Wan Arif Junaidi-Haikal Nazri 21-13 21-15.
