Up on my high horse, here, but that CJ/LD match in the semis was apalling. If that was CJ "giving his all" I'll eat my hat; I can vividly imagine Li Yongbo telling them "let Dan win, but don't tire yourselves out". Worked, though - CHN got gold and bronze...
Still, it's mere unproven speculation.
LOLOLOL, nice try, however u got it BACKWARD. By letting LD win easily, it help CJ to conserve energy and he needed it because it took CJ 79mins and 3 sets to bury LHI to earn him the bronze.
Chen Jin of China
Lee Hyun-Il of Korea
Final Score: 21-16, 12-21, 21-14
Match Duration: 79 minutes
From what i saw, it wasn't taxing at all for LD to beat LCW. LD spent more energy celebrating than beating LCW. Kekeke.
..if one wants to watch how to play and win with backhand, net-play, smash & flair, then it's Taufik
..if one wants to watch how to play and win with speed, quickness, killer smash & stamina, then it's LinDan
TH pretended to be not play seriously just not want to

be humilated by LD. Just like he withdraw HK open only played several minutes, he knew he could not beat Ld. to save his face, he had to do that. I think he really fear Ld. That's why he lost 70% when he play Ld. These years, the probablility may be 90%. Just Peter Gade to LD
not the craziest idea though, the fight between LD and TH would interest a lot of people if not everyone in the badminton world. two contrasting playing style meet again. that would be fun. bring it on.
