    I think they never met before.
    So as LD suddenly missed in AE 2010 (or 2011??) and Tago came up to final, there was a question what should be if LD should stay in tournament and play with Tago.
    From then we dodnt see much of Tago despite he is usually somewhere at the net during a year. But no finals more.
    What do you think before tomorrow?

    it really depends on whether LD wants to meet LCW or not. if he does, then he will play hard.

    if he doesn't then he will lose no matter what.

    LCW has to win first. If CL wins, then LD will certainly progress, because Tago can really hurt CL as proven in earlier meetings.

    the problem (for LD) is that the FO strategically scheduled LD vs. Tago match before LCW/CL. so LD won't know who wins when he plays against Tago.

    LD won't take any chances and eliminate Tago with a one shot kill

    Did he really look that stunning in his last two matches? I only saw bits of each, but it seemed that he would turn up the juice when he had to, but be very sloppy at times. Not meaning to criticize since he is a great player, but lack of intensity looked "un-champion" like.

    I think sloppy sums it up. He mixes moments of brilliance with moments where he completely loses it. Also not sure about his shot selection at certain moments. Consistency is what he needs right now.

    The earlier matches featuring Tago-CL were at a time when CL was a different, more tentative player. CL has evolved tremendously since. I don't think he would fear Tago any more. But first, there's the little matter of CL geting past another, lesser-known player called LCW. :p

    As for the KT-LD match, Tago holds an unblemished record against left-handers, in particular against lefties from China. He has never lost to any. Who's to say he won't maintain that record? He's a crazy kid: it all depends which part of his brain the bees are buzzing in when he steps on court. :p

    I'm not sure what else to say about the LD withdrawal fiasco. CBA has found another way to bring disrepute to a new level and screw the fans. From what I have read, LD could have swatted KT aside with impunity yet was instructed to "entertain" the crowd, and even more incredibly, pull the plug on the verge on victory. BULLSHYTE

    BWF, do you know what balls are? Obviously not, you ain't got none.

    Retired.
    What? Hit with the shuttleCOCK to the gro.n? So accurate? Pardon me for guessing. I didn't watch the match.

    You are just so great. How did you know it was going to be one shot??

    Sorry, madbad, thought you were saying Tago to eliminate LD with a one shot kill. My mistake.
