    Default Badminton: I知 better player now, claims Chong Wei

    Badminton: I知 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痴 confidence level and commitment to win.

    "My life has changed now. Misbun痴 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痴 big threats in the China Masters and World Championships will be World No 1 1 Lin Dan, his compatriot Chen Jin and Indonesia痴 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.

    I would say MAS MD team of 4 pairs have a SLIGHTLY combined better chance than LCW. I would say LCW chance has improved since IO07 but a lot depends on the draw.

    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

    Our MD teams I think are overated and I think it will be a tall order for them to deliver the WC or Olympic Gold. I am prepared to eat humble pie if they do bring home either the WC or Olympic Gold.

    LCW, I rate his chances to land the WC title as good. 7/10

    It is one LCW against the best MS in the world...with 4 MAS MD qualifying, the odds are better with home soil, MAS fans in stadium, etc...I agree with TH possibly out, LCW chances are better...but I would not count out LD, unless he is hurt, a betting person would be silly not to bet on him with the world stage as big as WC. And I would love to see LCW win to be 1st MAS WC.

    LCW's only problem is his match preparations. In the past, even when the draw was good and his WR super,the outcome did not match.His IO07 title is a reflection of his match preparations coming together, not the draw.He did not beat BCL and CH by a whisker; they were left trailing.
    LCW has an enviable array of weapons but in the past he could not unleash them effectively cos they were in disarray. Neither the coach nor he could concoct a formidable formula. With possibly some indirect clues through BP's refreshing play (via his INA coach) in SO07,the formula could be visualised.And supercharged by his No.1 speed weapon, I believe it would be difficult for his opponents to keep up with him when all his other weapons work in synergy.They may be able to keep up with him for the first 10 mins,have trouble in the next 10 and barely in the 3rd 10....
    So all LCW needs to take care of is this trigger problem:Match preparations. When superb, confidence and calm and his A game will prevail,even under pressure, come what draw. When not, uncertainty and fear will result, no matter how good the draw.
    The nicest part is ,the choice lies with LCW. Match preparations is totally within his (and coach Misbun's ) control. No opponent decides that for him.

    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.
