Tokyo: In the second round of Japan Open badminton championships, the defending champion world number 1 Lee Chong Wei won the first set against Marc Zwiebler of Germany easily with 21-13, but was forced to work hard as the resilient German stretched Chong Wei to 28-26 in the second set before conceded defeat.

According to Lee Chong Wei's coach Tey Seu Bock, shuttle slowness caused the game to be very slow tempo, thus allowing the opponent to have more time to react to Chong Wei's attacks.

 

"Chong Wei was at his usual form when playing against Marc Zwiebler. There were a lot of long rallies in the match due to the slow shuttle, and I am expecting the same thing when Chong Wei plays against Tommy Sugiarto tomorrow."

In other men's singles match, Chong Wei Feng has no answer to Lin Dan dominance by bowing out 21-14, 21-14.

"Wei Feng did try his best, but Lin Dan was just too good for Chong Wei. Nevertheless, Chong Wei should appreciate to have the opportunity to play against and learn from Lin Dan" added Seu Bock.

In men's doubles, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong was able to book a spot in quarter-finals by knocking off Thais Maneepong Jongjit-Nipitphon Puangpuapech 21-13, 21-17. They will play world No. 1 Mohammad Ahsan-Hendra Setiawan of Indonesia in the next round. In contrary, it was a surprise to see the men's doubles pair of Goh V-Shem-Tan Boon Heong who defeated world number 3 pair from Japan yesterday was trashed by the young Chinese pair, Wang Yilv-Zhang Wen, losing 21-19, 21-7 in 30 minutes.

In other games, Zhang Nan-Zhao Yunlei of China defeated Peng Soon-Pei Jing 21-16, 21-9, and Khe Wei-Vivien were send packing by Japan’s Reika Kakiiwa-Miyuki Maeda 21-18 21-15.
