World number one Lee Chong Wei earned himself a revenge attempt with All-England champion Chen Long after escaping from close defeat to achieve a breathtaking victory.

BIRMINGHAM, United Kingdom: World number one Lee Chong Wei earned himself a revenge attempt with All-England champion Chen Long after escaping from close defeat to achieve a breathtaking victory.Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia prepares to return against Son Wan Ho of South Korea during their All England Open Badminton Championships men's singles semi-final match in Birmingham, central England.

The Malaysian did that with a 14-21, 21-19, 21-15 win over Son Wan Ho, the in-form world number 11 from Korea, after being close to the exit at a game down and 15-17 and 17-18 down in the second.

In those difficult moments, Lee played his most controlled badminton, either deep to the back-line or tight to the net, and picked his moments perceptively to apply the sudden moments of pressure which took him to his sixth successive All-England Open final.

Son, by contrast, tended to over-press in the crises after playing a superb match in which he took advantage of Lee's error-tinged first game and also pushed on to an early four-point lead in the final game.

BIRMINGHAM: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei huffed and puffed his way past South Korea’s Son Wan-ho to check into the final of the All-England badminton championships.

Two-time winner Chong Wei, who has enjoyed an easy run so far, found the 25-year-old military man a sturdy wall as he slogged for a 14-21, 21-19, 21-15 win in the semi-finals at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham on Saturday.Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei had a close shave with defeat before beating South Korean Son Wan-ho in three sets in the semi-final of the All-England in Birmingham on Saturday.

Despite taking a 5-1 lead in the first game, Chong Wei was caught off-guard by Wan-ho’s steely determination as the Korean came back strongly to win it.

The two-time Olympic silver medallist then toyed with the prospect of a surprise – and painful exit – when Wan-ho led 17-15 in the second game.

Being the fighter that he is, Chong Wei managed to muster enough firepower in reserves to force a deciding rubber by the skin of his teeth.

He then stormed ahead to seal his place in his sixth straight All-England final after 71 minutes.
