Malaysia’s own men’s doubles pair Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik continued their tremendous display this year by stunning Muhammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan to take a spot in the semis of the Fuzhou Open.
In their head to head, this is only the second time Chia-Soh has prevailed over Ahsan-Setiawn – a pair they have lost four times consecutively to in prior matches.
We hope we can go further. Our mental approach has changed. We had a couple of close losses to Ahsan and Hendra, but today we played our style. Not like the last two matches where we were nervous.” – Aaron Chia
With this, Aaron and Wooi Yik has overtaken V Shem and Wee Kiong in provisional rankings. Perhaps we finally will have more players to look forward to in future tournaments!
