    LD is getting beefy too. I wonder if he has ever been tested for drugs;)

    Drug testing is mandatory at the Olympic Games.
    And he's had this physique for a long time now ;)

    Fit may not equal to muscle mass.

    How about..

    ..Kenneth Jonassen, Peter Gade, Joachim Persson in comparison to LCW??..i'm sure the former 3 are probably more "studly" looking than LCW..Yet, LCW probably has better records against them..;)

    I think between LD vs. LCW, it all boils down to LD, himself. If he wants it, he can and will get it done. Time to look fw to the WC in August for another round between these 2 players..:cool:

    The problem is LD has the firepower, explosiveness, and overall stroke deception which can penetrate LCW's defenses, unlike KJ, PG, and JP. LCW really lacks the power in his smash, and also the explosiveness to get himself into an offensive position (notice how LD's smashes almost come out of nowhere and LCW isn't prepared to block them, but LD is always ready when LCW wants to do a smash).

    well, at such high level, it's all about mental and energy management. Thx god that the NSS to 21 still allow game tactical and not all about 100% dash to the finish line.

    problem is, when lcw lost, some say misbun was there (OG), and won when misbun wasn't there (09 Swiss open). Maybe it's seasonal dependent too

    i have said before, LD is generous, he would allow his lesser opponents some breathing room. Only time he wasn't generous was the 08 OG

    Of course, no doubt bout that. My concern is for Lin dan. Cooler? Generosity is best described you. ~
