Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei beats Jan O Jorgensen to win 2016 Japan Open title

Malaysian shuttler Lee Chong Wei defeated Jan O Jorgensen to clinch his sixth Japan Open title on Sunday.

Lee Chong Wei won his sixth Japan Open title after beating Jan O Jorgensen in a tense final in Tokyo on 25 September.

The Malaysian shuttler edged past Jorgensen 21-18, 15-21, 21-16 in an hour and ten minutes.

Jorgensen came up with a spirited effort in the opening game saving two game points before going down. In the second, Chong Wei was made to sweat by the Danish shuttler as he took four consecutive points and clinched the game to force a decider.

Chong Wei kept the pressure on his opponent in the third game. Jorgensen, whose only victory against the top seed came in the opening round of the 2009 Japan Open, missed out on a lot opportunities to stun the Malaysian despite taking five consecutive points in the decider.

Having won the semi-final clash against Germany's Marc Zwiebler in straight games, the Malaysian stood strong to ward off a tough fight from Jorgenson in the final match.

Tokyo has proved to be a happy hunting ground for Chong Wei since he tasted success in the 2007 edition. He worked his way through to his 44th Superseries title on Sunday.

Banking on a possible change in the scoring system, the 33-year-old hinted he might consider playing at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Notably, Chong Wei won his third Olympic Men's singles badminton silver medal at the Rio Olympics beating arch-rival Lin Dan en route to the gold medal match, in which he went down against Chinese shuttler Chen Long.
