    Some people says taht it will be with adidas... sooooo.... i guess we can just wait and see. But i think it would be far more interesting that lin dan goes back to yonex so he can have his "legendary players" yonex page. It would be SO GREAT if his special racket was.... the at700

    i think he's more into his family and money, so whatever makes him more money he'll go along, just my guess. i've seen chinese articles hinting that maybe he wanted to be in show business or politics, but that's just hints because of a single picture of him shaking hands with politicians in China. but if he's won everything there is to win as far as tournaments are concerned, well i would do what it seems like he's doing right now, transitioning to another area of interest. i can see him doing movies

    I cannot see LD not aiming for OLY16, 1 more gold and that would beam him up to the galaxy, a record impossible to beat and $$$ pouring in. He can endorse and sell anything.

    Don't kid yourself, this is a game to us and big money to pro players, it is all about money. Now that LD has a family, money talk is even bigger and securing the financial future. LD is a smart cookie, he knows it is badminton that brings in all his good fortune. Without badminton, there will be no LD, no XXF, just another PLA soldier.

    LD is a smart player, he is looking out at his opponents and analysing his chance of winning gold. 2.5 yrs to go to RIO, and who are LD main opponents now? LCW, older than him. Maybe CL.

    For now, the gold waiting in RIO still looks very good. I watched WC13 MSF many times, if LD can play like that taking a year off, I am in total awe. It may not be the greatest performance ever from LD, but given the short preparation and not playing SS, facing an opponent who was in great form, WR1 and totally prepared for WC13, and still beat him, I ranked this match (alongside AE1990 ZJH-JS and OLY08 MSF) as the best ever comeback of all times. The focus, the theatrics, the fire in LD eyes are all still there. It is actually entertaining and quite funny to watch. I am impressed.

    Now, get back to serious training and selective competition, as some said back in Mar, slowly get back into the groove, selectively play enough to get those darn points and maybe play AG, WC and for sure good old here-I-come OLY. Win the last one and LD is done. The rest will be history.

    Bet of LD playing OLY16, LD would kick himself for walking away from OLY when he is still the one to beat

    Does anyone know why Lin Dan's tattoo misses THE in the title "Until the end of world"? The origins of his tattoos are explained here, and the famous line is a reference to the ending theme of a japanese anime series "Slam Dunk", recorded as "Sekai ga owaru made wa" by WANDS in 1994. The correct English translation would include THE, as featured in his own book's title and also in the commercial Intel Tattoo at 1:45. Yet his arm displays "Until the end of world" without THE. Any ideas why it happened?

    Speaking of his tattoos, check out this very recent ad series using LD by Intel re his tattoos, using the tag line "Look Inside" . Very interesting.

    The videos are at the bottom of the page.
