Malaysia Masters 2019: Parupalli Kashyap defeats Vladimir Malkov to qualify for main draw
Indian shuttler Parupalli Kashyap secured a berth in the main draw of the Malaysia Masters 2019 after defeating Vladimir Malkov of Russia 21-12 21-17 in straight games in the men's singles qualification round at Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday.
Kashyap, who recently married London Olympics bronze medallist Saina Nehwal, will take on Rasmus Gemke from Denmark in the opening round of the BWF World Tour Super 500 event at the Axiata Arena on Wednesday.
But it was curtains for Subhankar Dey as he lost 18-21 13-21 to Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Thailand in another men's singles qualification match. Indian women shuttlers, Rituparna Das and Mughda Agrey, too bowed out in the qualification round.
While Rituparna lost 13-21 24-26 to Indonesia's Ruselli Hartawan, her compatriot Mugdha was shown the door 17-21 21-18 19-21 by Switzerland's Sabrina Jaquet.
In the women's singles opening round on Wednesday, Kashyap's wife Saina Nehwal, seeded seventh, will be up against Xuan Deng Joy of Hong Kong.
