    Maybe because he (TH) doesn't have much left to prove to anyone?

    Also, in the very early part of his career he was much more demonstrative, and I think his coaches believed he was losing his mojo/focus/energy/core-centering too often because of this. So they probably told him to practise more visualization and bring on a calmness when he steps out to play. That helps him to remain, as some players call it, "in a bubble." I believe he alluded to something like this in one of his interviews.

    He may not yell after winning a point, but he does often pump his fist when he wins a hard fought rally.

    Yes, and after he wins a match, he doesn't get into contortions, or do an imitation of a fish out of water...

    Yeah! I remember the China Masters 2008 when Taufik got a questionable line call in his favour and a few points later he went on the win the match. He had a huge laugh and was enjoying the whole turnaround at 22-20, even trying to get Hafiz to see the lighter side of it. And Hafiz was like, "dude, it ain't that funny!" LOL.

    Heh, that was like 9 yrs ago... I'm sure he's mellowed out since then...
    Especially since he punched the wrong guy and probably settled out of court with some $$$
