A shuttlecock can only be altered to make it either slower or faster, relative to its earlier speed, by making the diameter of the shuttlecock feathers smaller or larger. Some call it tipping the end feathers, inwards for increasing speed and outwards for slowing it down, which corresponds to making the diameter smaller and larger, respectively. This type of tempering is highly visible.
Another method is to decrease or increase the diameter of the cork/base, but this is done only at the production stage and is impossible for players on court to do.
More likely for players to "cheat" is to break a feather, without being seen, for the sole objective of changing to a new shuttlecock. This used to be done in days of old but is not seen today because of video recording.

not to speed it up.
for the record...
I watched the show live with a former World Chinese Men Single Champion. The 70 year old man came to the same the same conclusion as I did.
Tasted like milk, looks like milk... but something just not right... Tainted Milk Victory?
You decide for yourself.

Thank you for showing the other side of the story.
No doubt Chen Jin was the better player of the Day. Taufik has not been the better player for a long time as he's way past his prime.
Do top class players need to resort to such tactics... especially when thay are equal or superior to their opponent on that day???

CJ played a very well planned game with grreat defends and minimum unforced error.............
Credit to CJ and his coaches.............

Modifying the shuttle speed forces to play on the physical. Might have been an advantage for CJ though idk if he thought so. The worst kind of cheat is prolly the one when the guy says he is not ready just after you did a flick serve he did not anticipate. No big deal anyway.

Whoah, regarding CHen jin was cheating or not already made ppl debate about it till 7 pages long.!

I do not deny that your points are valid.
There is no instances that I can 'catch CJ redhanded' in the act of manipulating the shuttle.
Only the difference of how the 1st and 2nd set was played out. Having said that... It does not mean that the entire part of the 1st set was shuttle manipulation.
There may be instances where an attacking game was intended so shuttle was not slowed and etc.
No solid proof. Only my observation and belief.

This is not in my culture giving attention to such details. I try not to provoke any conflict with my opponent.
