Badminton: Chong Wei out to prove critics wrong
By : K.M. Boopathy
Chong Wei says he put too much pressure on himself to win titles.
LEE Chong Wei's recent failures on the international scene have some critics suggesting that success has gone to his head and he is not pulling his weight anymore.
The World No 1, while admitting the preparations have not been ideal after the Beijing Olympics in August, said the actual reason is that he is putting too much pressure on himself to win.
Since winning the Olympics silver, Chong Wei lost in the finals of the Japan and Macau Opens and in the semi-final of the French Open two weeks ago.
Chong Wei will be competing in the China Open in Shanghai on Nov 18-23 and has opted for a relaxed approach.
"Success has not gone into my head and the hunger to win is still there. However, the pressure has been somewhat increased since becoming World No 1," said Chong Wei.
"I probably have been trying to hard to win and I will not doing this anymore. All focus was on the Olympics before this and it had taken a lot from me and the momentum will surely drop.
"My objective now is to aim for the World Championships in India and the All England next year and I will take whatever results that come my way.
"I am learning to cope with the pressure that comes with being the World No 1."
National singles coach Misbun Sidek said while he is concerned, there is no need to push the panic button as Chong Wei has been very hardworking in training as usual.
"What Chong Wei needs to do is he must accept what he is going through and not lose heart with his defeats. Becoming World No 1 and sustaining it takes a lot of effort and he must learn to cope," said Misbun.
"I will be worried if he doesn't put enough effort in training but that's not the case. The only problem is that when he starts giving in if the losses continue."
Chong Wei has a minor task at hand when he competes at the Johor Open in Johor Baru beginning Tuesday where he must reach at least the final in order to qualify for the National Grand Prix Finals in Kedah on Dec 9-12.
Chong Wei is chasing a record seventh consecutive National GP crown. He is tied with Misbun on six.

LCW to get his record seventh consecutive Malaysian National GP crown
Let's wish that LCW can qualify for the Malaysian National Grand Prix Finals first.
After that, he can start to think about getting his record seventh consecutive National GP crown. It's better for him to tackle one thing at a time.
All the best to LCW !!!

He need to act first , by skipping the local tounrys and give more chances for junior to shine.
Veteran likes RH, Lee TS already out of control as they were not from BAM and may participate in local tounrys as & when they wish....

Lee Chong Wei must participate in the Malaysian National Grand Prix Finals
This I have to disagree. LCW mustn't skip our Malaysian National Grand Prix Finals.
Giving more chances for the juniors is one thing, but artificially allowing the juniors to think that they are 'shining' is another.
Besides, all top players in the world should support their own National Competitions. We see this in all other sports, like in Tennis, Table-Tennis, Squash, Golf, Athletics, etc..., where their World No.1's never neglect their own National Championships.

totally agreed with chris, no point for LCW to skip local tournament
juniors must start to do catch-up, by playing with LCW in local
tournament, they will know where they stand...

its no use for him to skip local tourneys just for giving chance to other youngster in Mas Badminton team to do well...
this will only give them less strong challenger..
in other words also, what will happen if mas junior team were sent to international tournaments??? can they cope up with other country`s players game? will there be any good results produced?
