CareerEdit

2007Edit

Mohd Fairuzizuan played at the 2007 BWF World Championships in men's doubles with Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif. They were seeded #7 and were defeated in the second round by Guo Zhendong and Xie Zhongbo, of China, 21-14, 21-13.

At the 2007 China Open Super Series they beat the tournament number two seeded, Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng, in three sets in the first round. However, in the same round of the next Super Series, the Hong Kong Super Series, Mohd Fairuzizuan and Mohd Zakry were forced to bid an early farewell by the same rivals.

2008Edit

In the Thomas Cup semi-finals between Malaysia and China at Jakarta, due to exclusion of the original first doubles, Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah, due to injury reasons, the original second doubles, Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, was lined up as the first doubles and the unseeded Mohd Fairuzizuan and Mohd Zakry were lined up as the second doubles. At that time, Malaysia scored a point through the first singles while China scored 2 points through the first doubles and second singles. Despite being greenhorns in the Thomas Cup, what more facing opponents Xie Zhongbo-Guo Zhendong, Fairuzizuan-Zakry led a fierce fight and scored the 2nd point for Malaysia, defeating the Chinese pair, balancing the points at 2-2. However, Malaysia was eventually defeated through the third singles.

In Singapore Open in June, Fairuzizuan-Zakry faced fellow country comrades, Gan Teik Chai-Lin Woon Fui, in the men's doubles finals. Defeating Gan-Lin by two straight sets, Fairuzizuan-Zakry's win of the men's doubles finals can be almost considered as the starting of the peak of their badminton career.
