As for making excuses, in the Msian scene even if the reason given is "the opponent played better today" it would be seen as an excuse i.e. mentally weak, yada, yada, yada.
Basically, any tame losses to LD is not acceptable, any loss to lower ranked players is also not acceptable("How can you lose to lower ranked players?"). Since LCW is WR#2, that's from No 3 downwards. And these kind of stuff is featured in the major newspapers.

I first read this thread yesterday night, but was too tired to respond to it.
I think bananakid is being childish and his usual stubborn self.
What is wrong with finding out what went wrong? Us, as badminton fans will naturally want to know why LCW fell tamely to LD. Since many of us didn't watch the game, we want to know why. This is not giving excuse to him. This is what we didn't expect, so we want to know whether LD was superb, LCW was injured, LCW was below his form etc etc. Whats wrong with that?

Be a sport and take that loss
Our LCW lost, period. He was clearly beaten by a more superior LD last night.
No excuses please.

Because LD is a better player, as simple as that.
Same thing happened to LD. When I watch 05-06 LD vs. TH matches, in particular those after 05 WC (even after LD won WC06), I sense that LD was not fully confident. LD became fully confident only after WC07.
Li Lingwei once said (in the context that Susi was dominating WS), maybe she should continue play for a few more years (to prevent this situation). Do you think it's purely an excuse? I don't think so. There is some truth in it. Li Lingwei's retirement leaves a vacuum in world WS and Susi rose up to fill it, should Li Lingwei continue to play for a few years, Susi may not have enough time to build full confidence before a new generation of Chinese WS arrived.
For LCW, unfortunately even if LD get married after OG08, it's not likely that he will (like TH) stop training. So indeed it's not clear how LCW can overcome this confidence problem.

Again we are not finding excuses..In fact each wining or losing there must be a reason behind! LCW is now on par with LD... The wining factor is base on the on court performance(tactic,less error,pressure handling etc..)..I could not agree that LD is still better then LCW.. But if you say LD play better in that match.. I would agree..
Or we twist the question to what is the REASON/wining factor for LD in this match? The answer will be from the so call "excuses" from LCW...

In my opinion:
- Physically LD is fitter (may be not by much).
- His attack is still more superior for setting him up to win point.
- His placement is more accurate/ less unforced errors.
- Mentally stronger/more confident.

Of course LCW is on par with LD. LD has a lot of respect for LCW . Look how LD invites LCW to share the same champion podium with him.I don't think LD offers that to any other player.

LCW sometime IMO overdoing the kind of deception delay shot which cause him unforced errors or become not deceptive anymore.
One shot that he can learn from Taufik is returning LD smash to the middle of the net when you can. This work well to many left handed player.
