KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei barely broke sweat en route to cruising into the second round of the India Open badminton championships in New Delhi.

The 30-year-old Chong Wei, who became a father last week, made sure that the sacrifice he was making was worthwhile with a thoroughly dominant performance in beating Ireland’s Scott Evans 21-16, 21-5 in just 23 minutes in the first round yesterday.

The win was also the perfect tonic for Chong Wei, following a surprising defeat in the Australian Open earlier this month.

He will next face Japan’s Kazumasa Sakai, who defeated Hong Kong’s Wong Wing Ki 21-16, 18-21, 21-12, for a place in the quarter-finals.

NO MOTIVATION: Daddy wants to spend more time with his newborn son

LEE Chong Wei will most likely skip the Malaysia Open but men's doubles Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are almost assured of retaining their title in view of the mediocre  opposition at the grand prix gold event which begins at Juara Stadium on Tuesday.

World No 1 Chong Wei, who is currently competing in the India Open in New Delhi, may opt not to play in the tournament so that he can spend more time with his newborn son Kingston.National back-up shuttler Chong Wei Feng has never won an international title.

Having won the event four times in a row, it will be difficult for Chong Wei to motivate himself and added to that, his preparation has also not been ideal for almost two months now.

The tournament, originally to be held in Kuantan, has been moved to Juara Stadium and the start of the competition was also brought forward by one day as the finals coincided with the May 5 general elections.
