Badminton fans in the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil erupted in joy yesterday when national number one Lee Chong Wei smashed his way to his fourth Malaysian Open title in five years. 

The top seeded Chong Wei came through unscathed despite immense pressure to beat South Korean Lee Hyun-il, who is the protege of the Malaysian’s former coach, Li Mao, 21-15, 11-21, 21-17 in a 62-minute final. And after the victory, Li Mao gave him a hug and a pat on the back.

INDONESIAN Rexy Mainaky has quit as the national doubles coach of the Malaysian team – barely seven months before the Beijing Olympic Games and four months before the Thomas Cup Finals. 

His decision comes a day after his charges – Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong, Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari-Mohd Zakry Abdul Latif and Tan Bin Shen-Ong Soon Hock – crashed out in the second round of the ongoing Malaysian Open badminton championships at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday. 

There were high expectations on defending champions Kien Keat-Boon Heong but a poor showing – especially by Boon Heong in the decider – saw them losing 19-21, 21-18, 21-19 to Denmark’s Jonas Rasmussen-Lars Paaske on Thursday.
