KUALA LUMPUR, June 21 (Bernama) -- World number one and defending champion Datuk Lee Chong Wei was bundled out of the Indonesian Open semifinals by Kenichi Tago of Japan.
The 31-year-old Malaysian lost 16-21, 21-15, 16-21 at the Istora Gelora Bung Karno in Jakarta, Indonesia, in a three-set thriller.
The loss was a major blow to Chong Wei who was hoping to add his sixth Indonesian Open title, especially after having won it in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.
Tago will meet Denmark's Jan O Jorgensen in the final after the Danish star disposed China's world number two Chen Long 21-19, 21-18 in straight sets.
