KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles Chan Peng Soon-Cheah Yee See returned to winning ways in the Macau Open on Wednesday following a disappointing outing in Europe last month.
Peng Soon-Yee See defeated Indonesia's Yantoni Edy Saputra-Marsheilla Gisca Islami 21-13, 21-14 in the first round and will play Malaysia's Arif Abdul Latif and Indonesia's Rusydina Antardayu Riodingin on Thursday.
At last month’s Denmark Open and Dutch Open, Peng Soon-Yee See crashed out in the first round.
Peng Soon said: "We are happy to have won because we lost confidence after the early exits in Europe.
“Hopefully, we can continue our momentum tomorrow,” he said.
Hoo Pang Ron-Peck Yen Wei also made the second round with a 21-15, 21-18 win over Taiwan's Yang Po Hsuan-Wen Hao Yun.
The Malaysians face sixth seeds Seon Seung Jae-Kim Ha Na of South Korea next.
Compatriot Ho Yen Mei defeated Rusydina 21-17, 21-10 in her first round women’s singles match and she will face Korean qualifier Lee Min Ji on Thursday.
In the women's doubles, fourth seeds Lim Yin Loo-Yap Cheng Wen lived up to their billing when they saw off Taiwan's Lin Xiao Min-Wu Fang Chien 19-21, 21-17, 21-16. They play Korea's Baek Ha Na-Lee Yu Rim in the second round.
Independent shuttler Chong Wei Feng cruised into the men’s singles third round when he overcame Indonesia's Panji Ahmad Maulana 21-18, 21-14. Wei Feng plays Japan's Koki Watanabe on Thursday.
Koki defeated Malaysian shuttler Liew Daren 21-14, 21-19 in the second round.
