Chong Wei falls short yet again

Seoul (Korea): Three-time world champion Lin Dan’s stranglehold over the men’s game in badminton continued with a win over world No.1 Lee Chong Wei in the final of the Korea Open Premier Super Series on Sunday. Chong Wei, who just last week had won his homeMalaysia Open for the seventh time, forced the match into three games but could not get past his nemesis, falling 21-19 14-21 21-16 in an hour and 14 minutes.
China won four of five titles, the only exception being the men’s doubles, where home team Lee Yong Dae/ Jung Jae Sung had it surprisingly easy over Danish pair Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen 21-6 21-13.
The other three matches were all-China affairs. Wang Yihan won the women’s singles over Wang Shixian 21-14 21-18; Wang Xiaoli/ Yu Yang won the women’s doubles over Qing Tian/ Zhao Yunlei 21-18 19-21 21-4, while Zhang Nan/ Zhao Yunlei overcame Tao Jiaming/ Qing Tian 21-17 13-21 21-19 in the mixed.


About badmintonmania

Sometimes I wonder if I'm the Indian in Thoreau's Walden who makes cane baskets and is surprised nobody wants them. A. was talking about discipline when she said: "But Dev, if you want to move ahead in life, you'll have to be like that," and she may as well have defined everything else for me. I've played the low percentage game for too long to believe there's anything in it but the romance; the odds keep getting jacked up higher and higher; and you may be a good Idealist but a worse Fool.
