    Ran out of stamina. So many errors now from Lakshya sen.
    Need to build lower body strength.

    That's the problem against LD. He can use only 70 % the whole time. Even if you win the first set you need supreme stamina right to the end to seal the deal. He's used to much higher pace. He can play this slow rallying game for hours.

    The way Lin Dan toying with his opponent can be a little hilarious sometime. Even Shi Yuqi was laughing at the back.

    Just change of tactic to minimize lift or clear works like wonder against his opponent.

    Lin Dan has stopped playing for naysayers and neutrals. He said he only plays for his admirers and supporters. Your love move makes me stronger.

    It was not exactly slow, alot of fast twisting moment required as well, more from the opponent though.

    How's the show, enjoyable, entertaining? Just see the gulf in standards between the two, with Lin Dan playing like that yet he gets 21-9 and 21-8 in the second and third sets. Imagine if he gets serious ?

    Lakshya Sen was presented the golden opportunity to catch Lin Dan in one of his listless mood, still he let it get away.

    I wonder how many players won't get one set off Lin Dan playing like that.

    Love how the usual suspects are trying to find excuses for Gideon's neck high serves yet again. He's lucky some umpires still don't have the guts to call him on it every single time he serves :rolleyes:

    Yes, Shi Yuqi and others watching at the stands were having a good laugh, they knew better whilst I guess most spectators were none the wiser.

    Most probably sucking the energy by been a sadist. Many commented on Zhangyu that opponent "被玩死了".

    I believe even Hu Yun, Wei Nan, Sho Sasaki, Marc Zwiebler, Peter Gade, Lee Hyun Il and Lee CW himself would like to know the answer.

    The only excuse I can find is too much sex after the wedding rather than the serve. :p

    I still fail to understand the logic of Xia Xuanze (and perhaps his coaches, Chen Yu and Li Zhifeng also in agreement) getting Lin Dan to play today's match, he really didn't have to.

    Well, we are fortunate enough to once again get to witness how the one and only Lin Dan at age 34 going 35 still able to play masterclass badminton of technical wizardry without relying on the kind of raw speed and power that typifies the young guns, his opponent today being less than half his age at 16.

    Team CHN Thomas Cup get to rest tomorrow...hmm...I see.

    For Team CHN Uber Cup's face-off with Team INA tomorrow, the three CHN WS fielded are Chen Yufei, Gao Fangjie and Li Xuerui.

    Good,He Bingjiao is not needed anymore, thank goodness, the more so at the knockout stage.

    For me, it is good practise match for Lin Dan especially to play the last 2 games with minimize lifting and clear.Just feeling a little sad for the young guy at the end of the game, he looks really dejected.

    A little sad for HBJ though. A lot of awful remarks about her weight by some Chinese.
