“Personally, I feel that we can perform better because we’re getting much more compatible in terms of our teamwork. I believe we can maintain this rhythm and bag our second title of the year.”

V Shem and Wee Kiong, who are currently ranked 15th on the world rankings, were given a bye in the first round and could either face Germany’s Jonathan Persson and Matej Hlinican or America’s Mathew Fogarty and Bjorn Seguin in the next round.
