NEW DELHI, April 3 (Bernama) -- Malaysia's challenge in the men's doubles competition of the Yonex Sunrise-BWF Metlife India Open Super Series badminton championships fizzled out even before the quarterfinals.

The only men's doubles pair that remained in the competition, Goh V Shem/Lim Khim Wah lost 18-21, 21-15, 16-21 to South Korea's Ko Sung Hyun/Shin Baek Choel after an intense three-set thriller which lasted 53 minutes.

"It is not so good thus far. All our men's double pairs lost already," doubles coach Rosman Razak told Bernama after the fourth pair was shown the exit at the Siri Fort Sports Complex here, today.

In the men's singles competition, world number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei lived up to his top billing by strolling past India's Sourabh Varma 21-9, 21-6.

Chong Wei will meet India's Kashyap Parupalli in the quarterfinals tomorrow, the fourth time both will be meeting since the Indian player came on stage.....
