BWF profile

Nur Izzuddin bin Mohd Rumsani (born 11 November 1997) is a Malaysian badminton player.[1] He won the 2022 German Open in the men's doubles event partnered with Goh Sze Fei.

Career

In January 2017, Izzuddin and his partner Goh Sze Fei entered their first Grand Prix Gold final at the 2017 Malaysia Masters and finished up as runner-ups.[2][3]

2022

In March, Izzuddin and Goh won their first BWF World Tour title at the 2022 German Open beating Liu Yuchen and Ou Xuanyi in three games.[4] In the following week, they entered their second consecutive final at the 2022 Swiss Open but lost out to rivals Fajar Alfian and Muhammad Rian Ardianto.[5]

In April, Izzuddin and Goh fell to compatriots Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik at the semi-finals of 2022 Badminton Asia Championships, securing them a bronze medal.[6]

In December, Izzuddin captured the Malaysia International title partnered with Muhammad Haikal.[7]

2023

In January, following their underwhelming results in the past few months, Izzuddin and long-time partner Goh Sze Fei decided to split-up, citing lack of connection and loss of trust.[8]

In March, Izzuddin and new partner Muhammad Haikal reached their first BWF World Tour final at the 2023 Ruichang China Masters, but went down to the home pair of Chen Boyang and Liu Yi in rubber game.[9]

Around four months after splitting up, Izzuddin and Goh Sze Fei reunited at the end of May.[10] The pair set aside their differences and decided to rekindle their partnership in quest for the 2024 Summer Olympics spot.[11]

In July, Izzuddin and Goh competed at the 2023 U.S. Open, their first tournament after reuniting. The pair emerged as winners defeating Chinese Taipei's Lee Fang-chih and Lee Fang-jen in the final.[12]
