World number two Liek Hou was glad that Yu Fang gave him a good fight after an easy 21-3, 21-2 opening group win in just 15 minutes over Egypt’s Eldakrory Ahmed Magdy Amin yesterday (Sept 1).

“I think I finally found my rhythm, thanks to a great challenge posed by Yu Fang. I was trailing 2-5 in the second game and that was when I found my rhythm as I managed to reel him in en route to winning it. I hope to get a third win tomorrow and top Group B,” he told reporters.
