Top womens’ pair, Vivian Hoo/ Woon Khe Wei and Lee Chong Wei were the only two survivors to make it to the second round of the Yonex Denmark Open Superseries in Odense. Vivian/ Khe Wei were too strong for Heather Olver/ Lauren Smith of England while Lee Chong Wei had no problem overcoming his Indian opponent, P. Kasyap.
The former world number one will next play Wei Nan of Hong Kong and he is expected to progress to the quarter-finals where one of his toughest challenge awaits him, Chen Long of China. The duo last played against each other during the finals of the World Championships back in August where the Chinese had the upper hand against Chong Wei. It will be tough but a win will surely boost his confidence in the upcoming tournaments.
