    World number one Lin Dan of China joins Lee Chong Wei and Peter Gade to enter the second round of the Malaysian Open badminton championships.

    Lin Dan, the world champion and last year's losing finalist, defeated Jamaluddin Mohd Hazwan of Malaysia 21-15, 21-19 in a first round clash.

    The Chinese player will face Malaysia's Yeoh Kay Bin who beat India's Anand Pawar 13-21, 21-15, 21-14.

    Defending champion and home favorite Lee Chong Wei is looking to complete a hat-trick of wins in the open after having clinched the title twice before consecutively.

    Lee swept aside Sukma gold medallist Mohd Syafiq Jamaluddin 21-9, 21-14, to set up a clash with Anup Sridhar of India.

    Danish world number three Peter Gade, fresh from winning the Singapore Open last week, overcame Tommy Sugiarto from Indonesia 21-17, 21-10.

    Roslin Hashim also made it through by beating Shahruddin Mohd Hafiz 21-9, 21 10 in an all-Malaysian encounter.
