Unlike you however, I don't hate either one (your preference is just so unmistakable) so my opinions are all from a neutral perspective, unlike your tunnel-vision which you just showed over there.

LD is now like a robot man. He is not interested to win or lose. He like to prove when it is at endanger time and he is more pround to win a crucial match of which is facing a great one or when he is at a trail battle which he is from behind to win.
He is more like an artist now. The match depend on his mood or his selection.

agree with those who say LD just doesn't bring the same focus and concentration from the first point to last., when it comes to non-major tournaments.
therefore, for him to lose, he needs to not concentrate fully on every point, and his opponent has to play a blinder. and it happens, but not THAT often.
People forget how many times LD had to win the rubber set to beat far lower ranked players.

hahaha... CL just proved that Chn 'may' not need LD....CL very commanding just now.

Does it mean that Chen Long is stronger than Lin Dan now?
Chen Long's playing more consistent and he can win against Lee Chong Wei in 2 sets instead of 3 sets whenever Lin Dan wins against Lee Chong Wei in recent matches.

From current situation, we might say that CL might be one of the best successor of LD for continuing CH Domination in Badminton.
However from the last 2 encounters between LCW & CL, i think it is still questionable for CL to beat current world's 1 in 2 sets in the next encounters between them.
From what i observe, & many fellows here has also pointed on LCW unforced error amount which is quite a lot.
CL had gained many points from straight forehand smash to LCW forehand defense.
In addition, LCW lost a point in the first set due to flat drive. Yet in the second set, although LCW managed to learn something from his error in the first set, CL managed to send LCW into the wrong direction again.
In 2011 JO, LCW become slower after 3-4 rallies, & in Denmark Open i saw an improvement, but it is just not enough to defeat a rising CL.
Our Dato needs to get back to his shape soon.....

LD is a proven and safer bet. CL is a wild card playing the Joker thing. CJ is certainly the spoiler or nail in the coffin for LCW.

It was commentated by GC, that in 2011 up to the 2011 Yonex French Badminton Open Tournament, Lin Dan withdrew 6 times from his matches out of 11 tournaments he played in.
Chen Long, however, benefitted from 7 withdrawals by his compatriots and others from Round 2 to the SF stage and he went on to win 2 of the tournaments from the 'gifted' withdrwals and they are the Japan and Denmark Opens
Rashid Sidek was especially bewildered by the latest YFBO withdrawal by WZM which clearly was to unseat LCW which thankfully failed.

Chen Jin is certainly nail in the coffin for LCW? I think you are also a joker.
If LD is a safe bet, why is he hiding? I wonder how many times LD can hide away. His withdrawal is insane and an insult to the sport and fans around the world.

He could have beaten KT in the SF match of the 2011 Yonex French Badminton Open with 1 game up and 3 points from victory in the 2nd game. However, the hard-fought games (23-21, 18-15) must have taken its toll and he was probably too tired to face LCW in the final and get thrashed.
