Sze Fei-Izzuddin make it three titles for Malaysia on Super Sunday

KUALA LUMPUR: Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin Rumsani made it a perfect day for Malaysia in men's doubles when they clinched the inaugural Abu Dhabi Masters crown on Sunday.

On a day when their more fancied compatriots, Aaron Chia-Soh Wooi Yik, finally won a maiden World Tour title (Denmark Open), top seeds Sze Fei-Izzuddin also came out tops by defeating Thailand's Pharanyu Kaosamaang-Worrapol Thongsa Nga 18-21, 21-17, 21-12 in the final at the ADNEC Marina Hall to clinch the Super 100 crown.

The title is Sze Fei-Izzuddin's third, since the duo reunited in June following a temporary split earlier this year.

Sze Fei-Izzuddin captured the US Open crown on their comeback and the Kaohsiung Masters title earlier this month.

"First of all, I want to thank God. It's a blessing that we would win two men's doubles title on the same day," said Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) coaching director Rexy Mainaky.

"Let us also not forget that Aidil (Sholeh Ali Sadikin) won the Indonesia International Challenge title, too.

"Winning titles is indeed a good thing, but more importantly, it is to encourage and motivate these players to continue giving their best," added Rexy.
