"Although Domke is a lower ranked player, but he did put up a good fight. I am confident with my game and I know where I want it to be," said Chong Wei after the match.

Despite the win, the world number one said he is still working his way back to his best after battling groin injury since June.

"I have not competed in any tournaments for two months, I am still fine tuning my games. There are some shots that I'm still reluctant to play," added Chong Wei.

Lee will play unheralded 49th-ranked Scott Evans from Ireland for a place in the quarter-finals on Thursday, but Chong Wei stressed he wouldn't be caught looking too far ahead.

"Regardless of the ranking, I'm not going to underestimate Evans. I'll be taking every opponent seriously. No matter who it is," explained Chong Wei.
