    Denmark have a clear advantage in the two remaining singles, I suppose. Better for Malaysia to win the MD now.

    Because of his consistency, LCW always gives you the feel that its harder to beat him compared to vs LD.

    It is so unfortunate that Mogensen couldn't play in this tournament due to his illness.

    I don't blame everything. I hate a rules for serve. I think 115 cm is too low for badminton's players. It's just my opinion.

    Never knew Goh/Tan had immigrated to TPE in just some minutes.

    Let LCW have some good time. VA, KM and KS already had it.

    I did enthusiastically. Until I read someone's post. :confused:

    But anyway LCW deserved it. He played amazingly well in that match.

    Well, Lin Dan after LOG'12 plays an entirely different game, transformed, more artistic, creative and exquisite strokes in a controlled game of masterclass in his own unique way - graceful, elegant, fluid motion, like, what GC used to say, poetry in motion, joyful to behold.

    But he too can play a more aggressive offensive badminton once in a blue moon when he felt like it or thought it necessary to deal with certain opponents, just like how he did to stun LCW in the All England in March.

    It's not like Lin Dan never played at breakneck speed and fulsome power in the same manner that LCW did just now with Axelsen. The point is how often he can do that round after round , let alone from one tournament to another.

    If this is not LCW's second match of the tournament and that after a day's rest to boot, we probably wouldn't have to wonder if he could do it against a player of Viktor Axelsen's caliber, regardless in two straight sets or three.

    Another point is if you really want to prolong your career, aiming for longevity, trying to play a young man's physical game at your 'ripe old age of 35' , in badminton terms, is simply not a realistic proposition. At the very most, you can pull it off the odd match after careful and much preparation, unleashing it at just the right time and place and against the right opponent while taking into account the whole match and tournament situation. Otherwise, you'd most likely win the battle but lose the war.

    Hmm Goh/Tan won G1, with LOT of luck.
    I hope they don't disappoint in G2.

    The service rule is favoring the shorter players? Tell that to Marcus :D:D

    the problem is everyone including themselves keep reminding them they'd won 14 out of the 17 times and 3 runner's up since 1984 when they first participated.
