BUKIT JALIL: It’s rare to see a couple travel the world and play good badminton together.

But that is the adventurous journey of mixed doubles shuttler Chris Adcock and his wife Gabrielle.

The couple tied the knot last September and are enjoying the best of both worlds.

Just a month after their marriage, the English pair won their first Super Series title in Hong Kong.

And on Thursday, the Adcocks stormed into the quarter-finals of the Maybank Malaysian Open after beating Germany’s Michael Fuchs-Birgit Michels 23-21, 16-21, 21-6 at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.

On Friday, the 25-year-old Chris and Gabrielle, a year younger, will face a stern challenge when they take on top seeds Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei of China for a place in the semi-finals.
