Day-1 of the Malaysian Masters 2024 is underway and the Indians across categories have fared well.

The duo of Treesa Jolly and Gayatri Gopichand made light work of their round of 32 tie against Chinese Taipei pair Huang Yu-Hsun and Liang Ting Yu.

The game between Treesa-Gayatri and Yu-Hsun-Ting started off with both sides going hard at one another but the Taipei duo could not handle the heat brought by the Indians and succumbed to a straight set defeat losing 21-14, 21-10.

Elsewhere, Simran Singhi and Ritika Thaker also advanced to the round of 16 winning their Thailand counterparts Phattharin Aiamvareesrisakul and Napapakorn Tungkasatan 21-14, 21-13.

The shock of the day was the exit of Rutuparna Panda and Swetaparna Panda over Chinese Taipei duo C.Yu and S.Y.Sung 21-10, 21-7.
