    James: at first I was going to disagree with what you posted but upon re-reading, more carefully, I agree; Lin Dan isn't very good at being a "superman", but he is very good at being ranked # 1. :p

    Only time will tell how much longer Lin Dan can sustain his super speed style. I bet not too much longer. I bet he'll still be a top player but he will have to improve his all around game (which he is doing) so he doesn't have to rely on his super speed all the time.

    Maybe soon, LD can win a few points the easy way, by drop shot instead of jump smash or diving all over the place making unbelievable saves. :eek: :p :D

    well, lin dan doesnt like his nickname very much though he may be proud when he first got it as a honor.
    i think it is not that serious for discussing the name;)

    everyone has his own advantage, as for lin dan, speed and power are his strongpoints so he endeavor to enhance them to be his vital weapons.
    on the otherwise, his weakness is very obvious which was exposed totally in the wc finals.
    maybe he wont become a perfect player but he should insist his own style, learn everything may result in losing yourself

    anyway, i fancy lin dan is a top player at this time, not the toppest coz diligence cant replace genius absolutely:p

    taufik has a excellent backhand, not everyone can use that skill so well...
    as long as you present your best, that is pretty good and has no regret:)

    Yes, it's the best in the business; at least from what I have seen so far. Any in history have a comparable/better backhand?

    Agree. Taufik's backhand is the most complete I have ever seen.
    Actually, I have seen quite a few of his games, and I think his had not
    shown such complete backhand techs until this year. I don't know
    that is my illusion or he really changed his backhand style this year.

    He has had the backhand as perfect as ever since he won his first tournament at 15 (brunei open). Even then people said it was the best in the business.

    Genjyo sums it up perfectly, dilligence cannot compete with absolute genius.

    It is true that you shouldn't play a backhand unless you absolutely have to. With the right footwork you should be able to play a round the head shot quite easily. The reason that the backhand is frowned upon is because it takes a lot more time, allowing your opponent more time to recover. Also the range of shots most people can play, including the top players in th world, is far more limited on the backhand.

    Also hitting a round-of-head consumes more energy... :)

    That's what I usually do to avoid the backhand but sometimes I'm just exposed. I always try to play people better than me. As a result they make me hit shots I don't normally want to hit. :p

    Offtopic, but the backhand has allowed to cover the court better because now that I can hit it, I dont have to be so conscious about protecting my backhand corner. And those annoying low lifts down my backhand side.

    Maybe it's a gentic thing or out of lack of training (or neglect)..... but watching the WC. All the chinese players even the women go round the houses (as the say it chinese) rather use their backhand. Even when my dad, when he was training us when we were young, will show us and tell us to do the same thing..... 15 years on and nothing seems to change. Why is that ?

    Also I never knew hitting round the head requires and consumes more energy....must get more coaching for backhand from brother :crying:

    Players evolve. While they are young, they tend to be interested in speed and power games. As they get older, they change their game accordingly. I think they simply try to bank on what they can do now and figure the rest out later. :D

    It seems like at least a couple of indonesian players have good backhands. I've seen Sigit do backhand smashes that surprised the opponent, and of course, Taufik has an awesome backhand.

    Although one has fewer choices available when using the backhand, using it can be surprising to an opponent.
