    Also the chinese paper know it better?!?
    The malaysia paper think unconsciously about his ethnicity? :D :D (Freudsche Fehlleistung)
    google translate:
    1) 李宗伟 = Li Zhongwei (Li Ancestor Great) in the malaysia paper
    2) 李崇伟 = Li Chong Wei (Li Honors Great) in the chinese paper

    ( 宗 = Ancestor, 崇 = Honors )

    It should be .
    In Malaysia, we don't use "han yu pin yin" for our chinese name. Not like in China.
    And normally you also won't see Malaysian people use "Zhong" word for their name. Because we use Malay spelling for name not English nor Chinese. So "Zhong" would be "Chong". My friend's chinese name has a , and in his I/C it is 'Chong".

    I think what it means is not literally malay spelling, but "english" translation from dialect, as Chinese in Malaysia usually have names that are spelt using dialect rather than han yu pin yin. Eg: Koo Kien Keat(hokkien)
