This also means a three-year wait finally ended for former world no.3 team Chan
as they returned to a Superseries final for the first time since the 2013 Malaysia Open. Goh
underwent knee surgery in 2014.
Ahmad and Natsir, who are the reigning Asian Champions in Wuhan, haven’t been quite able to reproduce a stellar year as in 2013 when they swept away four Superseries titles and a BWF World Championships trophy, but have remained a realistic contender in every major tournament and stay as high as no.2. This week in Shah Alam, they only lost one game (to Chan/Goh) in five matches to emerge as the winners.
