 So far in 2014, Lee Chong Wei has won 4 Superseries titles - Malaysia Open, All England, India Open, and Japan Open; while Lin Dan has captured China Masters GPG,China Masters GPG and Austalian Open. With Lin Dan actively collecting points to qualify himself for the Rio 2016 Olympics, world number one Lee Chong Wei is looking forward to square off with Lin.

"I am happy to see Lin Dan is back in the spotlight. I am not worried by the prospect of facing Lin Dan in any tournaments," said Chong Wei calmly.

"Right now, I am focusing on winning my third Commonwealth Games gold medal at Glasgow, and then, I will start preparing for the Incheon Asian Games," added Chong Wei.

If everything goes according to plan, Incheon Asian Games would be the first showdown for these two players in almost a year , after Lin Dan defeated Lee Chong Wei in the World Championships, August 2013.
