Malaysians will remember Chen Long as the player who defeated Datuk Lee Chong Wei for the gold medal in 2016. Zii Jia told The Star that he is looking forward to his fifth duel with Chen Long.

“I can’t wait to play him tomorrow, I’m quite curious to see how he will play after his long absence from competition prior to the Olympics.”

Zii Jia added that he’s looking forward to a lengthy battle with Chen Long especially considering this is their fifth duel together, the last being the quarter-finals at the All-England Open 16 months ago.
