Badminton: I AM THE MASTER!

World No. 1 Malaysian player Lee Chong Wei proved once again that he is currently the best player in the world and truly a master of the game when he trounced Peter Gade 21-11, 21-7 in a one sided final at the Indonesian Open.

Gade simply had no answer to Chong Wei's perfect attacking game, as sharp cross court and sideline smashes whizzed past him.

Chong Wei was almost merciless as he took the final from Gade in less than 40 minutes.

A dejected Gade said: "I could do nothing more against him today. With his variation of shots and his speed, I just had no answer. Chong Wei was just too good for me..."

"Rarely you see Peter give up on the court. But today it was a rare occasion to see him doing so. I have so much respect for him as a fighter on the court. He never gives up whatever the score," said a happy Chong Wei.

This is Chong Wei's 6th title for 2011, having played in seven finals. 

With the World Championships just around the corner, surely the Malaysian is the odds-on favorite to become world champ for the first time.

 Will the pressure get to Chong Wei as it did in the past? All badminton fans around the world will wait with bated breath!
