    really pleased with what LCW has shown.

    But anything can happen during OG. cannot be too confident.

    I am sure LCW knows that as well.

    It's got to do with being clinical on court, use the strategy & kill off opponents mercilessly. Misbun have mentioned a couple of times (since 2007 when LCW came back under him) that LCW needs to be clinical & NOT too nice guy. Means dont give chance at all.
    In matches that LCW had lost (AE 2008, Swiss 2008), comments were that he was too passive, allowing opponents to control the game.

    It's good to see this clinical side coming up during TC finals & SO finals with Simon S. Even though LCw was leading Simon by a wide margin, he didnt take it easy.

    The win does give him more confidence ahead of the Olympic Games.
    Despite having won over SS in such a hugh margin,at the end of the match LCW was still smiling,pad and gave SS a word of encouragement(I suppose).That showed that he didn't look down to his opponent.Kudos to him.:)

    On reflection, I just realise it may not be easy to score more than 10 points each for 2 games against LCW. To compensate for the fact that LCW play less intense badminton against non-opponents,the criterion needs to be refined as follows:
    Band A:10+ points each in at least 2 games
    PG 31
    Band B:10+ points in just 1 game
    Sho S 33
    WCH 30
    Simon S 18
    Band C: 10+ points in 0 game
    JP 16
    So indications now would be:
    PG>Sho S>WCH>Simon S>JP

    cant consider like this ler...it depend on how he thought about his opponent...if he start the engin start from the bigining of match and didnt underestimate his opponenets(sho s,wch)...he should play better...
