    Lee Chong Wei is eyeing his seventh Malaysia Open crown.

    [/TABLE]
    THE Maybank Malaysia Open badminton championships will see the world's top 10 players in almost all the events in the Super Series tournament at Putra Stadium on Jan 10-15.
    China duo Lin Dan and Chen Long, who have tormented Lee Chong Wei in recent months, will be coming and the keen rivalry between the three will be a treat for the local fans.
    However, it still remains to be seen if Lin Dan will see action after withdrawing at the eleventh hour in three consecutive occasions since 2008.
    Lin Dan did turn up last year but only to concede a walkover in the last eight to Chen Long due to a mysterious stomach ailment.
    And the latter went on to lose to Chong Wei in the semi-finals.
    Lin Dan may skip the Malaysia Open again, the only international honour he has failed to win, as he has been avoiding playing Chong Wei in his fortress except for the 2010 Thomas Cup, which the China ace won.
    Chen Long and Chen Jin should be around due to the Olympic qualifying points while regulars Peter Gade Christensen of Denmark and Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia are the other crowd pullers.
    Chong Wei, despite his struggles against the China shuttlers, will be the favourite to win his seventh Malaysia Open crown.
    The Korea Open Super Series on Jan 3-8 will be the first event where Chong Wei and others will be competing before making the trip to Kuala Lumpur.
    The men's doubles will also attract leading pairs and this will make it difficult for the struggling Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong to taste success.
    South Korea's Jung Jae Sung-Lee Yong Dae and Cai Yun-Fu Haifeng of China are the frontrunners while Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen of Denmark, who won the World Super Series Finals on Sunday, are also expected to put up a strong challenge.

    For Nst info, Boe/Morgensen had withdraw from the tournament last few days.

    Maybank is certainly making the Malaysia Badminton Open an exciting one next year. I'm glad with they way they promote the tournament. At least they are better than Proton;):rolleyes:..
    Apparently, there's also a maybank badminton week starting from yesterday.. A small badminton tournament for the staffs. Those who were present include Rexy, Liew darren, and some junior player.. Psst, heard koo/tan will be coming in 1 of the days too..:)

    Maybank did put a lot of effort in promoting Malaysia Open. Since it is their inaugural tournament as the
    Major sponsor for Malaysia Open and team Malaysia, they will make an impact. It is great that they used some of their marketing gig e.g. FlashMob and Mini tourney. This will create the buzz at the same time gain new supporters. I was told that this Malaysia Open 2012 will be slightly different and unique compare to
    the previously staged MO. We will see. Im excited and the noise of Ferraris in my neighborhood is
    irritating me now. Anyway hope to see some of you there.. hopefully i will be there.
