If lcw does well, all is well. If lcw looses in early rounds. how? What do you reckon?
03-07-2011, 09:52 AM #5275
Maybe 2 possibilities here if lcw lost,
Either the press will look for an excuse and misbun's name would pop up once again
and the saga continues again ..
Or lcw will speaks up again he needs misbun by his side
03-07-2011, 09:56 AM #5276

LCW did TH a favor by joining TH's club and played in the recent INA league and TH's club won the league's men's team title.
Maybe Li Mao would also whisper some useful information should all his charges drop out early; LM just does not have any respect for LD. He called LD 'names' after the melee at the 2008 Korean Open MS title match between LD and LHI.

Sportsman, Sportswoman of the Year award will have stiff competitions
KUALA LUMPUR: The competition for the National Sportsman and Sportswoman award is getting tougher by the year.
And with an improved number of athletes breaking the barriers at the Commonwealth and Asian Games last year, expect a tough call to name the winners for the National Sports Council’s (NSC) annual awards on March 15.
Yesterday, the selection panel reduced the number of nominees and in the men’s category, 11 athletes will vie for the award.
They are Lee Chong Wei (badminton), Mohd Azizulhasni Awang (cycling), Sazali Samad (bodybuilding), Norshahrul Idlan Talaha (football), Alex Liew (bowling), Mohd Qabil Ambak Mahamad Fathil (equestrian), S. Kumar (hockey), R. Puvaneswaren (karate), Daniel Bego (swimming), Bryan Nickson (diving) and Azlan Iskandar (squash).
A close contest is expected between All-England champion Chong Wei and World Cup winner Azizul for making waves on the international stage.
The two heavyweights will be strongly challenged by Alex, Puvaneswaren and Azlan, who achieved excellent results in the Asian Games.
Norshahrul has also played an instrumental role in the national football team, who gained some measure of respect for their exploits in several international tournaments.

Badminton / All England: Chance for Chong Wei to end Lin Dan jinx
IT is going to be a battle royale between defending champion Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan of China in the All England, beginning today, as the latter looks to be in great shape since winning the Korea Open in January.
Lin Dan's easy victory in the German Open on Sunday, where he toyed with compatriot and world champion Chen Jin, is an indication that Chong Wei will face a harder time than in the Korea Open.
Chong Wei had stated before leaving for Birmingham that he was confident despite his rival's fine form.
It will not be much trouble for Chong Wei to clear the early hurdles where he will play Sho Sasaki of Japan in the first round, likely meet Bao Chunlai of China in the second round and a possible quarter-final tie with Simon Santoso of Indonesia.
This will be followed by a meeting with another familiar foe, Peter Gade Christensen of Denmark, who Chong Wei has beaten on numerous occasions and should do so again in the expected semi-final clash.
Lin Dan has no peers and his only resistance could come against Chen Jin in a likely semi-final encounter and after the German Open, the latter will not fancy his chances at all.
Chong Wei has never beaten Lin Dan in the All England as the four-time champion was shown an early exit in last year's campaign and the Malaysian downed Kenichi Tago to earn the title.
Chong Wei has to do it without coach Misbun Sidek this time but he seems to have settled down without his mentor for the last three months.
In fact, it is not Misbun's presence that will make a difference but Chong Wei's hunger for another All England title and his burning desire to topple Lin Dan in a major event for the first time.

Chong Wei’s world No. 1 status under serious threat
PETALING JAYA: Lee Chong Wei’s three-year reign as the top ranked player in the BWF World Super Series is under serious threat at the All-England, which begins today in Birmingham.
The Malaysian is at the risk of dropping one rung to the No. 2 spot in the Super Series ranking if he fails in the defence of the title and China’s Lin Dan takes the crown.
And with his status and pride at stake, expect a determined Chong Wei to go the extra mile in the championships.
The prestigious All-England is a Premier Super Series event and offers US$350,000 in prize money for the first time.
The rivalry has grown very close between Chong Wei and Lin Dan in the World Super Series with the Malaysian winning the season-opening event at home with Lin Dan closing in by defeating the world No. 1 in the final of the South Korea Open a week later.
In the past, Lin Dan had chosen to skip many of the Super Series tournaments but with BWF making it compulsory for all the top 10 players to compete, the badminton stage has suddenly become more competitive and exciting for the fans.
Barring any upsets, top seed Chong Wei and Lin Dan are expected to clash in the All-England final.
Chong Wei said that he had not lost the fire to win the All-England title for a second time but he would tread with caution on the way he approached his matches.
“Of course, I would like to retain the title but the journey will not be easy.
“I have made mistakes in the past by putting too much pressure on myself from the start,” he said.
“I want to take it one day at a time. It’s getting tougher and tougher every year.”
Following the withdrawal of Japan’s Sho Sasaki, Chong Wei will take on qualifier Brice Leverdez of France in the first round today.
The others in his half of the draw include Indonesians Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Simon Santoso, China’s Bao Chunlai and Chen Long and Denmark’s Peter-Gade Christensen.
Third seed and four-time All-England champion Lin Dan meets veteran Malaysian Wong Choong Hann in the opening round and others in the half of the draw are second seed Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia, Chinese Chen Jin, Wang Zhengming and Du Pengyu, and South Korean Park Sung-hwan.
