PETALING JAYA: It was a sad end for world No. 6 mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying (pic) at the Indian Open.

The All-England runners-up were forced to concede a walkover to top seeds Zheng Siwei-Chen Qingchen of China in the semi-finals in New Delhi after Liu Ying fell ill yesterday.

Olympic Games silver medallists Peng Soon-Liu Ying had beaten South Koreans Kim Gi-jung-Shin Seung-chan 22-20, 19-21, 21-15 in the quarter-finals on Friday.

“It’s just not my day. I’ve been coughing non-stop and don’t feel good at all. I’ve decided to pull out to give myself some time to heal before the home tournament in Malaysia,” said Liu Ying.

“Hopefully, I’ll recover in time for the Malaysian Open ... I’m just keeping my fingers crossed.”

The Malaysian Open Superseries Premier begins in Kuching on Wednesday.
