I'm surprised Chen Hong also has a pretty good record against LCW
China miss a player like Chen Hong dearly in the absences of LD. CJ and BCL are just not at the same level CH was....
Even Chen yu was 3-3
I always believed CY was a much better player than his little achievements showed...
I take a quote for long ago comparing CJ with CY.... from Jamesd20
Firstly Chen Yu Vs Chen Jin. I am not sure whether Chen Jin's and Chen Yu rise is due to the lowering level of the remaining field and the new CHN players after XXZ/Chen Hong retirements, but they are both quality players in their own right. Technique wise and speed wise they are very similar, but Chen Yu has a definite edge in stroke play. Chen Jin is a hard worker, but is often chasing the game as he Strokes are not as penetrative as other players. Once Chen Yu had weathered the storm in the first game Chen Jin was easier meet. If chen Jin is to become as good as his predecessors, then he needs to devleopment some more skill at the net, and some more flair into his play.

back in 2004 OG, that was lin dan's first biggie tournament, stage fright is normal. Your hero Taufik failed in his first OG attempt too. On his 2nd OG at 2004, taufik was lucky, he didn't face any chinese players but have to face an one eyed shon in the final.
in 2006 AG, lin dan had beaten and won over taufik twice in during the AG, Lin dan got bored of beating up taufik for the 3rd time, he kept the same tactic which taufik exploited. I say Taufik was lucky again because lin dan didn't plan or care to change his tactic. Lin dan woke up too late.*yawn* If a rubber occur, taufik is a goner.
Too bad you can't change this but try to go around it but still failed.
major title head to head
lin dan (100%) : lee chong wei (zippo)

What I don't understand is why people use Head to Head like some hallowed magic number.
HtH is supposed to indicate advantage or probability historically. Unless LD meets LCW at least 7 more times and LCW wins all, the HtH will remain in LD's favour.
However if you go into the details and look at win/lose trend, both now take turns to win so the HtH is unreliable for betting. So if do HtH for 2008, then 2009, then 2010, you'll see a more meaningful trend that is useful.
But I'm glad LD won the AG. Would be more terrible for him if he didn't.

Which reminds me of what a politician in Msia advised against certain groups :
No matter what people say, just remember that 'one plus one is always two' and you wont fall into the trap.

I have just posted their rankings in another thread;

1) Prior to Olympics LD played many SS and even lost in Sudirman and Thomas Cup
2) After 2008 he concentrated on the big ones and won them losing some SS.
You could say LD and LCW were exchanging roles prior to 2008.
Maybe if LD is again chasing 2012, the first cycle may repeat itself.
Wish there were players in the form of those heroes in computer games, they never get tired or stressed out.

2005 - 1-1 (LD winning in HKG; LCW winning in Malaysia)
2006 - 4-1 (LD winning in AE, Macau, Taipei, HKG; LCW winning in Malaysia)
2007 - 2-2 (LD winning in China Masters & HKG; LCW winning in Japan and Sudirman Cup Glasgow)
2008 - 3-1 (LD winning in Swiss, China, and Beijing Olympics; LCW winning in Thomas Cup Tokyo)
2009 - 3-1 (LD winning in AE, Sudirman Cup Guangzhou, and China Masters; LCW winning in Swiss)
2010 - 2-1 (LD winning in Thomas Cup KL & Guangzhou Asian Games; LCW winning in Japan)
It seems to me that LCW has a higher odds of winning in Japan (3 matches won there) and not so much on home-ground (only 2 won in Malaysia Open). The other 2 matches won by LCW were in Europe (Swiss & Glasgow).
Meanwhile, Lin Dan certainly OWNED LCW big time when it comes to the major events:
2006 - AE
2008 - Beijing Olympics
2009 - AE, Sudirman Cup
2010 - Thomas Cup, Guangzhou Asian Games
LCW NEVER BEAT Lin Dan in an individual major event, but did beat Lin Dan twice in team events (Sudirman Cup 2007 and Thomas Cup 2008). However, CHN still beat MAS in those team matches.
