BADMINTON: Second stringers to face tough test
Nov 23: THE top national players had a reasonably good outing at the recently concluded Singapore Open and starting today, the second stringers will be on test at the Magnum-ABC Malaysia Satellite badminton tournament in Alor Star. And the best bets to do Malaysia proud in the men's singles are either Lee Tsuen Seng, James Chua or Sairul Amar Ayob.
But it is Englishman Andrew Smith who has been seeded top in the draw which was released by the International Badminton Federation and he is drawn to meet Australian Stuart Brehaut in the final.
Malaysia, who have entered a number of back-up squad and Bukit Jalil Sports School players, should provide the fight to the 30-odd foreign field.
Indonesia's eight players are all from their junior squad and they come with good credential, at least at the junior level international competitions.
England's David Lindley and Kristian Roebuck are the men's doubles topseeds with New Zealanders John Gordon and Daniel Shirley the second seeds.
But they could find the going tough as Malaysia have entered a number of strong pairs, including the scratch combination of Choong Tan Fook-Chew Choon Eng, who finished runners-up in the China Open a fortnight ago, Fairuzizuan Tazari- Lin Woon Fui, who reached the Singapore Open quarter-finals, and the improving pair of Gan Teik Chai-Zakry Abdul Latif.
In the women's section, Indonesia's Selvi Antarini has got top billing and she is expected to meet Malaysia's Woon Sze Mei in the final. Malaysia's Wong Pei Ty-Chin Ee Hui have been ranked No 1 in the women's doubles, while England's Liza Parker-Suzanne Rayappan are seeded second in a field of 20 pairs.

BADMINTON: A breeze for top Malaysians in Alor Star
SIX Indonesians made their way to the women's singles quarter-finals as Malaysia's number two and second seeded Woon Sze Mei fell by the wayside in the ABC Malaysia Satellite badminton championships at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium in Alor Star yesterday.
Sze Mei, a Uber Cup player, was defeated by Indonesian newcomer Pia Zabedah 11-8,13-11,11-7 in a match which lasted just over an hour. Only Anita Kaur and Amelia Anscelly carried Malaysia's flag into the quarter-finals and they are expected to be seriously tested by the Indonesian lasses at that stage.
Anita, who defeated fellow Malaysian Lydia Cheah Li-Ya 10-13,13-11,11-5, meets Sylvia Kurniawan, while Alicia plays Pia, the disposer of Sze Mei.
Second seed Stuart Brehaut of Australia crashed out of the men's singles third round when he was defeated 15-4,11-15,15-10 by Malaysia's Raymond Steven.
Malaysia's top ranked players like James Chua, Lee Tsuen Seng, K. Yogendran and Sairul Amar Ayob had a good second round outing yesterday.
In the men's doubles, top seeds David Lindley and Kristian Roebuck of England had to dig deep into their reserves to beat Indonesian pair Rian Sukmawan and Yoga Ukikasah 7-15,15-9,17-15 in a match which lasted 80 minutes.
But second seeds John Gordon and Daniel Shirley of New Zealand were beaten by Indonesia's Rendra Wijaya and Yonathan Dasuki.
Malaysia's new partnership of Choong Tan Fook and Chew Choon Eng qualified for the quarter-finals with relative ease.
They took just 15 minutes to beat Indonesia's Tommy Sugiato and Achmad Rivai 15-3,15-1. Another Malaysian pair Faruzizuan Tazari and Lin Woon Fui, who made it to the quarter-finals of the Singapore Open last week, were also in good form as they beat Vietnam's Minh Nguyen Quang and Hai Tran Thanh 15-2,15-2.

All-Malaysian affair in women’s doubles final
BY LOGANATH VELLOO
ALOR STAR: When all eyes were on the men's shuttlers, the women's doubles players sprang a surprise by securing Malaysia one title in the Magnum Malaysian Satellite Badminton Championships at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium here last night.
The See Phui Leng-Fong Chew Yen and Ooi Sock Ai-Mooi Ying Hau pairs set up an all-Malaysian final with straight-game victories in the semi-finals yesterday.

