Focus on Tokyo
In the mixed zone after the loss Chan and Goh admitted that they had the chance to win their first ever World Championships medal.

- We are a bit disappointed. This was a good chance to win a medal, Peng Soon Chan said.

In the semifinals the Japanese will play either the overall favourite, Zheng Si Wei/Huang Ya Qiong from China.
