WONG Choong Hann's days as a top shuttler are over but the veteran is confident of making the final of the season-ending Copenhagen Masters which begins today.

Choong Hann is in Group B with local favourite Peter Gade Christensen of Denmark and the latter's compatriot Joachim Persson and recent results favour the Malaysian.

Christensen would be the biggest threat for Choong Hann but the Malaysian, having won their last two meetings, will fancy his chances.
PETER GADE CHRISTENSEN
Choong Hann defeated Christensen in the China Open last month and in the Super Series Masters Finals in Kota Kinabalu last week.

Christensen also looked a spent force at the end of the Super Series Masters Finals where he finished runner-up to Lee Chong Wei.
In fact, he said his main intentions in the Copenhagen Masters are to enjoy the tournament and spend some time with his family.

Choong Hann opens his campaign against the inconsistent Persson today and victory will give him the edge when he plays Christensen tomorrow.

Choong Hann, who won the title in 2003, is likely to meet Indonesian Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia in the final.

Sony is another player who struggled in the Super Series Masters Finals and all this may work in Choong Hann's favour. Kenneth Jonassen

In the men's doubles, world junior champions Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang will be playing in their last tournament together but it will not be an easy outing.

Hee Chun-Kok Siang play Koen Ridder-Ruud Bosch of the Netherlands and Denmark's Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen in Group B tomorrow.

The BA of Malaysia (BAM) should have, since they are being split, considered another pair but Hee Chun and Kok Siang should learn from the experience before starting afresh with Tan Wee Kiong and Lutfi Zaim Khalid respectively.
