KUALA LUMPUR: National number one Lee Chong Wei gave a show of class to emerge as the first Malaysian to win the Singapore Open men's singles title at the republic's indoor stadium yesterday.

The world number two and top seed Chong Wei took only 29 minutes to crush Simon Santoso of Indonesia 21-13, 21-5 in one of the most lopsided men's singles finals in a Super Series event.

And Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari made it a more memorable outing for Malaysia by winning their first career men's doubles title – beating compatriots Gan Teik Chai-Woon Lin Fui 21-18, 21-17 in the final.

KUALA LUMPUR: Shuttler Lee Wan Wah passed a medical test yesterday and he will get himself ready to participate in the men's doubles event of the Beijing Olympics in August.

However, Choong Tan Fook had mixed reactions over news that his partner had been given a clean bill of health from a shoulder injury picked up at the Thomas Cup Finals in Jakarta two weeks ago.

He is disappointed that for all the hard work that they had put in over the last one-year to qualify for their third Olympics, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) are contemplating dropping them.

Doubts over the fitness of Wan Wah had prompted the BAM coaching and training committee to postpone the naming of the men's pairs for the Olympics.

If I asked you to name me three of the six British badminton players going to the Beijing Olympics, I reckon you would get stuck at two.

KUALA LUMPUR: It would have been a foregone conclusion two months ago but the shoulder injury sustained by Lee Wan Wah during the Thomas Cup Finals in Jakarta last week could now pave the way for Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Latif to earn an unexpected debut appearance in the Beijing Olympics.

While the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) would have no qualms choosing the two doubles pairs for the Olympics based on world ranking positions and experience, the injury to Wan Wah has put them in a spot.
