    Badminton: I’m better player now, claims Chong Wei

    By : Christopher Raj

    NST Online

    Chong Wei claims his life has changed dramatically under Misbun Sidek.

    HAPPINESS and inner strength are two important elements for Lee Chong Wei when he gets on court.
    And the National No 1 has found both since being coached by Misbun Sidek and he claims his life has changed dramatically since April when he left Wong Tat Ming to join Misbun.

    The happiness and inner strength that he has gained over the last few months has also boosted Chong Wei’s confidence level and commitment to win.

    "My life has changed now. Misbun’s guidance has made me a better player," said Chong Wei a training session at Bukit Kiara yesterday.

    "I am at peace with myself now."

    Chong Wei has decided to skip the Thailand Open which starts on Wednesday to prepare for the China Masters (July 10-15) and the World Championships (Aug 13-19).

    "I might play in the Philippines Open, but it all depends on the coach. It will be like a warm-up tournament before the World Championships," added the World No 4.

    "I have been going through different phases of training now which varies from the morning session to the one in the evening. These sessions give me more confidence when I play an attacking game which is something I have regained after some time."

    As always, Chong Wei’s big threats in the China Masters and World Championships will be World No 1 1 Lin Dan, his compatriot Chen Jin and Indonesia’s Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat.

    Since training under Misbun, Chong Wei has shown marked improvement in his all-round game which won him the Indonesia Open title last month, and secured an impressive win over Lin Dan in the recent Sudirman Cup in Glasgow.

    "I have regained my composure, I have gone through my own humbling process and I believe all this has contributed to the changes that has taken place within me," said Chong Wei.

    Chong Wei, who always does well at home, and with his new-found motivation, might just beat the odds in the World Championships.

    If lcw maintains his current form, yes, he would go far plus he has much less pressure to win than any chinese players. Just imagine the pressure comes 2008 beijing OG on the chinese players. I sure dont want to be in LD's shoes:D

    Both our Mens Singles and doubles have the chance to be in the podium. What color of the Medal will be hard to say.

    i agree with you tjl. every top player has a chance to win. it will depend on who is more prepared, more motivated, no injuries, and frankly a bit lucky. but i still hope LCW wins it. :D

    I would be happy and satisfied if he show some good quality and beat CJ, either Taufik or Peter Gade or LD and make it to the final. A silver is good enough if it can be a 3 set tough match to his final opponent.

    There is only 1 champion and there are too many good players. We should learn to give more credits to the finalist.

    i think LCW has great chances of winning the WC coz its held in mas.. since he is ony good at winning on home soil.. haha.. i don see any chances of mas winning the MD title.. too much pressure on them n wit kkk/tbh current form, i don think they can make much surprise in WC.. it will be a 1 sided tournament for cai n fu if kkk/tbh don buck up n make amends for their defeat to them... the ony hurdle for LCW is to topple lin dan.. so good luck to LCW.. hope kkk/tbh wont make us disspointed yet another time... haha.. i would prefer fairuzizuan/zakri to enter final rather the kkk/tbh.. got luck fairuz/zakri too.. haha..
