Everyone wants to beat Lindan, but only 2 of them have been successed. Bao CL has been trying that for 10+ years, actually Bao did pretty good, he did upset Lin Dan to steal the the world youth championship although Bao had never been better than Lin dan. But all people think now Bao was better than Lin Dan when they were teenagers, because people just live in that one snapshot. People don't care Lin dan actually beat Bao CL all the other time when they were juniors. Taufik was another succesfful example, his performance was never comparable to Lin Dan. But he managed to steal the OG and WC. Then he became the player who can win whenever he wants to. Therefore for Lee CW, the best strategy is not to fight seriously with Lin Dan at each tournament, he should learn from Bao CL and Taufik, not even want to win those matches. Just try to steal a title at OG or WC, (those smaller scaled tournaments are much easier to steal a victory), then make a snapshot, let the whole history frozen at that point, then he will become another player of winning as long as he wants to. For Chen Jin, it's clear that his strategy is to wait Lindan's retirement. That's practical for him, but not fit for Lee CW.
