There's likelihood of LCW, LD and TH in one half and destroying one another to reach the final where PG awaits.I hope it happens.

Chong Wei reaps his latest reward – a brand new and sleek Perdana V6
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: It pays to be a top national badminton player. And world number one men singles shuttler Lee Chong Wei will certainly attest to this.
The 27-year-old Chong Wei’s latest reward for all his accomplishments in badminton is a brand new and sleek black-colour Proton V6 Perdana car.
The Penangite has done well to maintain his world number one status since winning a silver medal at the Beijing Olympic Games in August last year.
Full of drive: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei hopes all the rewards he has received will inspire aspiring singles players to achieve excellence in the game.
Proton is the main title sponsor for the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) and they felt that it was time to recognise Chong Wei for his successes.
And Chong Wei hopes that all the incentives and rewards he has received would inspire other aspiring younger singles players to press on and achieve excellence in badminton.
“It is rewarding to be a national badminton player. Our sponsor (Proton) has been generous to reward me with a car last week for all the good results that I have achieved,” said Chong Wei.
“Currently, we have a small pool of singles players at the elite level. Hopefully, many aspiring youngsters will be encouraged to improve their game in badminton.
“My beginning as a player was not easy too. But from my experience, I am sure that if the youngsters persevere, they will be rewarded for all their hard work one day,” he said.
For now, there are no players snapping at the heels of Chong Wei.
Two seasoned campaigners – Mohd Hafiz Hashim and Kuan Beng Hong – are trying to salvage their badminton careers while four elite squad back-up players – Tan Chun Seang, Chong Wei Feng, Mohd Arif Abdul Latif and Liew Daren – are still trying to make a breakthrough at the top level internationally.
“I hope all the back-up players, who are training with me, will make vast improvements in their game. Sometimes, I take them out and advise them. I want the best for them too,” said Chong Wei.
“The opportunity is all there but these players must put in extra effort.”
For the record, other than the car, Chong Wei has won several prestigious awards, including the Olympian of the Year and the National Sportsman of the Year.
He has also been appointed as the National Goodwill Ambassador for United Nations Children Fund (Unicef) Malaysia.
He also received monetary incentives from the National Sports Council (NSC) and BAM for his successes and has endorsed many products.

I would have thought that been given a porton car is a punishment, unless of course you allow to give it away.

From the advertising point of view, I wouldn't call the Perdana car a gift.
Indirectly,it's getting LCW's endorsement for the cost price of the car.That's smart of Proton.
On that basis, it would not be surprising he gets a new model regularly as long as he remains WR1.
