Lin Dan was so "perfect" in the first-set of the Asian Games FINAL that Lee Chong Wei needed to work very hard to earn every single point. There was NOTHING...practically NOTHING that LCW did in the first set work for him. And yet to repeat, LCW was not exactly that bad either....he was also trying his best, which was sadly not enough to counter LD's almost flawless moves.
LCW was able to win the second set quite easily I would say as Lin Dan started to make mistakes. But, that situation was turned again in the third-set when a pumped up LD raced ahead so quickly that LCW didn't exactly know what hit him during those few minutes that led LD have such a huge advantage at 11-1 during the interval! It was game over by then!
SO, to sum up, LCW was not playing that badly (as compared to his even more tragic loss at the Beijing Olympics). But you can definitely observe that LD was still quicker than him and made less unforced errors when it mattered most!

That's obvious. Sure there will be a lot of see saw battles in future.
To even out the odds it must be accepted that no one player can win everything in the calender,
there has to be realistic targets.
The next barrier might be playing ability,Han Jian once said , it is very difficult to change a player's style,
old habits die young, they have to be trained from young.
LCW has improved by leaps and bounds in power ,anticipation etc etc but still loses out in terms of speed and execution to China players.
I'm sure the coaching committee can continue to work sth out, but so can China's, that's what keeps the game interesting,you would expect China to always keep one step ahead now that the sport is so big in China,surpassing TT where they compete among themselves.
But what the heck he is still no.1 ranked, which is not bad.
I dont know about you guys but I think Chen Long will be the one to eventually take over from LD.

Yes, but the 3X WC qualified him to be among the ranks of Zhuang Tze Dong and Li Fu Rong !
