    Yes, lol, it was as if he meant to fall down to do the push-ups. :)



    The mind is willing but the body is weak. :)

    In my case, the mind is willing, the body is strong but the feet has its own intentions!

    LCW was very sad after his defeat against Lin Dan in 2011 WC final and 2012 OG final, so this time, only this time, I want LCW to win his first ever major title

    Not only LCW was sad.
    Many many more people.
    But after so many times, many people have gotten used to it.

    I really hope LCW wins this time in a thrilling final that truly endorsed his world no. 1 ranking.
    A fitting finale to a truly great career.

    In another WC final again. And yet with the same opponent he lost dearly the last time they met. Will LCW get it right this time? Will he able to nick it again this time? Well,well, well....

    With LD not training and competing for so long since his OG win, this is Datuk's best and perhaps last chance at winning a big event from LD. This will be a nail biter.

    hmmm.... tomorrow's final might just typify what LCW's whole career has been like....

    final of a major against his nemesis .... only one outcome...

    for fans not wanting to see a repeat of the asian games'10 final in the same venue last time(one sided LD win) ..... they might want to stay away from this match......

    expect LD to be in full gear.... and games such as 21-9 or 21-7 might just happen tomorrow.... with full crowd behind him and fresh legs having rested 9 months before this tournament... LCW should fear the worst....

    Had to lol at 'rested 9 months' :D Resting more than 3 days will already decrease your fitness...
    Anyhow, scores of 7 and 9 are really, really unlikely. LD has shown he is prepared, but so has LCW. It might not go to 3 games but it will be tight and hard-fought.

    It doesn't matter what the outcome will be .... LCW has already shown how committed he is to nail a major title as per the Olympics and Worlds.

    That he was born in the same period as Lin Dan, is probably his only drawback. Nothing LCW could do about that.

    Then again, Lin Dan would not be so great if LCW did not impose a great challenge ...... so kudos to both players for still being able to make another date 3 years running to fight for the 2013 Big One.
