Langridge and Ellis were off to a good start leading 12-6 but the bronze medallists from the Rio Olympics did not take advantage of the four game point they had, and the Malaysian won the first game 23-21. 


- Maybe we were a bit too relaxed. They played well, and I think I erased these four points from my memory already, Chris Langridge said after the match.
