MILNGAVIE’S Imogen Bankier and her doubles partner Chris Adcock could not follow up their victory over China’s world champions as they lost in round two of the Korea Open.

The Britons beat Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei in round one last week, but fell 21-14 21-17 to Chinese number two pairing He Hanbin and Yixin Bao 24 hours later.

Adcock and Bankier play fellow Brits Nathan Robertson and Jenny Wallwork at next week’s Malaysia Open.

Bankier posted on Twitter that she was “Disappointed after a great win yesterday.”

She added: “But we are still playing well and we will hopefully continue our good form next week in Malaysia.”
