i don't think lyb would allow that as he has too many at stake
I edited my post, after your reply, with Kenichi Tago's impressive 2010 All-England results:
Have a look at KT's results;
Kenichi Tago[JPN] defeated [CHN] Jin Chen  22-20, 19-21, 21-13
Kenichi Tago[JPN] defeated [CHN] Chunlai Bao  18-21, 22-20, 21-18
I don't see what LYB has got to do to with who is to be World No.1; when you said
"i don't think lyb would allow that as he has too many at stake".

There are too many conjectures here. Chen Long this and Tago that, really have no meaning.
LCW is champ right now and we should live with that for now.

from the score it was a close match and the china players just couldn't finish tago in straight sets - simply they were not fit enough during that tournament!

LCW is 1st seed at SO10 and IO10, while PG and TH are 2nd seed respectively. So both SS are for LCW to lose. With LCW current huge lead, LD MIA and not interested in WR, LCW has no serious rival and should remain WR1 for 2010 and into 2011. OLY12 is in August 2012, LCW prolly will be WR1 in 2012. The only possibility is LYB letting ZM, CJ and CL to play in a lot of SS in 2011 which are unlikely since LYB is more into CHN leaque.
Besides BAM rewarding huge bonus $$$ for WR1 (I am not sure what other countries do the same and CHN certainly doesn't), there is no motivation for LD or CJ (LCW main rivals) to play in so many SS risking injuries and exposure, besides SS are Yonex sponsored, so what's is there to interest CHN LN-sponsored players?
Winning SS is important to LCW for the $$$ that comes with winning and feeding into endorsement, etc. If I am LCW, I would play in as many SS as possible, with a career less than 2.5 years away, reap as much $$$ as possible while the going is still good and LD MIA, then retire laughing all the way to the bank. If along the way can win a major or 2, that would be icing on the cake and if don't, well....let the fans cry about it, for LCW would definitely not end up like the Arumugams of MAS soccer fame.
I heard a lot in the forum saying LD is afraid of LCW, let's be honest here, the score contradicts completely. I am not a fan of LD or any player but I credit and respect the man who truly has earned his rightful place in badminton history.
Put yourself in LD position, he has won everything worth mention, to play 5 nights and win a SS for a paltry US$20K, split half with CBA equals to US$10K, that is US$2K per night and takes a lot of hard work, travel, why even bother, really? I bet LD makes more $$$ doing endorsement than training and playing. If it is not for OLY12, I bet LD would have retired. Just that he needs the ranking points from SS to qualify for OLY12, to remain in CHN team, maintain his form (EAG09 proved absence can hurt him) and maintain at least a WR2 to avoid meeting LCW in the same half (this is not fear but smart strategy as LCW would not want LD to be in his half too). That is my 2 cents.
