SEPANG, Aug 20 (Bernama) -- Despite not having fully recovered from a groin injury, World number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei has set his sights on winning the 2014 BWF World championships held in Copenhagen, Denmark from Aug 25 to 31.
The world number one said he would be accompanied by a number of medical specialists to ensure that the injury he had picked up at the Indonesian Open Super Series earlier this year, would not affect his performance at the world championships.
"Despite not having fully recovered, I need to participate as it is important for me...my target to clinch the title has not changed," he said when met by reporters at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport here before leaving for Copenhagen with the national badminton squad, Tuesday night.
Chong Wei admitted that even his arch-rival Lin Dan of China has failed to qualify for the world championships following his low ranking, he is not taking any chances at the tournament.
"This is my best opportunity...I will try my best...I have no problem with fitness but I maybe a little rusty after a two-month absence from competitive matches," he said.....
