    ..perhaps...
    Or perhaps it was KT's lack of pace & more lifts/clears in the game which allowed WZM to deliver those thundering smashes..I thought KT looked 1/2 a step a bit slow and was the one reacting instead of dictating the pace..Or maybe he's just not familiar with WZM's game, yet (first meeting between the 2)??..
    On the other hand, i'm not sure how much "faster" WZM can scoot around the court..If it's of any use, perhaps his result vs. LinDan in the BAC Final is an indication??..:confused:

    I watched the final, overall LD's skills were better at rallying and controlling the game forcing WZM to more errors. But WZM at the beginning of the game and in some parts of G2 was able to out rally LD with spectacular stroke play in terms of netplay and extremely powerful smashes, but in between those he played a lot of mediocre shots and gifted a lot of points.

    I think he looks a lot better bet than CL, who really seems slower from the video against PG in the swiss open.

    ^^Okay..^^

    ..(will watch his match vs. LD if i have time)..
    From your description, WZM definitely still has more learning to do/higher competition hrs to accrue..and like a lot of you guys already mentioned, we'll see how he progresses in the next couple or so yrs & see if he will indeed become "the next super king"..

    Terrifyingly powerful smash, good netplay. Also uses his height well to get into net to set him up for the kill. Think he's a bit languid/ slow.

    Tago was poor against Wang here, and IMO, his good run at the AE was mostly courtesy of an injurEd CJ, BCL (bcl was also a bundle of nerves as was LCW in the final). I don't think Tago is truly world class - I rank him with Nguyen Tien Minh as players you wouldn't want to meet on their good days, but limited technically.

    Wang - Most like BCL, who is also capable of the same kind of play. For a set, BCL kicked Tago's arse the same way. It's really difficult to tell how good he can be at this stage. A lot will come down to handling the pressure when he's an established Top 5 (he has the ability unquestionably). At the very top, its who handles the pressure. CJ is such a limited player but is more successful than BCL, BCL has a good badminton brain, but doesn't cope with pressure. Lin Dan, is the master because he has a good balance of head and heart, and has dominated LCW who is very self pressured (but I believe LCW has comparable ability.) BCL was the better player than Lin Dan in the juniors, but his injuries also have prevented him getting and keeping the physical level of Lin Dan.

    My prediction: WZM will win a lot of tournaments and has some X-factor. He'll win a major title and have a short spell at World no 1, but he'll be injury prone and have a relatively short career because his play style is power and because he's slightly built. like BCL. It's impossible to say how well he'll maximise his gifts because, IMO, this is not a pressure situation, but rather just his time to shine and take a few scalps. And, other players haven't started to train and prepare specifically with him in mind. Misbun once said about specifically targeting training for countering the games of the top 10 to be a champion.

    Yah definitely worth checking out...
    Still shows LD is playing at another level IMO... no need to smash a lot, he just waits patiently for WZM to get outplayed in rallies.

    watch back when in 06 Chen Jin still had attack power without his back injury

    And when Taufik was quite fit....
    CJ around the head was good and had good drives
    A shame he became a cyborg

    Yup, for me before CJ picked up (what I think is) a Chronic back injury he used to take control of the rally and had great pace.

    Now, he is passive, reactionary and just does enough to win, and loses sometimes as a result of this (if that makes any sense:confused:)

    That's nonsense. BCL's smashes (>270km/h) are the fastest during this AE. So you are saying everyone, including LD, plays like woman nowadays? :D:D
