    Maybe my initial expectations were wrong because I wasn't aware of LD's new style of play, but it seemed quite slow and heavy to me. I suppose they were both pretty tired at that stage.

    He relies too much on his backhand. Too many rallies where he gets the lift, big smash (always crosscourt from the around-the-head position....too predictable), then a straight netshort. LD then lifts crosscourt back to Taufik's backhand....and Taufik has to do a backhand drop, giving up the attack.

    Hidayat's main qualities are his backhand (as he is perhaps most famous for his backhand smash, revered for its unusually high generation of power) forehand jump smash, drop shot (reverse slice in particular), smooth footwork and deceiving net play. Hidayat's forehand jump smash in the 2006 world championships is currently the fastest smash recorded in single's competition. He recorded a 305 kph smash in a match against Ng Wei.

    Taufik played really well in the thomas cup, nice to see him try a little for once lol.. however, ran out of steam against the mighty lin dan! dont know why people ever doubted him after the 2 ss disappointments.
    However, after watching the thomas cup.. it is inevitable now that TH is past his best whilst LD is getting better if anything.
    would love to see the old TH come back though. Fav Player

    True true... big contrast in styles tbh.
    lin dan has loads of stamina, change of pace and power (jump smash)
    Taufik had a good eye for the game, easy hitting action and unstoppable net play
    would have been a nice match to watch.
    i love watching both of these players tbh... but Taufik just edges it for me in terms of enjoying to watch.

    i think taufik is more like federer and lindan like nadal...

    skills vs speed...

    in the end I think Lindan will win..

    Both taufik & lindan has very strong mental strength.

    A peak LD should able to beat a peak TH in 2 games.
