Thailand Open: Vivian-Khe Wei advance to quarters

Malaysian women doubles pair Vivian Hoo-Woon Khe Wei faced no problem in advancing to the quarter finals of 2015 Thailand Open Grand Prix (GP) after winning their second round tie yesterday.

Vivian-Khe Wei, who are also seeded second in the competition, defeated Hong Kong pair Chan Tsz Ka-Yuen Sin Ying 21-17, 21-13 in just 31 minutes at the Thunder Done, Muangthong Thani.

Awaiting them in the quarter finals are South Korea duo Go Ah Ra-Yoo Hae Won who defeated their opponents Apriani Rahayu-Jauza Fadhila Sugiarto 21-16, 21-10.

According to Vivian, even though they recorded a straight sets victory, there are still few weaknesses that need to be fixed, especially when it comes to attacking.

Another national women’s pair Amelia Alicia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho also advanced at the expense of Komala Dewi-Vita Marissa of Indonesia, beating them 21-16, 21-15 to join their teammates in the quarters.


Now that they are within touching distance of the title, our Malaysian pair of Vivian-Khe Wei are more than capable of claiming the Thailand Open. With stiff competitions such as Komala-Vita Marissa eliminated, hopes are on Malaysians to deliver in this competition. Amelia-Fie Cho are also in the contention, and hopefully we can witness an-all-Malaysian-final.
