Chong Wei ready to rise in Denmark again
« on: October 12, 2015, 06:15:30 AM »
Lee Chong Wei has wiped out all the bad memories in Denmark from his mind.

Last year, the former world No. 1 shuttler failed a dope test after his semi-final at the World Championships in Copenhagen in August. Besides being banned for eight months, Chong Wei’s silver medal, which was awarded to him for finishing runner-up to Chen Long of China, was forfeited.

The 32-year-old is now back in the Scandinavian country – the site of the darkest episode in his career – to compete in the Denmark Open, which begins in Odense on Wednesday.

“I’m not feeling nervous or anything coming back here again,” confessed Chong Wei in a telephone interview from Odense.

“It’s all forgotten. But I want to do much better and enjoy a better outing this time.”

The world No. 25 has won the Denmark Open three times – in 2005, 2006 and 2012.

Chong Wei said his focus would be to break into the world’s top 20 by doing well in Europe.

After the Denmark Open, he will compete at next week’s France Open in Paris.

“I did not achieve good results at the last two Superseries (in Japan and South Korea). It broke my momentum but I’m determined to get back my rhythm.

“My condition is okay and I hope to play with more confidence. I just want to improve my world ranking,” he said.

Chong Wei is in the same half of the draw with top seed Chen Long and nemesis Lin Dan of China, but he is not making a big hue and cry over the tough draw.

“It doesn’t matter if I meet them early or later in the tournament. I will just have to face them with confidence,” said Chong Wei.

“My plan is simple ... just enjoy every match in Denmark,” he added.

The father of two has been drawn to play a tricky first-round match against P. Kashyap of India. If Chong Wei wins, he will probably take on Wei Nan of Hong Kong in the second round.

Chong Wei is then tipped to meet Chen Long in the quarter-finals. He lost to the Chinese star in the final of the World Championships in Jakarta in August.

If he can pull the rug from under defending champion Chen Long, Chong Wei may meet Lin Dan in the semi-finals.

Second seed Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark heads the lower half of the draw. The other notable players in the half are K. Srikanth of India and Japan’s Kento Momota.

When I was young I used to pray for a bike, then I realized that God doesn't work that way, so I stole a bike and prayed for forgiveness.

It is dangerous to have a naive mindset, it may cause serious faults in decision making.

Former world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei did just enough to reach the second round of men’s singles event at the Denmark Open.

The unseeded Chong Wei battled his way to a 21-14, 21-15 win over Glasgow Commonwealth Games champion P. Kashyap of India in a 47-minute opening round match.

Chong Wei will take on Wei Nan of Hong Kong for a place in the quarter-finals.

He was happy to clear the first hurdle after setbacks in the last two Superseries in Japan and South Korea last month.

He lost to Lin Dan of China in the second round in Japan and was beaten by the 2013 world junior champion Heo Kwang-hee of South Korea in the first round of the qualifying tournament in the Korean Open.

“I did not have good results in the last tournament and came here with a determination to do better,” said the world No. 25 Chong Wei.

“Kashyap is a world No. 8 player and I did not take his challenge lightly.

“I want to get the tournament feeling back again – that’s my focus. I will face Wei Nan next. He is a good player and I will not underestimate him too,” he promised.

It is all over for Lee Chong Wei at the Denmark Open.

Chong Wei's misery in the Superseries continued when he was beaten 18-21, 19-21 by Wei Nan of Hong Kong in the second round.

It is his third early defeat for Chong Wei in Superseries since returning from an eight-month doping ban.

He lost in the second round of Japan Open and fell in the opening round of the qualifying tournament in the Korean Open, both last month.

Chong Wei was visibly disappointed with his loss.

"Wei Nan played exceptionally well today. I could not turn the game around," said Chong Wei.

"I do not think this is the end of me. I just need to get the confidence back," added Chong Wei, who will take part in the French Open in Paris next week.

National coach Hendrawan has brushed aside the notion that Lee Chong Wei’s career is going downhill.

The former Indonesian world champion admitted that Chong Wei is struggling, but is optimistic that his charge will book a place in next year’s Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

On Thursday, Chong Wei lost 18-21, 19-21 to Wei Nan of Hong Kong in the second round of the Denmark Open.

Last month, he was subdued by 2013 world junior champion Heo Kwang-hee of South Korea in the first round of the Korean Open qualifying match.

His friends and former rivals – Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia and Peter-Gade Christensen of Denmark – experienced a similar dip towards the end of their careers before finally calling it quits.

“It is too early to make judgments. Look at how he came back from his eight-month ban. He was all fired up and even made it to the final of the World Championships.

“It is obvious that he is currently struggling. Chong Wei’s next assignment is the French Open and we have about a week to re-evaluate his game. I have faith that he will bounce back because I know how much badminton means to him.”

Hendrawan credited Wei Nan for his win and added that he saw improvement in Chong Wei too.

“We know Wei Nan’s style ... he is an attacking player but usually he will fade away halfway through the match. But this time he never gave up until the end,” said Hendrawan.
