IT WAS a miserable outing for mixed pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying who failed to live up their seedings, crashing out in the first round against South Korea’s Kim Ki-jung-Jung Kyung-eun at the Tianhe Gymnasium, Guangzhou today.

The world No. 5 were nowhere near their usual best as they lost 18-21, 19-21 to the unseeded Koreans.

“It was not a good day for us. Liu Ying was not in the best condition and I tried to cover for her but it didn’t work,” explained Peng Soon.

Liu Ying added that she injured her hand during a training session in Hong Kong and could not bring out her best game.Miserable outing: Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying were beaten 18-21, 19-21 by South Korea's Kim Ki-jung-Jung Kyung-eun.

“I injured my hand on the last day of training in Hong Kong but received treatment for it,” said Liu Ying.
“Today however, I just could not play my game and was not up to mark. It is certainly a disappointing result.”

Malaysia’s interest in mixed doubles also came to an end with Ong Jian Guo-Lim Yin Loo getting outclassed by Indonesia’s Tontowi Ahmad-Liliyana Natsir, losing 14-21, 11-21.

Women’s singles shuttler Tee Jing Yi also experienced a disappointing day as she crashed out in the first round, losing to Japan’s Sayaka Takahashi 17-21, 17-21.

“I am disappointed because although I managed to keep pace with Sayaka, my finishing was poor,” said Jing Yi.

“I also miss having Sonia (Cheah) here because if she was here we could have shared our load and encouraged one another.”

Sonia suffered an Achilles injury two weeks ago and was ruled out of the world meet.

The only positive news came courtesy of men’s pair Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah who overcame Scotsmen Martin Campbell-Patrick Machugh 22-20, 21-17.

They will take on team-mates Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong in the second round.
