Kuala Lumpur: In recent months, it has become increasingly doubtful what impact Chong Wei Feng could bring to the Malaysia Thomas Cup team. When on the court, his shots often lacked precision, his scoring instincts have been dulled, and his confidence has plummeted.

Just 10 days before Thomas Cup Finals, The second time could be a charm for national men's singles shuttler Chong Wei Feng at the New Delhi Thomas Cupthe world No. 27 is determined to regain his touches. The New Delhi Thomas Cup Finals will be Wei Feng's second Thomas Cup appearance. He was a reserve player two years ago at Wuhan, ranked behind Lee Chong Wei, Liew Daren and Mohd Hafiz Hashim. He was moved up to third singles against Chen Jing from China, following Lee Chong Wei's injury against Denmark. He didn't break a sweat in the Malaysia vs. China game, because China tamed Malaysia 3-0 and didn't have to play the remaining two games.

Wei Feng is going to play a significant role in New Delhi, where he could seal a victory should the team be leading 2-0, or help paving the road for the team to comeback if they are trailing by 2-0 or tie at 1-1.

“This Thomas Cup is very important for me, it could make or break my badminton career. My mind is ready, and I am up for the challenge,” said Wei Feng.

Wei Feng admitted he didn't have a good start of the year, where he was knocked out in the first round in Malaysian Open, Korean Open and Indian Open. He conceded a walkover in the semi-finals of Malaysian Open Grand Prix Gold in Johor in March due to injury.

“I want to do well in New Delhi, and will try my best to secure a point for the team. I really hope we can reach the semi-final”

Malaysia will play South Korea, Germany and India in Group C before semi-final.
