Malaysia Open 2023 - What Went Wrong?

Malaysia Open 2023 - What Went Wrong?

In our worst showing at a home tournament since 2015, the national contingent had an underwhelming performance at the recently concluded Petronas Malaysia Open, with not one national shuttler making it to the semi-finals. The home-favorites of national ace Lee Zii Jia, World #3 Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik & French Open champions Pearly Tan-M. Thinaah all sent packing in the early stages of the tournament. Having being elevated for the first time as a Super 1000 tournament, the last time we saw gold was when Datuk Lee Chong Wei picked up his 12th Malaysia Open title in 2018. A massive disappointment in front of the home-crowd, is this merely a blip for Malaysian badminton or a sign of things to come in 2023? Dissecting the action is sports journalist & badminton correspondents Nicholas Anil & Fabian Mark Peter.
