RAZIF Latif-Woon Khe Wei advanced to the mixed doubles' main draw of the Singapore Open but national elite back-up singles player Tan Chun Seang was shown the door in the qualifying rounds yesterday.

Razif-Khe Wei were lucky in the opening round when Singapore's Hendri Kurniawan Saputra-Vanessa Neo retired midway in the second game. The Singaporean pair had turned on the heat with a stunning 21-19 victory in the first game.

Razif-Khe Wei were leading 11-8 when Hendri-Vanessa decided to retire.

 

In the deciding second round match, Razif-Khe Wei thrashed Netherlands' Koen Ridder-Yao Jie 21-9, 21-14 in 18 minutes to book their spot in the main draw.

 

The Malaysians face Singapore's Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Yao Lei in the first round today.

 

Razif-Khe Wei are using the tournament and also next week's Indonesia Open to prepare for the World Championships in August.

 

Former national pair Chow Pak Chuu-Hong Chieng Hun also made the main draw of the men's doubles, after defeating Sune Gavnholt-Christian Lind Thomsen 21-10, 21-15.
