Jeez, monkeys in power and running the show. But then again, I've seen even monkeys lead a pack into New Delhi to steal food. The monkeys over here however, are stealing other things.

Give LCW a break. He has been slogging 110% for the past 6 years and being No. 1 for almost 4 years. He is already 30 years old. The body is starting to break down. if he continues without giving his battered body some rest he wont last much longer.
No need to worry about CL, DPY WZM catching up because they are suppose to catch up now anyway.
LCW is at the tail end of his top flight game. His carreer may not be over yet but his stay at the top with LD is going to be over soon.
Realistically if he wants to stay relevant and probaly win the majors in neext 2 years or so giving up the top spot may not be a bad thing. Choose his tournaments, conditon his body to peak at right moment, he could still whacked CL, WZM or even Axel in 4 more years .

If LCW had been basketball player professionally
I'd imagine if LCW's father had said no to the first coaching lessons at B. Mertajam, of if Frost had failed to convince BAM about LCW, LCW would still be a good basketball player. The video below is such:
The stark differences in height between the fifth grader and the basketball adult players are just the way it would seem when LCW had competed with the seniors while he was still a junior player a long time ago. Well, not that long, roughly 15years ago.

Chong Wei eyes legend's record

LEE Chong Wei should have the easiest task of winning next year's Malaysia Open but the event will have a special place as the World No 1 will overtake the legendary Wong Peng Soon's haul of eight titles at Putra Stadium on Jan 15-20.
...Chong Wei has also proved that he is second to none when it comes to the Malaysia Open, winning the title eight times beginning 2004 until this January.
...China's top shuttlers Lin Dan, Chen Long, Chen Jin and Du Pengyu have skipped the event and the only players Chong Wei needs to worry are Japan's Kenichi Tago and Sho Sasaki.
...Other familiar names who will be competing are former Indonesians Taufik Hidayat and Sony Dwi Kuncoro, Wang Zhengming of China, Nguyen Tien Minh of Vietnam and Jan Jorgensen of Denmark but none of them are expected to trouble Chong Wei.
Lack of top 20 players have also worked in other Malaysians' favour as Liew Daren, Chong Wei Feng, Arif Latif and Tan Chun Seang will also feature in the main draw.

This was the 2007 Hong Kong Open SM, LCW vs Kenneth Jonassen.
You could see the fast exchanges being won by LCW. Jonassen is equally powerful with his smashes, sometimes awing us with his backand smashes. You can also see the awfully long time Jonassen takes to serve us short serve. However his flick serve is much faster, probably imitating Frost's love of the flick serve. However Jonassen's flick is peculiar indeed, not fooling LCW anyway. This 2nd game had Jonassen leading but LCW had the tenacity to bounce back and win the final point of the game with a spectacular cross court net shot. Please note that Jonassen was already 33 years old, which is no easy feat.
Video quality is lacking, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Yup, great match and as usual, a very sporting and gracious Jonassen even in defeat.
01-03-2013, 11:06 PM #9088
Yes, later on LD defeated Lcw in the final.
01-04-2013, 12:27 AM #9089
Yup, you can hear the commentator annouced it at the end of the video.

How could he write the book 'Dare to be a CHAMPION' when he did not become a world champion yet.
The book should be called 'Dare to be a RUNNER-UP' instead...

Hint: may contain sarcasm.
You can be a champion even if you're not the most successful person in your field ever. So, while Lin Dan is a bigger champion than LCW (being by far the most successful player in the history of badminton), LCW is undoubtedly a champion as well. After all, the book isn't called 'Dare to be a World Champion'.
