Liew Darren had to dig deep once again against Taiwanese player and will be meeting world number 1 Lee Chong Wei tomorrow in the first round of the Malaysia Open 2012 Super Series.

"Old timer" Wong Choong Hann will be meeting Pablo Abian of Spain in the main draw after winning younger compatriot Arif Latif in a well fought match 22-24,21-17,21-14 after all experience plays a big part in the game. Anyways, the match of the day today in the qualification stage, would be the last match between Indonesia's Andre K Tedjono who failed to make it to the main draw and Tien Chen Hou of Chinese Taipei. This match went down the wire when they both were fighting neck to neck.
Forcing each other for errors and points. Andre Tejdno was at match point first at 20-18. The whole crowd were supportive for both players. At the end of the deciding set Tien Chen Hou picked up the pace and played his net play brilliantly to force Andre Tedjono to be defensive. After winning the match, Tien Chen Hou threw his sweaty t-shirt to the crowd who has been supportive and cheering him on! Tomorrow the match to look out for would be Lin Dan and Viktor Axelson Denmark's upcoming star!
It's only the first day of the Malaysia Open Super Series 2012 and there's already thousands of rackets to be strung. It's major headaches for the Yonex stringers as they had to be early at the stadium to string it and had to stay extra late as well. There are currently only 3 stringers in this event.
