Home hope in Men’s Singles, Jan O Jorgensen, succumbed to a knee injury in his third-round match against Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien Chen 21-9 9-4 retd.

England couple Chris and Gabrielle Adcock would have anticipated a better result than a third-round loss in Mixed Doubles to China’s Liu Cheng/Bao Yixin, 21-16 26-24.

Malaysian Men’s Doubles veterans Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong went down fighting in probably their last match together as a pair. The Malaysians lost to Chinese Taipei’s Lee Sheng Mu/Tsai Chia Hsin 14-21 21-10 21-19.
