Fact: Lin Dan had 1 match point at 20-19 in the second set, which he could not convert and ended up losing 21-23.
Fact: Lin Dan had 2 further match points at 20-18 before that controversial call was made, again, he could not convert those 2 match-points.
Fact: Lin Dan actually had 1 last match point at 23-22, which was after the controversial line call. He failed to nail that one as well, which eventually led to Lee Hyun Il winning the match.
So, who was it to blame if not himself?

Match points lost. So near, yet so far.
Oh well, Lin Dan. There's always the next tournament.
He gave me a weak smile when I shook his hand. He was still gracious.

I'm surprised you even want to watch the vid, must have made you a curious cat rather than Wood pecker bird.
And no, I dont have the video, I joined BC abt same time as you did.
You need to ask the "Senior" BCers .
There are press reports in the WC 2006 thread :
and 'fly' thru that WC 2006 thread & see.
Azabar - apparently there was also bad line calls. I remember it all over the papers that time. For details, read the WC 2006 thead & judge for yourself.

From the link you provided above, it's only what LCW said what LYB said. And unfortunately, I don't have the time to " 'fly' thru that WC 2006 thread & see".

The overturned line calls were bad and corrected by umpire, not me. So what you are arguing about? "LHI would already had 21 before this incident if the overuling was not made to LDs favour". If your assumption is correct here, next time, all we need is to have KO linesmen decide who will win MS title in KO SS instead of players
I did not extrapolate results, I only looked at the score occurred after 21-21. They were facts, not imaginary numbers with ifs ...LD should have won the point at 21-21, and the bad line call was not corrected. These were all facts, not extrapolations

So, the facts were different too:
Fact: Lin Dan got the point during Lee Hyun Il's serve.
Can you guarantee that Lin Dan would have won the match if he was serving for the match at 22-21 (supposedly if the controversial line call was given to Lin Dan too)?
Note that these 2 were entirely different scenarios (not the same which you have assumed them to be). That's why twobeer said you extrapolated

It's like in 2010, some newbie asks abt this KO 2008 incident, comes here & reads the threads & sees line by line description of the sequence, he, he.
If the newbie asks for the vid, we might have to wipe the dust off our disc/external harddrive too.
As I've said, me thinks CO 2007 is more relevant since this thread is talking abt that .

And yes, at 1st I didnt quite get why they keep mentioning it, so went to read the WC 2006 again. The main similarity I could find was in both LCW's reaction & subsequent lost was critised as "mentally weak."
And , I was trying to point their attention to CO 2007. With both of us, maybe can succeed, eh?
