after defeat lcw in india open
and lindan in china
will he beat th?
io runner up.
..see you in L.A., Taufik..
waiting for others response
I predict taufik to win this one
i say chen long
CL is no more a unknown now........everybody know him,...so everybody are more aware when playing against him, so its more difficault to create upset anymore.......
I think TH will be able to beat CL.......
Its a tough one to call.. I think taufik is a "smarter" more experienced player, and I would put down my money on him as a favourite in this match. I think Taufik can adjust his tactics better and "read" CL better than CL can "read" Taufik.
However as it is the first rounf if things starts going bad for taufik in the beginning, I think he could get "lazy" and throw the game..(blaming the effect of last weeeks intensive play )
I'll put my PAW money on Taufik over Chen Long. His experience will see him through.
CL is a giant killer. and hey, why not? i'd like to see how far can this lad go.
Good luck. I wish i will be there to watch. Still working on it.
chen long will win..
Never seen CL's games, but if his standard of play is at least about CJ's, then TH should not be a hurdle for him...
If this is the first time they meet each other, I am sure CL will have the advantage as TH does not understand well how CL plays. Remember in last year China Open, TH lost to DPY (a chinese youngster). That was their first time meeting each other too
Hidayat T. has lost a bit of his "magic " but it doesnt mean he'll lost to Chen L...
If Th played like he did during Ina Ss,there's still a possibility for CL to beat him
I think they played in asia badminton championships in 07... with TH winning in 3 sets.
errr... checked he actually lost to LCW
Lee Chong Wei  bt Chen Long 21-10,21-8; '
Yeah if he has come thiis far , I wish him the best of luck and will be supporting him!
I think this will be an incredible match!
Yes, but TH has to be the favourite (if motivation etc is there).. I regard both Sony, Boonsak (in form) & Gade as better than CL (today), all beaten by TH in IO.. But CL of course improves
I don't know..... saw the way he played against Bao in ABC and I must say I was impressed. But his lost to Hafiz in the India Open definately shows his inexperience. He hold the advantage but let it slip away.
Taufik may have just edge out Gade twice recently but that was because he was motivated to push further than usual (prestige All England and his own country title). If it was something like ..........ahem Malaysia GP, I think Gade would have won.
Chen Long's recent matches..
..for those interested, here are his 2 recent matches during this yr's BAC & India Open:
Hmm...never see CL played before, dunno about his playing style.
But i choose TH will beat CL
