Chen Jin, Lin Dan, Taufik talking about HK open
Reporters asked the same question "What's your chance at this HK open" to Chen Jin, Lin Dan and Taufik. They have totally different answers:
Chen Jin said, he's coming for the title. If he can play like in the training past weeks, he should be able to get the title. Which statement implied that he can defeat anyone in the Chinese team!
Lin Dan said, he would use this HK open only as an exercise for the WC, he said, get ready for the WC is more important than this HK open title. It seems that LD is not that ready, and so stays back to aim something long distance.
Taufik said, HK open was also unimportant. As the WC held once a year, he would treat WC as an ordinary tournament too, which means that WC is unimportant either. What he's trying to win is the Asian Games because this is not once a year. It seems TH aims something even much further than LD.

hahahahaa! very funny the way they answer, i think taufik himself know he isnt ready to defend his title in WC, while lin dan wants to most...

i think it's a shame that they made the WC an annual event. it should be every 4 years, in between olympic years so that it'll have an added value to it. imagine if the world cup was played every year ... pointless!

Obviously Chen Jin is well prepared and not afraid of losing hence made such a statement. Taufik basically knows he can't win in HK and WC 2006 so might as well degrade this two events. WC is not as pretigious as it use to just because it's an annual event? To me, the most meaningful title is from the event where all the best players are participated, bar none!!! As for Lin Dan, he feels the pressure and not sure he can withstand hence try to be humble, I am sure he's also very well prepare and I actually bet on Lin Dan to win the Hong Kong Open again.
I am sure if LCW were ask the same question then he would have answer : "I am here to win"

Yep..WC is not that important at all since Candra/Tony is not there - they are the best! Why so many rules for WC if it is an open championship. Badminton fans need to see the best vs the best.

well, its always the winner that counts, regardless of TH/LD/PG/etc says how valuable a tournament is

All talk is no use.. the fact is that they also want to win HKO title.. they are trying to be modest. At least Chen Jin say he wants to win. Weather the tourney is important or not , it is not an issue.

I think of what they want to address this time (esp TH) pointing to the inconsistency of the IBF regulation such as changing of the prestigious WC into the annual event, rally scoring and so on. Here the badminton fans actually should take big concern of what had happened and we are also forced to find the way again from the beginning as for how to enjoy the new IBF badminton style. At some points I feel that the art of badminton has been lost.
