    Since Lin Dan defeated LCW in this year's Sudirman cup match in the exact same scoreline as the match he lost to LCW in this year's Swiss open, this thread is a MUST, in respond to this thread here
    http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67571

    Here is the proper analysis:
    For the great analyst we are, we saw it coming. It had to happen once Lin Dan settles his game and plays patiently.

    LCW has never been and never will be invincible. Lin Dan is now ready to live up to his world best player status.

    ..I didn't watch the match & it's not the same scoreline but it seems like whenever it's do or die, when it matters most, LD always finds a way to take everything in a business style...While LCW seems to wilt..
    ..dude, LinDan might look like Arnold Schwarzenegger come the World Championships in August..:cool:

    Exactly. I feel like .. "c'mon Lee Chong Wei" In this game, the only moment we can see LCW to match LD is when this LD got stressful. ( be it the line judges etc) .
    A'ha. To add on, don't ever made it look as the end the battle, Chong Wei. Show some badminton spirit to us.

    Once again, Lee Chong Wei has faltered when playing on the big stage.
    Is he destined to win only at the fairground, and never at the arena? :eek:

    this is so unfair. both played brilliant badminton most of the time. the only difference was LD had engaged another gear at critical moments which is his hallmark. LCW is the only player that can push LD and match him some of the time. just imagine if not for LCW, MS will be so dull and boring. LCW is still one of the best.

    Of course he is one of the best, In fact, i think he is just second to Lin Dan.
    We just need to agree that Lin Dan had whitewashed him today, in this game.

    Of course he can win over lin Dan, like what happened in Swiss, but it is unlikely to happen again if he couldn't handle criticisms and come back stronger. And he need to remember that 27 millions people stand still, behind him.

    i think whitewashed is a bit too strong.

    only LCW is able to engage LD in this game of chess. only the two of them have such fast and precise court coverage and shot variation. they together can push the quality of the rallies up one notch in the tactical and psychological level.

    not even Taufik is able to do that. Taufik game is much more simple, net net jumpsmash jumpsmash.

    LCW lost, as Alan mentioned, because he was not able to make decisive point at decisive time counts. LD can. LD at 16 or so point decides that enough is enough, step up a gear and went home with it. LCW have no response and kept wondering why LD isn't playing the same chess game anymore. when he figured out it was well beyond 21 points already.

    so credit should go to both players, but more so to LD.

    Er, Lee Chong Wei would do better NOT to remember the 27 million.
    Else, he will also be thinking about the 1,330 million behind Lin Dan :p

    The irony is that Chong Wei played the game exactly as Sidek wants him to.
    "Wait, wait, wait until Lin Dan runs out of patience and makes a mistake."

    Unfortunately, it's Chong Wei who ended up with more mistakes.

    Aw, come on -- Taufik does much more than that :p

    Tonight LD was more patient and persistent at the net, and LCW was missing some of his accuracy at both the net and the sideline.

    At the times when LD lost his patience momentarily (during 2nd game just before interval), LCW came back but it seemed like LCW was only happy to draw level but not to regain the initiative. Some shot decisions when he was holding the advantage during the rally was off the mark and allowed LD to recover.

    what is that non-sense about white wash, if you are going to win in a best of 3 match, it will be either 2-0 or 2-1. what is the big deal? a proper white wash will be 21-0, 21-0 that i cant see it happen for the NSS.

    I would not say its a whitewash.. the score didnt shows that. But I would say what LCW is at Lin Dan's mercy. Today Lin Dan played well. LCW lost touch. Maybe Misbun is not there.
