KUALA LUMPUR: With the semi-final slot booked, Datuk Lee Chong Wei is still hungry for a win over Jan O. Jorgensen of Denmark in his last group match of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) World Superseries Finals at the Kuala Lumpur Badminton Stadium tomorrow.

The world number one, who breezely sidelined Thailand's Boonsak Ponsana 21-6, 21-8 today, said Jorgensen had shown a lot of improvement in the past few years to become a more confident player. 
"He's an attacking-style player, so I've to keep my defence in check. Do not underestimate him," he told reporters on the sidelines of the tournament here today.
To date, Chong Wei has won eight matches and lost one against the 26-year-old Danish player.
The two last met at the Hong Kong Open last month where Jorgensen gave Chong Wei a hard time in the second set before bowing out.
On his match today, Chong Wei said Boonsak was not his usual self, describing the game as "quite a laid-back" affair.
"But for me, I did my best. I wanted to finish the game fast so that I can keep some energy for the match tomorrow," he said.
