    Not that bad lah, LCW semi still can, medal, depends on the draw. Medal for Msia, this time around, I think will be from other sports like diving, track cycling.

    Hard to say really, in olympics top athletes will perform exceedingly good or it could be won by unknowns.

    When will we see this again?

    Another close rivalry between two 'giant' gladiators here in the Hong Kong Open 2005 as I happen to flip through my album today.

    Perhaps in London Olympics 2012?

    But LCW has been beset by many unfortunate events and he is without his favourite coach Li Mao.

    LD, on the other hand, seems hard to be motivated, except by LCW.

    Hhm.. I think the 'incentives' are the least of LCW's worries right now.

    Though intriguing and plausible, I also remember sometime ago where during an interview LCW was asked what happens when they bump into each other (during the time they were allegedly separated), LCW answered that WMC just walked the other way as if he did not existed. Remember also the time when WMC publicly confirmed they were no longer an item. All these to play a 'pretend' separation? Still it could be true, but a tad too much for me just to get the media off their backs.

    Default Use backhand service is overrated

    I feel the use of backhand service is overrated in men's singles. Yes I agree that one of the greatest advantage of backhand service is that the racket head is much faster to be ready for the return shot.

    I feel LCW should incorporate and interchange the backhand and forehand service into his game, thereby giving variation and slight advantage over your opponents reading your boring and predictable backhand service. Yes I agree the backhand flip service to the baseline is very effective, but how often? The key point here is 'variation' and 'interchange'.

    Continuous use of either style is ineffective also.

    Default Let the mind games begin

    Lee's Beijing experience vital in mental war with Lin

    by Dan Guen Chin
    04:46 AM Jul 19, 2012



    SINGAPORE - One of the most enduring images of the 2008 Beijing Olympics was Malaysian badminton star Lee Chong Wei looking crushed after his lopsided loss to China's Lin Dan in the men's singles final.

    Lee entered the final carrying his country's hopes of a first Olympic gold in badminton.

    But he was a bundle of nerves before the clash. He slept poorly the night before, and had even lost his appetite. He eventually was beaten 21-12, 21-8 by Lin, and ended up making a tearful public apology.

    Lin and Lee, as the No 1 and 2 seeds, respectively, are tipped to meet again in the final at the London Games.

    Since Beijing, Lee has beaten Lin four times in nine tournaments. Their last encounter was at this year's All-England final when Lee retired from a shoulder injury while down a game and trailing 2-6 in the second.

    The question now is whether Lee has overcome his mental block against the Chinese star. Frederick Tan, Lee's former sports psychologist, believes that Lee's loss in Beijing was a major turning point in his mental fortitude.

    "I was by his side after the loss to Lin. He was shattered," said Tan, 50, who worked with Lee until last year.

    "All he could say was 'I am so tired'. The mental strain was evident. So in a way, the defeat in Beijing will prepare him for the battle in London.

    "Now he knows what it takes to rise to the occasion. He is more matured now as a person and player, and it will serve him well."

    Indeed, Tan thinks Lin, who wants a second Olympic gold to retire with a bang, will be under more pressure in London.

    "Maybe Lin has the slight edge on the court as the record shows, but he now knows that Lee has the game to take him on and beat him," said the former director of the Penang Sports Council who is now working in Sarawak.

    However, Tan believes Lee must block out memories of the ankle injury he came down with during the Thomas Cup finals in May, which sidelined him for three weeks, and threw a spanner in his preparations for the Olympics.

    He believes the Malaysian star will be reminded of his injury by rivals and media at the London Games, and said: "I worry over how he will respond to it.

    "My message to him is forget about the ankle injury. Treat it as something which never happened. Worrying about it will not help you."

    The other thing that Lee must tune out is Lin's killer pre-match stare during the customary pre-match handshake at the net.

    "That is his signal that he is ready for the fight and that he means business," said Tan.

    "I told Lee before he left for London last week that he must stick to his daily pre-game routine which he has been doing for years, like his meal times, his warm-up sessions and the final relaxation period where he puts on his earphones and tunes everything out."





    The question now is whether Malaysia's Lee Chong Wei has overcome his mental block against the Chinese star, Lin Dan. REUTERS

    It doesn't appear that Dan Guen Chin has any confidence in LCW.

    He is no coach, just a reporter.
    But how many of us really think that LCW can win the gold medal?

    Maybe a Poll by BC on "Who will win gold at the Olympics" in all the 5 events will be interesting!
