    He probably got confused by the fact that this is a LCW thread and didn't expect a LD essay

    Avid Badminton lovers will know all the rallies, but still an awesome compilation of LCW's best moments.

    Any news of when LCW is coming back, his first tournament planned ? I understand his protected ranking points is coming to an end soon.

    Oh dear, I just checked, his latest WR has dropped to 190 !

    His last tournament was Indonesia Open. As the next big tournament will start after the expiration of 2018 Indonesia Open points, LCW will be effectively removed from world ranking. Crazy!

    I just used google translate, with the highlights being:
    • Lee Chong Wei, is about to retire next week.
    • He will make an announcement after meeting with his coaches.
    • Under the advice of his doctor, he must maintain a relaxed mood and avoid stress, to avoid recurrence (of the cancer).
    Very sad to hear if that's the case, but it would be for the best.

    Might sound sad for fans now, but I think it could benefit him, not only regarding his health but also his legacy. I mean, look what's happening to Lin Dan right now. I'd rather remember LCW beating the youngster and No. 1 Momota before retiring in a thrilling final than him going out like Taufik or Lin Dan.

    Meh, Taufik is nothing compared to Lin Dan.
    If LD managed to qualify to Tokyo 2020 he will break another record though. Sad LCW won't be around in the circuit anymore.

    Chong Wei still hasn't made up mind on retirement, asks to be given space

    [​IMG]
    PETALING JAYA: Lee Chong Wei says he still hasn't made up his mind on retirement just yet.

    The 36-year-old shuttler pleaded with all parties to give him some space as he contemplates his next move after his career was curtailed by nose cancer.

    Chong Wei, a three-time Olympic silver medallist, has assured everyone that he will announce his retirement when the time is right.

    "No, no. There's no decision made yet," Chong Wei told StarSport Friday (June 7).


    "Just because I've been absent from training, everyone is trying to speculate.

    "I have yet to discuss with BAM about it (his intention to hang up his racquet). Before that meeting takes place, nothing is certain yet.

    "If I'm indeed retiring or there's other decisions made, I'll inform the press on my own. No one speaks on my behalf," he said.

    Chong Wei has not played in any tournament since he was diagnosed with nose cancer in July last year.

    Chong Wei has also not been training since he last took a break in late April to travel to Taiwan for his follow-up consultation with the doctors.

    Before that, the three-time Olympic silver medallist had been training regularly three days a week.

    He was cleared from nose cancer in November. He resumed training in early January and spent the first few weeks in the gym to work on his fitness.

    Our beloved Datuk Lee Chong Wei is not retiring........not yet.....

    Nevertheless, regardless even if this is Datuk current stand, this doesn't mean BAM and other players inside the MS camp can relax but should take it as an early reminder that they should work even harder to collectively take the responsibility to ensure that Malaysian flag and name still echo on the podium onced that huge void has been emptied by the retirement of Datuk.

    Hoping for the best... Even though I definitely understand his health condition, I really want to watch him play for a little longer.. Who cares if he isn't going to play at his peak? Who cares if he doesn't retire at his peak? In the first place I personally never doubt his abilities to still be able to oust any of the top 10 players given some time..

    If he trained 2 hrs x3/week between januari and april and since april 0 hrs x0/week, then the prognosis for a comeback is not looking good :(
