World number one Lee Chong Wei trounced Indonesia's Sony Dwi Kuncoro 21-7, 21-8 to win a record nine Malaysia Badminton Open singles title on Sunday.
Lee dominated the court with flawless net play, strokes and lethal smashes and has now set his eyes on victory at the March All-England Superseries Premier.
The Malaysian has won his home country event every year since 2004, apart from in 2007 when victory went to Denmark's Peter Gade.
The 30-year-old Lee was in top form, outfoxing three-time Asian champion Kuncoro time and again at the net.
The energetic Lee dominated his opponent from the start, sending the 29-year-old bronze medallist in the 2004 Athens Olympics scurrying to all four corners of the court.
