    The highlighted part:

    I just realized that badminton is played outdoor:rolleyes: Or else how is the cold weather supposed to affect an indoor sport unless Korea can not afford a heating system in its stadium(which I doubt).

    BTW, what is "minus zero"??? LCW must not have done well in Math back in his school days.:rolleyes:

    I used the wrong word... not "stadium" but "arena" or a "gym"

    Any indoor gym has heat in a country where winter is cold. I don't think Malaysia needs it since it is hot almost all year long, but other places certainly has it.

    Come to Canada, and see what happens if a gym does not have heating system. You will be frozen in no time.

    Being pedantic, but it should read Canada, except the Lower Mainland, and feel the -20C. :D:D

    Currently 9°C and raining (what else is new :rolleyes:)

    Since badminton is played indoor... it really does not matter how cold the outdoor temperature is, now does it???:confused::confused::confused: Unless the Korea super series is played like the way Western people do "outdoor at a picnic", otherwise how is it supposed to be a challenge for LCW?

    In my opinion, LCW has tons of excuses prior to a tournament and even more if he loses in a tournament. LAME!!!:mad:

    That's one thing that irks me about LCW as well. The conditions are the same for everyone. Just suck it up, shut up and plan, man. Europeans and northern Asians have to play in the sweltering heat of South East Asia but I don't hear their champions whining about it.

    I am not shielding him. Maybe what he meant was coming and leaving the stadium and the changes in the temperature and coming from Malaysia, it's difficult for him.

    Some like it hot, some like it not

    .
    I read it as LCW prefers to play in a warmer condition, than colder. It's a preference, not an excuse. Different players prefer playing in different conditions.

    Currently, we in Melbourne Australia are having very hot conditions. Many top tennis players have arrived here to prepare for our 2010 Australian Open.

    On Monday, 11-Jan-2010, players were practising. Melbourne was at 43 degree C. The court surface temperature was 50+. Tournament organisers thought they would close the roof to make the condition cooler for players practising.

    Serena Williams abandoned her practise session; she couldn't stand the heat. Maria Sharapova continued practising in the hot condition. Roger Federer, on the other hand, requested for the roof to remain opened; he wanted to get used to our extreme heat. :p:p:p

    Therefore, some like it hot, some like it not. Some get affected, some not.

    Perhaps, Nike can buy out LCW's Yonex contract. That will be good for badminton in America. I agree badminton should be promoted aggressively in America.

    Hey bro, long time no see! :)

    I really dont know what to say about all the whining about freezing weather in Korea. These people make it sound like badminton is played outdoor like you said 'a picnic kinda sport' where you tie the net across two trees.

    Yes, find a nice spot overlooking some lush hills, tie the net across two trees, take out some jaffa cakes and cranberry juice ... and *wahla* ... there you have it ... badminton!

    Maybe to accomodate LCW, the Korea Open should be held in his living room instead.

    Dude, arena temperature usually only vary between a few degrees(from room temperature), and it ain't going to make much of a difference.

    Badminton is played indoor WITH TEMPERATURE CONTROL IN ALL ARENAS, and outside temperature has nothing to do with anything, so suck it up and stop making excuses for LCW, he is full of excuses which is lame.:mad:

    Badminton is an international sport

    There are no two ways about it. A true champion will perform no matter what the conditions or opponents.

    Since badminton like tennis, football, F1 etc are all international sports, its participants gotta participate all over the world. Whether it is raining, sunny, freezing etc the show must go on. We dont hear Wayne Rooney whining that it is too cold or wet to play football, do we? Roger Federer dont whinge about having to play in the hot and humid Australian Open or Lewis Hamilton ranting about having to race in the night in Singapore?

    A true champion will deliver no matter what. Is LCW a true champion?
