If that match was the best of LD, I don't think he can better that as LD is 4 years older this time around, but fortunately for him, the opposition is not that much better and the nearest rival LCW is also 4 years older as well. Just my thoughts on seeing that OLY08 MSF so many times.

Its a two way traffic with one controlling and the other performing.
It's hard to explain this coach and player relationship thing here
but I am sure most of the time when the thing is around (that would be txf, otb)
most of you would be able to see a different Lin Dan.
He plays like he has two minds and he likes every moment of it.
So satisfied so sure and full of confidence.

LCW arguably had the best season of his career and you're telling me that the competition hasn't improved. WoW???

When it comes to the technical component, I would say LD's fitness (includes stamina), speed, defense, anticipation, power/accurate attack rank far higher than his technical game, and those attributes have made LD a very successful player. Someone in BC once said, LD in the third game has just warmed up and goes to turbo drive, and most players are dead by then.
I am not saying LD technical game sucks, it is just that TH/LCW is better. LD's defense (I think LD pioneered the diving defense which LCW copied), consistency, attack with precision, fitness/stamina (that is why he is called SuperDan), and the toughest arsenal for anyone to learn that is anticipation (it is a gift), are second to none.
In OLY08, LCW was LD's obstacle. 4 years later, LCW is still LD main obstacle/competition representing the rest of the world. So where are the rest of the competition unless if you count CL who is from CHN and most probably will be in LCW half, and LCW may not even get to the final.
OLY in the past has highly charged competition, this coming OLY12 besides LCW and CL, who else to challenge LD, the competition is weaker and Datuk is also 4 years older too?

Like I said pre Olympics, I would say TH was probably the best technical player, but LD is the player to emulate at the moment. I personally have never seen LCW as a technical player, I've seen him as fast player, who is able to steal time away from his opponent to ultimately cause errors or a bad reply.

His netting is still bad. His smashes also going out a lot. Need to swing faster and earlier to keep the shuttle sharper.
He is taking too much risk by aiming at the line. Too 'little' margin of error.

I'm a nontechnical casual baddy player and mostly just observe. I'm dumbfounded by this claim as well pbmMalaysia. If lcw is not technical player then what has he been showing us thus far? Not badminton? Circus trick? *faint*

Aahhh, a poster you said? Well then, not gonna be upset no more... I know how unreliable those are... Yup, I love watching his deceptive shots. Always managed to make me go agog... gonna go watch the 16 round match now and enjoy observing LCW's technical abilities that some said were just mere speed *pfft*

To all the LCW fans, where is LCW "technically" better than LD. It's definitely not at the net! It's definitely not his smash or drives! It's not footwork or clears! At best LCW is a push on some of these items and at worst he is far behind( net, smash, clear). Most of LCW recent deceptive shots have being performed by LD and TH for years now.
I'm not saying LCW doesn't have good shots, but they aren't astounding and I rarely see his shots completely fool opponent or have them on the wrong foot. LD accomplish this a few times every dozen points.
All the best players have/(or at least should have) perfect basics, so when I think of technical ability it is to add the extra creativity of disguise, pace, touch. I see this a lot of this in LD's game and I see a more basic game in LCW.
You can be upset or "speechless", but you haven't even giving me a definition or any reason other than you can't believe someone could say this about LCW. To me the original comment of LD not being a technical player is just as laughable, but at least I give you reasons why and not just say "I can't believe it, LD Jia You".
