KUALA LUMPUR, March 20 (Bernama) -- Misbun Ramdan Misbun is seen as a strong candidate to fill the vacant singles slot for the Thomas Cup, said world number one men's badminton player Datuk Lee Chong Wei.
Chong Wei said the view was based on the position of Ramdan as the country's fourth men's singles player and was ranked 48th in the world.
"Ramdan is also one of the players who produced consistent outstanding performance since last year. We have to follow world rankings and the results achieved last year.
"Nonetheless, the selection to fill the slot is by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM). They will make the decision maybe tomorrow or next week," he told reporters after attending an incentive presentation ceremony for athletes who produced excellent results at the 2013 Maybank Malaysia Open Badminton Championship and Mynamar SEA Games last year, here today.
Chong Wei received an incentive of RM25,000 for winning the 2013 BWF Super Series Masters Finals, RM25,000 for the 2014 All-England Super Series Premier championship and an incentive for RM30,000 for winning the 2014 Malaysia Open Super Series Premier.....
