Thammasin showed promise at the start of first set by winning the first 2 points of the set, one with a lucky net shot and another with a cross court smashing; however, Lin Dan spent the next 5 minutes trashing the Thai player by widening his lead at 11-4, and then took the first set 21-12 in 16 minutes.

Second set was the repeat of first set, where Lin Dan was leading 11-4, and eventually Thammasin ran out of steam against the Chinese. Lin then took the game with 21-12 and eased into second round.

Lin Dan will face Taiwan’s Hsu Shao Wen in the second round.
