THE much anticipated semi-finals showdown between Hafiz Hashim and Wong Choong Hann will not materialise as the latter, down with a fever, conceded a walkover in the quarter-finals of the Kedah Open in Alor Star yesterday.

Hafiz, the second seed, had to work hard for his 21-16, 18-21, 21-16 win over 2010-2012 project player Chong Wei Feng in the quarter-finals which lasted for 45 minutes.

However, top seed Lee Chong Wei hardly faced any problems beating K. Yogendran 21-17, 21-12 and will meet joint third seed Yeoh Kay Bin in the semi-finals.

Kay Bin came from a game down against veteran Roslin Hashim before winning 19-21, 21-11, 21-6 after a 50-minute battle.
In the women’s singles, Julia Wong and Anita Kaur remained on course for a title showdown with comprehensive victories.

Julia, the top seed, beat Daphne Ng 21-13, 21-14 while Anita overcame Ooi Swee Wern 21-17, 21-19 in the last eight. Julia next plays Stephanie Shalini, who beat national junior Vivian Hoo 21-13, 21-17, in the last four.

However, Anita will have her work cut out as she will meet the hardworking Tee Jing Yee, who defeated fellow national junior Sanatasha Saniru 21-17, 7-21, 21-15.

In the mixed doubles, junior pair Tan Wee Kiong-Woon Khe Wei moved a step closer to winning their first local title when they beat junior pair Lutfi Zaim Khalid-Goh Liu Ying 16-21, 21-16, 21-18.

Wee Kiong-Khe Wei is expected to be tested to the limit by Gan Teik Chai-Fong Chew Yen today. Teik Chai-Chew Yen defeated project squad’s Chan Peng Soon-Amelia Anscelly 21-13, 21-7.
