I think many players have been watching LD and can read his moves to a certain extent, that's why most of his smashes were returned easily
by LCW.LD's fitness is still OK but I think it is natural for many reflexes to be slightly slower and easier to read.
Perhaps he could take a tip from Hendrawan who even at an advanced age could out-manouevre his opponents by deception in overheads and disguise.

From the statistics LCW always seem to beat LD over 2 sets (except maybe in Korea) and probably in tournaments when LD
was most jaded.I think LD simply has to be at his best to excel unlike the consistent LCW who can perform well tournament after tournament,
nowadays he needs 3 sets to overwhelm his opponents.Like some say,LD does not win 2 tournaments in a row and it is telling!
Previously he could blast his opponents off court but now he can only outlast them over 3 sets.
That is not to belittle LCW or LD, it says something of their physical and mental condition.I think LD can still adapt his playing style
his mind may still be set on emphasizing on his speed, fitness and power which may be waning.
LCW however is still in good condition and has yet to resort to changing his playing style, his advantage in defence and speed
of footwork to get behind the shuttle leaves him with many options especially in overheads.
The CTC has got it right by insisting that LCW focuses on the biggies this year.
Of course the sadists and meanies in BC will want LD to play every tournament so that he can be humiliated
but that will deprive folks from seeing really good matches from Masters at their best, not when they are most vulnerable.
