KUALA LUMPUR: The way Lee Chong Wei bounced back from his Denmark disappointment to clinch the French Open title is a good lesson for all aspiring youngsters – as well as those from the elite men’s doubles department.

On Sunday, Chong Wei downed Japan’s Kenichi Tago 21-16, 21-11 in Paris to win his seventh title of the year in his 11th final appearance.

Earlier in the semi-finals, Chong Wei exacted sweet revenge on China’s Chen Long, who had defeated the Malaysian twice in the finals of the Japan and Denmark Opens.

It was world No. 1 Chong Wei’s 39th career individual title since making his breakthrough in the senior scene in 2002 and his 20th Super Series title since its introduction in the Badminton World Federation (BWF) calendar in 2007.

His transformation – especially in the match against Chen Long – in just a week clearly showed that Chong Wei is made of sterner stuff.

Chong Wei deserves a pat on the back for putting some thought into his game and to change his style of play to outplay Chen Long and re-assert his status as the world’s leading shuttler.

PETALING JAYA: A quick tactical change saw World No. 1 singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei regain his supremacy over China’s Chen Long on a day when walkovers and injuries in China camp marred the French Open in Paris yesterday.

Yesterday, Chong Wei was on fire, mixing up his speed and well calculated moves to take down the six-footer Chinese with a 23-21, 17-21, 21-15 win in an energy sapping 77-minute semi-finals to set-up a meeting with Kenichi Tago of Japan.

It was a contrasting style of play by Chong Wei yesterday compared to his less aggressive approach against Chen Long at the Denmark Open just a week ago. The Malaysian had also lost narrowly to the Chinese at the preceding Japan Open final too.

The sweet revenge after the two painful defeats within a month also enabled Chong Wei to keep his perfect record of reaching every final in every tournament he had competed so far – which is a total of 11 to be exact.
