Tze Yong storms to second round, excited to meet Tien Chen

KUALA LUMPUR – National men’s singles main shuttler, Ng Tze Yong (picture) is delighted at the prospect of meeting Taiwanese star, Chou Tien Chen in the second round of the 2022 Malaysia Masters, tomorrow.

This, Tze Yong said, was due to the fact that he rarely got a chance of meeting top shuttlers in the tournaments that he participated in in the past.

The world number 48 player had earlier sprung a surprise against world number 31 Brian Yang, 21-15, 21-15, in their first-ever meeting in the opening round of the Malaysia Masters, in Axiata Arena here, today.

The 22-year-old shuttler was pretty pleased that he managed to catch the Canadian player by surprise as he dominated the opponent from start to finish en route to winning the game.

“I felt good about my performance earlier as I managed to stage an upset against Brian and I hope to be more consistent tomorrow,” he told reporters after the match against Yang. – Bernama
