LCW should take more rest
This is true, isn't it? LCW should take more rest.
LCW has scored such a big difference in the WR points compared to the others.
It is time for him to compete in fewer tournaments.
Just look at the BWF WR positions (released yesterday, 24-Sep-2009):
#1 Lee Chong Wei (MAS) ........... 80,371.06 points
#2 Lin Dan (CHN) ...................... 69,944.58 points
#3 Chen Jin (CHN) .................... 66,620.00 points
#4 Peter Gade (DEN) ................. 66,195.18 points
#5 Taufik Hidayat (INA) .............. 63,680.00 points
#6 Park Sung Hwan (KOR) ......... 53,326.67 points
#7 Boonsak Ponsana (THA) ........ 48,771.75 points
#8 Tien Minh Nguyen (VIE) ......... 47,490.00 points
#9 Joachim Persson (DEN) ......... 46,410.49 points
#10 Wong Choong Hann (MAS) ... 46,340.00 points

First, the group that are always negatives about LCW ... I just want to say YES! YES! YES! Datuk got no big trophy or major titles like Olympic gold. But at 27 years old he is already set for life. He gots money in the bank and from a close sources, he is already a millionaire. Well, how many 27 year old guy do you know that is already independent financially?? Nothing personals here, but I bet there are many of you who are still living with ur parents . So ... so what if LCW got no big trophy??? He is set for life.
As for the second group who will resort to anything to defend LCW ... you peoples realli need to get a life. You people need to have the maturity to accept facts and when anyone say LCW got no big titles, respond with maturity rather than with warped logic or wild accusations.
... and for this second group, just because I say LCW is not good enough to win big titles, I am not your boogeyman, Permuda. Dont make yourself look stupid. If facts are given, be mature enough to accept it.
For the 1st & 2nd group, it is embarassing for others to see how Malaysians carry themselves here. I dont come to this forum often but when I do, I find Malaysians are embarrassing themself here. I am a regular at redcafe under the same nick. You people all should see how people post there instead! What is so heated about LCW badminton or who he is dating or what he has won or not win??? Should look at the LCW breakup with WMC thread ... shy lah. People breaking up in relationships is something normal la in life.
Lastly, thank for those who send me pm about Permuda's threads. I read quite a few. Great stuff!
Maybe some of you people not happy with what I say? Ok, I dont hide behind computer monitor, you can pm to meet or come find me at BBBS @thurs (around 7.30pm), we can settle stuff old fashion style ... a game of badminton (singles) also can or we can either put on some gloves or go bare knuckles.

Sorry Limsy...I just meant to 'bug' you
[quote=ctjcad;1260870]..OTB, she's not a waitress but an air stewardess lah...
Yeah, air stewardess is a high class expression for air waitress but selectively based on appearance, build, pretty face, etc...not the type of waitress you find at pasar malam who impatiently ask you and can't wait to get away fast like "oi mut yeah-ah" (what do you want?)
..remember your thread??..if LCW starts to participate in less and less and more selective tourneys, how long will his WR#1 last??..
....and his RM45K bonus cheque and also, less participation means less winning US20K cheque. Again, it is a business, except that the investment capital came from courtesy of BAM and MAS tax-payers

Yeah, now Misbun can say, 'See, I told the doctors bf CHina Masters, but they gave the all clear.' Seems Misbun's "gerak hati"(intuition) is more accurate than doctor's report.
If last year Yonex's persuasion can cause just-out-of-hospital Taufik to show face at SS Finals, then LCW cannot do less, show face & wear the new outfit lor.

The replies are so juicy... I would like to thank bananakid for bringing us such great entertainment.
I still remember Misbun said, ".... girls....., but what did CW do? Training..."
09-25-2009, 01:05 PM #43
..Dato LCW just announced that he will be skipping more tourneys; and possibly not participate in any more tourneys for the rest of the yr...
In effect, this thread might be the only entertainment left since LCW won't be entertaining us on court..

LCW is getting smarter. He knows that his recent form is not good enough to win any tournament in the NEAR FUTURE even at the GP gold level. After being defeated by Sony, Lin Dan, and Simon recently, any further defeat in future tournament will only destroy whatever little bit of confidence he has left.
What can be a better reason(excuse) for skipping tournaments than bring up "old injury"??? Remember that LCW won the French SS back in 2007 with the same knee injury without dropping a set? But that was 2007 when he was still young... now 2009, he is older, he is going downhill, and he doesn't want the world to know that he is vulnerable until he can somehow find a new trick or two.
Want proof, you say? Remember the 1st round in the Japan open this year where LCW thrashed Boonsak in 2 straight easy sets, but then when he lost to Simon the next round, suddenly the knee pain showed up. Talk about coincidence, or is it just pure bad luck for this poor fella... or should I say poor Boonsak probably wished LCW would felt his knee pain just 1 day earlier.
The lack of Boleh fans in the future tournaments may be another reason why LCW thinks is a better choice for him to not participate as well. Without the drums, and non-stop screaming of boleh, it will be a huge discount on LCW's confidence especially if he has to play against players who have defeated him recently especially Lin Dan.
It took LCW until May 07 to recover from his slump after world championship 06, so most likely it will take him until May 2010 to recover from his slump this time after his tame defeat in WC09, but that will mean he is going to be 28 years old. I would not put much hope on him doing exceptionally well any more.

"Maybe i should, oh wait, maybe i should not"..tsk, tsk..
"Should i or should...okay, i'll join in"..

LCW is such a liar...
If LCW was so hurt that he wanted to give up during the 3rd set, then since knee pain is supposed to only worsen up as the match prolongs, can anyone explains to me how LCW could catch up to 19-19 in the 3rd set, when he was 11-3 down??? It simply amuses me how bad of a lair he can be ... or Simon must have fell some pain in his knees as well, to allow an already hurt LCW to collect 16 points out of 24 points played. Or is simon just a generous person?

But please bare in mind......'the God' dont need LCW to retired to be WR1...
he can do it himselve..........by attending more Tourneys..
And I think its no problem for LCW to be out of WR1........
1. BAM is going to review their policy, soon will be no more incentives for WR1....
2. Less pressure for LCW if he's not WR1....
