    congrats to LHI on the win, but i will kindly disagree with the first statement. what LD has accomplished, how he has come back from Malaysia 2006 by beating LCW 3 consecutive times, and winning WC2006 clearly shows that LD is not unstable but most likely much more stable than LHI.

    please don't forget, LD is human ;)

    oh sorry regarding that, let me clarify.. stable as in he doesn't do wild shots like LD, he isn't a risk taking player.. he does his usual basic stuff or you can say plain boring stuff :D

    All I have to say about the match was, thank god I don't have any heart problem or I might faint. :) .. Never expected him to beat Lin dan, now I know that LCW was beaten by an improved LHI. Congrats to LHI and to the korean team - respect.

    Seriously. I don't see what is the big deal why LD lost to LHI. LHI is very proficient in all aspects of the game.

    How about we just say LD lost because LHI played better this time?

    Isn't that enough? :rolleyes:

    It should be. :)

    What comes up.. must go down someday. We also cannot expect Lindan to stay up forever. Even Superman have to land.

    The best has yet to come as Lin Dan did make such comment later :
    林丹说,“没事,等我半决赛再修理他(李铉一)。”
    Tranlate to "No matter, I will fix him(Li Hyun Il) up in semi"
    Now we not only have LD vs TH, also have LD vs LHL and don't forget if LCW is lucky enough to get that far then there will be LD vs LCW. What a drama!

    LHI just played a better game than LD who just sucked. I was very impressed by LHI's wrist smash the time I saw him play, it was really deadly and sudden and could catch anyone off guard.

    Lee HI played very well today, and on the other side of coin is: Lin Dan spent a lot of time study TH and did not pay enough attention, did not do enough homework for the match against Lee HI, plus a little bad luck in the first set ending period when he had 3 game points and did not converge. Any one of these did not happen, Lin Dan would still win the match. As for how good Lee HI really is against Lin Dan, in a few days, Men single semi final could provide some hints...

    LHI did a fantastic job and he really deserved the win. Anyway, team China still won both men's and women's team event.

    I must take this oppourtunity to Blow my Trumpet!!!

    :D

    Well i believe i was the first person to vote for LHI in WC2006 Poll :cool:
    My reason was i noticed he was performing better lately and expected the trend to continue. True enough, he was the only Non China player to make it to the WC2006 semis (He beat CJ in the quaters).

    Well my horse seems to be doing well this Asian Games. Better late than never i suppose. :p

    On a technical aspect, i noticed LHI is being extra aggresive at the net. Those extremely risky tight net spins / tumbles seem to be paying off for LHI so far.

    Cheers TBBMBB(N)

    Given all credits to LHI first.

    Then LYI won because he beat LD in reaching 21 points first in 2 sets...LD lost because LYI beat LD in reaching 21 points first in 2 sets... that should answer the question.

    All LD responsed was that he will win against LHI in the semi-finals, I just hope they both can make it that far for another encounter.:p According to Indra's usual prediction, Simon will come out from that quarter and face Taufik in the finals.:eek::p:p Therefore, no rematch for LD and LHI...LOL.

    I understand what you mean, but...

    People hate winners... bottom line. Jealousy, envy, and all the other things are ugly.

    How is LD arrogant for saying he wants to "beat or fix up" LHI next time when they meet??? Compare to Taufik saying he just gave the Indian 1st singles player a "training lesson"???:rolleyes: LD's choice of words??? He ain't an university language facuility graduate, you know...

    I can understand why people hate LYB for he is beating the crap out of all the other "badminton" countries... and people accuse him for fixing matches, but like "if other countries players can eliminate the Chinese early, how is LYB suppose to fix any match which does not involve 2 Chinese players standing across from the court??? You can't blame LYB for continuously producing ALL-CHINA semi's and ALL-CHINA finals... it's the other players' faults for losing." If they don't like it from happening, try beating them in the game with a racket, not by using mouth or the keyboard.:p

    Don't day-dream please....:D LD vs LHI will never happen:D :D

    How come....? the Simon factor is the reason....China's secret is at his hand already...

    Not only Lin Dan, Fu / Cai will also meet the same fate...Markis/Hendra 'the undertaker' are preparing and arranging their [Fu/Cai] "funerals"...:D

    Congrats ! LHI! you played well this time.:)


    good points. :) maybe deep in his mind LD never regards LHI as one of his major opponents. he pays too much attention to TH and overlooks LHI. that's why he lost 5 points randomly when he is leading 20:17, and a little bad luck indeed.

    "People hate winners... bottom line. Jealousy, envy, and all the other things are ugly."

    You are wrong, buddy. Most people don't hate winners if they are humble and graceful like Candra Wijiya, Tony Gunawan, and Kim Dong Moon. I don't know if Lin Dan is intentionally showing his arrogance but he does display it (through his gestures and body language) more often than most top players. And it becomes uglier if he does not win, which is usually not the case as he is a dominant player at the moment.


    "How is LD arrogant for saying he wants to "beat or fix up" LHI next time when they meet??? Compare to Taufik saying he just gave the Indian 1st singles player a "training lesson"???:rolleyes: LD's choice of words??? He ain't an university language facuility graduate, you know...

    Although I dislike of Lin Dan's attitudes at times, I don't think there is anything wrong with saying those words this time. He is just restoring his confidence and maybe stir up a little frustration and anger in LHI for the rematch if they both go through. It's the same as if you tell your friend that you will beat him in a car race to induce him to his maximum performance.

    Also remember, these are the words coming from another person, in this case the media/reporter so don't solely believe it as they are from the original author.

    LOL... I meant most People hate winners, not all...:p

    However, in today's sports world, you don't always find winners that are humble and graceful anymore... and even if they are humble and graceful, somehow they don't receive as much rewards financially for some reason(except Roger.F and Tiger woods)... look at Tony Gunawan whom has accomplished more than almost all players in badminton history... he had to move to a foreign country, find a job to support his family after huge success in badminton. Then you look at the arrogant Taufik, whom only won the so-called "big titles" and he is far better off than Tony. Gunawan financially.

    However, I have to say that Tony.G has his reward in a different way in that I would go as far to say all badminton fans who know badminton well, do have alot of respect in Tony for being one the best, and humble player in history.:D
