Amir cant imagine slipping up again as the top seed

first_img“I was really disappointed because I wanted to win the AJC title badly because I failed last year. I lost again this year and it was after I had a two-set lead,” said Amir.“Now I’ve to pick myself up and the best way is to win this title.”On the match against Jia Rong, Amir said: “He’s a good player but I did what I needed to do to win. There were still many mistakes, so I need to step up to go all the way.”Amir plays Sacchin Kumar Sivanesan next after the latter put on a determined display by coming back form a set down twice to beat Hong Kong’s Cheng Ka Hin 7-11, 11-4, 8-11, 12-10, 11-5 in the fourth round.Meanwhile, top seeds Siow Yee Xian, Duncan Lee and Danial Nurhaqiem secured their places in the boys’ Under-19 quarter-finals.RESULTS(Malaysians only unless stated)Boys’Third roundUnder-19: Duncan Lee bt Ka On Ho (Hkg) 11-4, 11-5, 11-6; Danial Nurhaqiem Sharul Nizam bt Chen Wun-lin (Tpe) 11-6, 11-5, 11-5; Muhd Hafiz Zhafri Abdul Harif bt Matthew Lam (Hkg) 11-7, 11-7, 11-3; Siow Yee Xian bt Wee Ming Hock 15-13, 11-8, 11-5; Adam Agan Aziz bt Kim Seok-jin (Kor) 11-13, 11-9, 11-5, 11-7; Jared Michael Nalliah bt Shota Yasunari (Jpn) 11-6, 11-9, 7-11, 8-11, 12-10; Kerwin Teh bt V.
