In any rate..
I re-watched the MS Semifinal match between LinDan vs. LCW, in its entirety, and i must say, the only difference in that match was LinDan's execution or the way he was able to control the tempo & shots, whenever he wants to do so. LCW, on the other hand, seemed to be just reacting to LD's shots, at least most of the time. In the instances LCW was able to get quick points were when he controlled the shots and tempo; unfortunately, they were far few and in between. Also, in some instances, LCW showed little patience and that costed him a few errors.
Overall, it was a pretty good match w/lots of very interesting rallies.
Btw, i notice a couple of very close calls in that match, which if not mistaken occurred in the 2nd game. One of which, a line call from LCW's smash which i thought landed out but was given in favor of LCW, was really questionable.

So, if MJ never won a NBA final game 7 in MSG (in NYC, which to most basketball player, is the heaven for the sports), then MJ is not as great?
LCW surely have no worry about playing in CHN. Because CHN as well as many other places, he can not win anyway. So, what's the difference.
If Jakarta is really that important, then where there no "All Jakarta", and let it simply replace "All England" or WC? So, Jakarta is that much of a disadvantage for others, are you trying to say that TH's glory is actually "so so", because he has much better of a home court than others?
Whether LYB is really chickened out abut INA or MAS is not important. As long as when he and LD do want to participate, they do win most of the time. They have enough collections of WC, AE, OG, TC, SC, UC (women team, of course), and no need to be too crazy about another ordinary SS title, like Swiss Open.
Not like someothers, have to "shot gun" all the events, can come back empty handed 99% of the time when it counts. Or, a Swiss Open title worth a national celerbration.

1. The weather is COLD (harder for players to maintain max capacity as the muscles take longer to warm up and faster to cool down)
2. The crowd is COLD (harder for player to play to their max capacity as the crowd is not cheering behind the players all the times)
3. The prize and title is COOL (how many badminton players in the world can claim they are All England Champions, which I think is pretty COOL)
4. The food is COOL / COLD (personally I don't know why the food is even considered as a factor for the prestige of any competition. Maybe after LCW's "food posioning" incident, it is now a important factor to consider. As the elder Chinese always say "Avoid cold food, it will easily upset your stomach")

Errrr... This is the 1st time I heard that the SS titles over take the likes of AE, WC or OG...
Follow your logic, the NFL champion should not be determined by super bowl, but how many W from Green Bay (-20'C weather during a good portion of the season), due to its weather and well known tough fan base...
Then, NBA should cancel the finals, and let the champ to be determined by W from Phily and Detroit, for it's well know fan base and hostile environment...
Well, well, well...
