KUALA LUMPUR: Two former BAM players, Misbun Ramdan Misbun and Tan Chun Seang, continued to show that they have not lost their touch when they reached the men’s singles semi-finals in the Carlton Irish Open in Dublin and the Vietnam Open Grand Prix Gold in Ho Chi Minh City respectively.

Ex-BAM shuttler Misbun Ramdan Misbun reached the semi-final of the Irish Open after beating Emil Holst of Denmark in straight games in the quarter-final on Friday.

Ex-BAM shuttler Misbun Ramdan Misbun reached the semi-final of the Irish Open after beating Emil Holst of Denmark in straight games in the quarter-final on Friday.

On Friday, national champion Ramdan stayed on track for his fourth international title this year after beating Emil Holst of Denmark 21-10, 21-13 in just 29 minutes in the quarter-finals.

He will meet unseeded German Lukas Schmidt in the last four.

World No. 48 Ramdan, who left the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) in January to train under his father Misbun, has won three titles so far as an independent shuttler – the Portuguese International, Forza Slovenia International and Hellas International in Greece.

There was also good news in the women’s doubles in Dublin when the Ng sisters – Hui Lin and Hui Ern – defeated England’s Helena Lewczynska-Emily Westwood 21-6, 21-12.

They will take on qualifiers Imogen Bankier-Kirsty Gilmour of Scotland in the semi-final on Saturday.

In the Vietnam Open GP Gold, former Thomas Cupper Chun Seang, who left BAM in 2011, defeated national back-up shuttler Choong Yee Han 21-18, 21-13 in the quarter-finals.

He will take on Simon Santoso of Indonesia, who beat China’s Xue Song 21-23, 22-20, 21-8 for a place in the final.

It was, however, all over for former All-England champion Mohd Hafiz Hashim, who lost 16-21, 14-21 to Shon Wan-ho of South Korea in the quarter-finals.
