    Lin Dan (20 yrs) as MS1 (once again, MS1 not MS2) played all 5 matches and won all of them!

    consider CHN haven't strong MD, so there was a heavy pressure on LD.
    a do or die match. if he lose, most probably CHN was trail 0-2. it's the end!
    if that's the case, CHN can say goodbye for the title, and they must wait for another 2 yrs!

    but, in the end, Lin Dan proved to the world that HE IS THE BEST IN THE WORLD! HE IS THE REAL WORLD #1 WITHOUT HELPS FROM BWF!

    Not that i am pro-chinese, but I have to agree with Winston_T responses, and personal attack would just shows the immature side of a person. As this is clearly a debate on badminton, not a personal issue. i am surprise moderators here don't do aything about it. I think the only way Winston_T wouldn't strongly defense on the chinese team is when all the chinese players fail miserably in the tournament, which i doubt it would happen in near future, quite honestly.

    LD did win the World Championships in KL last year, although most of his major rivals went down too early in that tournament. Indeed he continues the long line of consistency laid down by his predecessors in the 80s and early 90s, Han Jian/Luan Jin and Yang Yang/Zhao Jianhua.

    INA beat MAS 3-0 in '94. I remember that, the Senayan crowd was so excitable after the victory, after waiting 10 years. MAS had to pick up their runnersup medal in the dressing room.

    I'm rooting for a Indonesia-Malaysia finals...
    However, if Malaysia dosen't make it, I'm going for Indonesia to win over China. We Southeast Asians have to unite!

    But BC forums will be a much livelier place if Indo-Malaysia finals were to take place...

    After reviewing the BWF rules again, teams have to field players according to rankings... So the Malaysian team will be:
    Lee Chong Wei
    Wong Choong Hann
    Hafiz Hashim
    Koo/Tan
    Choong/Lee

    ...which mounts a credible enough challenge really, but due to the see-saw nature of Malaysian players, no one can say for sure. Still, Malaysia has (or some might argue, was) always considered to be strong in team competitions. How did Foo Kok Keong defeat Ardy, when Foo never even won an encounter?

    I thought both Winston_T and Clely researched and responded well to my opinion.LD has often complained about the humidity in Spore,as a hint to his lack of success here.How do questions begging answers turn out as personal attack?
    Winston_T can withstand anyone.Don't worry about him.

    Frankly, I don't think it's just humidity. Maybe the crowd has something to do with it. Southeast Asia remains the strongest bastion where China is heavily challenged. And this is not just down to players.

    Even in, ahem, more neutral Singapore, you can see that the crowd would always root for the player facing Lin Dan, last year the support given to Boonsak was so huge. I know, I was there .......

    Which is why sometimes I am critical with Chen Jin and Bao Chunlai. Given their talent, they are not consistent enough to reduce pressure on Lin Dan. As strong as Lin Dan is, if he goes down, the rest of the squad is left in doubt. Credit to him that it rarely happens ......

    actually, except for LD, i don't think most of the top players actually fear the other CHN MS players too much. BCL, CJ and CY are very good players, but with LD, there's definitely an element of Fear Factor involved.

    It'll also depend on the state of the Chinese MD. INA, MAS & KOR are more than capable of taking both points from the doubles section, putting even more pressure to Chinese singles....

    If only LCW can be fielded as 2nd single, I think China will have one heck of a time against MAS.

    I am surprised either that Winston_T attacked INA players and INA as a country from the beginning...wondering whats his purpose to join the forum...especially start attacking some of us as anti china with no reasons...I am wondering why Mod did not take any actions too...:rolleyes:

    Ditto. I've seen some member going beserk just because some post that deemed "disrespectful" toward China/Chinese. Winston_T has in many times insulted INA and INA players. Why is this allowed to happen?

    You should have seen the posts he has had deleted!!


    Seriously, if a member has a strong opinion which you deem to be rude, please refrain from being rude back. I know it is hard, but it is best.
