LEE Chong Wei will aim to better his super series haul of six titles in 2010 when he competes in the Denmark Open on Oct 15-20 and French Open on Oct 22-27.

  This season, the World No 1 has already won five titles: the Korea, Malaysia, India, Indonesia and Japan Opens. And it will be his most successful year if he captures the Denmark and French Open crowns.

  Chen Long of China, the World No 2, will be Chong Wei's biggest threat in both the tournaments but national coach Tey Seu Bock said Chong Wei has maintained his fitness level and is looking forward to winning two titles.

  "Chong Wei wants to better his record in the super series and if he wins the Denmark and French Opens, he will achieve it.

   "He will also compete in the China and Hong Kong Opens in November before taking a break from international tournaments and focus on his training.

   "Chen Long will be his main rival in both the tournaments while Du Pengyu (of China) will be the other player to look out for in Denmark. However, we are still not sure of their condition after the World Championships.

   "It will also be a good test of whether he can sustain his performance in back-to-back tournaments as he is 31 now. If he struggles in Europe and also in China and Hong Kong Opens, we have to review his tournament plan next year."

    Chong Wei won the Denmark Open last year ad withdrew from the French Open due his wedding. In his absence, Liew Daren won the title in Paris.
