    from what you are implying, Boonsak's coach is a tactician. that's why Boonsak won. LCW follows Misbun's strategy during matches. LCW lost can be due to Misbun's wrong strategy or he himself is not following the strategy. which one do you think??
    LCW can go far if he has the right coach. LCW has no problem with his skills. the problem comes during crucial stages of every match. Misbun should improve on that aspect.
    Wong Tat Meng did a good job in WCH and YKB. at least now, other players are performing rather than LCW alone.

    happy to see that YKB is trying to put in a fight.. but i dun thinkn its enough.. his attacking power is just now there.. his skills i must say its good.. or maybe i think what mas players are lacking of is fitness.. they just cant cope up in the crucial stages and this may give extra advantage to the opponent....

    the strange thing is, he never won big matches in straight sets. he always drag to rubber set. too bad he lost to bao chun lai. anyway, bao chun lai is good and there is no blame on YKB.

    LCW's career revival will depend on today's match against Bao. if LCW wins, this is a good sign for the upcoming WC.

    I rate LCW chances at 40% because BCL is especially good when he is in form. BCL's height will also be a huge advantage as well.

    However, I do agree there is a spring now in LCW's game. His cutting edge is back, but I think he should put on a few kilos. The boy is a little skinny, dont you think so?

    Misbun should put the boy on an intensive weight and muscle gain program.

    He used to be skinny but now he's more sinewy if you see him in person. Only his face is skinny. I don't know about the weight program but his frame probably give him the advantage in speed.He's no. 1 in speed.Why lose that? It's an awesome weapon.

    A little more weight and muscles will give him more power in his game. In today's singles, you cant just depend on speed alone. The new scoring system favours attacking play. And if you have power in your attacks, you will have more advantage.

    LCW physique shape is better this time. he looks more masculine and fitter. diet control is important. continue improving, LCW.

    i think badminton players should be a bit on the skinny side. with good muscle tone that is. and LCW seems to have that. though the current scoring system might favour attacking game, i still believe speed and tactic plays a bigger role if not the same as power. since using a lot of power throughout the match will result in drainage of energy. so speed and tactic will play a crucial role. i guess LCW transition period after changing coach has finally come to a conclusion. like tiger woods whose form dropped a bit when he decided to change his swing, LCW might have been going through the same thing when he changes coach and untimately his style of play. :D hopefully better days to come for lee chong wei.

    Power is great to see but is no use if it's not effective (ie converts into points) Boonsak showed that his smash is not powerful but effective because of quick timing and clever placement.
    What do you think of LCW's smashes against BCL? (He did not depend on speed alone)
