Could it not be 'why lcw only lost to Lin dan?'
Anyway, what you said maybe true, for the time being
Let's see what happens in the following months going by bwf rules, who is actually made of steel
Lcw has only one player to beat and tonight he came close
Whereas Lin Dan has to skip 3 tournaments to challenge lcw for that
Let's see if he still has that fast to heal injury in the months to come,
And for that, he still has a string of players coming very close to beating him

The Korean Open : It wasn't a fair playing field. Lin Dan has the fit and handsome Xia Xuanze coaching him. On LCW's side, a fat chubby guy. Who the hell is that fatty anyway? LCW probably lost out on tactics... He was up there with LD on speed and power... Send the chubby guy to MDs and get Misbun back.

Even if Misbun sidek is there, i don't think it will make much difference.
Btw, that fat guy is Teh Siu Bock

Lin Dan = 独孤求败 ,Lee ChongWei = 一人之下，万人之上

On my personal point of view, the one with lesser predictable shots held an slight advantage as the other couldn't capitalized (anticipate) on where the opponent is sending the shuttle to. I can provide a couple of LCW's habitual shots which is the cross-court net shot and the punch-lob which LD clearly took full advantage of. LCW could use the punch-lob on slower players but not on an always on-position LD that replied with a stinging side line smashes. The other is LD's superior ability in his attack which punishes any of LCW 3/4 court lifts.
Anyway like I said the difference between these two great players are very marginal nowadays and it all boils down to who is fresher on match day.

No doubt about it, both are great champions. I believe both LD and LCW knows that they are way ahead of the other players. But LCW always gives 100% no matter who he plays, but LD is kind of relax a little bit against other players, but knows he has to give 100% against LCW. Watching them play is like a mind games, they both play cautiously and wait for the other player to make mistake to score a point. So it's all mentally, I think LD just has a slight edge in this category. The rest should be very even.

The reality is LCW wasn't good enough on the day. The reason for that is tactics. Misbun's tactics even if employed during the early stages of the game would have be useless because Xuanxe would have found a way to neutralize it by the 3rd game. It's a game of anticipation and tactics. They plan 3-4 shots ahead to move each other out of position for the kill. Although LCW is good tactically, another calm head sitting outside the court can shift the balance.. I repeat a calm head, not a fat head thinking about MDs all the time (hahaha.. just joking TSB)
LCW is actually good enough to come up with his own game plan. I think Misbun is not a factor here. LCW can actually go solo in my opinion, but he's loyal. I believe that Misbun DID give him tips before the match![/QUOTE]

Misbun couldn't help LCW those many times before, why suddenly could he have been a factor?
That being said, LD was missing the calming presence of Tang Xianghu too.

Frankly, they were quite evenly matched, LCW has improved on his net play not as many half court returns for LD to kill.
However, he went for too many cross court net returns, LD can read that already (i.e. the matchpoint winner) after 1-2 times, should have played like end of the 1st set, and most of 2nd set in which he gave LD a hard time with spinning straight (not cross court) net shots, forcing LD to lift more.Sometimes you get lucky in your netshots, which he did get a few. Going cross-court netshots against players like LD is too risky because he is so quick to pounce.
He was also putting pressure on LD with shooting lobs to his backhand, LD was scrambling to cover space with his overhead, opening up room for LCW to attack, wonder why he didn't do that more often in the rubber.
The other thing is his bad judgement of a few baseline shots in which he erroneously let go when it landed clearly in.
Perhaps it sent a message to LD that LCW's confidence is dropping and it happened at such crucial time, end of rubber set..Mentally LD was winning, that's why he romped home scoring 6 successive points.

Because LCW do not have that kind of aura like LD, in Chinese we call it 霸气.
李终委 will forever be inferior to LD.

The margin between defeat and success is small.
I might would agree if the question from this thread been asked 5 years ago, however, regardless how far the head to head victory of LD against Datuk LCW now, their recent meetings has been more interesting than before since there is very little to seperate between them and eventhough a defeat will still be a defeat, its not an easy win anymore for LD against Datuk LCW since the margin between sucess and defeat is small when they are lock horns and this what happened in the recently concluded Korea Open 2011. Therefore, Datuk LCW is no inferior by any measurements as far as he is fighting LD is concern since he has the qualities to beat him with the similar probability of chances as what LD has now.

agree with you
and the small difference is in the head... literally!
