HEAVY PRICE: Thigh injury, exhaustion floor Malaysian in Super Series Finals

LEE Chong Wei, who was shocked by China's Du Pengyu in his opening match, has withdrawn from the Super Series Finals citing a thigh injury and exhaustion in Shenzhen yesterday.

Chong Wei, who said he had suffered the injury while training for the tournament, was a pale shadow of himself as Pengyu secured a 12-21, 21-16, 22-20 win in 65 minutes in their opening Group A match.

Badminton World Federation (BWF) officials confirmed that Malaysia had sent an official letter yesterday.

Chong Wei's withdrawal means Malaysia's chances of winning a title in the Super Series are as good as over as other qualifiers also lost their opening matches.
