KUALA LUMPUR: The Sudirman Cup in Guangzhou from May 10-17 will see Lee Yong-dae renewing his partnership with Jung Jae-sung to strengthen South Korea’s challenge.Solid combination: South Korea’s Lee Yong-dae (right) and Jung Jae-sung are teaming up again to beef up their country’s cast at the Sudirman Cup.

And this will surely intensify the fight among the doubles players in the world mixed team event.

Since the absence of Jae-sung, who had to undergo military training back at home in February, Yong-dae had partnered Shin Baek-cheol and the duo did well to reach the All-England semi-finals and win the German Open title.

The Sudirman Cup will be Yong-dae-Jae-sung’s first tournament since losing to Denmark’s Mathias Boe-Carsten Morgensen in the final of the Korean Open in February.

The performance of the world No. 6 pair in China will also give their rivals a sneak preview of what could be expected from them at the World Championships, which will be held in Hyderabad, India from Aug 10-16.

The others in the South Korean team for the Sudirman Cup are All-England runners-up Hwang Ji-man-Han Sang-hoon, Yoo Yeon-seong, Park Sung-hwan, Jang Soo-young and their women players Lee Kyung-won-Lee Hyo-jung, Hwang Hye-youn-Kim Min-jung and Ha Jung-eun.

South Korea are in Group One with Malaysia, top seeds Denmark and Hong Kong. The other group in Division One comprises defending champions China, Indonesia, Japan and England.

The top two teams will advance to the semi-finals and it will be tough for Malaysia to overcome South Korea and Denmark, whose teams are more balanced.
