    Yes I am so happy to see Wang Yihan making a comeback. Definitely on track for Rio Olympics 2016.

    Actually, LD should have won three Olympic MS titles by now, and possibly the forth by this coming Rio.
    He squandered his first by giving Ronald Susilo the match very early in Athens and if he continues in this form in Rio, he may give away another title to ......?

    Generosity never kills and it pleases the receiver immensely! Thank you LD :)!

    Because lots of people have predicted that Lin Dan will win.

    To be honest

    I am very happy how Lin Dan played in the first two sets. That makes me extremely confident about his chances in Olympics with special preparations coming for Thomas cup and Olympic.

    Personally, I think the original plan of Lin Dan was to win the first set.. Rest and recover in the second..... And then battle With all his might in the third.

    But unfortunately, he learned another lesson today that thinking the job is done. Before it's actually done leads to bad/not what the plan was type of consequences. But again, he was just saving a bit more fuel at the end of the first game.... So, can't really blame him.

    Now that Lin Dan has passed the ball to Chen Long, the latter has to start thinking of his game plan and strategy and other considerations.

    I wonder whether it is a good or bad sign of LCW winning over Lin Dan when Olympics is so close.

    I am worried that he will be burdened as Malaysian will expect him to win in Olympics as he did managed to do so in this tournament.

    Anyway who's the guy with Hendrawan today?

    I think Lee/Yoo pair too strong for the Japanese pair. Yoo has a powerful smash.

    No player has won three consecutive matches against Lin Dan(in the last 10-12 years) Chen long had the opportunity to do so but failed last week.

    Here we go again - Lin Dan lost the 3rd set because
    1. He had already guaged LCW`s game in 1st set.
    2. He wants Chen Long to guage LCW`s game too
    3. He might be protecting himself from injuries.
    4. He wore a black shirt.
    5. His only goal is Olympics.
    6. He had already given the fans what they had come for.
    etc etc etc.

    Lin Dan is still Super Dan he has won 2 Olympics golds. Not like some other countries yet to see their 1st Olympic gold in any discipline for their country.

    Winning more against the toughest hurdles approaching the Rio OG will lend Dato Lee some huge boost of being in the right track and gain some high self-confidence.

    Only time may show us whether or not your worry has any sound foundation or just a wild thought... :)

    China has so many athletes but not in Malaysia. Anyway it is good for LCW to win against Lin Dan in China again where he seems unable to do it in the past except last year. I hope it will boost up his confidence. If he can defeat Lin Dan in China, he should believe that he can do it in Olympics!
