KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 16 (Bernama) -- Malaysian badminton men's singles superstar Datuk Lee Chong Wei and the men's doubles pair of Goh V Shem/Lim Khim Wah have advanced to the quarterfinals of the Malaysian Open Super Series badminton championship.
In the second round matches at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil here Thursday, Chong Wei brushed off Wang Zheming of China in straight sets of 21-17 and 21-18 in 42 minutes.
The World Number One said he must work extra hard to overcome the Chinese players in order to win his 10th singles title in the tournament.
"I am taking one match at a time...and as usual it is the Chinese players who stand in the way. Most likely I will meet Chen Long in the final but I am not thinking too much about this," he told reporters after the match.
Chong Wei had lost to Chen Long in the final of the South Korean Open last week. It was his first major tournament this year and the Malaysian Open is his second and as such, winning it before home fans is expected from him.....
