Jan O Jorgensen, revitalized by his holiday, has vowed to win the world champion on home turf this week. The third seed will have no shortage of support as he tries to become the first European winner after compatriot Peter Rasmussen triumphed in 1997 IBF World Championships by defeating Sun Jun of China 16-17, 18-13, 15-10.

“I am reenergized after my vacation, I've been training hard for the last 2 months, and I am now eyeing for a medal in the World Championships," said Jorgensen.

Jorgensen who beat Chen Long on his way to the Indonesian Open title, has seen his quarter of the draw quite “open up” after Boonsak Ponsana's last minute withdrawal, and with Indonesia's Simon Santoso, the eighth seed, pulling out after contracting dengue fever.

The Dane, joined in the draw by seeded compatriots Hans-Kristian Vittinghus and Viktor Axelsen, is on course for a semi-final showdown with Lee Chong Wei who has defeated Jorgensen in 12 of 13 previous meetings.

"I am lookingf forward to play Chong Wei in the semi-final, but I think the pressure is on Chong Wei since he has yet to win the world title," added Jorgensen.
