MALAYSIA’S top men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei aims to set the record straight against China’s Chen Long in the final of the Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold Championships at the Bandaraya Stadium today.
Yesterday, world No. 1 Chong Wei was the only Malaysian singles player left standing following the exits of seasoned campaigners Wong Choong Hann and Wong Mew Choo in the semi-finals.
Chong Wei had one of his easiest semi-finals ever, galloping to a 21-9, 21-8 demolition of Hong Kong’s Hu Yun in just 19 minutes.
“I was expecting a tough match from Hu Yun after seeing him play in the Sudirman Cup. But I was really surprised with the easy win against him today,” said Chong Wei.
Indonesian Open champion Chong Wei said he was prepared to face the strongest challenge in the tournament when he comes up against Chen Long.
And all that the Malaysian wants is sweet revenge.
