Given how this is going, lock it out to cool heads would be a good thing.

Ld last point
Does anybody realize that Lin Dan's last winning point in the Korea Open against Lee Chong Wei was like winning a tennis rally where the player who first commits himself or rushes to the front of the net takes a huge risk in an effort to block a strong back/forehand from his opponent who is playing far away from the net.
This happens in tennis often but I hardly see it in badminton. It is risky in tennis because the person who rushes to the front has to be very certain that he can block his opponents returning shot. In badminton however, the person who rushes to the front usually has an advantage having read his opponents earlier shot that is rather weak. However only a very fast player like Lin Dan can manage to take these risks otherwise you might be chasing the shuttle back to your side's baseline of the court if your opponent manages to return your blocking shot. Lin Dan might have introduced a new way to win a point in badminton that is very similar to tennis

Actually it is nothing new,it was already employed by Han Jian when he beat LSK in the 1982 Thomas Cup Finals.
In History of China badminton HJ gave a detailed account on how he used this tactic to pip LSK.

This showed LD know LCW game very well to take the risk. LCW playing too many tournaments is overexposing himself for the china team to analysing and coming out with new ways to overcome whatever new tactics LCW is using.
Could be also why LD seemed to avoid meeting 'newer' version of LCW for a time before finally playing him.

Or could it be you are trying to show us that you know a lot more than us here in BC that there are certain topics that we couldn't see through that should not be discussed that only you can tell.

So far injury is not an issue to them. Not sure about the "fake" ones.

I am not here to bolster any ego, a lot of these tactics have been discussed by coaches on TV for ages and probably on other web-sites.
Its true to say that without LCW there will be no LD,without Wong Choon Han no Xia Xuan Ze or without Liem Swie King no Han Jian, because
the rivalry brings out the devil in them.
In future meetings there will be wins and losses and each win will probably be narrow with a new tactic or mixture,if you think its all about fitness you are entitled to your views and good for you.
As to the question of coaches losing their jobs, do people have to read things literally, it is merely a figure of speech, a metaphor if you will. If you dont like my views just ignore my comments just like many others, after all do I challenge your views?

Isn't it already well known that opponents know KKK & TBH's game and can read them well like a book?
Posts 141 & 143 for eg.have nothing personal in them.
