KUALA LUMPUR: World No. 1 Lee Chong Wei is truly a role model for young aspiring players.

On Sunday, the 30-year-old showed the right attitude and strong resolve to win the Japan Open in Tokyo.

He came from behind in the opening game to beat a gritty Kenichi Tago of Japan 23-21, 21-17 to lift a record fourth Japan Open crown.

It was his fifth Super Series title this year after winning in Malaysia, South Korea, India and Indonesia. Lee Chong Wei showing the participants the proper way to hold a badminton racquet at a coaching clinic yesterday.

Just a month ago, Chong Wei was down in the dumps.

He suffered cramps and lost to Lin Dan of China in the final of the World Championships. Then on Thursday, Rashid Sidek, one of his coaches, resigned.
Coach Tey Seu Bock was full of praise for Chong Wei, saying the juniors should emulate him.

“His hunger to win titles is still there. He always shows the right attitude in training and competition. In the Japan Open, he never gave up although Tago was attacking him from all corners.

“We have an excellent role model,” said Seu Bock.

Besides inspiring the juniors through his victories, Seu Bock said Chong Wei also never failed to share his knowledge of the game with the younger players.

“Before the Japan Open, he conducted a coaching clinic for juniors (organised by Maxis One Club). He may have his hands full but he never neglects the juniors,” said Seu Bock.

“Hopefully, all these juniors who aspire to be like Chong Wei will pick up all the good traits and grow up to be just like him,” added Seu Bock.
