Vietnam gets off to a flying start


QĐND – Thursday, April 15, 2010, 21:3 (GMT+7)

Vietnamese mixed duo Le Ngoc Nguyen Nhung and Huynh Nguyen Khang advanced to play in the main round of the Yonex Sunrise Badminton Asia Championships.


The pair defeated Karuna Dinulsa and Chandrika de Silva of Sri Lanka 21-12, 17-21, 21-16 on April 13 in the second qualifier in New Delhi, India.


Vietnam’s key player Nguyen Tien Minh who is seeded No. 4 at the tournament will play the unknown Shao Wen Shu from Chinese Taipei, who is ranked No 259, in the men’s singles.


Minh, who is placed seventh in the world, expects to meet Malaysian Muhammad Hafiz Hashim, who Minh both beat and lost to in 2009, next round.


If the Olympian makes it to the quarter-finals, he will likely to challenge Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand, who he defeated 2-1 at the Thailand Open last year.


HCM City-based Nguyen Hoang Nam and Nguyen Hoang Hai will play in the men’s singles event. Nguyen Nhung is the only representative in the women’s singles event, after her teammates Nguyen Thi Binh Tho and Phung Nguyen Phuong Nhi lost in the qualifying rounds.


Similarly in the women’s tournament, four of the world’s top 10 players will play at the event.
