    His chance for replacing LD as the no 1 in china is getting bigger n bigger.He's so fast,n aggresive.Always play every game with his whole heart.That's what makes him bigger these days.

    how about in 2005, Lin Dan was 21. he won 5 titles. Chen Jin's won 1 title this year, and 1 last year. i'm not saying Chen Jin isn't good. i think he's a brilliant player. i just don't think he'll have the same dominance as Lin Dan. sure, he'll replace Lin Dan, because eventually, Lin Dan will retire. but he won't eclipse him.

    i may be wrong. Chen Jin still has some way to go, he's still young. but so was Lin Dan when he reached World no.1. but Lin Dan had so much talent and ability that he could do that. Chen Jin looks more like a slow maturer to me.

    by the way, does anyone know why Chen Jin retired. unfortunately i didn't watch the match yesterday.

    I read he had a back injury or something.

    IMO, Chen Jin doesn't have that kind of personal flair to his style; nothing sticks out as his trademarks. He doesn't have an insane backhand, extreme speed, amazing power, or anything. IMO, he'll still be at the top when LD is gone, but I think others will be dominating instead of him.

    Well, the discussion was about sportmanship.. And I think that shaking hands and appluading you opponent after a loss, certainly is good sportmasnhip..

    My comment was that I don't feel the tumbs up etc after WINNING against PG was any "evidence" of particurlary great sportsmanship fom CJs part..

    In my view, it would have been more appropriate to show his respect by applauding with the racket much the same way he did when defeated by LCW.. Overdoing the applause and thumbs up to your opponent after defeating him is almost as bad as not shaking hands after a loss, imop..
    Not very respectful imop.. (at least if it wasn't an extremely tight 3 seter where you wanted to show the audience that it could have gone either way..)

    But it may be different, in different cultures, what do I know?

    Yeah I have to agree. When Lin dan came, he really turned heads like crazy. Everyone was like 'How do you stop this guy!?!?'

    Chen Jin came in as a 2 time world junior champ. Sure he was good but he's playing with the big boys now and could not physically dominate his opponents like a rag doll. He's stil very good though. You don't get into the top 5 for nothing.

    But hey! With Chen Jin's defensive style + deceptive strokes here and there........ doesn't this make CHEN JIN the next LEE CHONG WEI???

    well, chen jin might be the next dominant player when taufik, lin dan, peter gade dan LCW retired provided no young hotshot with an abundance of talent packed in a very young body came into the picture. it just seems that when a champion is born you kinda see it real early. LCW starts to shine a bit late and he is still trailing lin dan.

    It seems so at the moment... no other youngster at his age seems to be at his standard.

    Mas- Chung seng & INA - Andre still few level below...

    But could CHina cheating on his age just like they did for their basketball player so that they could play in younger age group and win??

    You never know what the communist could do

    hopefully Chen Jin won't burn out at an early age...

    when he got tired (or was it injured) playing against LCW in the French Open, that was worrying, a young player like him can be like that...

    he has the talent and determination, hope he makes it, and do very well... hehe...

    Maybe one of these days after Lin Dan dives, some of his robotic interiors are revealed? haha. by super soldier, you do mean that he is already sent for high level training since young and nurtured scientifically? ( by scientifically, I mean that these bunch of scientist calculate his heart rate and stuff like that not that he is robocop or terminator)

    for chen jin, seeing him getting injured so often and all, I don't think he can go far if he does not start to take care of his body, he is still way to young to get injuries here and there. well, he did really well these years, and has became peter gade's nemesis. In my opinion, he is so far the most graceful chinese male player around.

    I know I'm not fully into the site, having been away for quite awhile, but I was reading recently about how China will fix matches to suit the team coaching staff and/or administration or whomever...

    I wonder if it's possible if Chen Jin did not hurt himself but bowed out because he was asked to by LYB, for reasons unknown to us. I'm not implying anything, I didn't see the match or anything, and I don't know if there's any logic to it (as in how it would be a benefit to Team China)...

    But I'm just saying if he's so young, and should be so fit...maybe he's not really tired out or hurt. Maybe there's more to it.

    Ahhhhh cut the speculation, some people here wouldn't allow of it.
    But I happen to be those gullible one who takes things easily and believe in what I choose to believe. Especially when it is coming from ants, HuangKwokHau and many of them well connected inside man that talk with players after their game.

    sinner your words are not highlvl...

    I hope that CJ is going to be the next chinese super star! Now there are too many others (BCL, LD, LCW), but all of them are older than him. So his chances will come, maybe in Olympic Games 2012!

    i was 14 two years ago and strained my archilles tendon. i had to sit out for 3 weeks, no playing. so age doesn't determine whether you can get injury or not. have you ever thought that Chen Jin didn't want to aggravate his back further.

    don't bring the walkout discussions here. we've got plenty of threads covering that already.

    Athlete1234, why did they end up being locked? I'm certainly not interested in really getting into it. It's not a speculation, as I said, I'm not implying anything. Just wondering if everyone else thinks his injury or complaint is true. I think from what I'm reading that it likely is.

    I like Shifty's point that age doesn't prohibit injuries, and that if his back was strained, he chose to bow out early rather than risk it.

    Anyhow, imo, enough has been said about it. Thanks all!

    Cory
