    Chen Long's victory over Lin Dan in the QFs of the Aussie Open SS, his second after the previous BAC win in end April, didn't go unnoticed in the Chinese newsmedia even though it's only a quarterfinal match. http://sports.qq.com/a/20170624/000509.htm ( I won't be translating as most of what's written are already well-known). Suffice to say the author is stating that Chen Long is proving himself to be CHN MS leading player and a most worthy successor to Lin Dan.

    Incidentally, I've just checked their H2H, it's now 7 - 8 , only one up in favour of Lin Dan but with Chen Long winning four of their last five encounters as pointed out by the author.

    Btw, Chen Long has his many adoring fans clamouring for his autograph, watch the video attached which was taken at the Sudirman Cup last month.

    That H2H is a joke. Walkovers count as a loss. Lin Dan gave plenty of them to CL before London Olympics. Lin Dan leads 9-4 overall including their CBSL match.

    Even so, Chen Long winning four of their last five encounters is truly significant, indisputably.

    There's no denying The GOAT, Lin Dan, is now off his prime as age catches up with him as well as his waning motivation. But on those occasions that matter to him and when he really sets his mind to it, he can and will deliver, I believe. Let's wait for the Glasgow WC.

    Chen Long will take another long break from Badminton and won't return to action before Denmark Open.

    On the evening of 5th September, Chen Long's match was not arranged for center court No.1. That Men's Singles 1/8 match, his opponent was fellow teammate from the national first team and Jiangsu representative Lu Guangzu, is generally regarded as one not likely to cause any surprise.

    In the first set, Chen Long was for a time leading 18-15 and yet lost it 19-21." The first set was quite a pity, maybe it's due to playing the Men's singles right away after the Team event, I couldn't focused my energy well. Especially when you've the chance to win and your opponent put up a very fierce fight. Lu Guangzu, from the get-go in G1 to the end of G2, was playing at a relatively faster pace and comparatively more decisive." In G2, Chen Long was trailing throughout and was stopped 13-21 at the round of 16. "

    Lu Guangzu after emerging victorious was not at all excited. He expressed that Chen Long did not perform to his proper standard, committed too many errors, finally leading to his defeat. " We don't play much in the national team, I have few chances of beating him, even then it's only by 3 or 4 points."

    Chen Long, upon returning from the Glasgow World Championships has to immediately enter fully into the Chinese National Games, admitted to being unable to make the switch between the two events properly and it affected his performance." Those able to participate in the World Championships are also the main strengths of the various provinces." Furthermore, Fujian Team is the defending champion and Chen Long is also its main force. In the earlier team event, Fujian Team progressed all the way to the final for which Chen Long invested a lot of energy. After that, Chen Long rested for a day, and entered the Men's Singles event today (5th Sep), " according to competition schedule, it's already the third event now." Having lost the MS match, Chen Long's quest at the CNG came to an end.

    He indicated he would first take a break and properly treat the injury , a pulled thigh muscle (which he sustained at the AE actually), that he's been carrying since the world championships till now and then participate in the year-end competitions.
