Taipei: Malaysian badminton superstar Lee Chong Wei will face off in a Friday quarter-final against world No. 1 Chen Long, whom he lost to in last year's World Championship final at Copenhagen.

In his first match on Thursday, the unseeded Lee Chong Wei produced a solid performance against tenth seed Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia by winning the first set with 21-12. While Lee trailed for most of the second set, he picked up his game when it mattered, rallying from 13-18 down to reel off the next 8 points to survive the stirring challenge from Sugiarto.Lee Chong Wei has a tough task against Chen Long in the Chinese Taipei quarter-final.
