Malaysia Lost In Korean Open
Lee Chong Wei, the reigning Malaysian Open men’s singles champion, had to concede a walkover to South Korean Lee Hyun-il due to high fever in the second round of the championships, which is the second leg of the Super Series.
Lee Chong Wei gave up the match after winning the first game 21-19 and losing the second 17-21.
There were high hopes on the second seed Lee Chong Wei getting the better of Hyun-il once again after having beaten the latter in the final of the Malaysian Open on Sunday but it did not happen.
It was also a sad end for Chan Chong Ming-Choon Eng in the men’s doubles. After losing the first game 13-21, the duo did well to win the second 23-21 to force a rubber game against South Koreans Jung Jae-sung-Lee Yong dae.
But it proved too much for Choon Eng, who limped out with a knee injury at 3-11 in the decider of the second round match.
On the women doubles, also sad ending as Wong Mew Choo lost to Yun Hwa LEE (Korea). Top Malaysian women’s singles player Wong Mew Choo muffed a good opportunity to make a second consecutive semi-finals appearance in the Super Series. She was beaten 11-21, 16-21 in the first round by South Korean Lee Yun-hwa.
So, I will not be watching Final Live tomorrow as I was very disappointed and none of the Malaysian Players are playing.
I think our Malaysia players need to keep it up and keep on training and training without loosing hope so that only we could achieve good result in Olympic China on August.
