LEE Tsuen Seng secured his first international title of the year when he beat compatriot Sairul Amar Ayub in the KLRC Australian International Championships in Wendouree, Victoria yesterday.

The final between Tsuen Seng and Sairul, both attached to KLRC Bhd, lasted 64 minutes before the former won 21-16, 19-21, 21-15. Tsuen Seng had also clinched the Canadian International and US Open titles last year.

His best achievement still remains a win over Taufik Hidyat in the 2002 Thomas Cup final which Malaysia lost 2-3 to Indonesia.

Tsuen Seng quit the national team in the middle of 2005 to join KLRC.

PETALING JAYA: All three Olympic medals for Malaysia have come from the men’s badminton players, but if the draw provides any indication there is hope of woman shuttler Wong Mew Choo breaking the trend in Beijing next month.

While the Badminton Association of Malaysia’s one-medal target remains despite the relatively tough draw facing the men shuttlers, head coach Yap Kim Hock is not discounting the chances of Mew Choo springing a surprise at the Games.

“I have studied the draw and it is good that the on-form Danish player Tine Rasmussen (pic) is in the top half of the draw and it will give Mew Choo a shot at going into the medal rounds.

“Bulgarian (Petya Pedelcheva), who is ranked in the top 20 now, should be her first test in the third round but Mew Choo should be able to overcome her.Image
