The Japanese's start to the match offered plenty of cause for concern when Daren took the first set easily with 21-9 win.

 

But Ueda was much the stronger towards the end of second set when he fought back from 20-19 down to triumph at 23-21.

In the decider, Ueda was simply too strong, too relentless and too confident in himself; Dismembered by Ueda's endless offense, Daren simply wilted with 15-21 lost.

"I want to beat him so badly after my Thomas Cup defeat. I was leading 20-19 in the second set, but I just couldn't finish. Despite the lost, I've regained my confidence after the Thomas Cup setback," said the dissapointed Daren Liew.

Other Malaysian singles shuttlers – Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Zulfadli Zulkiffli and Chiang Jiann Shiarng – also crashed out in first round.

Malaysia will have four men's doubles playing in the second round on Thursday. Hoon Thien How-Tan Boon Heong will take on compatriots Lim Khim Wah-Ow Yao Han, Goh V Shem-Tan Wee Kiong will clash against world number nine Markis Kido-Gideon Markus Fernaldi of Indonesia, and Chan Kwong Beng-Chiang Jiann Shiarng of Kawasaki Badminton Club will play former All England champion Liu Xiaolong-Qiu Zihan of China.
