Congratulations Datuk Lee Chong Wei!!!! And Datuk Misbun Sidek. Yes, that is one monkey off the back, and only two more to go.
And it is not Chong Wei’s fault that Lin Dan didn’t make it to the final. If Lin Dan decided to dubiously lose to Bao Chunlai, or miss the Malaysian Open, that’s Lin Dan’s problem. Not Chong Wei’s.
So Chong Wei really earned this one. Hopefully he’s not getting it over his head. A real champ has to repeat winning this All England. Salute, anyway.
