The Japan Open final was very close. Two talented professionals played and one won.... regardless of how they got there. (Surely Chen Long had no say in any skulduggery that may or may not have happened with his semi-final)
From what I have seen in the past, I liked Chen Long. Tall yet quick. Talent well balanced between defence and offence. And keeps composed ... most of the time. It is no surprise that he can beat anyone in badminton on a given day.
However the ridiculous celebration sprint after the win, then shaking hands with his opponent and officials only as an afterthought, was not so classy. Perhaps if it was in China with a pumped-up crowd it would have been understandable. Chalk up this lapse of courtesy to youthful exuberance.
At any rate, let us hope that politeness can still be the norm among all the professionals and that nationalism among we BC fans does not ruin the fun we have watching them.

And more respect should be payed to such a great champion like Lee Chong Wei, who was totally ignored.

This is a disgraceful behaviour towards fans and opponents. The fans pay money to watch these amazing players and expect semi finals to be played. It is also disrespectful against opponents. It is not sportsmans-like.
And just to clarify, I actually liked Chen Long and wanted him to win the final. But the end of the final left a bitter taste.

Re the celebration i actually look at it the other way.
CL's celebration was a compliment to LCW. after all it's only a SS title, one of the many yearly.
That’s mean so much to CL because he knew how difficult to beat the world No 1, one of the best.
if after the final point he just came over to shake hand made it all 'matter of factly' that it was mine in the bag and may be said something like 'try harder next time'. that would really hurt.

Starting in 2007, players from the same nation are not separated in the main draw of the tournaments. All but the top two seeds will not be divided into two draws as they were before. The top Chinese player Lin Dan has criticized the rule change. 2010 onwards saw rules altered with nationality separation in the first round."

Any advantage CL got from the semi would not have matched his disadvantage in playng back to back tournaments all the way to final. LCW struggled against Tago and lost to CL, his fans must be slightly worried

So chen long again beat Lee Chong wei in the Danish open finals, so that can't be just lee chong wei not playing at his fullest. I believe Chen Long became another hurdle for Chong Wei after lin dan, and I also think Chen Long can be one of those hot favorites for London Olympics, because he has everything, height, fitness, shots, and now some experience too.
I had the priviledge to play with him in the Asian Junior Championships 2007 where he won against Arif in the finals. back then Arif looked better than him, but now there's no way to compare these two guys. Good luck to both

Big congrats to CL. Although a bit surprise how quickly he has improved, I always like this guy. Seems down to earth and friendly, but more importantly he will rule MS in the near future.

Does anyone know what shoes Chen Long uses ? They look REALLY nice!
