Not as simple as you have mentioned.
Pictures and videos only show us how things were performed.
But, we also need to get into the players' minds (to know what they were thinking as they were performing).
If we get into LCW's mind (as he jumped up to smash), there are so many options he could do, like;
* Smash as hard as possible (which I call the 'KILL')
* Smash as hard as possible down the line.
* Smash as hard as possible cross-court.
* Smash in a way to expect a certain reply.
* Smash with a bit of slice effect (to deceive/wrong foot his opponent).
* Smash softer so that LCW can have more time to play his next shot.
* etc, etc, ......
The possibilities can be so many. LCW can have an endless list of options.
Therefore, it is not easy to explain (with just words or with just photos/videos).

BTW, at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, why had Lin Dan performed so well against LCW? It's because Tang Xianfu reminded Lin Dan what to expect from the replies from LCW after certain stokes.
How do I know? After knowing Tang Xianfu's philosophy, I can only guess what he had told Lin Dan before the match. And also how he had trained Lin Dan at the 2008 OG (in anticipation for him to face LCW at the Finals).

The Chinese have for sometime now identified LCW's weakness. Hence it will be extremely difficult for LCW to keep up with LD and CL. I am afraid it is only more of a downhill battle.
You will note that whenever LCW plays against these two Chinese players they will attack LCW's forehand deep into the backline. Just look at the speed such shots to the backline are executed by LD and CL. This forces either a net return or a short of a full length clear. If it is a net return LCW will have problems because both CL and LD are much faster at the net than LCW. A less than full length clear to the backline will be met with an aggressive smash. Also LCW almost always loses in any encounter with these two Chinese that involve flat drives/shots.

So many BCers have given up on LCW?
OMG... So many BCers have given up on LCW?
But I have not. Let's find LCW prove me correct.

Looks like some full blown politics in play now huh?

Sometime ago Malaysia's high performance coaching director James Sevarage (?) came near to pointing out the reason why LCW is being increasingly upstaged by China's No. 2 CL, but James did not get it quite right, only partially.
James's suggestion that LCW should counter CL's persistent attacks to LCW's two backline corners was to return crosscourt instead of straight. That is easier said than done, simply for the reason that LCW was never behind those deep shots and was forced to take them on his back foot. LCW's stance when taking a forehand high shot at the backline is both his strength but at the same time a tragic weakness against LD and CL. His strength against other opponents bar CL and LD was his rotational cross court smashes, with his classic stance of facing the side/back in the initial preparation. LCW's recovery from here is slow for him to reach the net. Just compare his stance when dealing with a deep high forehand shot with LD's and you will see why LD can reach the net from the backline so much faster than LCW, to the extent that LD can afford to stay almost a hair's breadth away from the net. You will see LCW a few feet away from the net. In such a situation you are in dire trouble. If you lose control of the net it is a hopeless situation.

Let's expect less games for LCW next year... and maybe more loses. At the time of OG2012 he will be at peak and win the gold this time.
Well I'm just thinking of their strategy... I hope I'm correct...

Hopefully some Malaysian friends can help me(American) understand BAM a little more.
How is the top position(s) i.e. (President/Council) of BAM appointed? How does BAM acquire it's funding? To my understanding clubs like KLRC are not under BAM, what is the dynamic between large Clubs and BAM? What do you think the chances of a top player like LCW becoming one of the leaders of BAM, could he even be effective ... why or why not?

To understand BAM a little more
You might expect that BAM to be an organisation formed in the interest of Badminton. Unfortunately, BAM is formed in the interest of the nation. Read this article for more info;
You could also go to the BAM website to find out the answers to your questions. Read this thread for more info;
