YES!!! I'm so happy Chen Jin took his first and hopefully not last AE title! I agree that LCW and LD didn't play optimal, but still, salute to CJ! Wooohooo!!

Huh? Please Look Up His Record!
If you're referring to the All England Open, once is right.
But that isn't any measure of a player, is it?
If so, Taufik Hidayat, who's never won the AE, would be a nobody
From here, Chen Jin goes to the Swiss Open.
Well, he's also the defending champion there

lol you can't really compare Taufik and chen Jin,
Taufik didn't win AE but he's a former world champion and he's the current OG champion and asian Champion =p
I did look at his record, Okay Chen Jin is two times world junior champion
but chen jin's career is a bit too short and taufik's too long to be really compared =p

Chen Jin current form IMO doesnt show that he is in top form. I would say that he has improved but not much. No doubt he has a better coverage and better stamina.. but his game play still lack of substance in the professional level. His style is the same old same old. Lindan was not his best, LCW definately not his usual self.
Chen Jin struggled when playing against Wacha initially but Wacha was out of gas in the 2nd set. But he bounced back playing against Sony Dwi in the QF. Anyway we will again see how he will perform in the next tourney. I do hope he can play well there too.
He still have a tremendous amount of potential in him.. but he need to add fire in his game.

I'm happy for CJ 's win. My only problem is his play is very boring to watch.

finally was able to watch the match between LCW and CJ. it really did look like LCW was trying to win without playing too aggresively, kinda weird. i found myself expecting some smashes to rain down on a few of the points but was sadly let down.

Chen Jin was in form when playing against LCW, and beat him fair square.
On the other hand, Chen Jin in form or not, was not enough to beat Lin Dan in the final... This is my opinion, and here is why:
Okay... I think almost everyone know that I am a big fan of Lin Dan, Chen Jin, and Peter Gade(in the MS department), and I have got to say that after I watch the entire match more than once, there are more than several spots that completely showed that Lin Dan(hurt or not) gave away points to Chen Jin and made sure he won that match.
Just 1 quick example(2nd set at LD23-22CJ), Lin Dan all of a sudden would start hopping like a cripple when moving back while the entire match he had not done so(even at some point of the match after a huge launch, which should put the most pressure on an injured knee), then he slowly move to back to base, and watch CJ's smash without any intention to try to save it whatsoever, to ensure he didn't win the set.
Let's not kid ourselves. Lin Dan basically read Chen Jin like a book, and as soon as Lin Dan put some effort into winning a point, he did it(at least 80% of the time).
The whole match was like Lin Dan trying to help Chen Jin develop that needed ingredient for a powerful attack, and help him to understand how to make better shot selection.
Hurt or not, Lin Dan could have beaten Chen Jin fair square if the situation allowed him.
However, another way to look at this may be:
1. The actual MS final was the match between Chen Jin and Lee Chong Wei.
2. The winner of that match(Chen Jin) received an additional gift which was an exhibition match with the defending champion(Lin Dan) the next day to show case their skill to the audience.

Chen Jin can be one hack of a counter attack player as well, and if LCW could feel that a smash at that point of time might not be a good idea, then definitely he may choose to drag the rally longer to wait for a better opportunity. It's not like he is lazy or something... and he is not in a training session with Chen Jin like Lin Dan was.
Could you at least see that in the 2nd set, as soon as LCW tried to end a rally earlier than he should with a smash not quite in position, he simply hit it into the net. Those things affect you mentally, and probably telling you to wait for a good opportunity before you unleash your fury or it will back fire.
Chen Jin may be in good form that day, and LCW may be able to feel it as well, so strategies had to adjust to the situation.
Fans should not discredit the winner(CJ in this case), just because it looked like the opponent is lazy to you. There may be a deeper reason than what the eyes tell you. Try to feel the match more...

Lin Dan played with so many varieties now, and people are still not happy?
1. Lin Dan showed backhand clears that are close to as good as Taufik.
2. He played more drop shots in 1 game than LCW in 1 match.
3. Lin Dan read Chen Jin shots better than anyone I have seen.
4. Lin Dan also dive around to save almost every shot to please the audience.
5. Lin Dan also showed better defense than almost all defensive MS players in this match.
And if all that don't please the fans, I don't know what will?
People don't like it when Lin Dan smash like hell,and now people don't like it when Lin Dan doesn't smash like hell... gosh, what do you guys want? Lin Dan to get a plastic surgery to look like LCW? Is that what you want? or Lin Dan to get a Malaysian citizenship?

Lin Dan doesn't have a lot of varities in his backhand. He only clear cross court which does not pose much threat to his opponent. But, I must say he is the best player so far. Although he is injured, he is still able to play such a tight game with chen jin.
