HONG KONG OPEN: Chong Wei to face nemesis Lin Dan in semis

Lee Chong Wei

Lee Chong Wei is headed for an epic battle with Lin Dan in the Hong Kong Open semifinals today.

World No 1 Chong Wei cruised into the men’s singles semi-finals after defeating India‘s Ajay Jayaram  21-16, 21-13.

The Malaysian needed only 31 minutes to beat Ajay, ranked 34th in the world in the RM791,301 tournament.

However,  Chong Wei is braced for a stormy time against Lin Dan, the Olympic champion from China.
    Chong Wei beat Lin Dan in the All England final in April but lost to the latter in the World Championships and Korea Open.

Lin Dan booked his semi-final ticket by beating Shon Wan Ho of South Korea, 21-15, 21-18 in 40 minutes.

World No 2 Chen Long of China beat RMV Gurusaidutt from India, 21-13, 23-21, to reach the semi-finals.

Chen Long will next play compatriot Chen Jin, who subdued Peter Gade of Denmark 21-18, 21-13 in 55 minutes.
