    I say, it all depends on how cold the water is in London, this time of year. :D

    I think Lindan has the EXTRA X-factor, extra unpreditable shot.
    After watching Peter vs Lindan game, i think Lindan has modified some of his play.
    It will be hard for LCW.

    I vote Lindan will win this game even though i am a super big fan of LCW.
    Deep down I still hope LCW will outplay himself.

    I think this one is LCW's game to lose. If LCW makes his presence felt early in the match and holds his composure and the lead towards around the time they hit around 17pts in the first game, he's probably going to win the match. If Lin Dan does Super Dan shots at around 17pts and Lee doesn't hold, I think he wins the 1st game and will win it in the rubber.

    I vote for LCW. Because he is Taufik's good friend.

    The draw itself was a harder one, but after CL got kicked out by KC....it becomes easier with only CJ in his way to final...........

    Personally, because this is a precursor to the Olympic Games in 2012, I feel both of them will try their best to win. Lin
    Dan's statement that this World Championships does not matter to him is just a psychological ploy to make Lee Chong
    Wei think that he doesn't care by taking advantage of the success he has had in the past by winning 3 world
    championships. I get the feeling Lin Dan is aware LCW has the ability to win this final and is playing psychological
    before the game starts. The fact that Lin Dan has to represent China and not just himself, this ensures that he cannot

    responsibility to his country and himself to do his best and win it for China. I expect this game to go to 3 sets and may the best man win. Both of them are already the best.

    Even though he has won everything but at least he is still at the top of his game and gunning for a second olympic
    gold, not like Taufik Hidayat who at 30 years old , 4 years younger then Peter Gade thinks just bcoz he has won
    everything except AE he can take it easy. Taufik is the biggest dissappointment for me.

    Having just watched the LD vs PG match, I would most definitely say LD will lose to LCW ... based on LD's form, which is very much like AE 2011's match up.

    Sure he's fast with frequent injection of pace, but many mistakes and unforced errors... especially clearing too long beyond the baseline. Even a few service errors! This just shows his nervousness and perhaps over eagerness to win the point.

    Looks like i'll have to take the above back... lcw v2.0 never showed up today

    couldn't convert 2 match points, and lost the match to an error on ld's 1st match point thereafter

    It was a close game, a 50-50 game. Could have gone either way :D

    LCW gave his 16-13 lead away too easily in the last set. It was a close game and those ones are always won he who keep his nerves better.

    LCW used to be too defensive, now he's too aggressive.

    LD can turn on his rocket at will. Unfortunately, LCW cannot boost his game when he needs to like LD can.

    agree. throughout the whole championships, even at finals, LD also exhibited a lot of unforced errors...

    this is too painful for LCW, this year is probably his best year to win WC... next chance would be 2 years later...
