KUALA LUMPUR – National badminton ace Datuk Lee Chong Wei has booked his semi-final berth at the World Superseries Finals in Dubai, United Arab Emirates after leading the Group A.

In the final group stage held at the Hamdan Sports Complex today, Chong Wei lost to South Korea’s Son Wan Ho, 21-13, 20-22, 15-21 in a game that lasted for 75 minutes.

However, the difference in points count was favourable to the world’s second ranked player after the South Korean player lost to Angus Ng Ka Long of Hong Kong, 21-15, 13-21, 21-16.

Chong Wei, 35, redeemed last year’s disappointment when he failed to get past the preliminary round.

For the record, he had won four Super Series Finals, namely in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2013.
