Copenhagen: Malaysia’s second men’s singles -  Chong Wei Feng suffered a devastating first round exit on day 2 of badminton World Championships at Copenhagen.

The 16th seed Malaysian wasted a six-point lead in the second set and a five-point advantage in the rubber game for a 21-17, 22-24, 16-21 defeat to England's Rajiv Ouseph in 65 minutes.

Wei Feng dominated the first set, and he was once leading 17-14 in the second set, but the resilient Ouseph refused to go down without a fight. Ouseph started launching series of smashes towards Wei Feng's baseline, and he slowly chip away at Wei Feng’s advantage. Ouseph then saved three match points and grabbed a game point at 23-22 before levelling the match 24-22.

The decider again tested Ouseph’s patience as he pegged back Wei Feng from 10-6 down to lead 13-11. And that provided the springboard as Ouseph’s patient play started to bring the errors from Chong Wei Feng and finally clinched the hard fought victory from the Malaysian.


"Ouseph hit some quality shots at the end of second game, and I let the pressure got to me in the third set. I am very disappointed at my performance," said Wei Feng.

In the men’s doubles, the reunited pair of Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah celebrated a 21-12, 21-11 victory against South Africa's Andries Malan-Willem Viljoen, earning them a second round meet with sixth seeds Lee Sheng Mu-Tsai Shia Hsin of Taiwan on Wednesday.


"We still try to get use to each other since we haven't play together for quite a while. I am sure we will get better as the tournament progress," said Khim Wah.


Three Malaysian women's doubles Ng Hui Ern-Ng Hui Lin, Lim Yin Loo-Lee Meng Yean and Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho also marched into the second round after wins against Tosin Damilola Atolagbe-Fatima Azeez of Nigeria (21-4, 21-10) and England's Gabrielle Adcock-Lauren Smith (21-9, 21-19) respectively.
