World class field for Malaysia Open
Tuesday, 20 Dec 2011
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.Lee Chong Wei is eyeing his seventh Malaysia Open crown.
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.
