  • Malaysia all-out in India Open

    PETALING JAYA: Malaysia will have no representatives in the final of the India Open GP Gold after both their women’s and mixed pairs crashed out in the semi-finals in Lucknow.

    SEA Games champions Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei were shown the exit on Saturday by youngsters Yu Xiaohan-Huang Yaqiong of China, losing 18-21, 12-21.

    The Malaysians, who crashed out in the first round of the Malaysian Open last week to new pair Ma Jin-Tang Yuanting of China, had a good start as they led 17-14 in the first game.

    But Vivian-Khe Wei, the world No. 18, succumbed to nerves and surrendered the lead to lose 18-21. Xiaohan-Yaqiong, the world No. 67, then ramped up the pressure to lead 11-3 in the second game before comfortably sealing their place in the final after 40 minutes.
