FORMER Malaysian coach Li Mao of China is now the mastermind behind the rise of the Korean women’s singles players.

Yesterday, one of his charges Bae Youn-joo made a remarkable comeback after a six-month break from injury to stun top seed Wang Yihan of China 17-21, 21-13, 21-19 in 63 minutes to reach the Malaysian Open final.

It is the second time that South Korea will have a finalist in a Super Series. Just a week ago, youngster Sung Ji-hyun stole the show when she made the final of the Korean Open.

MALAYSIA’S top women’s doubles pair Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty ended up as losers for the fourth time to China’s Ma Jin-Wang Xiaoli after losing in the semi-final of the Malaysian Open yesterday.

This time the Malaysians took the Chinese to the distance before bowing out 22-20, 12-21, 17-21 in 62 minutes.

Eei Hui-Pei Tty got the spectators all excited after their fantastic win in the opening game but the stadium fell into silence after a tame 12-21 defeat in the second.

The Chinese took the lead in the decider but the Malaysians did not give up but all their hard work ended in vain as they went down fighting 17-21.

With their defeat, Malaysia’s chase for a women’s doubles title in the home tournament remains elusive after four decades.

There were mixed feelings for Pei Tty yesterday.

MALAYSIA’s top men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei is on the verge of a big breakthrough in his career after reaching the final of the Malaysian Open at Putra Stadium yesterday with another top-class performance.

Chong Wei, the world No.1, set up an intriguing clash with Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand and has a bright chance to nick his sixth Malaysian Open title.

If he pulls it off, it will also be his first back-to-back Open title.

Just a week ago, the Malaysian was in ferocious form to lift the Korean Open title for the first time.

KUALA LUMPUR, Jane 22  -- World No. 1 men's singles shutter Lee Chong Wei will face Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam in the semi-final of the Malaysia Open Super Series at the Putra Stadium of the National Sports Complex in Bukit Jalil Saturday.

In the quarter-final on Friday, the 26-year-old Chong Wei, who is the top seed and Beijing Olympic silver medallist, was forced to work extra hard before defeating fifth-seeded and the world's third-ranked Chen Jin of China 21-14, 16- 21, 21-15 in a 70-minute epic battle.

"The rubber set decider might be due to tiredness taking a toll on myself, particularly after having clinched the Korean Open title last week. Somehow or rather, I managed to clinch the point via attacking play in the first set, then more to defence in the second and third. I know I am tired but I just held my line till the end," he said.

NATHAN Robertson's hopes of a first Super Series final of the season came grinding to a halt on Friday as he crashed out of the men's and mixed doubles quarter finals at the Proton Malaysia Open.

QUARTER FINAL HEARTACHE: Nathan Robertson crashes out of the mixed and men's doubles at the quarter final stage in Malaysia

The former Olympic silver medallist and Anthony Clark battled bravely against Malaysian top seeds Koo Kean Keat and Tan Boon Heong before being edged out 21-12, 23-25, 21-11.

The Malaysians dominated the opener and never looked like losing the first game after racing to an early 4-0 lead.

But the English pair, who reached the semi-finals in Kuala Lumpur 12 months ago before going on to lift the title in Singapore, fought their way back into the match and came out on top of a rollercoaster second game in which they had to fend off a match point at 23-22.
