KUALA LUMPUR, May 31 — Shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei may take longer than four weeks to be 100 per cent fit for competition said National Sports Institute (ISN) physiotherapy expert Sandra Fiedler.
Fiedler said the world number one who injured his ankle may take at least five to six weeks to recover fully.
"I don’t’ think..(that he can recover within four weeks). It could aggravate the injury if he pushes too hard. However, he is in good physical condition, so the recovery could be a little faster," she told reporters at Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara here Thursday after a physiotherapy session with athletes.
She said Chong Wei must at all times maintain his fitness to speed up the rehab process.
