The misfortune chronology continues in the history of Malaysia badminton since 1992.
A lot of effort have been put into LEE CHONG WEI.
In fact, all effort are put and focus on him.
Lee Chong Wei entered semi-final at the 2005 edition of BWF World Badminton Championship.
After that, there have been 5 consecutive years of performances no better than quarter-finals.
Datuk Misbun Sidek & Teh Seu Bock has put a lot of time and effort to groom Lee Chong Wei into a player that he is today.
But, it is still not enough to beat Lin Dan.
Lin Dan has the tendency of winning important titles when it matters most.
The first is 2008 Olympics.
The second is 2010 Asian Games.
The third is 2011 Korean Open which is the first Super Series Premier tournament.
The latest is the just concluded men's singles final at the BWF World Badminton Championships.
He wants to show the world that he is still the supreme icon of the world badminton although he is married now.
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.
I am sorry that I have to mention the situation in such a way.
I am sorry that my comments have annoyed and angered some of you.
I feel sad and bad for our players when they do not have the answer on how to overcome regional opponents.
Heart wrenched and the agony of defeat are my feelings at the moment.
There is no joy watching China supremacy.
There is no joy watching Thailand, Taiwan, India, Hong Kong, Singapore and Germany or even Russia putting so many effort in producing more players that can give jitters to the rest of the world.
Let me have some joy and let me shed the tears of victory for our Malaysian players PLEASE!!!
Ohhhhhhh.........it is so painful........

I feel so bad for LCW. I really thought he deserved to win this title.

Can't you take pride in having the no.2 player? The Malaysian attitude is a big reason players can't perform when it matters

The All England 2011 win Chong Wei had against Lin Dan is still a respectable achievement, at a considerably major event. It is not as if Chong Wei is a total wash out against Lin Dan.

I think lcw had everything going for him, best possible draw, slow hall, had the early semi, won first close set, yet still it was Lin who dared to attack and try things and make mistakes but eventually win.

I think Lin can be fitter and sharper back to Beijing form. I dont know if lcw can play more aggressive

"To labour you have the right, not to the fruits thereof" Bhagavad Gita
I have gone through the heart wrenching years of 82 World cup, 96 OG, 97W champ, 2003 Champ dissappointments. Each could not have been more heart breaking than the rest. LCW lost inn this WC is the worst heart beaking thing for me , Never in our badminton history had such a hero who is so committed , train so hard, so humble in his apporach so eager to learn , never give up a fight. LCW threw everthing he could muster to go for the finish line stroke by stroke point by point. If you doubt his mental frailties, this match showed he had conquered that too. In the end it is LD who won.
Then my feeling werent so bad when I remembered these words from the Bhagavad Gita. You have the right to performed your duty, worked hard at it the fruits are not yours to take. It is destiny that LD is the MASTER of the modern game.

no worries la
LCW is still a 2 time AE champion, so at least he has some Major titles to his name, and deservedly so!

What if there was no LD, LCW would have won every majors many times. What if there is no LD and LCW, Taufik and PG would have won every MS titles for past 15 years. What if .....
Same as Federer. What if there was no Nadal, he would have won over 20 grand slams already.

If Lin had not played in the 2 majors where he beat lcw, lcw would have played someone else in final and MAY have won, that is all
