KUALA LUMPUR: Chong Wei's dramatic defeat against Lin Dan in the final of the London Olympic was exactly the kind of epic showdown that stops him thinking about retiring.

I wish I can see them play atleast once before their retired.

After 8 months long "vacation" the two-time Olympic Games champion Lin Dan captured the China Masters Grand Prix Gold title last week to jump 19 rungs from No. 104 to No. 83 in the world rankings.

"I welcome his return; Lin Dan's return to badminton is good for the sport. Playing against him is part of the puzzle that makes me motivated," Chong Wei said.

“His re-emergence will push me to train even harder. He is an exceptional player, I want to remain as his main challenger,” said Chong Wei.

Lin Dan is on course for his back to back title at the ongoing Asian Badminton Championships (ABC) in Gimcheon, South Korea.

“Lin Dan’s decision to hang around until 2016 Olympic has given me a good reason to stay motivated. I look forward to play against him and hopefully this will keep fans excited,” said Chong Wei.

If Badminton World Federation (BWF) awards a wildcard to Lin Dan for the World Championships in Copenhagen in August, badminton fans should expect to see these two guys square off against each other again at the world meet.

China will have 3 men’s singles representatives - Chen Long, Du Pengyu and Wang Zhengming in world championships.

Three Malaysia men's doubles are qualified for the world meet- Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong; however, Koo Kien Keat is no longer with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM).
