    As expected, Lin Dan marches on, beating Bao Chunlai 21-14, 21-14 comfortably.

    Why you think LD would lose it? He wants to win AE badly and he's better than BCL and CJ for real.

    What's the problem? Didn't someone say whoever wins AE , won't win OG08?
    But CJ deserve the win. He played very well.Even his netplay was surprisingly good;not many but probably 100% effective.
    LCW probably made the mistake of taking it easy,thinking if I can't take him out in 2, well I can in 3 games.So when CJ played better than expected,his lack of preparations was evident.And with NSS,that can prove costly.
    The other thing he has to bear in mind is to mentally allow for 2 or 3 poor calls but he's getting better at handling and hopefully by OG08, he will be desensitized to it.In AE, the poor calls were not blatant;just line judges probably suffering from geriatric vision and AE too polite to reject them as volunteers.Of course the umpires would be too polite to overrule.(The bad call against KOR MD was the most shocking;luckily they won.)
    But LCW did not seem too upset about the loss.There are many good lessons he can learn from today.

    Seems like the "whoever beats Taufik will lose in the next round" theory is proving true. xD Was quite a boring match LCW vs CJ...

    Ah, don't be so anti-LD. LD is indeed making history. Considering the fact that competition is tougher nowadays, and players from all over the world are competing (China did not attend during Rudi's time and it's pretty clear that if TSF and HJC are competing, there is no way Rudy can get 8 titles).

    Oh, there is another guy above LD still, Morten Frost, with 8 consecutive AE finals and 4 titles. LD so far has 5 consecutive AE finals and 3.5 titles. If tomorrow's match is not fixed, I would say LD has 3.99 titles now. :D

    Stranger and more disgusting things have come from the Chinese management team, so like Forrest Gump's mama says... life is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get next............ although you could argue the tactics employed by the Chinese management, the drama, the agony is all laughable beyond comprehension by the normal sane homosapiens.
    LMAO at another walk out today, what an absolute disgraceful joke...

    CJ played better for sure and improved a lot. LCW was way off with many errors, which he normally would not make, very strange :confused:

    Are you that tape-worm inside LCW's intestine? Is that why you sound like you are "HIM", and you are the reason why LCW is so skinny?:eek:
