KUALA LUMPUR : World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei Sunday won the Super Series Finals in Malaysia when he outclassed South Korea's Park Sung Hwan in just 39 minutes.

The Malaysian, who last month emerged victorious in the World Super Series Masters Finals, was hardly troubled in beating his rival 21-14, 21-13 to take home the 15,000 dollar winner's cheque.

"I hope to remain undefeated in tournaments held in Malaysia. This will be my main target for the next few years," Lee told reporters.

Lee said he had expected a tough outing in the final with Park.

"I didn't expect to win so easily as I was quite tired after having gone into rubber games in the second round, quarter-finals and semi-finals.

"I woke up with lots of aches and pains but told myself that I had to push myself further as it was the final," he said.

Lee admitted he was under great pressure to win the competition in Malaysia after securing the silver medal at the Olympics and becoming the world No. 1.

World No 1 men’s single Lee Chong Wei is enroute to the final after scalping Denmark’s Peter Gade-Christensen 2-1 in the semi-final match at the Malaysian Open Super Series at Putra Stadium here today.

In the hour-long, closely-fought match, the Malaysian had to give away the first set 24-26 to the Dane, ranked world No 6, but regained his momentum to win the second 21-17 and then the rubber set 21-13.

“Peter Gade’s game-plan was a total surprise. He played fast, which caught me by surprise. In the first set, I was under pressure with his (manner of) play,” he said, adding however, that he managed to handle the pressure.

To motivate him, Chong Wei’s coach Misbun Sidek, who is still recovering from an illness, was also present to watch and advise him during the breaks.

Asked on his two straight wins in deciding rubber sets, Chong Wei said it was a good experience as he was on the verge of defeat but somehow, made a comeback to win them.
In the quarter-final’s yesterday, he beat Simon Santoso 21-9, 18-21, 21-7.

In tomorrow's final, Lee Chong Wei will face South Korean fifth seed Park Sung Hwan.

World number one Datuk Lee Chong Wei successfully defended his men’s singles title at the Malaysian Open Super Series after defeating South Korea’s Park Sung Hwan in straight sets at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil today.

Chong Wei, the first seed, only needed 39 minutes to win 21-14, 21-13, thus clinching his fifth title after winning them in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008. “I never expected an easy win against Park Sung Hwan in this final as my previous matches were decided in rubber sets by my opponents,” he said.

In the quarter-final and semi-final matches, Chong Wei had to endure three-set matches before winning against Simon Santoso of Indonesia, and 2007 champion Danish Peter Gade Christensen, respectively.
