Sean Vendy1200

Sean Vendy and Ben Lane were victims of a stunning first-game comeback as they exited the Indonesia Open at the round of 32 stage.

Trailing 19-14, the Indonesian pair of Pramudya Kusumawardana and Yeremia Rambitan produced seven unanswered points to sneak the first set 21-19, denying Vendy and Lane a vital lead.

The second game saw the home pair taking it 21-15 to advance to the round of 16.

Mixed doubles pair Lauren Smith and Marcus Ellis also fell at the first hurdle in Jakarta.

They were beaten 21-15, 21-16 in a tense encounter with Malaysia’s Peng Soon Chan and Yee See Cheah.

All four will now channel their energy into prep for a home Commonwealth Games that gets underway in Birmingham at the end of July.
