I dont know why people are taking swipes at LCW saying hes mentally weak and fails on the big stage..... #1 Its Lin Dan. His playing style is aggressive attacking at a very high pace. When he feels under pressure or wants to extend his lead he will inject even more pace into the match.
#2 Lee Chong Wei plays the total opposite. He is very steady and patient. very defensive and relys more or less on mistakes from the opposition to gain himself points.
The 2 different styles clash and attacking speed is almost always going to beat a slower steady defensive game.

LD was playing well and LCW was a bit flustered (may the loud home crowd was a factor).
I say LD would have to be concerned with LCW in the World Championship in Hyderabad - it will not be home ground anymore.
I expect another reversal by LCW - just as he did in the SWISS Open.

To me it's simple. LD was faster than LCW on that day. That's why he was patient etc etc throughout the match. On the contrary, LD was slower than LCW in Swiss final, and we all saw his frustration.
On the other hand, I think in AE final the two were similar in term of speed, but LD's confidence and maturity played an important role at crucial moments.

LCW lost the moment he stepped out to court, intimidated somewhat I am sure. The guy has to develop his own charisma, being the humble guy is no longer the way to show confidence. I feel in many ways his humble approach is not good for him -- it does not strike fear in your opponents. If I were him, I would don myself with spikes to courtside to match LD. Now that would give me lots of confidence.

LD is not as super as he is.....he is good only when playing in China and countries with non-tropical climate...
Once he has to play in tropical countries like Southeast Asia [Ina, malaysia, Singapore, Thailand], he tends to withdraw from competing...

First of all, the thread title is Lin Dan whitewashed LCW, and whether Lin Dan plays or withdraws from competing in any part of the world has nothing to do with Lin Dan thrashing LCW once again.
Second, Lin Dan won 2007 World championship that was held in Malaysia, Thailand open 2008, and he won all his matches in Thomas cup 2004 which was held in Indonesia.
After all that time of hibernation, may be you should do some research before you come back and try to discredit Lin Dan to put over your hero Taufik.

No... let's put it this way... do you even know what you are talking about?
Since when has Malaysia(WC07), Indonesia(TC04), and Thailand(open 08) all of a sudden becomes a "China-friendly" environment now, when you just said Lin Dan hates to play in those places in your previous post?
I just realized that Taufik was injured(may be mentally injured after all his losses) or absent from OG 08 as well
