ALOR STAR: National number one Lee Chong Wei proved he is still the king of the local circuit after an embarrassingly easy 21-10, 21-6 win over Hafiz Hashim in the Proton Kedah Open National Circuit Badminton Championships at the KBA Hall here last night. 

The top ranked pair of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong also put their recent setback in the World Championships behind them to beat second seeds Choong Tan Fook-Lee Wan Wah 21-16, 22-20. 

In the men’s singles final, Chong Wei needed just 21 minutes to overcome a lacklustre Hafiz, who could not get his game going at all. 

A combination of misjudgements at the baseline and numerous unforced errors eased the way for the top seed to extend his unbeaten streak in local tournaments to six seasons. He has not lost a match since winning the 2002 National Grand Prix Finals. 

Despite the easy win, world number four Chong Wei chose not to sound too confident over his prospects of playing his compatriot in the opening round of the Japan Open this week.

THE much anticipated semi-finals showdown between Hafiz Hashim and Wong Choong Hann will not materialise as the latter, down with a fever, conceded a walkover in the quarter-finals of the Kedah Open in Alor Star yesterday.

Hafiz, the second seed, had to work hard for his 21-16, 18-21, 21-16 win over 2010-2012 project player Chong Wei Feng in the quarter-finals which lasted for 45 minutes.
