I'd rate injury as a smaller factor in his lost. It may be one of them. The others may be either lost of confidence, inconsistency and maybe him not being too used to the new scoring system. I'm not a huge fan of his, more of LDs but i know his standard and that was c**p he played compared to past games . Was hoping LD would win 'slightly' over him(for a great match)..not steamroll him straight over.
I agree wit the fashion statement above though. Im glad they're at least trying to change around though. Better than staying constant.

Even when playing at 60 % Taufik was able to outfox and make LD look silly
in the 1st set, imagine the outcome if TH was fully fit.
I am no TH supporter but LD should work on his racquet skills,
They are far below those of Sun Jun or all the China greats of the 80s.
I think Chen Jin will make a better all round player.

yes... I am agree with above.Originally Posted by Wong8Egg
You can tell someone is a good badminton player, if he win alot of tournament "see from reality"
Lin Dan is one example. Although not always win, but he won alot of tournaments compare other badminton player. Doesnt matter big or small.
Only in Olympic 2004 was his disaster. Die in 2nd Round against Ronald Susilo. Beside that maybe lost in Semi Final or Final
No player have such good badminton career like him.
Any comment ?

Quite surprised to see that Taufik has no muscle definition. Quite surprised.
Maybe this shirt design will force the badminton players to train their muscles. I believe better muscles do help your game, especially todays fast attacking game. No bulky muscles of course, but ripped muscle definition like those of Lin Dan's 6 pack or even better, like Bruce Lee's. That'll draw the crowd.
Hey, I like Zhang Ning's outfit. The skirt she wears sure allows us a good view of her lovely legs.
