    I think Lin Dan really just lacks confidence right now. In 2004 he was really confident, and a confident LD == winning LD. Then the whole Olympic incident happened, and he doesn't seem as sure of himself as he used to be. I'm pretty sure the pressure the Chinese coaches are putting on him to win big tournaments isn't helping either.

    To be honest, I very much miss the old LD that walked 20 circles around the court after every point, took off his shirt and screamed after a good victory, and did his crazy salutes all around. I don't know if you guys remember, but I think during his Thomas Cup match against Gade he went up for a jump smash and almost tripped over himself when he landed because he just put all his strength in it knowing that it would win him the point. That's the LD that win tournaments. You just don't see him with that kind of attitude anymore.

    I think he's no longer as spastic and sporadic like that anymore because he's getting older and more mature.

    Doing all those crazy things takes energy and energy is finite.

    obviously he has professionals to do that for him, but that was just my opinion on his weaknesses.
    it may be sarcasm
