Lee Chong Wei Won! I know that a lot of Malaysian readers come here, so I’m sure that you’re all very proud of Lee Chong Wei. Lee won the finals 21-16, 21-16, and I’m not that surprised. Lee is the number one player in the world, but he still needs to beat Lin Dan in one of the big events like Worlds, Olympics, or All Englands.
The next big tournament, is the Yonex Sunrise India Open 2009, and the top two seeds are Lee Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat.
Unfortunately for Andrew Smith my prediction regarding his semi-final result was shattered by Chen Jin today. Chen crushed Smith 21-10, 21-5! Ouch, that hurts, especially since he has done well against the Chinese before. Maybe next time.
As for the rest of the semi-finals, well Lee Chong Wei beat Taufik Hidayat again, but this time it was much closer with Lee sneaking it out in 3 games, 21-23, 21-12, 21-19. Surprisingly Lee’s opponent will be the rising star of Denmark, Jan O Jorgensen who defeated Sairul Ayob Amar 21-18, 21-16. On the bottom we’ll have Chen Jin playing Lin Dan who beat Hsieh Yu Hsin 21-16, 21-14.
Lee Chong Wei is a pretty safe bet, but Chen Jin could beat Lin Dan. My money is still on a Lee vs Lin rematch of last week.
