SHAH ALAM: Shuttler Jan O Jorgensen is relishing the prospect of taking on Lin Dan again at the Celcom Axiata Malaysian Open - just four weeks after losing to the Chinese superstar at the All-England.

The 28-year-old Dane, the world No. 5, will open his men’s singles campaign against Ihsan Maulana Mustofa of Indonesia on Wednesday. Barring an upset, a quarter-final blockbuster between Jorgensen and Lin Dan is on the cards at the Malawati Stadium here on Friday.
