    Hopefully his plan was to save his energy for his 10th consecutive Malaysian Open win.

    Since that win TS game has improved and he defeated a top form CL and has started to
    enter semifinal and final - CL is so difficult to beat these days that one victory for an
    upcoming player means a lot and when he's an Indonesian, watch out, that means its not
    a fluke but a lot of video watching and technical coaching.

    There is no need to find excuse, CW knows this is year 2014 already and with a fire breathing dragon CL there's nothing much he can do accept be consistent going to finals or semi finals and collect as much $$$ while he still can. So you guys if you are all still thinking of old CW trying to win a major, good luck!

    Proton got no sports car unless you count Lotus in. Even their D-segment car is from Honda. Mr. Kangkong and other ministers are using them as official cars.

    This is what I have saying for so long...LCW is a pro player, collect all those ringgit and SS/SSP while the going is still good, if CHC is absent so much the better and say thanmk you to LYB being generous. LCW once said he may passed up SSF, I posted there is no way he would not play in the SSF, the field is so weak, easy money and playing at home. After playing days is over, play the political connection card and Malaysian style business, even play politics. If you think Malaysian politics does not make money, check it out. Make sure you align yourself with the winning horse

    I don't think he will retire. Definitely like OTB says, too much money. If there is any retirement, I guess he needs to go round the circuit for one more year to do more promotional events in preparation for post-retirement life. Rather like Peter Gade and Taufik (although more Yonex contract requirements).

    Could you ever imagine LCW retiring and not having him play in Malaysian Open? A ten time winner not letting the home fans say goodbye to him? Definitely not.

    if LCW retires, it will prove again that he is weak in the mental side of things.

    he is a national icon and so far he has been capitalizing on that one fact. commercial and banners across the country bring in all the money for him so he can buy his sports car and live like a king.

    this is all possible because he is still playing, and winning. and the country love him. but fans have short memory, once he is out of the spot light, sponsors will go away as well. and so will his lifestyle.

    there is some talk about him coaching the younger generation, i don't see that happening. coaching is tough life and simply don't pay enough i am afraid. he will be on contract and salary and will have to continuously deal with idiots in BAM. not the best type of life.

    i do see him opening badminton club, following the example of Taufik and others. I don't know how much revenue that will generate though, and I honestly doubt he will be very involved in the running of such a club himself.

    all these retirement is just a smoke screen. as long has he is still winning, i don't think that will happen.

    Imho there's another way to look at retirement : better to leave the sport at the top of the game, instead of inevitably going thru a slow declining phase. Like TH or PG. He is 31 after all, not a young pup anymore... even though he may be one of the fittest player in badminton history, time is not on his side.

    Plus, mentally it'll be getting more difficult for his will power to train and play to win as much as previously, now that he's a dad and family becomes more important.

    Yup, like what visor has said. Retire at top of the game when he's still world no 1.

    Supporters won't think that he's getting old except for the more sensible ones. They will just think he is starting to lose to everyone. By then, his no. 1 spot will be taken over by others.

    So at the very least, when he retires at world no 1, few can claimed to beat him. Right now, there's only LD and CL (on a more frequent basis).
