Badminton: Taufik Admits Will Be Difficult To Overcome Chong Wei

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22 (Bernama) -- Indonesia's top badminton player Taufik Hidayat has admitted that it will be hard for him to overcome Datuk Lee Chong Wei in Sunday's final of the Proton Malaysian Open championship.

The Athen's Olympics men's singles gold medallist said he might be up to the task if he was as fit as his younger days.

"Chong Wei has also raised his performance to a higher level now and what I want is to be as nimble as I was in my heyday to be able to defeat him," he said when approached by reporters after his semifinal match at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil here Saturday.

In their last several meetings, Taufik has only won once against the Malaysian, at the Yonex BWF World Championship in Paris in August last year where he defeated Chong Wei in 15-21 21-11 12-21.

Earlier, he had easily defeated compatriot Simon Santoso 21-15, 21-19 to enter the final.
