Yes, things have changed a bit at BC
Welcome back wilfredlgf.
Yes, things have changed a bit at BC.
It's good that now BCers are posting our opinions (for sharing and exchanging our thoughts); BC is much better now compared to years ago when BCers would bash one another when we didn't share the same opinions.

BCers, after watching so many matches over the years, has there been an incident that the linesmen's decision was influenced or changed by the player(s) concerned? None, I think,so it's a futile attempt.

It is so obvious that China team has done the "unspeakable" again.
How "coincidental" again that two pairs of players are to meet in semi-finals and before that one pulls out to allow their teammate to have "a good rest on Saturday, so that they can be fresh to play the other finalist on Sunday. For how many tournaments we have seen such scenarios.
I am not convinced that the China players that withdrew from their semi-finals were injured, we have seen many times, the withdrawn player claiming injury on Saturday and come following Tuesday, playing unaffected in new tournament.
Surely something must be done to stop such practices of China team. It was the case for LD and CL, LD withdraw from semi.
Ladies: WYH vs Liu Xin and Liu Xin and Liu Xin withdraw.
Their very actions are spoiling and tarnishing the real essence of sportsmanship.

Only the line judge concerned can tell us if he was influenced or not

A few stars emerges from this event.
1. OF course the Chinese WD, BYX and ZQX. They beat 4 seeded pairs, they save 8 Match Points from QF,SF and final. Just awesome. Another very talented pair that will do well in future.
2. The XD pair CHL/CWH. They are a strong pair but usually they somehow lost in SF or final round. Buthere they prove that they are also had good chance to win gold next year.
3. Chen Long. Apart from any haters saying that he got 1 day rest , LCW just play poorly etc etc. The fact remain is he play two weeks in a row and win two title in a row beating top players. (Except LD) And the bonus side: he is only 22. He will be 23 in next year Olympic, the golden age.
I will not surprise at all, if both LD or LCW will not win the gold next year. Lets face it, they will become older one more year, a curse in any physical sports games. Just ask Taufik and Peter Gade. They got the skill but not the stamina.
Lets wait and see for next year OG Men singles, should be very interesting.

If China do not want their players to face each other at tournaments......
It is silly for China to do that, IMHO.
There are many countries who submitted many entries (of players) in some tournaments (especially in their home tournaments). We don't find many NO-SHOWS (NAKED W/Os) from their players.
At the 2011 Japan Open SS, CHN had (in the Singles events);
* Womens Singles: Only 4 entries.
* Mens Singles: Only 5 entries.
And there was only once in the Womens Singles there was a CHN-vs-CHN match, but it ended as a "No Match".
Again, there was only once in the Mens Singles there was a CHN-vs-CHN match, and again it ended as a "No Match".
If China do not want their players to face each other at tournaments, then they should not send many entries.
Surely, when more participants from a country have entered, their players will have more chances of facing each other.
If I were LYB and wished not to have many matches of CHN-vs-CHN, then I would send not more than 4 entries in each event.
But LYB sent many CHN participants and have often caused some "No Match" that we Badminton fans wish to watch (some good CHN-vs-CHN matches).

“It’s exciting. I didn’t think about anything during the match. I’m younger and he is strong. I was just lucky to win,” Chen Long told the media after winning his first Yonex Open Japan title. Note that Chen Long humbly admitted he was "just lucky to win". Let's see whether Chen Long can do it again in the near future, not necessarily the next time they meet. Even the Malaysian press didn't play down Chen Long's victory as due to Lee Chong-wei's poor form or shoulder injury, for that matter, or attribute it to his having a day's rest from a walkover by Lin Dan. Let's give credit where due though I was also equally disappointed by the walkovers for the men's and women's singles. I rest my case, everybody is entitled to his/her own opinion.

We have to give Chen Long credit for the win against Chong Wei . Chen long has improved ever since his win in the world junior championship .. but in terms of technique and smashes , he is still behind Lin dan .. I agree chen long get the extra rest to win against chong wei .. zhong guo dui jia you... wo ai zhong guo ...

So patriotic ? There are 2 sets of fans. One is an idol worshipper. The other is a country fanatic. Both can be dangerous if it reaches the extreme stage. Let loose a little. Release some tension. Better for the health.

LCW may retire without a world title
I mean Olympics and World cup
I really wish he could retire with a major title. He deserves to have one. However, LCW is facing tough competition.
2012 London Olympics, I still think LD : LCW is 60:40, simply because LD handles big tournament better. Even if LCW can beat LD, now CL is catching up. The thing is in 2012, lcw WILL BE ONE YEAR OLDER. CL is going up, but LCW is going down. Aging is catching up with LCW.
LCW said he's going to participate 2013 world champion, by then he is 2 years older. I think CL will have more age advantage.
Do you believe Federer will win another GS? Djokovic and Nadal will not easily give up, and Federer is getting older each year. Actually it is easier (though not easy) for Federer to win another GS than LCW to win a major title, because there are 4 GS each year, and there is only one major title each year in badminton.
