This is an internet forum, members are from different
countries with different culture backgrounds. Any event can
be viewed many different ways, halt-empty or half-full, therefore an opinion can always be biased. We just need to agree to disagree,
And we all have options to read. ignore, or read and ignore.
I enjoy reading most posts if time allowed...

Let me disclose my view on lcw. Misbun and rashid need to train lcw's mental smartness, not footfook. LCW keep losing to LD because he is playing reaction badminton. He has no specific goal to his shots or any shots geared specifically to weaken LD where as LD has tactically shots keep controlling lcw which force lcw to play reactive badminton shots.
On TH, TH has the on court smartness but lack the stamina to fulfill his plan.
The only MS player right now who has the complete set of skills is LD.

I think Ted means LCW has smoother footwork...while LD has more rough-looking but efficient footwork, considering how he can suddenly increase pace and move as fast as LCW.
I dont' LD's that talented at all, but he is extremely hard working. The way his game has matured since 2004 is simply crazy....he started off as a one dimensional player into an intelligent player who can find open spots extremely fast and change pace by himself. LCW....can go fast but makes mistakes and doesn't dictate pace enough.

I'll say that he is very talented, but others like LCW and Taufik are more so. However, Taufik is not motivated, bad fitness, he's coasting. LCW has bad mental toughness. LD comes out on top because he works hard, learns fast, and in the end becomes the best player and thus wins all of the tournaments, major titles, etc.

Somewhat footwork related, I am amazed by LD's ability to
'fish' dive to reach for a shuttle cock and bounce right
back up to resume playing. Many players do 'fish' dive, but
the ability to bounce right back up requires strong legs and
knees support. I doubt LCW will do that in his future matches
sine his knee was injured...

Let's try not let this get out of hand, a couple of posts now I've seen people saying "You're wrong", don't forget that this is a forum and different opinions should be considered and respected. If you disagree with someone simply make your point known rather than blatently say someone is wrong please.

But I would agree your last point about Lin Dan , I also wanted to add that LD is an extremely intelligent player on the court , has good reflexes, and smooth footwork !

However, I agree with your statement about footwork as being most important aspect in single matches , along with physical and mental fitness.

LCW's mental toughness...I'll just let his 2006, 2007, 2009 WC failures explain themselves....he was WR # 1 during 2006 and 2009 too. And the OG final...I admit that LD was inhuman and insane that time, but I also think that LCW gave up too soon.
Let me finally clarify that I like all 3 players...just that I you can't ignore their failures when trying to explain who is "ideally best"
