His loss has served a good lesson to him and the rest of the Chinese. I am pretty sure most of them would try to avoid getting jinxed. Still it doesn't mean they shouldn't play badly on purpose to give away the titles, they will somehow try their best. It is great if they win it , to fans who are overly concerned about the jinx will have to start worrying then because as a hardcore CHN fan, i look forward to the Olympics. All england can be re-captured in the following years. It isn't going anywhere.
Lee Chong Wei will win it easily, his mental strength has magnified since his "undeserved" victory over Tago. He no longer treats All England as a major tournament difficult to win so it's going to be hard to beat him with such mindset.
I will say for CHN to use this tournament to really pinpoint and identify the players that would become their silent threat or dark horses in London. Players they never face before for instance Carolyn Marin, hey that girl is pretty good, they havent played against her yet, Kevin Cordon, and several others . We and CHN will find out who they should pay attention to when they kick off their preparations for OG

Christina Pedersen and Kamillia Rytter-Juhl.
Other pairs who can sort of trouble them are Ha-Kim, Kakiiwa-Fujii, Suetsuna-Maeda..though they always lose..

We'll just have to wait and see. I think some people over estimate the whole Jinx thing. Sure, they have a bad record in AE-OG, but that doesn't mean that there is suddenly a jinx. Superstition ... .
What I do get is that the pressure is higher when winning the AE and then going to the OG. It is definitely something to take into account, but a Jinx? Nah. It is only yet again another test for the mental fitness. If you win the AE, people will immediately count on you and the feedback will murder you when you lose early.
If LYB gives in to the whole Jinx thing and, for some reason, orders all his top players to WO, they better give the steering wheel to a panda.

Quantifier 1 could possibly be Viktor Axelsen (29) DE 18yr; playing Kenichi Tago (8) JPN 22yr, be a good battle, Viktor has beat THidayat and pushed PGade to 3 sets, could this be a potential upset for Tago? Viktor is improving all the time, I think both are real contenders for next Olympics 2016 and future top 5 players in the world..

I think he should try his best to qualify, it would be good preparation for his Rio 2016 as soon as he peaks. So Dannish badminton must not always focus on Gade's agenda only, he will surely qualify but what about their plans for Rio ?

Don't think he will be able to qualify this year 15,000 points of 2nd Denmark player to qualify J.Orgonsen.. But I do see him taking a medal in Rio, should be a good match between Tago and Viktor

Who the hell are you to say deserved or not?! You(s) are simply not good enough like many of you here in the forum to pass judgement. Be professional when you do post, make it count! Go get a life, i hope you(s) have a life other than posting necessary comments only to discredit yourself!

Had Tago won the second set, there's a likelihood he will go on to win because Lee Chong Wei at that time doesn't have what it takes to be a world beater, only a SS winner. But hey, the call made him took the title, a win is a win. Kudos to him but terrible for Tago because he literally got away with murder.
That game was the turning point as to what has transpired today? I dare you to answer this !
If Lee Chong Wei lost that day to Tago, he would produce the same form today. I can courageously tell you in the face. NO!
Hey i am entitled to my own opinion and some BCers are right..I am Team CHN fan but anti-LYB ..It's a pity we have to play dirty to win but get this right, Lin Dan never played dirty in the all england and world championship. He won them fair and square without any help. instead he helped others by giving away his titles.

And No Lin Dan never relied on any footsoldier to win all the World Championships and Asian Games
Fact 1 presented:
WC 2006: Lin Dan fought like a bi tch against Chen Hong in the semis, and then Bao Chunlai in the final...It wouldnt make any sense if all these are orchestrated just to let Lin Dan lift the crown. It was an all Chinese final, LYB by no means has no right to decide who takes the title or not. Lin Dan won this far and square. For those who accused Lin Dan of winning because Taufik and Lee Chong Wei were absent, too bad....they just lost in the early round. sulk it up. I could say Taufik's 2004 OG was fluke as well if that's the case because he didnt face any Chinese players but I wont do so
Back to Lin Dan
WC 2007: Taufik crashed out against Anup Sridhar (in form) who pulled the biggest upset of the tournament. Lee Chong Wei played like an idiot against Sony and received the biggest humiliation of his life. What was Lin Dan doing again ? He beat Anup Sridhar and Sony to win the title, the players that spoiled the favourites' hope. Where did the foul play happen ?
WC 2009 : Lin Dan did not face any Chinese until the final. He beat Peter Gade, and oh wait, guess who ? IT'S SONY again who gave Lee Chong Wei a second slap in the face and then faced Chen Jin in the final. PLEASE where do you get the idea that Chen Jin could stand a chance against Lin Dan ? Unless he got his leg cut off. Again another well deserved victory by Lin Dan
WC2011 and Asiad 2010: I dont recall Lin Dan facing any chinese opponents. So yea, whoever claimed he dont deserve to win this title can just stfu.
The above proves how credible Lin Dan is as a legend. Enough said

Anyway LCW lost the Olympics and came back stronger. I really wonder why some think his mind is so fragile, you dont enter the finals of 11 consecutive tournaments with this kind of handicap.
