PASIR GUDANG: Shuttlers Lim Khim Wah and Goh V Shem are the only survivors for Malaysia in the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold tournament after Chong Wei Feng's walkover to Sourabh from India, and Lim Yin Loo-Lee Meng Yean's loss of 17-21, 17-21 to China’s juniors Ou Dongni-Xiong Mengjing in the semi-finals.

Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem's opponents in the final will be another top form pair from Singapore - Danny Bawa Chrisnanta-Chayut Triyachart.

 

The duo will have to play better and harder in the final in order to pull off the champion feat.

 

There were few times where Khim Wah-V Shem were at the edge of losing before sealing an 18-21, 21-18, 21-17 in a lethargic semi-final victory against third seeds Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Markis Kido on Saturday.

The Malaysians blew the opening game by playing sluggishly after a 13-8 lead. The second and rubber games were as breathtaking as both pairs continued to exchange quick and tricky shots in a very close game.

 

Eventually, Markis made several crucial mistakes at the most critical moment of the game that allowed Khim Wah-V Shem to win a ticket to the final.

 

“On the first set, we got off well but made mistakes and started to lose focus towards the end of the first game. Frankly, we got slightly distracted after that,” Khim Wah admitted their weak performance for the first set.

 

“We tried to calm ourselves before the start of second game, we tried to clear our mind and regained our focus ... fortunately, we did enough to nail it.” "We will have to be more consistent in order to do well in the final" said V Shem.

 

“We do not want to disappoint our fans here in Malaysia. We will try our best to do well to win our third Open title at home,” said V Shem.

 

The duo are the defending champion of the Malaysian Open GP Gold at Juara Stadium. They also won the Malaysian Open Superseries Premier January 2014.
