This thread gets so hot; reflecting LYD's popularity and expectation for his performance.

Rather... It reflects how much the 'domination theory' someone proposed is totally BS.

^^Do you know..^^
..the percentage or portion of M'sian BCers in this forum??..I'll give you a clue, it's more than 20x than those of Korean BCers..
Btw, you forgot to count in the "KKK & TBH on the trail back" thread..

Um, Men's Doubles today is hardly a 'permission' game.
Lee Yong Dae's game is now one of the more predictable ones on court... and perhaps this stagnation has a lot to do with his packed off-court schedule. From a style that almost every opponent knows inside out, he needs to move to a fluid, changing, adaptable game (like the great Kim Dong-Moon).
The Danish pair's domination over the main Korean pair should have been a wake-up call to the Korean side.... but, it seems, no one has yet woken up. And now, the Danes are eating every Korean pair in sight.
You also make it sound as if Lee Yong Dae is the only player on the current circuit who competes in multiple categories. Er, that's hardly the case

Even INA fans cannot say that our World No 1, the World and Olympic Champions is the dominating pair in the World, given the fact that there are just so many good pairs around and it's tough to rule for a long period of time. We are just glad they won the 2 biggies and they will probably be split anyway given Kido's injury, which have yet to heal even until now.

I see many people here happy with their single knock-out in the first round. That's proving how much this is unusual for them and how they have consistently advanced to the SF and Finals of most tournaments.
Oldhand should look into their recent stats against the two Danish teams.
Anyway, LYD still advanced to SF in XD, which is against my prediction stated before in the thread on LYD.

Good chance for Kindra to take long-waiting winner in MD.
Be happy and enjoy!

In terms of early rounds defeat (before QF stage), its certainly not unusual for the GREAT Lee Yong Dae as well, having lost to Hoon Thien How/Lin Woon Fui in the Badminton Asia Championships 2009 in front of the home crowd (partnering Shin Baek Cheol) So make it 2 this year

Yeah, the great LYD got his GOLD Medal in the Beijing at his age of 19 that proves his greatness.
2 for all this year is not unusual?? Thx for your efforts to extract the stats and you need to look up the word "unusual" in the dictionary. Conversely, that's proving that he has generally advanced to upper stages even as playing in two categories. WoW!
He's following his seniors, KDM and PJB.
