Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying fall in first round of German Open

Mixed doubles pair Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying's plan of a good showing in Europe was blown out of the window in the first round of the German Open.

Rio Olympics silver medallists Peng Soon-Liu Ying were far from their best as they lost 19-21, 18-21 to Indonesians Praveen Jordan-Melati Daeva Oktavianti in Mulheim on Wednesday.

It is the second time Peng Soon-Liu Ying have lost in the first round to the Indonesian pair. They also lost in the opening round of the Indian Open last month.

Earlier, world No. 9 pair Tan Kian Meng-Lai Pei Jing were also a big letdown as they were whipped 17-21, 13-21 by Denmark's Niclas Nohr-Sara Thygesen on Tuesday.

World No. 10 Goh Soon Huat-Shevon Lai Jemie however fared better as they edged Irish pair Sam Magee-Chloe Magee.
