BUKIT JALIL: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei admitted that he has yet to peak after struggling to overcome China’s Wang Zhengming in the second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open.
The 31-year-old Chong Wei was given a proper workout by the former world junior champion before prevailing 21-17, 21-18 at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jali on Thursday.
“I didn’t play my best today against Zhengming,” said Chong Wei.
“It’s tough taking on these China players because there are so many of them and there’s only one of me.
“But what’s important is that I win the match and continue to focus on my next match.
