    It's hard and accurate but not as steep as Lin Dan or Chen Long.

    That's why I say it's important for Chen Long to play LCW more often, to keep him on his toes and get more familiar with LCW's game to avoid surprises.

    I can agree with that.

    a totally different game when against LD and against CL.

    LD is a tricky player and brings out the trickiness in LCW.

    but againt CL, a much more straightforward game for both players.

    My intuition tells me LCW will take this match. Chen Long is not allowed to attack as much as he can, reduced to passivity too often, and that's bad for him.

    Chen Long is feeling the heat, LCW still playing freely.

    CL still has a babyface, but overall he has matured a lot in appearance.

    Chen Long wrongly assuming the shot is won.

    LCW made that look so casual.

    I think LCW is very satisfied with his win over Lin Dan yesterday, now he's just letting himself go without pressure, and it's good for him. Most of the pressure of the burden of expectation is on Chen Long instead, and it shows.

    Still no glimpse of peak LCW from London 2012 when he destroyed CL but hopefully enough to gain back his confidence.

    Mistake again from Chen Long, the match is slipping away from him.

    CL is really frustrated with himself.

    Uncharacteristic of Chen Long to make those errors

    Chen Long wasn't at his best in LOG'12, not a good indication.
