    It is futile to compare players from two different era. Susanti was basically a stroke player, not very speedy. Will she be able to execute her strokes under the speedy and powerful attacks of present day players. I remember her loosing to attackers like Ye Zhaoying. Using your line of reasoning, Susanti can be easily beaten by Zhang Ning then. Zhang Ning won gold medals in successive Olympics.

    To me, it's only today that LCW showed more vulnerabilities, which means Chen Long's three-match victories over him sometime ago was more impressive than Shon's today in my opinion. Besides, Chen Long did it thrice in a row at a time when nobody except Lin Dan can touch him while Shon did for the first time today in a hard-fought close 3-game encounter, how to compare. Anyway,we shall see as tie goes by. Whatever,never ever write LCW off,too early to do that, he is still a powerful force to reckon with.

    So you think before 2010 LCW was better? Data to support your claim?

    You clearly didn't catch my main concern. Back then, there was no concern regarding his age factor and of course his stamina. Now, let's see, how old is he; almost 30? :rolleyes:

    But Ye lost more to Susi even she had better attack but not mentally strong enough. But when Gong Zhichao arrives, Susi had no chance but to retire.

    For a long time, Women Singles hardly excites me, Ye Zhaoying a little, Xie Xinfang a little, Zhang Ning all-rounder a little, Wang Xin a lot !, Tine Baun a little (despite her inconsistency), Wang Yihan another all-rounder a little less, now Li Xuerui a lot ! The rest past and present are basically stroke players; however consummate their racquet skills, I doubt they can withstand the onslaught of these few scintillating virtuosos,particularly Wang Xin and Li Xuerui at their very best !

    You must be joking She retired from the world badminton circuit not long after her marriage to Alan budikusuma. And she got all the badminton champ including Hall of Fame in 2004 . Nowadays they become successful entrepreneurs :)

    I thought it's the new rule that they need to shake hand with their opponents first. The referee didn't give the Thai pair a yellow card? But well one, this Thai MD is really exciting to watch.
