Thank you very much for the information. That make sense now.
Of course the above is just my mere speculation. If this is the final of Olympic/All England/ World Championship, I don't think LHI will forfeit the match to LCW today. Just my 2 cents.

I take my hats off to Lee Hyun Ill for clawing his way up the world ranking from 200+ to below 20 following his stellar performance in the 2011 Wilson Swiss Badminton Open.
He retired following the 2008 Olympics and made his come-back in 2010 following persuasion by the Korean National Badminton Academy. This former world number one had to play the qualifying rounds in many tournaments to enable him to compete in the main draws and yet he went through the process diligently. How many players would do that except perhaps for a few and I doubt you can include any Mas player there. If LHI had not retired, he could have won a few more titles, super series and gold prix. He may win a few GP titles in his come-back but it is doubtful he could win any SS title but who knows?

looks like he is more reliable player than psh and will qualify for 2012 OG to pursuit a medal

I salute LHI for reaching the final of the 2011 SCG Thailand GP Open tournament MS final match.
This is his 2nd final in a GP tournament, the 1st being the Swiss Open.
Despite his loss in the 2 tournaments, it was definitely a splendid come-back from his 2nd retirement.
Through it all, he had to play qualifying matches and he is now well-ranked to play in the main draws of any tournament.
I think LHI can beat players like TH, PHG, CJ, S Sasaki, KT, PSH and BCL but it it would be difficult against fast players like LD, CL and LCW. But who knows for sure?

It is good to see the soft-paw, Lee Hyun Il, in the winning way again, with his capture of the MS title at the 2011 Kumpoo Macau Open. In the process, he beat TH who was 3rd seeded and whose form has taken a dive lately.
LHI has so far reached 3 finals in GP tournaments in 2011, these being the aforesaid, the Swiss and the SCG Thai Opens. It is hoped that he will do well in the Victor Korea GP tournament from 6th to 11th December. The only worry is that he could be over-stretched and may not as fresh as opponents like Chen Jin.
LHI is still Korea's number 1 MS player and one has to salute him for his persevernce to reach that spot despite his age and return from retirement. It is hoped that he will be fit for the next 9 months to ensure his place in the Korean team for the 2012 OG.

LHI has done it again reaching his 4th GP tournament final by beating CJ seeded 1 in the MSSF of the 2011 Victor Korea GP tournament 21-17, 13-21, 21-18 in 1 hour and 20 minutes.
It is hoped that he does well in the final where he takes on his compatriot, Wan Ho Shon, and if he wins, his ranking should move up considerably.

Who agrees with me that LHI has the most EFFORTLESS backhand stroke in the MS game? his clear technique is a dream...
generally speaking, he is one of the most aesthetically pleasing players to watch - his strokes and light footwork are gorgeous!

I was impressed by the way he played against LCW in the semi-final. His defensive movement and shot making was amazing, especially knowing the speed and quality of LCW's attack. Hope he continues to tightening up his game and put more pressure on LCW and LD in the future.

Anybody else think LHI has a better physique than he had before his retirement? I remember he used to have calves typical of a doubles player, but it seems like he's gotten leaner.
