Lee Zii Jia has promised to bring the same 'winning feeling' from his Thailand Open success to the Malaysia Masters this week.

The Malaysian was on-fire throughout the past week to clinch his event of the year after a straight game 21-11, 21-10 victory over Angus Ng Ka Long in Sunday's final.
His success has also indirectly elevated the interest of the Malaysia Masters, where Lee is set to command huge interest and support from the local faithful.

"Yesterday (Sunday) was one of my best performance this year, which I have been trying to find for some time. I hope to keep the same momentum and feeling when I play at home next week," he told broadcaster SPOTV.

Lee, seeded fifth at the Malaysia Masters, will face China's Zhao Jun Peng in the opening round.

Despite the absence of several key players, the men's singles field is still stacked with plenty of quality with top seed Viktor Axelsen, his national team-mate and second seed Anders Antonsen and Li Shi Feng in action among others.

Leong Jun Hao is the other Malaysian in the men's singles main draw and is scheduled to take on another Chinese shuttler Lei Lan Xi.
