PETALING JAYA: Independent shuttler Lee Zii Jia has been shown the exit in the first round of the Singapore Open by China's Weng Hongyang on Wednesday (June 7).
Zii Jia, the world No. 10, lost 20-22, 21-16, 19-21 in 64 minutes to Hongyang, who was runner-up at the Malaysian Masters two weeks ago.
Independent pair Ong Yew Sin-Teo Ee Yi also reached the second round after beating Christo Popov-Toma Junior Popov of France 21-18, 21-13.
They will play Indonesians Pramudya Kusumawardana-Yeremia Rambitan on Thursday (June 8).
"It's a tricky match and the Indonesian pair will like the faster shuttlecocks and the draught at the stadium.
"I hope Ong-Teo are able to overcome the situation," said Rosman.
