Minh knocked out at Malaysia Open

Nguyen Tien Minh was knocked out of the Malaysia Open on Saturday after losing 20-22, 11-21 to host Lee Chong Wei.

Despite a valiant effort, Minh was outclassed by the world No 1, who defeated him in the second round of the open last year.

It was the sixth time the two have met. The world No 10, however, has won just once, at the Singapore Open last June.

Despite losing, the Vietnamese No 1 pocketed 6,400 points, which will lift his world ranking.
