Well, this Guo Zhendong/Xu Chen is a new pair, so, Jung Jae Sung/Lee Yong Dae have not analyzed their play thoroughly yet to be able to perform in their usual dominant fashion
After this match, I am pretty confident that the consistent and dominating Jung/Lee will yet again dominate the MD! Hurrah!!! Esp with Kido/Hendra's own dismal and erratic performance recently, Jung/Lee should win the World Championships this year! God forbid them losing to another new pair in the early rounds

Jung/Lee had such a commanding and dominating lead at 16-8, and then 20-18, only to see that lead being overturned right at the end and the CHN pair ended up winning the second set 22-20.

Yeah, that's very unusual in their stats.
This record can be a big thing in their consistency.
JJS/LYD had lost to GZ(with XZ) in 2007 ABC SF. At the time, Guo showed very fast and aggressive movements. I know he's good.

A Sad End
In yesterday's match against the newbie Chinese pair (Guo Zhendong & Xu Chen), the Korean game was a wreck.
Clearly, Lee Yong Dae was the weakest player in the match. Where Jung Jae Sung was sharp and deadly (on the few occasions that he was afforded a good lift), Yong Dae seemed unprepared and lost. In fact, as soon as Zhang Jun noticed the lengthening string of errors from Lee Yong Dae, he had his players direct almost every attack at Yong Dae. And it worked.
The closing moments were especially bad for Lee Yong Dae. He wasted a net-tap, failed to attack two consecutive half-court lifts, tried to intercept a crosscourt lift that his partner could have killed and, in short, squandered the winning lead the Koreans had.
Jung Jae Sung made no secret of his frustration. As soon as the handshakes were exchanged, he and the senior coach walked off without waiting for Lee Yong Dae.
As for Ha Tae Kwon, the crowd will remember his loud rant for a long time.

Looks like being the BEST in badminton basics and the strategic management of games had backfired big time yesterday night and the BEST pair in the World today could not avoid the straight-sets defeat

Off topic-Not really a newbie CHN pair..
JJS & LYD haven't been sharp as of late.
*Thanks anyway for the brief recap of their match.

As LYD plays in two categories, he's controlling his stamina to play for a full week. That's one of the reasons of such results. Actually, CHN capitalizes on that weakness very tactically in recent tournaments.
Anyway, off the topic, LYD should reduce his activities outside camp in Korea. He's so popular and busy to be called here and there.

Jjs & Lyd..
With the way Oldhand described what he saw, it sounded like LYD was trying to do a bit too much out there by himself. Maybe thinking that he's playing XD with LHJ covering him.
