    The great one knows how to push themselves and becoming even greater. There's always greater goal waiting in the horizon. Look at Tiger Woods, he has won pretty much everything in golf, but do you think he'll be quitting anytime soon?

    as any pro athletes, he/she should try to do his best in any tournaments, especially the highest profiled sport event like the OG. Are athletes now only try hard when money is involved? Some people already knock LD for not winning at asian game (individual event, he won the team event) which is a much lower profile sport event than the OG.

    It's also about commercial endorsements.The moment he quits, his endorsement deals would also start to dry up or the commercial lifespan shortened.That's probably why Agassi played on till the age of 35, even though his body looked quite broken much earlier before that.

    Too bad he can't qualify for the Super Series Finals this year (need to participate in 7 or 8 super series I think). He rested too much after the Olympics lol

    LOL, it doesn't matter to LD.
    He can start at any seeding position. Why worry when he can beat them all:confused: It's like arguing over where to seat on the titanic, IT DOESN'T MATTER, they are ALL GOING DOWN. Be like water, LD is the water LOLOLOL (and cooler is the iceberg kekeke lol)
