    While a couple of badminton keen observers have noted that Daren's smash is nothing to shout about (some say no or too little of forearm pronation), it is however not the case that is Daren's major obstacle that would make Daren shine if this obstacle is concurred. While forearm pronation is the gold standard and conventional and mainstream orthodox, players like Zhao Jianhua who minimalized usage of forearm pronations is the superb exception and shining example .

    Where for on the other hand, concentration is of utmost importance in singles and doubles, but I dare say singles is the most demanding in terms of concentration and focusing, and right now this is Daren's achilles' heel impeding his improvement and rise in quality of play. Players who depend less on forearm pronation usually as always, possess a very flexible and elastic wrist work, as seen from Daren's backhand serves.

    The grueling duel in which LCW overcamed a superbly crafty LD was the Korean Open 2012 final. LD's crafty drives had LCW scurrying all 4 corners with his court craft. LCW fired at LD 250km/h smashes and yet LD retrieved them. LD fired his stinging smashes and although LCW's dive retrievals were successful, LD was even faster coming to the net to tap it down. LCW's nettings tumble over the net, and LD answered with identical tumbles as well too. LCW changed tactics to lobs and LD answered with his pin point lobs too. LCW let go and LD's lobs tinged at the corner intersecting lines. So all smashes, nets, retrievals and lobs were unequaled to LD's. LD was a class above. But then, it seemed LCW never gave up and held his composure in 2nd game. Even at 15-all, LCW still had oomph in him to win the 2nd. In the 3rd game, LCW's smashes were back at his sideline accuracy. For a bonus, even his netting became far superior to LD. LCW no longer relied on drops and lobs, but attack with smashes most of the time and it was LD who played a more rallied game. It almost seemed that LCW played a poker 1st game letting LD played superior only to find out in the decider that the marathon LCW suddenly shot ahead to the finishing line 18-11 lead. The game ended triumphantly with a gallant body smash to LD. It also seemed that LD did not want or did not want to continue chasing the match deficits. I would say this was the game that LCW continued to persevere with a mental win, not so much as a power win.

    Well I think his smashes are just fine and powerful. In French Open they were used a lot effectively. Some people just want to nit pick on petty issues. The idea of the smash is to force opponents into making mistakes /weak returns or directly win a point. It it achieves this purpose does not matter how Darren executes them.

    LD and CL powerful smash also didn't work on LCW at OG 2013... u can see how LD play not as normal when he face LCW untill LYB yelling crazily at the 3rd set... hahahaa... DPYu smash also didn't work at him when Korean Open 2013... i might say that top 4 of China single players got powerful smash and efectively being a weapon to others players... but to defeat LCW they must to strategize another way rather of smash...

    Yes I really think LCW should equip himself with LD's 'clip it down-smash' which is seldom seen if any, in other players. In fact I trying to use it myself too. While experimenting for the umpteen time, I only manage to execute it once and everyone was amazed at how fast the 'clip it down smash' came down the floor with a fraction of the full body smash power (probably 50-60%). The trick is to be at the intercepting position of the shuttle flight as early as possible and diminishing out all unnecessary body movements that cut down execution time etc shoulder rotation, forearm pronation, body weight shifting, aiming the direction of the racket face before contact, all these is minimized. And after all these are taken out, what is left of power is only from the whip of the racket head and the power from your wrist. It's not easy I tell you, but it can be done.

    Default Badminton-Malaysian Lee hoping to find prodigy at new tournament

    Thomson Reuters

    February 24, 2013 06:00



    Feb 24 (Reuters) - With Lee Chong Wei entering the closing chapters of his illustrious career and a dearth of men's talent coming through in Malaysia, the world number one said he would host an annual tournament to find his replacement.

    The Lee Chong Wei Cup
    will be a nationwide junior tournament held in his homeland, the London Olympic silver medallist and only Malaysian in the men's top 10 said.

    "It is my dream to see another Chong Wei groomed in this country before I retire. Together with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM), I plan to host the Lee Chong Wei Cup," the 30-year-old told reporters in Malaysia.

    "It will be good if I can start it later this year or early next year. And I want it to be an annual affair.

    "I want it to be held in every state. Currently, in our academy there are not many singles players coming through and that is a real concern for me."


    Lee lost a second Olympic final to his great rival Lin Dan of China last year and hinted at retirement but the twice Commonwealth Games gold medallist showed he still had something to offer by claiming the $1 million Korea Open last month.

    He followed that up with a ninth Malaysian Open title and is confident of claiming a third All-England crown next month with little sign that the pressures of carrying a nation's hopes is affecting his play.

    And should his tournament prove a fruitless search for talent, Lee could always look closer to home.

    "We are expecting a baby boy,"
    he said. (Reporting by Patrick Johnston in Singapore, editing by Amlan Chakraborty)

    "The Lee Chong Wei Cup will be a nationwide junior tournament to be held in every state and every year..."

    Finally we have the world no. 1 to pro-actively lead in grass-roots development. Wonder how the format looks like? Whether its club base and whether this will complement / contradict the MSSM which is school based? Any comments? Hope this will come to fruition!

    It's great to see the pro's giving back to the sport. Especially for LCW, since Morten Frost was the one to give him a chance. Now he has a chance to give someone a similar opportunity.

    In the first video at around 0:49, LCW moves forward to the net, turns back to the backhand corner and even has the time to look where his opponent is standing...
