KUALA LUMPUR, July 14 (Bernama) -- World number one and Malaysia's top men's singles shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei will be hoping to set the records straight against Lin Dan of China when both head to Hyderabad, India for the World Championships in August.

Chong Wei who beat Lin Dan, the world number two, at the Swiss Open to gain some consolation for his loses at the Beijing Olympics final and All England final, is currently in his best form ever, after clinching the Singapore Open, Indonesian Open and Malaysian Open on a trot.

However, Chong Wei knows pretty well that the World Championships will be different ball game altogether, especially his two previous disappointing outings in Los Angeles (2005), Madrid (2006) and Kuala Lumpur (2007).

Chong Wei who despite not having fully recovered from a back injury, had already started training two weeks ago under his coach Datuk Misbun Sidek.

"The training this time is very tough but I am not complaining as I know what Misbun is doing will help me," Chong Wei told reporters here Tuesday.

Despite having tasted success in numerous tournaments, Chong Wei, a silver medallist at the Olympics, has yet to step foot in a final of the World Championships, let alone win one.

Meanwhile, Chong Wei who has been appointed the brand ambassador for 100 Plus, is expected to conduct a number of badminton clinics in Johor, Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Kota Kinabalu.

Chong Wei said despite a tight training schedule, he had decided to spend some time to help young aspiring players to learn the basics of badminton through the clinics.

"I and Misbun are involved in the programme that is aimed at promoting and developing badminton in the country," he said.
