    Chong Wei to pick and choose on overseas invites

    KUALA LUMPUR: Several countries are dangling lucrative cash incentives to lure world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei to play in their local leagues but coach Tey Seu Bock does not want his player to bite more than he can chew.

    For Seu Bock, the priority for the 30-year-old Chong Wei is the World Championships in Guangzhou in August.

    Chong Wei will, however, play for Musica, a club spearheaded by former world champion Hariyanto Arbi in the Indonesian League which starts in Jakarta on Feb 2.

    Chong Wei will play for Musica but only for two matches. This will not disrupt his training. In fact, he will probably enjoy some high quality matches, said Seu Bock.

    Chong Weis participation in the China League will only take place after the World Championships.

    There is also the lucrative US$1mil Indian Badminton League (IBL) in June. Chong Wei, however, has not made any decision on his participation.

    We have decided that the priority is the world meet and Chong Wei will only begin his participation in the China League after the completion of the championships.

    So far, he has not been entered for the IBL. Some of the leagues clash with Chong Weis tournament schedule and we do not want him to be overloaded with too many responsibilities, said Seu Bock.

    Chong Weis participation in the home and away Axiata Cup team championship has also not been confirmed. The first leg is in Kuala Lumpur from March 21-24.

    Chong Wei has had a brilliant start to the year, picking up US$105,000 (RM315,000) for winning back-to-back Korean and Malaysian Opens. His next big tournament is the All-England in Birmingham from March 5-10. He is eyeing his third straight triumph in the worlds oldest badminton tournament.

    Very good statement. . Atleast now, they have planned to give him some liberty to choose his own decision. Afterall , he is a human being as well. Let him follow his mind .. That will definitely be a wise one of any kind of decision he has made so far. Go Datuk !!!.. We love your game always..

    Also, WMC is pregnant & should be giving birth sometime around WC, so if LCW wants to accompany his wife & newborn baby, he will only go for tournaments which are compulsory

    Whats all the fuss about Lin Dan?

    http://www.bam.org.my/index.php?opti...ews&Itemid=181

    EXCERPTS:

    World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei is in no mood to find out the reasons behind Lin Dans continued absence from the international scene.

    Hed rather let sleeping dogs lie.


    The China ace has not taken part in any tournament since defeating Chong Wei in the mens singles final of the London Olympic Games in August.


    I have no comment on this matter. He must have his own reasons for skipping the tournaments. Id rather stay focused on my own game, Chong Wei said after a training session at Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara yesterday.


    Two-time Olympic champion Lin Dans name was removed from the list just before the closing date for the All-England ended on Thursday sparking a series of rumours, including being ill-prepared and souring his relationship with the China BA.


    The All-England, the oldest badminton tournament, will be held from March 5-10 in Birmingham.


    It will still boast a strong field, including Lin Dans younger team-mates Chen Long, Du Pengyu, Chen Jin, Wang Zhengming, Gao Huan and Chen Yuekun.


    Asked if it would be easier for him to win his third All-England title without Lin Dan in the fray, Chong Wei said that he would never take any tournament, or opponent, lightly.


    Therell be other regulars players I am familiar with. Its important to be ready against anyone at any time, said Chong Wei, who won the All-England titles in 2010 and 2011.


    In the 100th edition of the All-England in 2010, he defeated a stubborn Kenichi Tago of Japan in the final. In 2011, he showed his class with a straight-game win over Lin Dan in the final to prove that he can beat his nemesis in a major tournament.

    The 30-year-old Chong Wei agreed that expectations would be higher on him to win the All-England title, especially after bagging the seasons first two tournaments Korean Open and Malaysian Open.


    I didnt feel my age during those two tournaments. I felt like a 26-year-old. Im looking forward to another good year, he quipped.


    Chong Wei, however, promised not to rest on his laurels.


    I am flying off to Jakarta tomorrow (today). Ill play two matches on Sunday and Monday. Ill be back home on Tuesday. I dont want to overstrain myself, said Chong Wei, who will play for the Musica Champion club owned by former world champion Hariyanto Arbi.


    Ive been given five days break for Chinese New Year. But Ill get down to doing some light training after just two days. I can already picture all the good food. I dont want to gain weight.


    This year, Ill celebrate Chinese New Year with my wife (Wong Mew Choo) here in Kuala Lumpur.


    Yes, it will be different as Ill be celebrating it as a husband and a father-to-be.


    And, Ill also have to give out ang pows for the first time, added Chong Wei with a hearty laugh.

    Chong Wei and Mew Choo are expecting their first child in May.

