PETALING JAYA: The year may be coming to an end but Lin Dan is not yet done with Lee Chong Wei. He aims to heap more misery on the Malaysian World No. 1 at the season ending Super Series Masters Finals in Liuzhou, China, from Dec 14-18.

In Lin Dan’s absence, Chong Wei has won the Masters Finals for the past three years. But that fine record is in jeopardy as four-time world champion Lin Dan will finally be making his first appearance in the Masters Finals.

The World No. 2 won the China Open yesterday to confirm his place as the number three qualifier after the completion of the 12-leg Super Series.

Only the top eight qualifiers get to compete in the season finale which offers a total purse of US$500,000.

Lin Dan skipped the first two editions, in 2008 and 2009, because the tournament did not offer world ranking points and he did not see the need to make his presence felt. The Badminton World Federation (BWF) amended their rules last year and offered ranking points.

SHANGHAI: Lin Dan made it four wins out of five for his country at the China Open on Sunday, but he needed seven match points before beating his teammate Chen Long in a see-saw match in the men's singles final.

Lin was full of confidence after his victory in the semis over tournament first seed and his arch rival, Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, but he had to work hard to wrap the title up in two games, 21-17, 26-24.Lin Dan made it four wins out of five for his country at the China Open

"I felt quite relaxed after yesterday's match. I didn't think too much about today... because the gold medal would belong to China, but in the latter half of the second game I was not so patient because victory was so close" Lin said.

Lin also admitted his win over Olympic champion Lee Chong Wei the day before had taken its toll.

"Yesterday's match gave me more pressure... In case there would be a third game I would not have the obvious advantage. Anyway, yesterday's match cost me a lot of strength", he said.
