    The problem is LD has the firepower, explosiveness, and overall stroke deception which can penetrate LCW's defenses, unlike KJ, PG, and JP. LCW really lacks the power in his smash, and also the explosiveness to get himself into an offensive position (notice how LD's smashes almost come out of nowhere and LCW isn't prepared to block them, but LD is always ready when LCW wants to do a smash).

    Unfortunately, it's Chong Wei who ended up with more mistakes.



    Aw, come on -- Taufik does much more than that
    TH's backhands look cool

Some shot decisions when he was holding the advantage during the rally was off the mark and allowed LD to recover.
    well, at such high level, it's all about mental and energy management. Thx god that the NSS to 21 still allow game tactical and not all about 100% dash to the finish line.

    read post #1, bananakid was just borrowing this whitewash phrase from the bolehians.

    problem is, when lcw lost, some say misbun was there (OG), and won when misbun wasn't there (09 Swiss open). Maybe it's seasonal dependent too

    i have said before, LD is generous, he would allow his lesser opponents some breathing room. Only time he wasn't generous was the 08 OG

    LD wants to win so much when playing against LCW, I can see that he gives his very best. He does not look down on LCW and take things lightly...
    in the post game interview, ld said he respect lcw highly. He doesnt take the win for granted when playing against lcw.

    If he gets too beefy, he won't be able to fully outstretch his arm.

    He will only be good for backhand serving..

    Totally agree...

    but it is always the fans not feeling comfortable on such and always try to twist the reality in the forum...
