    No rest for weary Chong Wei

    by rajes paul

    Lee Chong Wei seen here giving young kids a coaching clinic in this filepic. The world No.1 shuttler would love to have a longer break after returning from his European swing but he has been entered for the back-to-back China and Hong Kong Opens beginning 12 November.
    KUALA LUMPUR: Three more tournaments within one month.

    That is world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei’s commitment for this year as he seeks to end this season on a high note at the China Open in Shanghai from Nov 12-17, Hong Kong Open in Kowloon from Nov 19-24 and the Super Series Finals from Dec 11-15 in Kuala Lumpur.

    “If given a choice, I would like to rest. I am however not in a situation to do so. I have been entered for the back-to-back China and Hong Kong Opens. As for the Finals, I am left with no choice but to play because it is held at home,” said Chong Wei.

    It would be complete folly to expect Chong Wei to peak in all three tournaments but the Malaysian has vowed to give his best.

    “I have just returned from Europe and have not even recovered from my jet lag. I started light training yesterday (Wednesday). My main focus right now is to do well in the back-to-back China and Hong Kong Opens,” he said.

    He is looking for quick redemption against China’s Chen Long in the China Open, which is a Super Series Premier. It is compulsory for the top 10 players in the world to play in China.

    In the draw released by the Badminton World Federation (BWF) on Tuesday, top seed Chong Wei has been grouped in the same half as Du Pengyu, Wang Zhengming and Chen Yueken of China; Denmark’s Viktor Axelsen and Hans-Kristian Vittinghus; and Thailand’s Boonsak Ponsana.

    Chen Long will have a more challenging task as he is drawn with reigning French Open champion Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark, Kenichi Tago of Japan, World Championships bronze medallist Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam; and two Malaysians Liew Daren and Chong Wei Feng.

    Daren will take on Jorgensen in the first round while Wei Feng starts off facing Thailand’s rising star Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk.

    “The draw is similar to the one in Denmark and I will have a host of players from China as company. In Denmark, I lost to Chen Long (in the final) and in the French Open, I lost in the semi-finals (to Kenichi). It will be tough but I hope to recover from my lethargy by then.”

    On Thursday, Chong Wei took the opportunity to wish all his friends and fans Happy Deepavali, adding “It will be a busy day for me on Saturday as I will be visiting all my Hindu friends”.

    Well, i think LD also lost the WC'05 and WC'10 title. But you're nearly there.

    But why are you guys keep talking about LD in LCW's thread?

    I think Chong Wei would better skip the last two SS tournaments. I've just read his physical condition is questionable because of the reminiscence of last's year's ankle injury. He has played many international tournaments this year, adding to the Indo, China and India leagues. He has an advance of 20k points in the SS rankings over the n2, and a 40k advance over the n8, so I guess he'd better take some rest and get back in form in the SS finals next month and make a good run in Malaysia SS in january.

    Getting an injury in HK or China in the coming weeks would be catastrophic, preventing him from playing the SS finals held in KL and then the Malaysia Open a few weeks later, at home again. I guess those two tournaments are competition he doesn't want to miss in order to get back on the track after a mediocre european tour and to start 2014 well.

    The event was just over the weekend, if anybody is a fan, I have an extra one in English. Only one. Probably some of you guys want to collect it.

    I like the part about his childhood and growing up.

    Agreed! More like LCW is unlucky to be in the same era with LD.

    It is lucky for the true badminton fans, I can't imagine one of the two is missing. It is the golden era of badminton. Thank LCW for his passion for the game and provides us with many memorable matches. He may not win any of the majors when he retires but he will be remembered a true champion in our heart.

    Hope LCW takes up coaching and produce world and olympic champions - since
    he has experience multiple losses - he's the best to teach how to win.

    Not all players are able to coach well. Being a former player and then becoming a a coach doesn't going to make him successful in his new job. He may give several tips on how to improve a person's game but probably not the actual coaching.

    The book's been out for a while, but I don't live next door to LCW so I can't just give him a call and ask him to sign my book. I had to go to the event last weekend to queue and get it signed during the autograph session.

    Win or lose, LCW is #1 for sportsmanship.

    Yup, that is true. To coach is not only about skill and technique, but about motivation, setting goals, planning and arranging the player's wellbeing. Being a player, you single-mindedly focus on 1 thing..improving your game.

    LCW has to enter the time tunnel and become 25 years old again!
    Then for sure Chen Long will be biting the dust/carpet.
