    Cannot la... WMC will slap him left and right. Even if he can play. The knees will be weak. Let misbun train up a new champion from now on lah. LCW can always share his experience with others. However, he can still try a shot on all the other tournaments which he hasn't won. His bank savings will be 'woot woot' then...can retire. His next offspring also dont need to work.:D:D:D:D

    the right thing

    seriously, this is the best match lin dan has ever displayed
    besides the pete gade in 2005 world championships.

    LIN DAN ISNT HUMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!
    he play as if his controlling a puppet. his smashes are
    too powerful, his speed is too fast. his skill? equally as good as lee chong wei and his netting improve to the max today.

    Yeah at that moment I was like "Ahh it's finally over :( Poooor Lee Chong Wei". But then I saw LYB and for once he seemed really genuinely happy for his player (not for himself), it was all about Lin Dan today :). There was no sort of macho superiority stuff. Very human, very sensitive. And I felt happy for LYB for the first time ever :D haha.

    But I felt incredibly sorry for LCW on the podium... he couldn't even muster a smile (even though you could see him trying). Must have a planet sized lump in his throat :(.

    best..

    can agree with you. however, people like Zhao Jian Hua, Yang Yang, Morten Frost, Taufik, Liem Swee King, Alan Budi will argue for it.:D

    Oh one more thing, things aren't so bad for Lee Chong Wei, he's RM300,000 richer, which is about.....$89,605 USD. Now you know Wong Mew Choo is not gonna dump him.

    Errrr, as silver medalist, LCW gets the lump sum RM300,000 and pension of hmmm at least RM1,000 a month, whole life.:D Forgot the figures.

    Misbun can know shape & whip TCS, CWF, Arif, etc to take up the challenge
