On-form mixed doubles pair, Choong Hon Jian-Toh Ee Wei continued their ascendancy with another stellar performance at the YONEX Slovenia International.

Both aged 20, Hon Jian-Ee Wei had no issues surging past Indonesia's Muh Erwiansyah-Sofy Asharunnisa 21-18 21-18 to seal their second international title.

It is an encouraging start for the world No. 263 who had won the Polish Open in March.

Upstarts, Low Yeen Yuan-Valeree Siow then doubled the nation's joy by lifting the women's doubles crown.

The unheralded pair stunned third seeds and world number 133 Isabella Nielsen-Marie Steffensen of Denmark 21-11 21-15 for their first senior title.
