Chen Tang Jie-Toh Ee Wei fell short in their bid to become the first Malaysians to win a title on the World Tour this year after they lost at the Thailand Masters mixed doubles final against the top seeds.

The Malaysians were upstaged 12-21, 18-21 by Thai pair Dechapol Puavaranukroh-Sapsiree Taerattanachai in a 48-minute contest.

Chen-Toh came into this final as the underdogs but were aiming to stun the home favourites on the back of their strong performances this week.

But Dechapol-Sapsiree started strongly to lead and eventually clinch a dominant opening game.




The Malaysians put on a spirited showing in the second game which could have gone either way, but the Thais magnificent defence proved the defining factor.

Their defence was highlighted by Sapsiree who saved two shots while on the floor before playing a clever cross court drive to get match point which left Toh looking shell shocked.

Chen-Toh's defeat also meant they failed to become the latest Malaysians to win this mixed doubles title.
The last pair to do so were Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying in 2018 & 2019.



Other results saw Chinese pair He Ji Ting-Ren Xiang Yu claim the men's doubles title, while Japan's Aya Ohori earned a hard fought women's singles title.

Chinese Taipei's Chou Tien-chen triumphed in the men's singles after he beat Loh Kean Yew, while Thailand secured a second title on home soil through women's doubles pair Benyapa-Nuntakarn Aimsaard.