The Indonesians will take on Choong Tan Fook-Chew Choon Eng in the final today.

Unknown Vietnamese Upset Top Seed To Win Satellite Title
ALOR STAR, Nov 28 (Bernama) -- A virtually unknown shuttler from Vietnam pulled off a major upset by beating top seed Lee Tsuen Seng to clinch the Magnum ABC Malaysia Satellite title at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium in Suka Menanti here Sunday night.
Nguen Tien Minh beat Malaysian top seed Tsuen Seng 15-11, 9-15, 15-12 in a three set encounter which lasted for almost two hours.
Even the presence of the Sultan of Kedah who gave away the prizes later, failed to lift Tsuen Seng's play.
Tien Minh pocketed RM2,660 while Tsuen Seng received RM1,330.
The tournament jointly organised by the Asian Badminton Confederation (ABC) and Magnum Corporation Berhad, saw participation from 197 players from Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, England, Australia and New Zealand since Nov 23.
The women's final was an all-Indonesian affair between Kristin Maria and Firdasari Adianti. Maria won the title after another three-set match which ended 8-11, 11-2, 11-8.
In the mixed doubles, New Zealand pair Shirley Daniel and Runesten Petersten comfortably beat England's Roebuck Kristian-Parker Liza 15-10, 15-13 for the title.

BADMINTON: Nguyen Tien upsets Tsuen Seng for title
IT was a historic moment for young Vietnamese shuttler Minh Nguyen Tien when he knocked out Malaysian shuttler and favourite Lee Tsuen Seng to win the men's singles crown in the Magnum ABC Malaysia Satellite badminton championships at the Sultan Abdul Halim Stadium in Alor Star yesterday.
Nguyen Tien, who came to this competition without any strong credentials, was the toast last night as he defeated the Malaysian 15-11, 9-15, 15-12 in 92 minutes.
This is the first time that a player from Vietnam has won a title in an international competition.
For Tsuen Seng, the defeat by the little known Vietnamese who comes from a country where badminton is not the top priority sport, is a big blow to his career.
"I should have wrapped up the match in the rubber set when I was leading 11-5," said the frustrated Tsuen Seng after the match.
"But all of a sudden I became very tired and allowed the Vietnamese to catch up and beat me in the end."
It was close in the first set and both players scored point for point until 11-11 when Nguyen Tien took the last four points in a row for victory.
In the second set Tsuen Seng raced to a 9-4 lead before the Vietnamese caught up at 9-8. But the Malaysian tightened his game and won the set 15-9 in 28 minutes.
In the rubber, everything looked bright for Tsuen Seng when he led 11-5 but the young Vietnamese university student took ten straight points for this historic win.
"Unlike the Malaysian, I was very relaxed throughout the match as I had nothing to lose, " said Nguyen Tien.
"And that made me play better even when I was trailing in the last set."
Malaysia made up for their loss in the singles when their sctratch doubles pair Choong Tan Fook and Chew Choon Eng easily defeated Indonesian pair Aprida Hendra Gunawan and Joko Riyadi, who are ranked six in their country, 15-11, 15-4.
Maria Kristin won the women's singles title after beating her compatriot Adianti Firdasari 8-11, 11-2, 11-8 in the final.
In the all Malaysian women's doubles final, See Phui Leng and Fong Chew Yen beat Ooi Sock Ai and Mooi Hing Yau 15-3,15-17,15-8.
New Zealanders Daniel Shirley and Sara Runesten Petersten easily defeated English pair Kristian Roebuck and Liza Parker 15-3, 15-3 to win the mixed doubles title.
RESULTS (All finals) — MEN, Singles: Minh Nguyen Tien (Vie) bt Lee Tseun Seng (Mas) 15-11, 9-15, 15-12;
Doubles: Choong Tan Fook-Chew Choon Eng (Mas) Aprida Hendra Gunawan -Joko Riyadi (Indon) 15-11, 15-4.
WOMEN, Singles: Maria Kristin (Ina) bt Adianti Firdasari (Ina) 8-11, 11-2, 11-8;
