World number one Lee Chong Wei already announced he would skip the French Open even before the start of Denmark Open early last week.

With a total prize money of 275,000 U.S. dollars, the 2014 French Open features defending champion Jorgensen in the men’s singles, top three women’s singles players Li Xuerui, Wang Shixian and Wang Yihan from China, as well as the reigning women’s singles world champion Carolina Marin of Spain.
