Thread: Why is LCW inferior to LD?
02-06-2011, 12:55 PM #52
You can't dispute the facts. Here are the facts.
The Korean guy who's beaten LD a few times is Park Sung Hwan. He does not have a winning record against LD. In fact, no one has a winning record against LD. This info was research by "freelast" in the threat below. This info speaks of it's self.
Nope, I couldn't make the trip to Korea because I was busy making some Maggi mee minutes before the match. I watched the match anyway from home. It was a close match because of the following obvious reasons :
1. LCW has improved and played a hell of a match.
2. LD only started to smash during the closing stages of each set. Although I don't have the stats to back this up, those who watched the match would agree that LD wins 90% of the time he attacks. That's why LD always takes racks up multiple points quickly during the closing stages of the match. He didn't choose a more defensive strategy to conserve energy, but to practice his strokes. If you doubt LD's stamina, you've got to watch LD's older matches when he first came out to the scene.
3. You see LD using the backhand so many times.. and almost every time to LCW's forehand. Why? .. So that he can practice his defense!
My theory is LD is trying to build another dimension to his game. What better way to do it than to test it out against the next best player in the world - LCW. If LCW gets close, just smash a few to get some easy points.
Ok.. it's a controversial theory. Eh, it's only my take on the subject. If Wikileaks hacked into Yong Boo's computer, we'll see the truth.. For now the truth will remain hidden in the x-files..
LCW also test strokes against lesser opponents.... but that's another story... (*credits*)
Hope you picked up a tip or two "WINK".. Now back to my maggi mee.

however, in the case of LCW vs. LD, there are many more sample points so that give more weight to the conclusion drawn.

so low profile i even forgot his name earlier but he has the best h2h record with ld-1:0
So is ld inferior to him the day he lost?
Nah..play 10 times ld would whack him 10 times
H2h is just a record of matches played between 2 players and as kwun mentioned,
there many sample points to give more weight to our conclusion drawn
Here, lcw/ld case is quite different, we should only use their last 5 meetings
and their overall last 5 performances in tournaments (2nd sample)
In this case, lcw is still world no.1, nobody can dispute this pure hard fact
But you may ask why lost to ld this time, hell for me I also ask that same question
As for ld, where were him in the last 5 tournaments?
and for this I will consider 'facts' so can't agree with you using h2h can determine lcw is inferior to ld
Anyway, maggi mee over tv with egg is good, it won't choke

Please, let s not be conned by the H2H.
There have been so many occasions when LD felt not good enough to match LCW he opted to withdraw or give away the match to his teammate. LD will ensure that the H2H remains in his favour by playing this cowardly game.
So why don t we put things in perspective by starting an unofficial H2H. Every time LD gifts a walkover or match to his teammate when he s on course to play LCW, count it as a win for LCW.
So for 2011 to date, unofficial H2H for LD:LCW is 0:2
When you review the past few years, there must be at least 6 or 7 occasions this happened . I may be wrong so it will be great if someone can verify the total.
Would be quite illuminating discovery.

it is very amusing to read how far datuk's fans will write to justify that
a) datuk only lose to super dan bcos of mental strength
b) datuk is just a step away from beating lin dan after each crushing loss.
in korean open final, it is very clear that super dan was in control of the match the whole time. whenever he steps up to attack, it is surely a point.
more devastatingly, super dan can match datuk point for point even when he is trying out the new dimension to his game, the patient rally.
this certainly proves that super dan is truly a badminton genius. he just keeps on perfecting his game even though he is already invincible.
datuk is also a very good player, and some say malaysia's 3rd best singles player after rashid sidek and tan aik huang.
with his skills and strengths, easily he can become world champion, all-england champion, asian games gold IF super dan doesn't exist or comes years earlier or later.
such a tragedy.
each time miss boon 'thought' that he's got super dan figured out, super dan easily outfox them and made them look like fools.

tan aik huang....
Btw nice name you have there, administrator but don't I know you from somewhere ?

LCW must be unofficially the best MS ever,
olympics champion, twice at least,
asian champion, twice again,
world champion, lets say 3 times, unofficially, and of course
all england, must be at least 5-6 times easily.
thomas and sudirman cup, well just too many to mention, unofficially of course.

apart from the AE because of the history and the player's home t'ment are important to them, all the others are just as i said 'bread and butter', nice to have but no big deal.
now, we have the 5 premier SS that may change thing a bit but we have to wait and see.
