Lee Chong Wei, World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei makes everything look so easy when he captured the Indonesia Open in super style to cap a perfect half-year mark of an amazing run this season. Yesterday, Chong Wei cool and confident demolish Peter Gade-Christensen of Denmark with a 21-11, 21-7 victory in just 31 minutes of the men’s singles final to nail the Indonesia Open for the fourth time and third in a row.
Ironically, it was easier for Chong Wei to win their final four in Indonesia, but had won the biggest catch – a whopping U.S. and 45,000.
And with yesterday’s victory, Chong Wei has collected a total of six titles to show that he is the most consistent player in the first half. His other titles this year are the finals of the Super Series Masters, Malaysian Open, All England, India and Malaysia Open Open Gold Grand Prix.
With rare and fantastic run so far, Chong Wei has certainly get in a comfortable position going into the next major tournament – the World Championship – to be held in London from August 8-14. No Malaysian has won the world gather so far.
Yesterday, Chong Wei was very happy with his one-sided victory over his old rival Christensen.
“I’ve played many times Peter and I know that his memory game. He is a good player, but today, I had good control of the match and managed to remove one of my easiest match against him,” said Chong Wei.
“I expected him to organize a fight back in the second game as before because Peter is always a fighter, but I think after trailing 4-16 who left the job.”
Yesterday, Chong Wei, who had lost only once in 13 previous meetings against Christensen, was a cut above all the departments – especially with its accuracy in the network and the ability to change the pace of the game at will.
Even fool the Danish with some of its complicated movements of the baseline, which often leaves frustrated Christensen along the opening match. To the surprise of Chong Wei, his opponent, who always fights back, did not show the life and fire in the second game and made it easier for Chong Wei to frolic in the house quickly 21-7.
“I won six titles in six months and it feels good. And all I want to do is to continue the good run. This put me in good spirits before the World Championships. I will continue to stay focused on my mission to win the title of first world country, “he said. But before the World Championships, Chong Wei will participate in a tournament – Kedah Open from July 13-16 in Alor Setar – even before it was hoped to skip the event to give 100% concentration in world come together.
The Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) has made it mandatory for all players to participate in the national tournament meet domestic and Chong Wei.
“I met the BAM, but were unable to change the dates. I still want to qualify for the national finals GP and keep my unbeaten run in the local scene and I decided to go.”

“Chong Wei has done well to approach the game differently today. There was more variety in their attacks and also managed to boot successfully deceiving their shots. But I’m still very surprised with easy win over Peter Chong Wei today”, Seu Bock said.
“In general, Peter is the guy who never give up, but I saw him pulling back in the second game.
“I’ve seen these two players many times and this time was actually less difficult for Chong Wei.”
