    I believe it will be Lin Dan.
    Best consistency and constantly very good dealing with the pressure as he always does.
    Other may win (eg LCW) but only with a very very high motivation moment and with few or no errors otherwise loses the moral and sinks agains LD.

    My ideal scenario: LCW will meet LD in the final and give a worthy fight. LCW will most likely lose due to his deteriorating stamina, previous injuries, etc. However, when he plays well, he is spectacular.

    CL may also jump in and steal the show .. :)

    At this moment LCW is smashing Parupalli and will likely reach de SF.
    I was hopping that Parupalli would be The Surprise in this tournament, because the way he played against TM Nguyen was fantastic and lethal.
    CL is ahead of PGade at this moment (2nd set and won the 1st) and probably will win this one.
    I dont believe CL will beat LCW at the semis ... but surprises may happen.

    This is it, the first acid test for LCW against CL. No more excuses, no more mind games. Injured or not, the moment of truth, now or maybe never for LCW Olympic gold dreams. LCW, follow your heart, live your dreams, first of two incredible matches. Stay focus and overcome tremendous pressure and you'll see the light at the end of the tunnel. That light will be coming from the spark of the Olympic gold medal for Men's Single champion of the 2012 London Olympic Games.

    Wow, I'm impressed by how many cliches you managed to cram into that paragraph. ;)

    Seriously, I am looking forward to the LCW v CL encounter. CL looks very strong (physically) but then, he hasn't played a player of LCW's calibre yet. LCW's ankle seems to be holding up well. It's the rust he needs to get rid of.

    Considering how Chen Long took LCW to a close 3 sets in their last encounter at Malaysia Open, he has a pretty good chance of beating him...

    Yes Chen Long is looking good for the gold... but it could go to 3 sets vs LCW and LCW doesn't give up easily. That would make it more interesting to watch.

    Despite the injury, LCW will give the challenge
