..you also forgot to mention LD has also lost to LCW with or without TXH coaching behind him.
How do you define "LD still seems to be more confident vs. LCW with coach Tang there"?..
I don't know whether LCW had played against LD before without Misbun sitting behind him (need someone to do a bit of research), but it seems you're also digging deep to use Misbun's absence as one of the reasons for LCW's lost to LD in this KO PSS. If it's really true and if that's really the case, then i really feel pity about LCW and some of LCW's supporters; that a pro like him who has played and competed vs. LD so many countless times, probably LCW has played against him the most than any other player, still needs Misbun to guide him to victory.

I doubt that Misbun, just by being there could really help LCW win his match. LCW seemed to be playing normally, because the analysis by Misbun was given to him RIGHT BEFORE THE MATCH! That's the main one that counts!
Anyway, enough about that, I think that if LCW can keep steady, he is bound to beat Lin Dan at least 2 out of the next 5 meetings. And remain as world number one.

The before the match one can be calmly analyzed and predicted over a cup of coffee or something,
It's the during the match one that is still giving chong wei the problem.
Misbun able to be by his side and coming up fast enough with cue words can help chong wei

Lose for LD's case doesnt matter, as he has won without Tang there, the other China coaches are good enough. As far as I recall, every time LCW won over LD, Misbun was there. The seems more confident part, body language & manner, same as one of the factors I judge KKK/TBH's 'trend', player's body language on court. We already discussed these stuff bf
With other players, LCW has learnt & gotten used to battling them without his sifu there. LD is still the biggest hurdle.I dont rate highly Tey SB or Rashid Sidek, to me, even with them there, LCW is on his own. Misbun no need talk a lot, just give moral support to LCW with his super cool 'no need panic' look, enough. To give another example : many has attributed Kido/Hendra's success in winning the AG 2010 to Sigit's presence. Oops, wrong thread to discuss this....
Ok, back to LCW being WR#1. Chris@ccc, you can go to BWF site under Historical Ranking, they have the rankings from Jan 2009. According to wikipedia, LCW was WR#1 from Aug 21, 2008.

Lee Chong Wei’s world No.1 status under serious threat

Chong Wei’s world No. 1 status under serious threat
PETALING JAYA: Lee Chong Wei’s three-year reign as the top ranked player in the BWF World Super Series is under serious threat at the All-England, which begins today in Birmingham.
The Malaysian is at the risk of dropping one rung to the No. 2 spot in the Super Series ranking if he fails in the defence of the title and China’s Lin Dan takes the crown.
And with his status and pride at stake, expect a determined Chong Wei to go the extra mile in the championships.
The prestigious All-England is a Premier Super Series event and offers US$350,000 in prize money for the first time.
The rivalry has grown very close between Chong Wei and Lin Dan in the World Super Series with the Malaysian winning the season-opening event at home with Lin Dan closing in by defeating the world No. 1 in the final of the South Korea Open a week later.
In the past, Lin Dan had chosen to skip many of the Super Series tournaments but with BWF making it compulsory for all the top 10 players to compete, the badminton stage has suddenly become more competitive and exciting for the fans.
Barring any upsets, top seed Chong Wei and Lin Dan are expected to clash in the All-England final.
Chong Wei said that he had not lost the fire to win the All-England title for a second time but he would tread with caution on the way he approached his matches.
“Of course, I would like to retain the title but the journey will not be easy.
“I have made mistakes in the past by putting too much pressure on myself from the start,” he said.
“I want to take it one day at a time. It’s getting tougher and tougher every year.”
Following the withdrawal of Japan’s Sho Sasaki, Chong Wei will take on qualifier Brice Leverdez of France in the first round today.
The others in his half of the draw include Indonesians Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Simon Santoso, China’s Bao Chunlai and Chen Long and Denmark’s Peter-Gade Christensen.
Third seed and four-time All-England champion Lin Dan meets veteran Malaysian Wong Choong Hann in the opening round and others in the half of the draw are second seed Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia, Chinese Chen Jin, Wang Zhengming and Du Pengyu, and South Korean Park Sung-hwan.

Lee retains All-England title in classy fashion
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: For the first time, Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei truly felt on top of the world.
Yesterday, Chong Wei showed who was the real boss on the court when he defeated his nemesis, Lin Dan of China, 21-17, 21-17 in a highly-charged 52-minute final to retain the All-England title.
It was a priceless win and an ecstatic Chong Wei slumped to his knees in sheer delight before rising to the thunderous applause of the fans at the National Indoor Arena in Birmingham.
It was the first time that Chong Wei had beaten Lin Dan to win a major title and the record between the two archrivals now stands at 7-18.
With the win, too, Chong Wei reaffirmed his status as the world No. 1 and also hung on to the number one standing in the Super Series rankings.
And Chong Wei also became the first Malaysian to retain the All-England title since Eddy Choong pulled off the feat in 1956 and 1957.
But more importantly, the win yesterday showed that Chong Wei has the ability to come out of Lin Dan’s shadow and be a real challenger for the Olympic gold in London next year.
Lin Dan, gunning for a second consecutive Premier Super Series title after nailing the first in South Korea, got off to a smashing start but it was not too long before Chong Wei got into the groove.
Looking more confident and focused in his approach, Chong Wei piled up the pressure on the three-time world champion, often catching Lin Dan with his clever moves at the net and showing incredible defence to frustrate the Chinese.
They were tied at 8-8 and at one stage Lin Dan was affected by a bad line call and it allowed Chong Wei to pull away to 17-10.
But Lin Dan, who was ironically more interested in playing rallies than using his lethal attacking shots, fought back to 17-18. But that was as far as he went as Chong Wei snapped out of the spell to take the first game.
The second game was even tighter as both tried to outfox each other with their tight net shots and super fast counter attacks until they were tied at 17-17.
Instead of buckling under pressure like he used to before, a cool and composed Chong Wei romped home to take four points in a row to land himself a third title of the year after victories at the Super Series Masters Finals in Taiwan and Malaysia Open in January.
National coach Rashid Sidek hailed Chong Wei’s achievement as a big breakthrough.
“He played a superb game and was able to overcome the psychological barrier against Lin Dan,” he said in a telephone interview.
“He not only handle the challenge from Lin Dan well but he also executed excellent counter attacks to pressure Lin Dan. That to me is a big improvement.
“Today, Lin Dan was making most of the mistakes and he was unable to kill some of Chong Wei’s shots. Chong Wei, on the other hand, maintained a consistent pace.
“Chong Wei has always been criticised for winning the small tournaments. But this time, he defeated Lin Dan for a big one.”
