    :) And last week when LCW skipped the China Open SuperSeries tournament stage, LCW was afraid of LD?

    I don't think hey are afraid of each other :)

    Lin Dan hinted that he wants less time for badminton and more for family. With a very competitive China Men Singles field, I think he might even not qualify for London 2012 Olympics, there are only 2 slots for China.

    For Lin Dan, he has achieved everything in badminton. Maybe after he has a family, his motivation might be back to his best again

    Yup, dont think they afraid of each other, just LD kind of like to avoid too much clashes with LCW in smaller tournament and be more prepared in the big one.

    Waist injuries

    According to Sina Sports. Lin Dan and Chen Jin both have waist injuries hence decided to withdraw from the tournament. Coach Xia Xuanze stated Lin Dan was not feel well that morning and there was sign of recurring waist injury couples with tireness of recent tournaments hence decided to give up the quarter final competition.

    in the end, no china players reach the final of hong kong men singles. LOL.

    Withdrawing Lin Dan and Chen Jin was a big tactical move indeed.

    Why don't they just play and then lose to LCW ? Are the chinese really that arrogant ? Just to avoid losing their confidence, they prefer to withdraw from the match rather than playing and making LCW more tired in the final? Have some balls for gawd sake. Take defeat in the face.

    LOL... losing to a lower ranked player or worse, close rivals, that's too bitter to accept for them (CHN MS)... so WO was quite a brilliant choice...

    Yes very true, just like LCW, he played instead with some real injuries but people said it was an 'excuse' when lost........

    So, maybe LD and CJ dont want to become like LCW for being accused giving 'excuses' after lost. So they just conceded W/O.

    they get ridiculed either way. so the best is to not fake injuries and not make excuses to begin with.
