Wang Chen faces a tough task when she takes on world number two Tine Rasmussen in the opening round of the women's singles at the Malaysian Super Series in Kuala Lumpur tomorrow. Hong Kong coach Chan Chi-choi said the 33-year-old, who will retire in March, had shown marked form improvement. 'Wang now plays with no pressure and does very well in training, but unfortunately she has to meet the powerful Danes in the opening stage,' said Chan. Hong Kong's Zhou Mi and Yip Pui-yin, both top hopes, will also compete in Malaysia.
