Lin Dan whitewashed LCW
Since Lin Dan defeated LCW in this year's Sudirman cup match in the exact same scoreline as the match he lost to LCW in this year's Swiss open, this thread is a MUST, in respond to this thread here
Here is the proper analysis:
For the great analyst we are, we saw it coming. It had to happen once Lin Dan settles his game and plays patiently.
LCW has never been and never will be invincible. Lin Dan is now ready to live up to his world best player status.

..I didn't watch the match & it's not the same scoreline but it seems like whenever it's do or die, when it matters most, LD always finds a way to take everything in a business style...While LCW seems to wilt..

Lcw have no answer to lindans tactics. Mentally Lin Dan was full of confidence.

Once again, Lee Chong Wei has faltered when playing on the big stage.
Is he destined to win only at the fairground, and never at the arena?

lee chong wei is weak mentally...can't get past Lin Dan!

this is so unfair. both played brilliant badminton most of the time. the only difference was LD had engaged another gear at critical moments which is his hallmark. LCW is the only player that can push LD and match him some of the time. just imagine if not for LCW, MS will be so dull and boring. LCW is still one of the best.

We just need to agree that Lin Dan had whitewashed him today, in this game.
Of course he can win over lin Dan, like what happened in Swiss, but it is unlikely to happen again if he couldn't handle criticisms and come back stronger. And he need to remember that 27 millions people stand still, behind him.

I can see Lin dan often controls the whole game everytime he play against lee chong wei

i think whitewashed is a bit too strong.
only LCW is able to engage LD in this game of chess. only the two of them have such fast and precise court coverage and shot variation. they together can push the quality of the rallies up one notch in the tactical and psychological level.
not even Taufik is able to do that. Taufik game is much more simple, net net jumpsmash jumpsmash.
LCW lost, as Alan mentioned, because he was not able to make decisive point at decisive time counts. LD can. LD at 16 or so point decides that enough is enough, step up a gear and went home with it. LCW have no response and kept wondering why LD isn't playing the same chess game anymore. when he figured out it was well beyond 21 points already.
so credit should go to both players, but more so to LD.

Tonight LD was more patient and persistent at the net, and LCW was missing some of his accuracy at both the net and the sideline.
At the times when LD lost his patience momentarily (during 2nd game just before interval), LCW came back but it seemed like LCW was only happy to draw level but not to regain the initiative. Some shot decisions when he was holding the advantage during the rally was off the mark and allowed LD to recover.

what is that non-sense about white wash, if you are going to win in a best of 3 match, it will be either 2-0 or 2-1. what is the big deal? a proper white wash will be 21-0, 21-0 that i cant see it happen for the NSS.
