Thread: why did LD lose?
12-09-2006, 12:41 PM #18
Eventhough Ia m Indonesian...I have to say that LD has a slightly advantage or better than TH ( age, stamina, speed,deception shot) but tonight TH was so confident after winning first set and TH would not let it go on 2nd set...LD was too anxious to get to 3rd set...it is ironic that Chinese did not win any Gold for women/men/double....

I am glad that I predicted right this time. I said the first game is the key.

My take even before I watched the match..Originally Posted by CheungOriginally Posted by DoublesPlayer
Looking at how it ended, it looks like Taufik was in control "most" of the time, eventhough he trailed late in the 2nd set..Clinching 5 straight points is even remarkable..
And as i suspected, I thought Taufik's bread and butter, the netplay, was the difference and i wasn't surprised at all he used for his victory..
My personal feeling, i think this title is probably the "sweetest" one for Taufik, esp. after what he had gone thru this whole yr, with so many turmoils and ups and downs(in personal life as well as professionally as an athlete), and now ending on a positive note. Not only that, but i believe this is the only *major title* that Taufik has defended back to back..

Let's better wait and see the upcoming events. Hope we can see many encounters of these two unique guys to see if your theory still applies

Remember that LD always beat TH in 3 sets and TH beat mostly in 2 sets if I am not wrong....

Actually I was laughing reading below 'funny' post stating such scenario. But then after MS final, then this scenario could happened again, but different actors. Maybe we can give some credits to LHI for his 'wisdom' in his match against LD in SF where LD completely dominated him. LHI must have figured instead facing 'determined' TH in the final then it's better for him to let LD win and face TH in the final, and with such huge confidence after easy victory (with lots of reserved tank), I can't believe that it turned out differently in the final for LD. He looked like no confidence in that match, maybe he has forgotten that he has 5-0 record this year over TH prior to that match (2-0 in the past 2 weeks), also he kept looking at his coach every time he made (unforced) errors, seems like asking for direction or strategy. or could it be because LD was frustated that he couldn't unleash his 'reserved' tank during that match?
hopefully with this defeat, he will come back strongly again next year like what he did when he fell in OG and WC2005.
