PETALING JAYA: Four-time world badminton champion Lin Dan of China was surprisingly taken to the distance before checking into the men’s singles semi-finals at the Ger­man Open in Mulheim on Friday.

He had to toil for 54 minutes to beat Hans-Kristian Vittinghus of Denmark 21-19, 23-21 to set up a clash with Indonesian Tommy Sugiarto for a place in the final.

Lin Dan’s compatriot Chen Jin fared even worse when he was dumped out in the third round. He went down tamely at 9-21, 17-21 to Wong Wing Ki of Hong Kong and the defeat will certainly spoil his hope of making the cut for the London Olympic Games.

Chen Jin is ranked fifth in the world and he has to move at least one rung up to join two of his team-mates Lin Dan (world No. 2) and Chen Long (No. 3) to make the Games. A country can have the maximum three players if all of them are ranked in the top four.

Chen Jin, however, will get a chance for a quick revenge when meets Wing Ki in the opening round of the All-England in Birmingham on Wednesday.
