THE Malaysian women’s team’s aspirations to become the first national side to qualify for the Uber Cup semi-finals suffered a serious jolt when they went down 2-3 to Denmark in their final Group Y tie at the Istora Senayan in Jakarta yesterday.

Failing to top the group, the Malaysians, who are the fourth seeds, go into the same half of the knockout phase as the top three seeds – China, Japan and South Korea.

DOUBLES shuttler Lee Wan Wah says that Malaysia will not make the mistake of under-estimating their opponents in the Thomas Cup Finals after getting an easy ride into the quarter-finals from South Korea.

Tomorrow, Malaysia will be up against the winners of today's tie between Japan and Germany.

A full-strength Malaysia beat a deliberately weakened South Korea 4-1 yesterday to emerge as the Group B winners. Wah Wah and Choong Tan Fook were the losers in the tie against the scratch pair of Jung Jae-sung-Lee Jae-jin. They lost 22-20, 10-21, 16-21.

The Koreans fielded Athens Olympic Games silver medallist and third ranked singles player Shon Seung-mo for the first match and named doubles player Hwang Ji-man as the third singles.
