Lee stuns Chen at All England Championship
London: Malaysia’s Lee Zii Jia savoured a “revenge” victory over Chen Long as the world number 13 moved into the All England badminton Championship semi-finals on Friday.
Lee stunned the Chinese two-time champion 21-12, 21-18 to end the number three seed’s hopes of a memorable third title in Birmingham.
Chen, the champion in 2013 and 2015, had previously beaten six-time All England champion Lin Dan 21-17, 21-8 to progress into the quarter-finals. But he was no match for Lee who was motivated to avenge the result the last time the two met at the Denmark Open in October. – AFP
