Soong Joo Ven made it to the main draw of the Indonesia Masters after navigating his way through two qualifying matches to become the third Malaysian men’s singles after Lee Zii Jia and Liew Daren.

Soong played both matches on Tuesday. His first match against Kartikey Gulshan was the tougher of the two, as he needed close to an hour before winning 21-16, 9-21, 21-14.

The world number 59 had far less problems in his second qualifier after coming through against Ade Resky 21-15, 21-11.

New pairing Choong Hon Jian-Peck Yen Wei also checked into the mixed doubles main draw, along with men's doubles Tan Kian Meng-Tan Wee Kiong.

Several first round matches involving the national shuttlers also took place at the Istora Senayan Stadium in Jakarta.

Women’s doubles Vivian Hoo-Lim Chiew Sien were the first pair to win to set up a clash against seventh seeds Apriyani Rahayu-Siti Ramadhanti.

Eighth seeds Goh Sze Fei-Nur Izzuddin also won comfortably in straight games and take on Indonesia’s Sabar Karyaman-Moh Reza in the second round.

Pearly Tan-M.Thinaah, who were the last Malaysian pair in action on Tuesday, had no problems disposing of Margot Lambert-Anne Tran 21-13, 21-18 to set-up a meeting with South Koreans Baek Ha-na-Lee Yu-lim.

Meanwhile, Nur Azriyn Ayub-Lim Kim Wah, Anna Ching-Teoh Mei Xing, Goh V Shem-Low Juan Shen and Junaidi Arif-Muhammad Haikal all crashed out early.
