    I really don't know how to describe...
    It was a slow game. My first though was also: I can follow and observe how they play. It also allows you think how you would / could do shots like them since they really have let a lot time past between every point.
    Whatever...

    What speaks for a fixed match:
    Overall slow match
    not very tiring shots
    only few rallys
    almost no shouting
    a lot of (fake) face expressions by Chen Long
    no reaction / hiding face with looking down after match win by Lin Dan

    What doesn't speak for a fixed match:
    Chen Long is / was a lot better in form than Lin Dan
    WC is an individual competition, so it doesn't matter who joins the final.
    Both would be capable to beat LCW.
    Chen Long would get a lot of experience boost if he joins the final, so it's better to let him to win.

    Well, what do you believe? My personal opinion is that the match was fixed. But I'd say I'm only 60% sure *lol*

    You remember when LYB said that he hopes Chen Long will succeed in the WC? Maybe this was just to fool all fans and let all think that the match will be a serious one.

    It wasn't a walk over, no injury, the second game was closer and I wouldn't say it was boring so by the process of elimination i don't see how anybody can complain. :)
