I share your sorrows ...:crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::crying::crying:
Well another incentive for JOJ is that he has to please his new sponsor Yonex!
But I still put my faith in LCW.
LCW says that he's injured and low on confidence.
Is he really struggling with his hamstring? Or is he just saying that to the media to take pressure off of himself?
I have a feeling its more the latter. If he was really injured, he wouldn't want to let his opponents know that, right?
I'm inclined to agree with you, I think it's more psychological than anything. He's having the jitters before the big one, not for the first time, it could be a smokescreen, who knows except himself and those close to him. Whatever it is, we'll know the truth soon.
Top-ranked Lee battling injury ahead of world c'ships

(REUTERS) - World badminton's No. 1 player Lee Chong Wei has revealed that injury concerns are leaving him low on confidence ahead of the World Championships in Denmark at the end of the month.
The Malaysian was unable to defend his Commonwealth Games title in Scotland last month owing to a hamstring injury and although he is back in training, he admitted to not being on top of his game.
"My mind is willing but my body is giving me trouble," he told the Malaysian Star. "I am 80 per cent better but every day is a struggle for me to psych myself up in training. My mood fluctuates. I get very upset when my legs give way when I try to push myself.
"I am beginning to feel the heat as it draws closer to the World Championships."
(Will LCW be destroyed by his own negative mental condition?)
^^ In the above post it has mentioned that Tago has withdrawn due to injury this year...if so this will be very unfortunate for him, and CL's way to the final will be almost clear.
Loh, you know that LCW is just following LD's use of a smokescreen tactic to minimize undue pressure placed on him, right?
Wow, if Tago withdraws, that really opens the door for Chen Long. No excuse for him not to make the final.
LCW can win it if he can get past Santoso and Chen Long.
I'm afraid he may be a victim of self-prophecy.
You're a stockbroker... Let me tell you what is self prophecy... Whatever stocks I buy always goes down... So if I want LCW to win, I'll need to bet on CL and Santoso ...
I need to learn from you.
It is confirmed
"the Badminton World Federation (BWF) confirmed fourth seed Tago’s pullout due to an injury. As the draw has been made, there will be no replacement."
:LCW has one strong rival less to handle!
Now JOJ must not tango with Tago!
Indonesia's Santoso to miss badminton world championships
AFP News – 10 hours ago
Simon Santoso of Indonesia returns a shot against Du Pengyu of China during the OUE …
Indonesia's Simon Santoso will miss next week's badminton world championships due to dengue fever, badminton's governing body said Tuesday.
Santoso's last-minute entry into the competition to be held from August 25-31 in Copenhagen, Denmark, had been expected to pose a challenge to world number one Lee Chong Wei's quest for his maiden title.
But Santoso's bid for the men's singles crown has been frustrated as he has been hospitalised after falling ill Monday, the Badminton World Federation said in a statement.
Dengue fever is a mosquito-borne disease that is common in the tropics and can be fatal. Symptoms include nausea, headache and severe muscle and joint pain.
Men's doubles defending champions Mohammad Ahsan and Hendra Setiawan will also miss the championships as Ahsan's lower back pain has gotten worse, the federation said.
"It's a disaster for us –- what can I say. We are leaving on Thursday morning and we have no choice (but to withdraw them). They cannot play," Bambang Roedyanto of the Badminton Association of Indonesia said.
Indonesia's defending mixed doubles pair, Tontowi Ahmad and Liliyana Natsir, withdrew earlier due to Ahmad's ankle injury.
Returning from an injury lay-off, Malaysia's Lee is preparing for the championships though he is still feeling some pain in his thigh, national coach Tey Seu Bock was quoted by the New Straits Times on Tuesday as saying.
Lee missed the recent Glasgow Commonwealth Games due to the thigh injury, which has troubled the star for months.
It would seem the way is open for LCW to capture his first WC title.
Not unless JOJ and CL are able to play above themselves.
Seems like ratchanok did not withdraw. She is going to denmark as per her instagram?!!!!!!!!. Is this news correct?
