Perak: Whether it was for fun or whether Lee Chong Wei needed to create some room for the very much-needed relaxation ahead of world championships, the serious Perak Open badminton tournament that kicked off three days ago, turned in to a fun time when Lee stepped onto badminton court with Vivian Hoo to play in the first round of mixed doubles on Monday. Lee/Vivian's scary power, speed and athleticism proved too much for a courageous Mohd Lutfi Zaim Bin Abdul Khalid/Julia Wong Pei Xian pair, winning the match 21-10, 21-16 and advancing into second round where they will face Lim Tiat Long/Ng Sin Zou on Tuesday.Lee Chong Wei seems to enjoy playing mixed doubles with Vivian Hoo.
