KUALA LUMPUR: It is freezing in Seoul.
But Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei has vowed to raise the temperature in the Korean Open today in a bid to get off to a roaring start in the Year of the Tiger.
Today, he will take on England’s Andrew Smith and he has promised not to let his guard down.
“I started well and ended strongly last season. This year, I aim to do the same. A good start will put me in the right frame of mind ahead of more challenging tournaments this year,” he said.
“The weather is very cold as it is minus zero here. But it will be a challenge for me to do well despite the discomfort.”
