All-England: It's a go for Chong Wei
by mervin menon
Lee Chong Wei in training on Friday. He will meet Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Thailand in the first round of the All-England.
KUALA LUMPUR: It’s all systems go for world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei. He will be leaving for the All-England tournament on Saturday night.
The 31-year-old Penangite had on Friday stated that he may pull out of the tournament as he had not fully recovered from an ankle injury sustained two weeks ago during a doubles exhibition match with long-time rival Lin Dan of China.
Chong Wei, who won the All-England in 2010 and 2011, however deemed himself fit enough to compete after Saturday’s final training session at the Juara Stadium.
Although Chong Wei did not comment on the matter, national coach Tey Seu Bock confirmed his participation in the prestigious event.
“Chong Wei will be making the trip to play in the tournament,” said Seu Bock, declining to comment on the injury.
If all goes well for the singles shuttler, he will have a chance to exact revenge on world No. 2 Chen Long of China.
Chen Long defeated Chong Wei in last year’s All-England final, and again last month at the Korean Open final.
But first, the Malaysian ace will need to navigate past a tricky Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Thailand in the first round.
With Lee CW confirmation to fly to London, now badminton fans will hope to see Lee CW-Chen L final clash once again at the NIA
wow, nice. only competing in all england, and datuk gets first class ticket.
for comparison, Olympics and world champion Lin Dan, after his sensational win in 2010 Thomas Cup, said this :
“I am tired, very tired. I hope to change my economy class ticket to first class when we return home tonight,” said Lin Dan.
They've made it in!
Should qualify to face ............... Cai Yun/ Lu Kai in round 1
Wow! I'm so happy that they made it into the draw. I think they have a lot of potential and have very complimentary skills.
But I'm not sure how prepared they will be for this tournament. During the past 3 weeks of training camp, maybe Zhang Nan has been mostly practicing with Zhao Yunlei since he didn't expect that he'd be playing with Fu Haifeng in the AE.
I believe that should they make it to the main draw, FHF/ZN will play Hoon/Tan.
if Darren liew beats wei nan, who will he face for the next round. How to see who plays which for Qualifying 1-4. Anyone can help ?
My impression was that since there are seed 1-4 in qualification, these should correspond to the (Q1)-(Q4) for the main draw. (I don't really have a justification for this, maybe someone else can verify?)
I've been following TS and concluding that seed numbers don't correspond to Q1-Q4 for the main draw. Look at the excel version and you will find out that the order of qualifying diagram is corresponding to Q1-Q4.
So, as for the MD, FHF/ZN are in the Q3 and would play against CY/KL in the main draw.
ok thanks, so winner between Darren liew or wei nan will face winner between zul or LDK. Then subsequently will meet NGUYEN
