    I'm thinking about doing a little short story on Lin Dan.
    But hey, where's the inspiration?

    I mean, he's a pretty decent badminton player and all.... ahem...
    But that's not enough!
    He's so .... er...... insipid!
    He doesn't rip off his shirt and/or shorts anymore.
    No tantrums. No threats.

    Where's the spice gone, man?? Is this what marriage does to a guy??

    So anyway, if there are some kind and helpful souls here who can give me some nice info on LD's background, I'd really appreciate it. What was he like as a little boy? Any particular stuff? What did he do in the army? What piano did he play on? Who decided he'd be a good player? What did TXH actually DO to him? You know, all that juicy stuff....

    RSVP... Many thanks to all in advance...

    It's ridiculous to term G_d on another human being.

    On another note, last night, both Djokovic and Federer came from the brink of defeats to win and progress to meet each other. What great players. Don't think they are G_ods.

    I am trying to figure out what kwun meant. I guess it is the GOLDEN hair colour.

    Luckily,badminton is not a sport where physical size matters too much,just look at Lin Dan and the two guys, their disparity in size.

    The next thing, BWF may raise the net 1 or 2 feet higher so that the shorter Asians can't smash.

    No, they may take away the net

    with a new rule.

    Body shot penalized 2 points

    These are badminton played during younger days on the road side in front of the gate where slippers are place in between to indicate the net.

    Hmmm, with that idea, instead of the saying 'view from the top', it'll be wider coverage (video camera) from below?

    and still got slippers for net,

    we only use borrowed frying pans as rackets

    and dead frog or bird as shuttle


    Anyway so much of off topic and

    coincidentally it's also an off form for Lin Dan, no?

    Or we have a strong challenger, Sony?

    Cool Lin Dan In A Nutshell


    With explosive power comes explosive personality too. LD's explosiveness (
    爆发力
    ) is not to be compared to only shuttle speed, but the speed of response (reading opponents' shots coming back) and also speed of footwork. The other factor worth mentioning is 'Racquet Efficiency'. The strokes are very short and there is no wasted motion. The racket is high and ready long before the shuttle arrives and the hit is very clean and compact.

    When your swings are generally longer, there are more unnecessary movements and the hits involve more slice, therefore, more times is wasted and opponents have more time to get ready for your returning shots.

    His techniques involves short swings and crisp attacking shots. For the former, it can be understood easily from the simplest of his stroke, the backhand flip service, generating much power to the baseline although the swing is very short, suggesting mastery of powerful wrist. As for the latter, I'm many have witness attacking shots of LD even though the return to him is a parallel jab or a low lift to the baseline.

    However, what LD has modified is originally from the same mastery of the longer strokes technique, but making them shorter and quicker. That's why you see his opponents scrambling to retrieve his shots.

    However LD has an explosive personality as well during his youthful days, not that he is not youthful now, but more mature with stubble and beard and also, married. Back in the days, he used to punch his coach Ji Xinpeng, threatened to hit Li Mao with his racquet. Those were the incidents during the year 2008.
    Now LD has matured nicely and has toned down on those antiques already. Now he requests for LCW's shirt for what might be the duo's last All England 2012, when LCW retired midway due to shoulder injury.

    http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/sports/2008-04/11/content_6610082.htm


    Presently, nearing retirement age, he no longer wastes precious energy smashing like a bomb waiting to explode. He bides his time and skillfully creates opening for attacks.


    By the way, LD has the same height as Yang Yang, 1.76m.

    We should be thankful for both LD and LCW, the Yin and Yang of badminton supremacy of the 20th century.

    If anyone want to beat L D, should follow what Sony did : Save all your energy and target a tournament after a major one. After a major tournament, L D always happy and content and doesn't mind to give away points or victory if you work hard.

    Errr, I don't want to pick a fight about this; but it doesn't provide a very nice reflection on how other players approach thier own game and aspirations.

    It may also give people the impression that Sony actually planned it this way. In fact, Sony is on the comeback trail and needs to plan his itinerary carefully, and the results of his application are showing. It would be really very unfair to him to project a view that he planned to take advantage of LD's "magnanimity" or the scraps he throws the way of other players.
