Hi, I am not quite agreed with what you said. 1) first, LD did get diarrhea the first day in Singapore, so he's not in good form, he struggled a lot to beat SS, PG whom LD just cruised with no effort at Sudirman cup. We all know that this is his 4th WO in 7 months. In the Super Series, He only didn't WO in the Korea Premier and All England. It's very hard for me to believe this. The reason he gave is that he drank some cold water (during/after?) the match agains Simon. 2) so I think, (which is just I think) LD's afraid of losing to CJ in the final, that's the reason he w.o. If he was able to take down Simon and Peter in good form, I don't see why he couldn't win CJ as well. 3) It's definitely not the reason for CJ to gain points. If CJ needed points, he would easily gain huge points by playing 1 or 2 in sudirman cup. According to China's performance in Sudirman cup, apart from their WD, none of others appeared to be the sure-win point except LD in MS. Their WS lost a couple of games in this year's Sudirman cup too. In XD, Korean, Indonesian and Danes were all quite competitive as well. Therefore, it was not CJ did not need the points, it was that the China team dared not to use him. 4) it's not for helping CJ. I don't think LD trying to help other players, especially teammates, any players, their teammates are their biggest competitors. That's purely because BWF rules allowing 2 or 3 max players from the same country in world championship and olympics. Look at the MS's trend in the past year, LD's (or China's) biggest competitor is no one but Lee Chong Wei. Winning only a silver medal in Olympics is a failure to China team. Therefore, they REALLY need to have 3 players in London Olympics. CJ, CL and BCL all are capable of making it into at least quarter-finals or even semi-finals. What LYB want to see is a China-China match in semi-finals or 3 China players and LCW in semi-finals. Do you still remember what happened in WS semi-finals in Athens 2004 Olympics? They have admitted that Zhou Mi was ORDERED to lose to Zhang Ning. Another example would be Sydney 2000 WS, Gong Zhi Chao vs Ye Zhao Ying? and Beijing 2008 Lin Dan vs Chen Jin? 5) I don't quite get it. 6) LD wo several times to different players, including NTM (not even a Chinese player), CL and CJ. I found out most of time, the reason is fear. LD's afraid of losing, so he choose to WO. Sometimes, he's afraid of losing to the current opponent, sometimes, he's afraid of losing to the next round opponents. I don't think so. Do you still remember Malaysia SS 2011? LD WO and in Korean Premier, he appeared fit and in good shape to beat LCW in three sets in MS final. Hmmmmmmmmm..
