Hm... very nice interpretation of LD's different mode, very interesting. But to be honest, they both played one of the most spectacular game ever. Credits to both for such outstanding performance.
Well for LCW you are just unlucky this time, better luck next time.
Personally I think that winning many tournaments gives a better indication of your strength than just winning few so-called "big" tournaments ( NO I'm not a LCW fan).
The most important thing in my mind is to be consistent. LD and LCW have shown the world either in the past or currently that they both are the two most consistent players ever!

In history, Chinese players develops faster and retire earlier. For Malaysians, they develop or mature or gets better as the reach 30. fyi. LD is maintaining his standard. LCW progressed and getting close to him. Still that 1% mental is not there yet.

After last night win by Lin Dan, I am sure he knows Lcw is getting too close.
From now onwards either he put more effort into his preparation for Olympic 12
or he can kiss goodbye to the final.
Similarly we can also kiss goodbye to see the same final match we saw yesterday
How Lin Dan celebrated after he won in the final tells us everything,
that title still matters so much to him

I think LD doesn't like playing many tournaments in a short time. It makes him less fresh. He needs to clear his mind before major tournaments to perform to his best. That's why he has gaps in his game that opponents can exploit when he's not so alert.
LCW on the other hand plays many tournaments to help himself gain confidence, which he is lacking in.

he celebrated that way not because of the title but the fact that he saved 2 match points........

For LCW to beat LD he must not make so many errors. He made so many by not taking the shuttle hoping for easy points.
And more importantly LCW must lead with significant margins, seeing LD also making mistakes, LCW should have capitalised on it and pulled away, but no, LCW follow suits with more errors.
And when it comes to duece, there is nothing for LD to lose, afterall what title hasn't LinDAn got??So win or loss to LD is no big deal.
As for LCW, hell of alot of pressure are building up, surely LCW cant play his normal game, and everything to lose so he lost.

even me, as a LD fan, thought before the final that this could be LCW's year. the way LCW toyed with his opponents from 1st round till semi-final says it all....just imagine the score of 21-5, 21-7 or 21-9 against chen jin or the swift match duration of just 25-30 mins. but more importantly, how LCW showed his maturity with his unbelievable winning shots, impressive stamina, power and speed. every badminton fan was predicting a LCW victory. but LD showed us he is the real "special one" in the final

For LD overcame a lot to win this title:
Injuries/walkovers/shock loss in lead up
LCW had the easiest qtr and semi ever, credit to him he played well but Cordon was gone by the qtr and the former world champion didn't really compete in semi
LD had very hard draw-Lin Dan had the latenight semi and played an inspired Gade who played brilliantly, and Sasaki is a dangerous player and fighter, even Lee Hyun was a potential problem
The hall was definately "slow" this suited LCW more than LD
His own complacency - even LD fans would admit he has been less than motivated since OG, he toys with opponents, tries to entertain, tries different shots and tactics.
