PETALING JAYA: National men’s singles shuttler Wong Choong Hann is craving for that winning feeling, again. 

The seasoned campaigner has not won any international individual title since the 2003 Taiwan Open. 

With his career coming to an end, he knows that time is running out for him to experience the euphoria of lifting the winner's trophy. 

Choong Hann plans to give up the sport gradually after the Beijing Olympic Games in August. 

Choong Hann will have seven chances to satisfy his craving as he will be down to compete in these tournaments – German Open (Feb 26-March 2), All-England (March 4-9), Swiss Open (March11-16), India Open (April 1-6), Asian Badminton Championships (April 15-20), Singapore Open (July 10-15) and the Indonesian Open (July 17-22). 

His best chance, though, is in the German Open.
