vs

Top seeded Lee Chong Wei couldnt live up to his top see status when he lost tamely to rejuvenated Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the Men Singles Finals in the Macau Open 2008.

Chong Wei was leading in the first set but couldn’t capitalize from his lead and lost narrowly 19-21. In the second set, Chong Wei was a step slower compared to Taufik Hidayat and Taufik easily beat Chong Wei 21-15 to win his first title of the year.

I am happy to see Taufik Hidayat back and showing appetite in court to challenge against the best in the world once again. Sadly, Chong Wei will need to buck up to really show that his No.1 ranking in the world is no fluke.

Chong Wei hadn’t won any title when ranked 1st. Enjoy the video of the Lee Chong Wei vs Taufik Hidayat match below.

    I can feel taufik great smash back , ok that time he lose his prime time but he do get his back in this super series . It is quite long time after his prime time done and he get back his prime , so it is not possible if he can play like this back . I hope so ..
