that was just...disappointing....CWF just practically gave up...he looked as if he achieved his target and had no aspiration to go one step further...CL was good...but CWF could've been much much better
Totally agree with you! It was a downright disappointing performance from CWF.
Yes, Chen Long is a very tough opponent. However, for someone who can beat higher ranked players like Vittinghus, Sho Sasaki in straight games, surely he can play better than this!?
He appeared more like Chen Long's sparring partner than a semi finalist at a SSP.
CWF started the game well, but he seems to lose the mental strength when he failed to break through Chen Long's play. From then on, everything went downhill and it became a one-sided China affair.
Hopefully CWF can learn from this experience and build up his mental strength/skills if he wants to be a world-class player.
