Kuala Lumpur: Thomas Cup isn't about Lee Chong Wei anymore. It's about the team. This Thomas Cup is going to be tough for Malaysia, mainly because besides World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, there is no other player who can guarantee to secure a second or third point. Having said that, players like Daren Liew, Chong Wei Feng, Goh V Shem-Lim Khim Wah, Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, or even Tan Boon Heong-Chan Peng Soon, if they can rediscover their form, they are more than capable of beating anyone on their day.
On Monday, Lee Chong Wei displayed great leadership by urging his teammate to be fearless and relentless. He wanted his teammate to keep scrapping and keep coming at their opponent until the bitter end. “We have nothing to lose in the Thomas Cup. I've told Wei Feng and Daren to stay positive. Everyone should be fearless and confident, “said Chong Wei.
