    It's true. I neglected to add that scouting works both ways. WZM must also add layers to his game in case Tago has figured out his primary strategy. I have no doubt the CHN coaches are spying on this conversation and noting our world class analysis intently, haha ;):D

    Erm... he's 20 (according to Wikipedia). You don't expect him to be winning tournaments left, right and centre as a teenager do you :rolleyes:?

    Nahhh..... they already overcome such obstacle, namely Chen Yu. If smashing is all that matters, MAS would have ruled the world with Tan Boon Heong.

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but ZMW will probably end up being some second stringer.

    More like flash in a pan for me. When CL beat an ill LCW in IO09, he became the jia you fanatic proclaimed future World Champion........ and they say MAS fan tend to "over celebrate"...... rrright. Now, nobody even talks about CL anymore after a series of blunder.

    I'm relax as usual.. as u said.. i dont think he need to be very good looking

    So, it doesn't matter whether he's good looking or not.. the most important this is he can play badminton.. and the talent for sure:D

    Tago tried many of the things he had success with against LCW in the AE final. Tight net play especially. But LCW read him well was superior in almost all departments. There is still a gulf between LD/LCW and the rest