    Great guy to watch as a complete person.. Good character..

    Lee: Indonesian stint good preparation for team events

    http://www.bam.org.my/index.php?opti...ews&Itemid=181

    EXCERPTS:

    There is a saying that “no man is an island”.


    And world No. 1 men’s singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei is hoping that the participation of his younger compatriots in the Indonesia Super League, starting tomorrow, will teach them to be good team players.


    Chong Wei and 20 other national players – 10 men and 10 women – left for Jakarta today to compete in the league.


    The 30-year-old Chong Wei is hoping that the outing would strengthen Malaysia’s team morale, spirit and unity ahead of the Sudirman Cup, which will be held at the Putra Stadium from May 19-26, and next year’s Thomas Cup, which Malaysia last won in 1992.


    Chong Wei is the star attraction of the Musica Champion’s club while the others will play under the Malaysia Tigers Badminton Club baner in the six-day competition.


    The 10 players in the men’s team are Liew Daren, Chong Wei Feng, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif, Goh Soon Huat, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem, Mohd Lutfi Zaim Abdul Khalid-Teo Kok Siang.


    The women’s team consist of Tee Jing Yi, Lydia Cheah, Sonia Cheah, Yang Li Lian, Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Choo, Marylen Ng Poau Leng-Shevon Lai Jemie, Vivian Hoo-Erica Khoo Pei Shan.


    The format is similar to the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup where a tie is decided over five matches – three singles and two doubles.


    “It’s great that I’m not the only one to play in this league. They have allowed Malaysia to send two teams – men’s and women’s.


    “All 20 of them are our next echelon of players and this is a great platform for them to have a feel of a team event,” said Chong Wei.


    “The Indonesia Super League is of high quality. I’ve played there before.


    “This time they’ve invited many other top foreign players, including Kenichi Tago (Japan), Lee Hyun-il (South Korea) and Nguyen Tien Minh (Vietnam).


    “Our youngsters should use this platform as preparation for the Sudirman Cup and Thomas Cup.

    \
    “This is one of the best places to learn.”


    The other top names include Boonsak Ponsana of Thailand, Wong Wing Ki of Hong Kong. Two clubs – Tonami and Unisys – are represented by Japan’s men’s shuttlers.


    In the women’s competition, Djarum probably will be the strongest as they have Germany’s Juliane Schenk and reigning Malaysian Open champion Tai Tzu-ying in their ranks.


    Two clubs – Renesas and Unisys – are represented by Japanese shuttlers while Korean Ginseng will be powered by Bae Sung-jee.


    “The league in Indonesia is popular and draws top names because it offers good money. I will be playing for Musica in only two matches this season. They offer US$30,000 per win,” said Chong Wei, who’ll be facing Daren in his first match.


    Chong Wei, who will also play in this year’s China League in September, has decided not to compete in the inaugural Indian Badminton League (IBL) in June and may skip the Axiata Cup so as to focus on the World Championships in Guangzhou in August.


    For the record, the team will be accompanied by singles and doubles coaches Hendrawan and Paulus Firman.


    The grouping



    MEN

    Group A
    : Jaya Raya, Musica Champion, SGS PLN, Tonami Badminton, Malaysia Tigers Badminton. Group B: Jaya Raya Suryanaga, Mutiara Bandung, Djarum. Tangkas Specs, Unisys Badminton.


    WOMEN



    Group A
    : Jaya Raya, Mutiara Bandung, Unisys Badminton, Malaysia Tigers Badminton. Group B: Jaya Raya Suryanaga, Djarum, Korean Ginseng Corporation, Renesas Badminton.

    I must say... those selected points really showed Daren playing really well... but I can't really comment on LCW's performances, those deuce points certainly showed LCW's normal playing style where he wanted to win but I really cannot be sure what caused LCW to be in such a position. Maybe he made too many errors or something and thus wasn't 'interesting' enough to be included in the video?

    I did remember in some article where LCW said he'll 'show the Msian team what is team-play'. Something like that. But that doesn't mean I discredit Darren's skills.

    Aiyah, to me 7 SS wins per annum is equivalent to 1 world champion, and 8 SS wins equals 1 Olympic gold. 10 SS wins per annum is having both titles. Hehe.. But of course, if can get all 3 achievements is much better la..

    Just check out some of the previous discussion in this thread. Some feel it is their god given right to condemn since LCW is representing MY.

    If LCW wins ... it ok, it is expected out of him
    If LCW loses ... **** he brought down MY, useless, always lose to LD etc etc etc

    We need more sports fan like this in MY
