    They could opt for Wang Yihan..In my opinion, Wang Yihan is the best player to beat all foreign opponents.

    Yu Yang/Wang Xiaoli are already taken out of context. Walk of shame for their career exit. There's no way of them coming back.

    Congratulations to Lin Dan! This man has nerves of steel, and the will to succeed in the hardest of conditions. He has demonstrated to the world again like he did the the last WC, that the real game at the highest levels, is played in the mind. He has demonstrated again why he is head-and-shoulders above the rest of the pack. Surely, if anyone deserves legendary status over time, it has to be this man.

    Is Lee Chong Wei any less? He came second-best because in a matchup betwen 2 exceptional players, someone has to come out second-best. What made the difference was the one gram of focussed activity in the mind. His only "mistake" was that he played in the era of Lin Dan. I think we have been privileged to have witnessed two legends of the game at their best.

    Thank you, Lin Dan. And thank you, Lee Chong Wei.

    the 2012 mens singles olympic gold medal match

    is one of those rare matches where both players should have won gold.

    just like 2008 wimbledon final.

    That would not have resembled the China flag anymore :p

    On the other hand CY and FHF's should be.

    Aside from LD's exhibitionistic trades, LD is humbles himself and praises LCW coming so far in spite of his ankle injuries. He also said he was very afraid with the way LCW disposed of his colleague Chen Long.

    Lin Dan = The most outstanding player ever that walked the Badminton planet. Simply amazing in every account, his game has very little to no weak spots. Congratulations on wining the Gold all over again in 2012 Olympics!

    I like the part from the interview where LD is asked "How did you manage to hold on to such fearsome opponent, and he replied "I am equally fearsome".
