I don't think that LD is being hated that much in china. All of the Chinese i know they LOVE LD. He has so good character and always have good patience for the match. I suggest you'd better see the Chinese badminton website(中羽在線),u will know that LD still have a lot of fans in China.
by the way, I am from Taiwan,also a fan of LD~~~

I really sympathise with LCW not because he is my compatriot for the vitriol against him comes most from fellow M'sians but he is constantly had to prove himself vis-a-vis LD. When LD came to the fore in late 2003 and became No.1 by mid 2004 nobody doubted or pour scorn on him as the fake no.1 even though Taufik won the OG. Same thing in 2005. And he was already calledsuper Dan in 2004 by CHN fans. He had to wait till 2006 to win his 1st major. Every badminton fan I know said LD was the wickest and top player in the world before he won the WC in 2006 (except INA fans who looked up to the inconsisten Taufik.).

But the same is not said of LCW. He has proven to be the most consistent player of recent years no other player apart from LD could match his achievements and yet fans make it as though his achievement comes to not if he doesnt have WC in his bag. They dont say the same thing bout PG who have only one AE to boot more than a decade ago and a two runner up position at the majors. PG is viewed more highly then LCW!!!!. If WC is going to be the measure of a badminton top player then Lim S K and Morten Forst were fake number ones for failing to win WCs during their career.

Whatever you say, dude, but he is the G.O.A.T. anyway~~~

....and here I am thinking this thread is about LCW, and more, about the future of the game in Malaysia.

Wached game between LCW and CJ 2008 AE, LCW is really a different player now. LD needs to work harder to get another Olympic gold.

Lin Dan is Hated in China by people who understand they game. The people in China that like LD are the people that don't see Lin Dan for who he is. They don't know about the walkover or anything. They just see "China is #1." That's all they care about. they don't care who. they know his name from all the advertisements.
I'm sure other players on the national team hate LD as well. I'm sure Bao Chunlai would have his thoughts on LD if he was given the chance to speak about them. He is hated on the circuit as well. Taufik hates him, Peter hates him. He doesn't play with respect or sportsmanship. Remember the all England this year? what did Lin Dan say about Marc Zweibler after the Semi - Final Match? Nothing positive about his opponent. no respect what so ever. I think I can remember him saying "I wanted to win in 2 sets." But Zweibler was positive and respectful towards LD. He is rude, unsportsmanlike, and is full of excuses. If he loses "oh, I drank to much cold water" or "I made to many errors." this is why no one likes him. he is cocky. Also the Chinese think he is ugly :P

He is strong mentally, one can't distract him easily but he's always ever ready to distract his opponent,
by certain gesture, his skills and his speed
This is what makes him so great when it comes to crucial points.
All of a certain you can find him coming from behind with a huge burst of energy.
That's his asset and such injection of pace most of the time makes most of his opponent loses confidence .
His team mates may not like him, I think I can imagine
but what can they say? Simply, he is better

Here is what the thread OP wrote in the first post on this thread:
What does Lee Chong Wei need now to enable him to win the 2012 Summer Olympics gold medal?
My concern is more on the rest of the team.
We can't beat Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand & Singapore players lately.
I do not even want to think outside South East Asia.
Have we declined to a level that we have to worry that we can't even win the bronze medal at SEA GAMES?
It hurts to see so many things going wrong although it looks good sometimes.
I always mentioned that we have glimpses of excellence but we are more lost and clueless most of the time.
