    CTC forced to change his strategy becomes a bit unsure of himself and loses some of his touch.

    Net play not working well, afraid to lift, body smash anticipated, what else to do for CTC ?

    Chou Tien Chen will remember this spanking for a "Long" time.

    As expected CL takes the second and third game comfortably.

    Chen Long is really a smarter player now.

    What a demolition job by Chen Long in game 2 and 3, 21-9 and 21-6, about as devastating as what CTC's compatriot Hsu Jen Hao suffered in his G2, 21-2 earlier !

    No one would want Chen Long in his draw at World Championships.But my crystall ball predicts,LCW will have to deal with this beast very early

    I think if LCW and Lin Dan were here to watch this match and witnessed how Chen Long routed CTC who has been playing above himself round after round, would probably go away with an uneasy feeling.

    Chen Long is indeed a true World Champion, a most worthy world number 1, simply.

    Like it or not, nowadays CL if in normal form, is a beast to beat...

    Congratz to Chen Long for taking the title (and extending his untainted H2H stat), congratz as well to Chou Tien Chen for making it that far to play in the MS final in this de facto five star event, removed the great obstacles like Jan O Jorgensen (WR #2) and the incumbent God, Lin Dan (WR #5).

    Even though Chou TC has not yet prevailed today, he's been successful to grab one game from Chen L with his great opening game before the Dragon overturned the court outcome. In the past all their five encounters were settled in straight. Being the runner-up here Chou's WR position certainly will increase in the next release of WR table.

    The order is regained, the phobic is shunned, what a deafening silence hereafter...:cool:

    Frankly, after seeing how Chen Long played and lost G1, I was telling myself he is back to his bad habit again of letting his opponent set the agenda and bind him down (remember how Son Wan Ho did it to him at the Asian Games and other similar examples), but, no, this time Chen Long proved me wrong - he came back countering his opponent's strategy and turned the tables on him decisively with a masterful display of scintillating,dominant performance.

    In a layman's description... in G1 Chou started the campaign strongly, smashed smashed smashed and Chen returned returned returned, followed the dictate...

    then in G2 it's the Chen's turns to smash smash smash, and Chou returned returned returned...and this situation repeated itself in G3 thus the outcome is as seen... :rolleyes: ;)

    It's straight-forward final in WS and MD with short duration and lopsided matches. Maheswari/Polii extended their head to head against Luo Twins, INA pair rotation and attacking style was better than the Chinese. Positive trend by world #5, hopefully it will boost their confidence towards WC at homesoil next month. Two Korean XD applied pretty much same strategy with big smashes from either Ko SH or Shin BC but the more established Ko/Kim added their GP Gold title collection.

    Last final as expected to deliver more thrilling atmosphere, local hero Chou TC played brilliantly at game 1 with variation of hard smashes and accurate netplay but looked like it drained a lot his energy as game 2 and decider practically he couldn't do too much to cope fast and furious world #1. Fourth individual title for Chen Long in this year after 2 SS Premieres and 1 SS tournament.

    Congrats to all winners, next stop GP Gold will shift to Bangkok on end of September ;)

    Chen Long reminds me of Djokovic.

    that's right... much like:
    Lee Chong Wei = Nadal
    Lin Dan = Federer

    Nadal and Federer have nothing in common with LCW and LD.
    But Djokovic and CL can be compared because of their style of play and attitude.
