World champion Wang Yihan became the latest Chinese seed to crash out of the All-England Open here on Wednesday.

She lost 21-12, 21-19 to Lindaweni Fanetri, the world number 18 from Indonesia, who had won only one match out of three in Super Series tournaments this year.

Wang's defeat means the two top women's singles title contenders from the sport's leading nation have both gone out in the first round.
