    ok I has seen a match as well.
    So - an answer is "nothing". LCW currently doesnt lack something, he is just weaker. The score is showing as it was hard for LD, but a game itself - no))
    LCW played much better than in 2008, and 2 straight stupid mistakes at 19:17 are showing a lot of drama inside. But it seems even without those mistakes LD was able to win the first set

    LD is simply one step ahead in class. He rarely made unforced errors, has killer smashes, quick and very consistent. He is a machine!!!

    LCW in the other hand plays beautifully but prone to errors in big matches.

    This is a result when you have 7 world class sparring partners and 4 mental trainers :)

    Anyway in the Olympic 2008 finals LD reminds me to an Energizer TV advertisement. The match was like alkaline batt vs. normal batt... :)

    No doubt that LD is the most complete player on the planet. It is also no doubt that China did the match-fixing in so many tournaments. With LD's strength, they do not need to do this. Shame on LYB. Also shame on some of the Chinese media, they like to misinterpret some of the news, e.g. Rashid's comment on match-fixing. They also always omit the Head to Head data of Sudirman cup and Thomas cup since BWF does not have this data in their database.

    What LCW needed is a bit of luck to get a couple of good and squarely won matches against LD. I do believe that there is not much difference between them both technically and tactically. LCW just needed that extra bit of luck to get over that mental block that he can beat LD. May be then we will have better matches between the top 2 players at the moment. I was at the AE last week, LCW just does not has the confident nor conviction that he can win, unfortunately.

    Yup! agree!!!! and he himself had admitted that when he enter the court LCW got afraid of felling toward LD. So the point is clear when you afraid of someone in match you had lost 30%:eek:

    Luck - When he's able to utilize LD's unforce errors, and play his game on his own.
    That's the only way to beat LinDan, that's the luck we hoped for him.

    well, LD has that 5% extra in talent and confidence. Assuming that both are at top form.

    Agree on the mental weakness part. I guess he'll just have to wait for lindan to get a bad day or moodless to beat him. Another possibilities is for LD to have tough opponents all the way.

    Am sure LCW will get the chance to get some wins. LD is still a human.;)

    LOL... where do you find these images? They seem to fit perfectly into your posts each and every time.


    Back to topic... Lee Chong Wei lacks a coach that can give him an analysis of his game (with assumptions of what if blur, blur, blur) like X Ball. That way, LCW will no doubt have more fake confidence when he has to play in any major tournament.

    You should analyse how LD won or lost finals.The times when he lost finals were when he had a tough SF or when his opponent had an easier or same level type of SF.The times he won titles were when he had a CHN MS waiting for him in the SF or Final.When he had a CHN MS waiting in the SF,he just strolled into the final.
    It's most important for LD to be fresher than his non-CHN opponents in the final. If he's equally or less fresh,he's likely to lose.Check his history. The pattern is unmistakeable.
    Why do you think CJ had to retire in SF? Do you think CJ would retire even if injured if he were playing LCW and LD's in the other SF? CJ would fight to death for sure in the name of patriotism.
    When LYB has to arrange for a truncated SF (just like in HKO), he's indirectly saying LCW is superior to LD, that's why LD needed some padding to 'play safe' or maximise chances of winning.If I were LCW,I would be imbued with special confidence knowing that's what LYB thinks.
    (There is a key difference between the SF in this AE and the HKO.It's in the crowd.The HKO crowd booed the unsporting CHN MS.The AE crowd just accepted it, blind as bats.)
    Why else do you think LYB has to constantly make such arrangements? And only when LD's opponent is LCW and no one else? Do you know when LCW beat LD?That's when they were both equally fresh.SC,TC, JO(and not counting the ones in MAS).In fact,in JO,SC and TC,LCW thrashed LD because LD collapsed mentally.
    A LD mental collapse can happen anytime.It's a matter of time.

    I would not put the blame on this for the LCW's final lost.It's not intelligent.
    LCW had pretty smooth journey all to finals, (well, i expected it to be different with taufik's game), thus, it's pretty fair for Chong Wei.
    he has to be responsible for his own lost, not anyone else.

    That's the phrase i'd like to put as an argument to oppose
    "Ld is unbeatable"

    lol, u r still so blur.
    LD won.ie, China won.

    By your account, isn't it was CJ TRUE patristism that u said CJ followed LYB's game plan to fold it in for LD?? Now u ask CJ to fight on in the name patriotism. U r confusing the hell out of us.

    Wow ! Chen Jin is very wounded ! Less than one week after his abandon against Lin Dan, Chen Jin is playing at the Swiss Open and beat easily Bao Chun Lai and then Dicky Palayama. No, no, no, chinese team is very fair in badminton...
