    "I knew that he will come out shooting right from the start. He was playing incredibly well in the first set."

    "I did not know what to do and was just looking for ways to score one or two points. I ended up getting three. I admire him, and it's just a matter of time before we'll see him again"

    Very humble and warm comments from a hard-working player who is always trying his best for so many years :)

    I do not know whether anyone noticed his wide smile when he gave a "thumbs-up" to hafiz when the latter did a round the back left hand block which tricked him. Anyone got that pic? Kwun?

    i don't have it. just went through the pics i took of that match. maybe some other guys might have caught it.

    i did managed to catch him grinning at his last couple of service in the final match. he was quite confident that the title will be his very soon.

    Jonassen defeated Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei 3-15, 17-15,15-4 to win the SO title

    Jonassen clawed his way back to 12-12, then two cross court smashes by Lee gave him two match points at 14-12. But the Dane denied him twice before coming back to win the game 17-15, then running away from his demolarised opponent to easily win the third 15-4. “I was struggling in the opening game, hoping to get a point or two. In the end I got three but I knew I had to do something special to come back in the match,†a beaming Jonassen said shortly after the final.

    “It was a question of survival in game two. I was always behind and when he went 14-12, I decided to attack. I took some chances and they came off. “Things just went right for me and in the decider I knew I had the upper hand because I had the momentum behind me,†said the Dane, whose only other success in Asia was the 2003 Korean Open title. A dejected Lee, aged 22, was left to rue his lost opportunities. “My chance was at 14-12 in the second game but I just couldn’t finish him off. His experience proved the key and he managed to keep the shuttle in play,†he said. “In the end, I was too tired to put up any kind of fight and lost the third game very easily.â
