Kuala Lumpur: World No. 1 men’s singles Lee Chong Wei, who won his fourth All England title last Sunday, has looked in immaculate form again after suffering a Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) injury on his left knee early February.
He displayed battling qualities in a straight-set All England final win over Shi Yuqi of China in 45 minutes, showing more than enough form to suggest he can add another Malaysia Open men’s singles crown to his already bulging trophy cabinet.
Lee received grand welcome from family, friends and fans on his arrival at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) from London on Tuesday.
“Winning the All England has motivated me to keep playing and keep winning. I’m focused in on defending the Malaysian Open title for the 12th time, and will also try to win the India Open,” said Lee.
The World No. 1 also revealed that his knee injury has yet to heal completely, and it might take a while to feel 100 percent.
“I will follow the training program designed by my coaches for the next two weeks in preparation for the Malaysia Open,” added Lee.
Despite never winning the World Championships, Lee was determined to win that world title that had eluded him so far in his stellar career.
“The pressure will be on me to win the World Championship, I must learn how to deal with the pressure of expectation in Glasgow,” said Lee.
