If Lin Dan wants to smash, the 2008 Olympics final shows an aggressive, fast paced, and attacking Lin Dan. Again, you can see the fast paced and agressive Lin dan at the 2010 Thomas Cup match against LCW. Today's Lin Dan was a defensive and rally Lin Dan and his pace seemed to be slower. Lin Dan started to show some aggression and increase in pace in the 2nd set, but it was cut short when LCW withdrew.IMO, Lin Dan is hiding his true potential. Lin Dan has an extra gear that he is not willing to show to LCW, unless it is an event that Lin Dan really wants to win. I don't even know if Lin Dan will use that gear if he meets LCW at the Thomas Cup, because Malaysia is so weak this year, China would probably win even if they lose their first men's singles match. Sadly, Lin Dan can beat all of his opponents, including LCW, by net shots alone. Lin Dan is the best player in the world at the net and IMO, Lin Dan's superior net game allows him to play at a slower pace and allows him to play less agressively from the backcourt.This was probably the most unenthusiastic that Lin Dan has been after an All England win. I don't know if Lin Dan was unenthusiastic because this is his 4th time winning All England, or because LCW was injured. His celebration didn't even look genuine and I really think he was playing the part in front of cameras. We've seen Lin Dan really celebrate before - the 2008 Olympics, the 2010 Thomas Cup, last year's World Cup, etc. I think Lin Dan is looking ahead at the Olympics, and as prestigious as the All England should have been, it's his 4th time winning it and of course, the big trophy this year is at the Olympics.
    Ya man, respect to LD. I remember back when not long ago posters were condemning Lin on his bad net play. He has improved a lot and proved to be a hard worker. He deserved the alocades. Congrats to both.

    Lol and more cheapshots and swipes at Chinese players. Some fans can't be classy even if they try to. Typical.

    Arrow If LCW participates in this coming 2012 OG, I am afraid it doesn't make any sense

    .
    Many people (including me) have said that LCW shouldn't participate in this 2012 Olympic Games.
