Man shaking a$$ > army gestures... hmmm... you must be kidding...
Many teams are better than CY/FHF until Fu can get a better partner in my opinion... not that Cai is not good but just not good enough... or just me have high expectations.
Like I said, CY/FHF, KKK, and all the other young pairs should not be cocky for they are still far away from being GREAT !!! Learn more, play better, win more then you have all the rights to be COCKY if you choose to. Until then, be more humble and it is much better than eating your own words and shooting yourself in the foot.

At top level, these athletes can probably beat each other in competition, and the only distinction then is their mental prowess. Many have already commented on TH's desire to win, which gives him an edge in terms of mental strength. The fact that LD lost those last crucial few points through unforced errors only goes to show his lack of mettle and composure. I've no doubt of his physical abilities though, but think that wasn't enough against another player with skills as good as he is.

Yes maybe some of his gestures during the game are ugly and funny as commented by some ppl. As long as the gestures do not insult the opponents, I think there's nothing wrong with it. In fact, I think some of the China players are really arrogant regardless of their ages and never respect other countries' players.

Wached the whole game finally. First of all, congratulations to Taufik for winning the gold.
Read some postings saying Taufik perfomred superbly in the match, I can not really agree after watching the match. I also watched his matches in Japan Open Final and Chine Open and World cup, I think he might be a little bit better than at that time. But not a lot of improvements for sure. I guess this is really his top form now. He won the match mostly because Lin Dan underperfomed a little bit this time. (Lin Dan will need to figure out why he underperfomed this time in order to make sure he can beat Taufik in future important encounters. too much pressure, mental weakness or what? ) Lin Dan was nervous in the first game, and commited 4 errors after he led 20:17 in the second game. But he was in form during the rest of the second game, Taufik cound not really do much. Lin Dan even beat him at net serveral times, not to mention his trademark smashes which left Taufik no way to retrieve.
Compared with 04 Olympics and 05 World Champions, Taufik misses one of his major weapons now, which is his powerful backcourt smash. When his opponent lifts to the baseline, Taufik can seldom deliver a lethal smash now. If he still has his smash, I would say Lin Dan would not be able to beat him 4 times in 2006 befor losing this one. And I believe Lin Dan will still be able to beat him in future games (so long as Lin Dan play his normal games) if Taufik still can not get his smash back.
howerver, still credit to Taufik given that even without his lethal smash, he could still manager to beat Lin Dan once. Even when he lost, he could still manage to get a game from Lin Dan most of the times.
Overall, Lin Dan is still the best player in the circuit with no doubt. you can not judge a player by one match.

you say Taufik did not perform superbly after beating the best player in the circuit in the men's singles finals? Now I wonder if Taufik performed superbly for you, then Lin Dan should get thrashed...haha...
Lin Dan underperformed in the finals? are you nuts? he's got the whole china nation sitting on his shoulders!!! what was he thinking about? Lee Dong Soo sitting next to xxf? hehe... maybe it was what he did the night before that caused the problem... coz I heard LYB scolded xxf but not sure about it. Ah yeah... xxf also lost in her event in the semi's... maybe there is something there to ponder about...
Lin Dan beat Taufik at the net several times? please count first how many times Taufik beat Lin Dan at the net and count how many times Lin Dan beat Taufik at the net.
Why should Lin Dan be nervous??? he has beaten Taufik numerous times before and been in umpteenth times of finals including wc06... You mean he was more nervous than Taufik??? c'mon dude... I think both equally nervous la.... and both have so much pressure sitting on their shoulders dude....
and I dont think its mental pressure too... he has been in all sorts of pressure cooker situations with LCW...
Please count how many trade mark smashes that Lin Dan made outright winners of against all the smashes he did during the game. I think Taufik retrieved a whole lot of it during the match...
Maybe Taufik had another game plan, which did not include hard smashes as Lin Dan is very good at retrieving those kinds of shots. Instead he changed the pace of the smash everytime he smashed so that everytime Lin Dan return the smash it was something different to deal with.
It is correct to say that Taufik has much less stamina now compared to previously.
To add further and summarize it, Taufik beat Lin Dan at the net and won the soft touch game.
It is correct to say that Lin Dan is the best player in terms of ranking. But in my opinion, passion for the game still goes to Taufik.

Just finish watching the game and wow.. and the way everything was played remind me of Taufik in olympic04, coming in as underdog and winning the entire thing...
He definatly had more patience and played more basic strokes instead of all those wild fancy backhand smash..
And Taufik still has the smash and all to whoever said he doesn't, I think they both played superbly well, and yes I do think LD underestimated TH, thinking he could play his normal game to beat him.. if only LD attacked more like he did the 2nd game he might had the chance to win...
But Taufik definatly had up his defensive play, I love how he retrive majority of LD's smash! just wonderful
