Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying won the first set in the final of the All England Open in a hard fought 21-19 win as Malaysia seeks its first mixed doubles pair win in England. The Olympic silver medallists took the lead by 4 points when the score was 17-13. Malaysians watching from the screens or the stands were able to take breathers as there is finally real and genuine hope. In demoralizing fashion, Malaysia lost the second set 19-21. Malaysian supporters will be thinking “we still have the third set, all hope is not gone yet”. Malaysia lost the third set 16-21. There was no history made on that day.
