AN overnight fever did not stop national number one Lee Chong Wei from reaching the second round of the Malaysian Open at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. 

Seasoned campaigner Wong Choong Hann and KLRC Bhd’s Sairul Amar Ayob gave better performances in their chase to win valuable Olympic ranking points and joined Chong Wei in the second round. 

The top seeded Chong Wei, who is now ranked number two in the world and virtually assured of a place in the Beijing Games, had to dig deep into his reserves to beat compatriot Mohd Hafiz Hashim 21-17, 21-16 in a 35-minute match. 

Hafiz dished out a good attacking game, which had been missing from his armoury for some time. But a lack of fitness let him down. 

Chong Wei will be up against Poland’s Wacha Przemyslaw today and he said that he expected a tough match.

JIBES and boos from the home fans did not send world number one Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong crashing to an embarrassing first-round defeat in the Malaysian Open at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. 

The top seeded pair started the tournament as the defending champions for the first time and they had to stage a strong fightback from a game down to beat third ranked Indonesians Hendra Gunawan-Joko Riyadi 14-21, 21-17, 21-15. 

Kien Keat-Boon Heong had stared at the exit when they trailed 11-15 in the rubber game. But they got their act back together and went on to seal the match without dropping a point. In fact, the taunting from the fans when they trailed the Indonesians fuelled their fight for survival. 

Kien Keat was not looking too pleased and said that the home fans' reactions did not help make things better. 

“The Indonesian pair were making things difficult for us from the start and we had hoped for better support from our own fans,” he said.
