Peng Soon-Liu Ying aim for good showing at German Open


MIXED doubles Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying are ready to get back to their best as they set their sights on the German Open, which started yesterday with the qualifying round in Muelheim.

Peng Soon-Liu Ying, who won silver at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games, will take on qualifiers Praveen Jordan-Melati Daeva Oktavianti of Indonesia in the first round today.

The Malaysian pair have been in superb form since reuniting early this year. Their best result was winning the Thailand Masters in January.

The World No 21 hope to peak at the Gold Coast Commonweal­th Games next month.

“At the moment, we are in good shape and we want to do well here first (German Open),” said Peng Soon.

“Our combinatio­n on court has also improved, so we want to push and see how far we can go.”
