Victor Korea Open Super Series Finals – Super Dan vs Chong Wei

January 30, 2011

The battle of the titans begin this year when Lee Chon Wei takes on Lin Dan in the mens singles finals.. There have been a few tournaments where Lin Dan pulled out at the last minute to avoid playing Chong Wei (Malaysian Open).

This time around, they meet in the finals where the winner will take home USD 90 grand.

Chong Wei easily defeated Du Pengyu of China 21-10, 21-10 in 34 minutes in the semi-finals Saturday.

In the other semi-final, Lin Dan, the Bejing Olympics men’s singles gold medallist, had a tougher time against Simon Santoso of Indonesia before winning 23-21, 20-22, 21-15.

Lin Dan wasnt playing his best in the Semi’s against Simon and I think that was a tactic by Lin Dan to conserve his skills n energy for the finals. From what I see, Lee Chong Wei looks very fit and he has improved so much in the last couple of months in confidence. I think Lee Chong Wei will take this game.. What do you think, Malaysia Boleh?

FYI, Lin Dan has won 17 of the 24 games he has played with Chong Wei.
