Salam sukan buat peminat sukan Malaysia
Syabas kepada Dato Lee Chong Wei walaupun mengalami kekalahan kepada musuh ketat beliau,Lin Dan di kejohanan terbuka Korea beberapa jam yang lepas.
Hajat Lee Chong Wei yang berada di kedudukan no.1 dunia untuk melakar rekod tiga kali memenangi Super Series sedara berturut lebur setelah tumpas di tangan Lin Dan setelah bermain tiga set,19-21 21-14 16-21.
Permainan sengit ketika berada di set yang ketiga yang banyak di dahulu oleh Lee Chong Wei,namun nasib sekali lagi tidak berpihak kepada beliau sehingga Lin Dan,pemain no.6 dunia dapat memungut mata sedikit demi sedikit sehingga dapat mendahului Lee pada mata 16-16.
Walaupun kalah, penulis mengucapkan tahniah sekali lagi kepada Dato Lee Chong Wei di atas kemenangan ke peringkat akhir.
