The Maybank Malaysia Open 2014 at Putra Stadium in Kuala Lumpur is set to showcase another chapter in the enduring love story between Men’s Singles No.1 Lee Chong Wei and the Malaysia Open. Lee has dominated the tournament, winning nine out of the last ten editions, including the last six. However, this year’s competition brings a new challenger in second seed Chen Long of China, who recently defeated Lee in the Victor Korea Open finale. Despite the tough road ahead, Lee’s passionate home support gives him a fighting chance at securing his tenth Malaysia Open title.

Tough Matches Ahead

Before reaching the final, Lee must navigate through a series of challenging matches. His first test will be against Denmark’s Hans-Christian Vittinghus, followed by potential matchups against strong contenders such as Wang Zhengming of China, Du Pengyu of China, and Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark. On the other hand, Chen Long is expected to have a smoother path to the final, facing off against qualifiers and players like Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk of Thailand, Kenichi Tago of Japan, and Tommy Sugiarto of Indonesia.

Intense Women’s Singles Competition

The Women’s Singles category presents a competitive field, with many contenders vying to dethrone top seed Li Xuerui of China. Li, who has never won a Malaysia Open crown, will face a tough opening match against Porntip Buranaprasertsuk of Thailand, who has a favorable record against her. Defending champion Tai Tzu Ying of Chinese Taipei poses another significant challenge for Li in the quarter-finals.
