Angus Ng Ka Long of Hong Kong and Lee Zii Jia of Malaysia became the first seeds to fall at the Indonesia Open.

Japan’s Kanta Tsuneyama defeated eighth seed Ng 22-20, 13-21, 21-19 in a thrilling first-round clash in Bali, which is hosting the Badminton World Federation World Tour Super 1000 event.

Denmark’s Rasmus Gemke also produced a superb performance as he came from a game down to upset seventh seed Lee 13-21, 25-23, 21-16.

The pair met in the first round for the second straight week after Lee was forced to pull out of last week’s Indonesia Masters opener after just 13 minutes due to injury.

"The first game was very difficult for me," said Gemke.

"I was struggling to play the conditions well, it was really slow in there.

"Lee made it difficult for me throughout.

"I played the four corners really well, his attack and his angles from the backline were difficult to see.

"I was always so far behind in the rallies.

"In the second game, I kept going, returning all the shuttles, trying to see if could get him to feel a little shaky.

"I found more confidence in doing that.

"I kept telling myself to keep pushing, keep the shuttles in the court. Lee seemed frustrated and he couldn’t play his game so I kept pushing him."
