Vietnamese ace Nguyen Tien Minh will clash with China's world No.3 Chen Long in the second round of the All England Badminton Championships after beating 23rd-ranked Hu Yun of Hong Kong in the first round Wednesday.

Minh, the world No.9, beat Hu 21-12 21-18.

Chen does not look too formidable an opponent for Minh despite his ranking because he does not seem to be in good form.

In the first round Chen Long beat 19th-ranked Tommy Sugiarto after the Indonesian player retired due to injury in the third set with the match at 1-1.

Minh had beaten Chen at the Thomas & Uber Cup Preliminary Asia Zone in Macau last month.

If he does manage to beat him again on Friday, he will double the 2660 points he earned from winning the first round.
