KUALA LUMPUR: National men's singles star Lee Chong Wei is likely to take on reigning world and Olympic champion Chen Long of China in the quarter-finals of the World Championships in Glasgow, Scotland this month.

This follows the draw ceremony at the Badminton World Federation (BWF) office here at Naza Tower on today.

The Malaysian second seed opens his campaign in the opening round against France's Brice Leverdez.

Other top players who are slated to take on the Malaysian shuttler are China's Tian Houwei (third round) and Denmark's Viktor Axelsen (semi-finals).

A showdown with nemesis and five-time world champion Lin Dan of China is only possible if both players reach the final.
