2nd, many Msians in real life dont give much credit to Msian players when they win too. So it works both ways
Zealous did say LCW played too safe which means LCW didnt play well, which means it's LCW's fault. Yap KH said sthing like LCW was sluggish.
KKK/TBH lost cos KKK was said to be overconfident & then paniced when the Japanese returned KKK's good shots- Rexy said that, not a fan.

Not due to which country the player is from.
Anyway, congrats to CJ, hope to see more exciting matches in future.

A bit off topic-In that AE MS Final..
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?

1. Disagree. TH's backhand is indeed unique. Currently no one else is close. Listen to Morten Frost's comments during TH - LCW, he appreciates TH's backhand so much.
2. Agree. The reason is because LD is very relaxed and is just having fun.
3. Agree. LD is the world's best "shots reader". And as I said many times before, that's why his teammates usually have no chance when playing him. (With CH the only exception).
5. Agree. LD's defence is very strong, and the main reason of that is his ability to read his opponents. If you know what kind of shot your opponent is gonna play, defence becomes much easier.

Anyhow, it should be my fault because I should have leaned on day 1 to be careless with bias fans that they will never accept defeats but excuses for their idol/nation or discount the opponent.

Read the posts again. No one denied that CJ played better in that match. What people are discussing is the reason why CJ played better in that match. Is it because CJ has become too good, or because LCW played below par? Many people, including myself, think the latter is more likely because LCW's reflex/movement was much slower than what he exhibited in most of his previous matches over these years.
The same thing can be said about the final. Did CJ play better than LD in the final? Of course he did and that's why he won. Does the result of the final mean that in the future CJ will be able to match LD? I don't think so. Because LD played way below his usual level in the final.
Of course the situation of the SF is not as clear as the Final. But that's why we need to discuss about it, and thus learn from others' opinions and observations.
Hope the above explanation help convincing you that most people are not as "biased" as you imagined.

Of course when they lose, the press will bug the players & coaches as to "why you lose?" not "why your opponent win?".
Of course one needs to look into one's own weakness, they cant just say "My lower ranking opponent played better", not in public, not so near OG, sesssssh such statement would draw even more critism. I.e. saying that in public would mean the players are giving excuses, lazy, mentally weak - get the picture?
Saying his own weakness means LCW knows his shortcomings, he apologised for those shortcomings, will work to improve. That augurs better with the sports authorities & public.
Did you actually read the press reports? Do you know how upset the NSC, BAM are, that such failures are unacceptable? That they want meet up with the players after Swiss Open to ensure it does not happen again?
On KKK/TBH's lost, Rexy did say Sakamota/Ikeda played "exceptionally well."

I watched a bit of the AE MSF. To me, CJ is really boring to watch; no style, not special in any areas. I found LD's footwork to really have deteriorated; he's practically tripping over himself when he was diving, he used backhand so much, and in general, looked way out of it.
03-12-2008, 10:08 AM #43
yup, watched the game last night as well, LD looks to be fooling around, i've never seen him so completely unbalanced so many times in a game before, and from what i could see, this wasn't really due to any shots which CJ made.
in any case, it seems that CJ is injured now anyway, which can only be good news for LCW.

I am happy that Chen Jin won the AE, but I do not think he is the man to beat at this year's Olympics. Watching the final, Lin Dan was playing injured (or half-heartedly) and just pretty much kept the rallies going with no intent to kill the shuttle. Chen Jin seemed to be trying hard to finish the rally but Lin Dan just stood his ground, and in the end, Lin Dan forced deuce in both sets.
Chen Jin really lacks substance in his play IMO, its seems like he is well rounded, but does not excel in any one area to be able to win rallies.

CJ is well above average in every department, but he's more like a jack of all trades, master of none.

Why all this talk of Lin Dan throwing the match or being injured.
1. All Chinese players follow orders. Cheng Hong and Bao Chunlai as to who had the better record against Taufik, and as such who would win their match and face Taufik in the final before, etc.
2. Even if Lin Dan was injured... well done to Chen Jin.
3. Chen Jin looks a good outside chance for Olympic games:
2000 Taufik was favorite, Ji Xinpeng beat him in the quarter final.
2004 Lin Dan was favorite, Ronald beat him in the round of 32, Taufik won.
2008 Lin Dan is favorite...

I think we have over discussed the LD vs CJ final and reasons now.

I disagree. I think Chen Jin has made loads of improvement. From playing at junior level in the World Juniors a couple of years ago to winning an AE title is no small feat. Definitely, he is not as good as LD, BCL and CH but at his age, he has plenty of time to make up for it. He has a rather big headstart against the other competitors his age, playing in big games and gaining valuable experience and confidence before any of them. When we finally see LD, LCW and TH getting older and their game slowing down, CJ will be there to bring them down.
Just my 2 cents.
