PETALING JAYA: Mak Hee Chun and Chow Pak Chuu’s run came to an end in the quarter-finals of the Taiwan Open in Taipei.
The pair who were the last remaining Malaysians went down to Japan’s Hiroyuki Saeki-Ryota Taohata in straight games 21-16, 21-18 in 34 minutes on Friday.
Hee Chun and Pak Chuu started well in the opening game, but with proceedings tied at four-all, the Japanese turned on the power to stay ahead to clinch the first set in 14 minutes.
The second game found the Malaysians in an all too-familiar territory as they fell behind again after being squared at four-all.
Hee Chun and Pak Chuu fought back to level at 12-all but they ran out of steam as the Japanese completed the game 21-18 for the win.
In the men’s singles, China’s Lin Dan had no trouble disposing off Japan’s Takuma Ueda in 21-15, 21-10 in 43 minutes. The five-time world champion will face another Japanese shuttler, the unseeded Riichi Takeshita next.
