Sudirman Cup: Malaysia handed S. Korea rematch

Malaysia will be taking on South Korea for the second time in the Sudirman Cup after being drawn against them in the quarter-finals.

Lee Chong Wei and co claimed a 3-2 triumph over the South Koreans during the group stages, before confirming their spot in the last eight by beating India 3-2 as well.

But national doubles coach Jeremy Gan knows that their victory over South Korea does not signify anything, and that the Koreans are more than capable of bouncing back in the quarters. In fact, he claimed the Koreans will be looking to do the exact same thing, though that should not deter Malaysia from giving it their all.

“We know that South Korea will play better in order to avenge their loss, so the national squad needs to prepare better in order to face them for the second time,” said Jeremy as quoted from Kosmo.

Should Malaysia win tonight, they will either face Japan or Denmark in the semi-finals, depending on the outcome of that tie.
