LOCAL tournaments may not be Lee Chong Wei’s priority anymore but he was in no mood to allow his four-year unbeaten run to come to an end as he advanced to the second round of the Kedah Open in Alor Star convincingly yesterday.

Chong Wei, the top seed, wasted little time in securing a 21-7, 21-9 win over back-up shuttler and training mate Lok Chong Chieh in 28 minutes. Chong Wei, after winning his fifth consecutive national grand prix crown in Kuala Terengganu in Janaury, stated that he planned to skip local events to focus his attention on the Beijing Olympics.

HAFIZ Hashim’s decline in form has thrown the battle to clinch the second spot for the Beijing Olympics wide open and Wong Choong Hann wants to make the most of it.

Hafiz, a mainstay in the top 10 for more than a year, is currently ranked World No 15 and could slip further if his current poor form continues, but Choong Hann, on the other hand, has seen his performance improve since recovering from an achilles tendon operation last November.
