THE Malaysians will be greeted with tough first round matches in the Taiwan Open and there is a grim possibility that several players will make early exits today.

For starters, Hafiz Hashim, who has a tendency of losing to unknown players, must be cautious in his first round match where he meets Japan's Koichi Saeki.

PETALING JAYA: Malaysia's seasoned campaigners, led by Japan Open champion Lee Chong Wei, made it to the third round of the Taiwan Open in Taipei yesterday but it was the end of the road for the Project 2010-2012 players. 

National number one Chong Wei began his bid for his first back-to-back titles in his career with a 21-10, 21-16 win over Indonesian youngster Ari Yuli Wahyu. He went on to chalk up a 21-10, 21-12 victory over Japan's Yousuke Nakanishi to set up a third-round match against Hong Kong's Ng Wei. 

Joining him in the last 16 stage of competition today are Mohd Hafiz Hashim, Wong Choong Hann, Yeoh Kay Bin and KLRC's Sairul Amar Ayob.

LEE Chong Wei beat Indonesia’s Taufik Hidayat in a thrilling Japan Open final at Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium yesterday and in the process has regained some of the public’s faith in him.

LEE Chong Wei’s Japan Open victory has proven that he can beat the best but the World No 4 must start looking at the bigger picture — the Beijing Olympics next year — with every step he takes over the next 11 months.

Chong Wei, at 26, will be in his prime during the Olympics and he should realise that it will be his final shot at gold in the world’s most prestigious sporting event.
