    I guess he's only good enough to win the big events and not the small ones. LOL! But then again, I guess that's not really true because the Grand Old Man of Badminton still hasn't won the WC or OG. And this is who some proclaim is the best player ever, someone who has never been World or Olympic champion!

    Seriously, this peeing all over victories that have been so hard fought for just because the player in question isn't one's favourite helps me to understand why participation on this forum and the audience for badminton is so small.

    To enjoy (earning money) and to give out mercy to the poor badminton audience as there is no more badminton MS super-star after LD's timeout...

    I didn't bother to watch the last match and this happened

    To give LCW credit, he has the tendency to skip non-Yonex tournaments. Given all the no-shows and withdrawals, the old horse did his part for badminton and should be saluted.

    The new Winter break is good idea. But with a more compressed time frame, BWF needs to be very careful with scheduling or we will see more and more tournaments with watered-down fields of participants.

    Congratulation to Simon Santoso, a skillful player won his first ever Super Series all the way from qualification round, what an achievement! As for Lee Chong Wei, it was a good lost, in my opinion, as it proved his B game would not overcome opponent's A game.
    You could tell Simon came with full preparation as his net play always directed to CW back hand side(weak spot?) and won many points. Chong Wei also quite careless about his un-force errors and slow to rectify in adapting Simon's game plan. I also felt his focus playing against players from other nations, besides China, is always kind of lacking?
    We can expect Chong Wei to make a comeback on his next outing, not a concern.

    i also noticed that chongwei quickness has reduced, he use to be able to retrieve any smashes/shots but nowadays seems he cannot retrieve lot of them, he is getting old liaw...

    he won most of his point now through skills instead of pure quickness, when he was younger

    I watched this match again on TV. It was a very high quality match. Tang was a little more stable than Bao. There were some great shots from all players.

    I was disappointed with Bao during the Uber Cup finals when they lost to the deserving Japanese.
