Meanwhile, he's just keeping a low profile and keeping his ranking going in around the top 5. Just staying in maintainence mode.

    So now you guys know the truth...

    Meanwhile, pass the salt-shaker around, won't you...
    I hope thats true but it really sounds like after 10 rounds of vodka on a 1st class cabin between London to New York

    London outing will not be the last world tournament for Chong Wei
    By RAJES PAUL
    KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 1 shuttler Lee Chong Wei served up some good news for Malaysian fans before leaving for the Bath University in London yesterday to resume his final preparation for the World Championships.
    The 29-year-old Chong Wei announced that this year’s world meet, to be held at Wembley from Aug 8-14, would not be his last.
    All the World Championships-bound players left for England yesterday and they will undergo centralised training at the Bath University until Aug 4 before leaving for Wembley.
    Besides Chong Wei, the others are Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif-Hoon Thien How, Lim Khim Wah-Chan Peng Soon, Chin Eei Hui-Wong Pei Tty, Ng Hui Lin-Ng Hui Ern, Goh Liu Ying, Ong Jian Guo-Sabrina Chong.
    Veteran Wong Choong Hann, who is the sole independent player in the squad, will head for Wembley next week.
    Chong Wei had initially stated that his badminton career would take a back seat after next year’s London Olympic Games.
    This year, his rivals Lin Dan of China and Peter-Gade Christensen of Denmark also indicated that they had no intention of stepping down until the new generation of players takes over from them.
    “The World Championships are held every year except when it’s the Olympic year. I will compete at the next world meet (2013) and even the next Asian Games (2014) if I can still meet the physical demands of the game,” said Chong Wei.
    “I have not won the Olympic, world and Asian titles and I want to add them to my collection. I have also decided to stay on because there is no one to take over my place just yet.”
    None of Chong Wei’s younger team-mates – Liew Daren, Chan Kwong Beng and Chong Wei Feng – are in the same league as him.
    Chong Wei, who has had time to study the draw for the world meet, said: “Basically, I will be meeting the same players. China have four qualifiers and two of them – Chen Jin and Chen Long – are in my half. I will take it one match at a time.”
    The other two China players – three-time world champion Lin Dan and Du Pengyu – are in the lower half of the draw.
    Besides Chen Jin and Chen Long, the others in Chong Wei’s half are Thailand’s Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk, Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka of Indonesia, South Korean Park Sung-hwan and former world champion Taufik Hiadayt of Indonesia.
    “I am excited at the prospect of playing at Wembley. It is the same venue for next year’s Olympic Games. It will be a good experience for all the players,” he said.
    “My goal remains the same – to go all out to win the country’s first title for the country. “For now, my concern is to stay injury-free.”
    For the record, Malaysia have failed to win a world title since the tournament’s inception in 1977.

    Badminton: Chong Wei to review retirement decision

    K.M. Boopathy

    2011/07/27

    LEE Chong Wei is having second thoughts about retiring after the 2012 London Olympics as he wants to play in the 2013 World Championships, provided he is still the World No 1 and free of injuries.
    Chong Wei said yesterday that next month's World Championships in London may not be the last when commenting on his chances of winning his first major crown.

    This may be interpreted as his way of avoiding pressure leading up to the Aug 8-14 event but Chong Wei feels there is no reason to quit if he remains the best player in the business two years from now.

    "The London World Championships is important as I am aiming to win it but it may not be the last for me. My form and condition permitting, I may still play in 2013," said Chong Wei.

    "Yes, I did mention several times that I would like to retire after next year's Olympics because my target is to win gold and it is the biggest event. But if I can stay as the World No 1 and there are no injuries, then why not? I can probably continue until the 2014 Asian Games.



    "During the post-Olympic period, I will focus on the big events that I haven't won like the Asian Games and a few others."


    However, this does not mean Chong Wei has already thrown in the towel ahead of the World Championships.

    "I suspected from the beginning, that I will be playing at least two China players from the quarter-finals.

    "And I've got the stronger two in Chen Long (in the last eight) and Chen Jin (in the semis),"said Chong Wei.

    "I also have some good players in early matches, so I will take it one match at a time. I don't want to approach it as if it's the last outing.

    "The training at the University of Bath is important as we can acclimatise to local conditions and adjust to the time change. This is crucial in getting ready for the event."

    Chong Wei and his teammates left for the University of Bath in England last night. They will train there until Aug 4 and then shift their base to London later the same day.

    If got sponsor, why not? LCW can even sponsor himself, as long as fit to play. He can go independent, become like WCH, Taufik. As for winning major, maybe not, I think he just take it as it comes

    well
    some rumor said lcw paid 6 figure income tax
    so i guess many sponsor would like to sponsor him
    till date he had more than 10 endorsement contract already,and each of them at least rm 300,000 i guess
    he can afford it,just like taufik

    Theoretically. But he may not be able to beat Chen long after 2012 or even earlier.

    I also have the feeling that not only LCW wants to do like WCH, but also like TH.

    No need! Wife is qualified to become trainer, assistant coach, physiotherapist, masseur... LCW adds to free chair collection for his new massage parlour business.
    BAM also saves a lot of money, help to find more MS champions (ahem... wishful thinking here...)
    Win-win situation.
