Lee Chong Wei continued his journey at the All England 2010 badminton championship when he defeated Chetan Anand of India 21-15, 21-16 in a 26 minutes battle.
Sony is next up for Chong Wei. It will be a mouth watering affair as Chong Wei will be looking to avenge his defeat to Sony at the last World Championships.
The biggest shocked for Malaysia happened in the men doubles event when top seed Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong lost in straights games to Danish pairing of Jonas Rasmussen-Lars Paaske. The top Malaysian pair lost in just 27 minutes, loosing 13-21 and 11-21.
Malaysia women team was more disappointing as all crashed out. Wong Mew Choo lost to Jiang Yanjiao 18-21, 9-21.
Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui lost to Greysia Polii-Meiliana Jauhari 20-22,15-21. Pei Tty-Eei Hui is ranked fourth in this tournament.
Gan Teik Chai-Tan Bin Shen, Hafiz, Tan Fook-Wan Wah together with Chong Wei are still the remaining players left to carry Malaysia challenge in the All England.
I won’t be surprised if Chong Wei and company will be sent home all together today as their nemesis waiting at the next round are all tough.
