Name changeEdit

Wong Wing Ki was born Wong Shu Ki (黃書棋), but he changed his name when he was 17. "Shu" is homophonous to another word meaning "to lose" in Chinese, and he was told to change it.[1]


Wong Wing Ki was a student at La Salle College. He quit school after Form 3 to concentrate on a badminton career.[2]


2011 Denmark OpenEdit

On 19 October, Wong beat Lee Hyun-il in the first round by 10-21, 21-16 and 21-14,[3] then on 20 October, Wong Wing Ki pulled off the biggest upset of the 2011 Denmark Open when he dumped four-time world champion Lin Dan of China 21-10, 17-21, 21-19 out of the competition and won through into the quarter-finals.[1] Wong was ranked 27th in the world collected at least 5,000 points from the tournament. Hong Kong head coach Tim He Yiming said, "The result will have a great impact on Wong, as he is challenging for a place in next year's Olympic Games."[4] In the third round, Wong Wing Ki lost to Sho Sasaki by 21-15, 15-21 and 7-21.[5]

2012 German OpenEdit

In the 2012 German Open, Wong Wing Ki defeated Sony Dwi Kuncoro to proceed to the last 16. He was then in superb form to claim a 21-9, 21-17, victory against 2010 World Champion Chen Jin, which set up with a quarter-final match with Jan O Jorgensen.[6] Jorgensen ended the giant-killing run of Wong Wing Ki when he defeated the Hong Kong shuttler 21-17, 21-11.[7]

2012 London OlympicsEdit

Wong Wing Ki will be one of eighteen players seeded in the 2012 London Olympics Men's singles tournament. He is currently only ranked 19th but 5 of the top 18 ranked players failed to make it to the Olympics.[8] Wong Wing Ki won through into the knockout stages of the men's singles event after he overcame France's Brice Leverdez 21-11, 21-16 for his second win in a row in the group stage.[9] Wong Wing-ki then crashed out of the last 16. His dreams were ended by third seed Chen Long, 21-17 21-17. The second set was tied seven times, but several of the shuttle's bounces on the net didn't go Wong's way. Wong said he felt his attack from the backcourt was lethal, but he said Chen was a stronger player on the net.[10]
