LONDON, March 15 (Reuters) - Malaysian world number one Lee Chong Wei took his long awaited revenge over world and Olympic Champion Lin Dan with a 21-16 21-16 victory in the final of the Swiss Open Super Series in Basle on Sunday. It was their 15th head to head in individual events, as opposed to team competitions, but lifted Chong Wei only to 4-11 after a frustrating 18-month spell against his big rival. The Malaysian lost last week's All England final in straight games to Lin and before Sunday's victory Chong Wei had succumbed in nine of their last 10 matches in individual tournaments, including last year's Olympic final in Beijing. The women's title went to China's rising force Wang Yihan. The 21-year-old followed up her All England triumph with a 21-17 17-21 21-13 success over compatriot Jiang Yanjiao. The tournament was the fourth of 12 in the year-long Super Series which culminates in the finals in December.
