Congrats to Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin Rumsani

Thursday, 19 January 2017 : Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin Rumsani made up for his seniors’ absence by pulling off their biggest career win at the second-tier Malaysian Masters badminton championships.

Unseeded Sze Fei-Izzuddin dumped seventh seeds and world No. 30 Or Chin Chung-Tang Chun Man of Hong Kong 16-21, 21-18, 21-18 in an exciting 57-minute men’s doubles first-round match at the Sibu Indoor Stadium.

The world No. 61 next face Taiwanese Lu Ching-yao-Yang Po-han for a place in the quarter-finals.

In the absence of Olympic silver medallists Tan Wee Kiong-Goh V Shem and national champions Teo Ee Yi-Ong Yew Sin, 19-year-olds Sze Fei-Izzuddin certainly served a pleasant surprise with their fast-attacking play in their first Grand Prix Gold tournament.

“We’ve never experienced such feelings before. Winning a big match in front of our home fans feels good,” said Izzuddin.

Sze Fei added: “There was no pressure on us. But we’re more consistent now, getting better in every tournament.”

Sze Fei-Izzuddin were paired up by national coach Cheah Soon Kit in January last year. And they managed to reach five finals, winning two of them at the fourth-tier Swiss International Challenge and fifth-tier Singapore International Series.

Back-up shuttlers Tan Chee Tean-Tan Wee Gieen also made it a good day for Malaysia when they marched into the second round together with Hoon Thien How-Teo Kok Siang.

Lee Ying Ying, the 2015 World Junior runner-up, also made a memorable GP Gold debut when she defeated Lyanny Alessandra Mainaky of Indonesia 21-11, 21-18 in the women’s singles first round.

Former world junior champion Goh Jin Wei and Lim Yin Fun also cleared their opening matches.

Jin Wei is, however, a doubtful starter for today’s second-round clash with Lee Chia-hsin of Taiwan.
