Malaysian superstar Lee Chong Wei advanced to the final of the Victor Far East Malaysia Masters on Saturday.
The former world number one defeated Indonesian hopeful Tommy Sugiarto 21-19, 21-15 at the Stadium Spice in Penang.
In the opening game, the third seed was in control with a 11-7 lead. But Chong Wei clawed himself back with an impressive eight point run.
Sugiarto battled back to level matters at 19-all, but again Chong Wei was too good in the clutch moments.
The world number five then turned on the class in the second game, running out to a 13-9 lead and never looking back.
In the other men’s singles semi-final, Malaysia Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin continued his dream run when he knocked out second seed Srikanth Kidambi 27-25, 21-9.
The opening game was a tense affair with the lead changing hands several times towards the end of the game.
After Zainuddin edged the Indian star in a cliffhanger , a deflated Srikanth capitulated in the second game.
Should Chong Wei go on to win on Sunday, it would be his 61st international title.
