    LD is arguably the best player in history and you know that. No matter how you read/analyze statistically or technically. LD > LCW.

    I admire your effort in discounting LD at every possible occasion. But you don't have much ground left, LD has taken it ALL.

    Which reminds me of what a politician in Msia advised against certain groups :

    No matter what people say, just remember that 'one plus one is always two' and you wont fall into the trap.

    but datuk is very fortunate to have lived in the same era as super dan. imagine not many ppl wld have chance to play with, let alone challenge de greatest badminton player in history.
    and boleh-ites fans can always give de excuse dat datuk cld achieve so much more if he was playing in different era.

    heh, it may be fortunate for us spectators to watch these epic battles between LD and LCW, but somehow i don't think datuk feels the same ;)

    i dont know about others but the raw data above seem to me to confirm (at least on the surface) certain trends :

    1) Prior to Olympics LD played many SS and even lost in Sudirman and Thomas Cup
    2) After 2008 he concentrated on the big ones and won them losing some SS.

    You could say LD and LCW were exchanging roles prior to 2008.
    Maybe if LD is again chasing 2012, the first cycle may repeat itself.

    Wish there were players in the form of those heroes in computer games, they never get tired or stressed out.

    Looking at the H2H more carefully, a breakdown of the results does not indicate "a more meaningful" trend in terms of winning percentage for LCW since their first matches in 2005. LCW NEVER WON more than 2 matches in a year over Lin Dan.

    LD-LCW
    2005 - 1-1 (LD winning in HKG; LCW winning in Malaysia)
    2006 - 4-1 (LD winning in AE, Macau, Taipei, HKG; LCW winning in Malaysia)
    2007 - 2-2 (LD winning in China Masters & HKG; LCW winning in Japan and Sudirman Cup Glasgow)
    2008 - 3-1 (LD winning in Swiss, China, and Beijing Olympics; LCW winning in Thomas Cup Tokyo)
    2009 - 3-1 (LD winning in AE, Sudirman Cup Guangzhou, and China Masters; LCW winning in Swiss)
    2010 - 2-1 (LD winning in Thomas Cup KL & Guangzhou Asian Games; LCW winning in Japan)

    It seems to me that LCW has a higher odds of winning in Japan (3 matches won there) and not so much on home-ground (only 2 won in Malaysia Open). The other 2 matches won by LCW were in Europe (Swiss & Glasgow).

    Meanwhile, Lin Dan certainly OWNED LCW big time when it comes to the major events:
    2006 - AE
    2008 - Beijing Olympics
    2009 - AE, Sudirman Cup
    2010 - Thomas Cup, Guangzhou Asian Games

    LCW NEVER BEAT Lin Dan in an individual major event, but did beat Lin Dan twice in team events (Sudirman Cup 2007 and Thomas Cup 2008). However, CHN still beat MAS in those team matches.

    Tommy, thanks so much for the research.
    Always can trust you to have comprehensive records of CHN players. And still neatly written in your book as before?

    I totally agree with you. LD is such a lucky bastard, that he has a huge crowd behind him each time, whether on his home turf or not. Poor LCW is surely 10000% better than LD. All LCW lacks is "a lil bit luck" and more die hard fans like you. I am pretty sure LD will never get his place in history, regardless how lucky he can be. LCW will definitely be remembered as the "greatest with a lil bit less luck".

    Let's help LCW, pray harder, talk more, cheer more, and wish him the best of luck. :)

    Those are not very nice words to use to describe a person or any person.

    I'm glad LCW lost to Lin Dan because LCW had no pressure to win, just another expected lost to Lin Dan, his boleh fans will still love him like before because LCW will still be BWF's #1, and LCW will surely win the super series final again this year, and misbun and rashid's job will be ok.

    Wow, If luck is such a major factor in winning or losing, then its no use bothering about

    training, practising, going to school, working ,learning etc.etc.

    Just go to the casino and try one's luck.

    Well said, I personally think that Lin Dan may be taken out by the Koreans in the 2012 Olympics, but who knows :p I really hope he wins though, It was Lin Dan that first inspired me to play badminton.
