KUALA LUMPUR: Lee Chong Wei defeated Japan's Kenichi Tago 21-6, 21-13 in just 36 minutes to win the Maybank Malaysia Open badminton championships crown Sunday.


The win was the World No. 1 shuttler's eighth home title.


 Spurred on by a vociferous home crowd, Chong Wei was simply in smashing form as he easily took the first game 21-6 in just 13 minutes.


 In the second game, a shell-shocked Tago provided stiffer resistance but Chong Wei was not to be denied and ended the match at 21-13 with a jumping smash that sent the Japanese player sprawling.


 With the win, the 29-year-old Chong Wei has now equalled Wong Peng Soon's record of eight home Open titles.
