Thank you is Taufik's way of saying goodbye as his sporting career (as a player) unwinds. I don't see the value of AG exceeding that of WC (but yes, biennial is the way it should be) by any measure . Nonetheless, coming from a Taufik fan, I feel that LD and LCW will be at their peaks come AG time. If only Taufik would do one more AE and bring it home...FINALLY!
All in all, well done Taufik! Keep smiling, keep the goodbyes and (electronic) missives till the very end...
And to all who's faith is strong but needed proof, a WC finals is proof enough at any stage of a career, much more in the winter of their career!

One more note:
0-14 (and counting?) for TH vs. CHN's top players in the last 3+ yrs, after his loss vs. CJ...I'd say he should be thanking his lucky stars he didn't have to face LD or BCL or CJ before this yr's WC Finals..

TH fan here.. not jealous of LD's achievements. Any reason why I should be? LD's a great player (perhaps the best to date). Being a fan doesn't mean one need to talk down or deny the merits of other players. In LD vs TH, TH hardly have a chance. LD's too fast and varies his game plan too well as long as he keeps his nerves. At this point, there are very few players who can unnerve LD.
I enjoyed seeing TH battle it out with LD in Thomas Cup 2010. LD was faster and played better in practically every way, trashed TH in the first set but TH tried to push back in the 2nd set. That's what I enjoy most about TH. Of course, I certainly hope he'd win some tournaments.
There is this lady who goes to every Singapore Open to support everyone who's not from China. She's the extreme but its a sign of more a hater than a fan.

& Finally... congrats to TH for making the WC finals. Great performance all around in particular in the match with LCW. CJ played a fantastic match so no shame there beaten by a super on-form CJ.

not a taufik hater and you don't care if he wins or lost wc
why you still take the initiative to go back and dig all taufik losses h2h with the chinese players?
and you also wanted us to believe taufik should thank his lucky star he didn't face lin dan/bcl or chen jin earlier?
i really don't know what message you are trying to get across

For someone who is not a fan, ctcjad sure posts a lot in this fan thread. LOL.
I don't think TH has anything to prove. His career speaks for itself. It may not be as impressive as LD, but getting gold in Olympics, AG and WC already says a lot of what a great athlete he is. And for someone who's being written off so many times by the media and naysayers to reach the final of WC, showed that TH still has the heart to compete.

Why LD won't allow that to happen?..check out "Lin Dan" thread and see my last reply on that thread..
Btw, that 7-0 start for CJ must've probably felt like it was the same 1st game between LD vs. TH in the recent Thomas Cup Final..except, this time, it was CJ doing the honor rather than LD..

I think I have wasted enough bandwidth trying to understand "what if Chris is an XX fan" scenarios about your possible psychological state. My apologies for misinterpreting that when you say "If you were a TH fan". You obviously really only meant to speak for yourself.
Back to Taufik, shall we?

Taufik is a very talented player. Extremely natural with his wrist work. He could have win more tournaments if there are less injury and delays his engagement.
