" The top seed will have to beat the winner between China's Chen Long and Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto before he nets his first world title."
Copenhagen, Aug 30 - Malaysian World No.1 Lee Chong Wei secured his seat in the final of the World Badminton Championships after beating local shuttler Viktor Axelsen in straight games in the semi-final here Saturday.

Lee, geared up to clinch his first world title as his long-time rival Lin Dan of China is not playing in the tournament, achieved a one-sided 21-9, 21-7 men's singles victory at the Ballerup Super Arena before an audience of over 3,000 people, reports Xinhua.

The top seed will have to beat the winner between China's Chen Long and Indonesia's Tommy Sugiarto before he nets his first world title.

Lee said it would be a tough game if he meets Chen Long in the final. He said he would try his best adding that his injuries were not a matter of concern.
