Mew Choo Scores Second Victory In Asia Cup

NEW DELHI, April 15 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's veteran player, Wong Mew Choo, crossed her second hurdle of the Yonex-Sunrise Badminton Asia Championship 2010 with ease, defeating her Singaporean rival.

In the treble set, Mew Choo took advantage of the lethargic Zang Beiwen and knocked her out at 20-22, 21-9, 21-14.

"Though leading in the fist game I made some mistakes because the shuttle was fast, I lost the game. But in the second set she (Zang) looked tired and I continued scoring points, I was more focused," she told Bernama after the victory here on Thursday.

Her quarter-final match tomorrow will be either against India's ace player Saina Nehwal or Malaysia's Lydia Wong Pex Xian, both players taking the court later today.

In the women's doubles played earlier today, Goh Liu Ying partnered Lim Yin Boo to beat Bangladeshi pair Alina Sultana-Aktar Shapla 21-11, 21-13 while Vivian Hoo Kah Mun and Woon Khe Wei wiped out Nepal's Pooja Shrestha and Sujana Shrestha 21-3, 21-2.

Two of Malaysia's men's doubles teams also advanced to the next round after Mak Hee Chun and Tan Wee Kiong defeated Indonesians duo Bona Septano and Rian Sukmawan 21-14, 21-18 and Hoon Thien How and Ong Soon Hock pair outplayed Vietnam's Duong Bao Duc and Pham Cao Hieu 21-11, 21-13.

Women's singles: Mew Choo (MAS) bt Zang (SIN) 20-22, 21-9, 21-14

Women's doubles: Liu Ying-Yin Boo bt Alina-Altar (INA) 21-11,21-13, Kah Mun-Khe Wei (MAS) bt Pooj-Sujana (NEP) 21-3, 21-2.
