Men’s Singles crown of Yonex All England Open Badminton Championships belonged to Chen Long as he overpowered Lee Chong Wei in the title match on Sunday, March 10, 2013.
This final match was played at the local badminton complex of Birmingham and it remained in full swing for one hour and two minutes.
Both world class shuttlers employed their brilliance in the game and kept the audience glued to their chairs while piling up final figures of 21-17 and 21-18.
The Chinese campaigner laid foundation of his straight-set victory immediately in the first set and then served notice of his dominance by winning the second set.
On the other hand, the badminton king Chong Wei looked completely off colour as he put a fluctuated performance and squandered the opportunity of a hat-trick title.
