    My humble opinion... LCW did not lose to LD on those occasions. He lost to himself.

    No, he lost to Lin Dan. I am sure he would have won if he had played himself!

    In my humble opinion, he lost those matches but won a lot of money.

    Meh, if he won those matches, he would've won a whole lot more money... not just prize money, but more endorsements etc... ;)

    Well, you don't lose to yourself so many times when facing the same opponent.

    Isn't that the same?

    "A player" is not just his physics and strokes. It's the whole player, including mental aspects. Therefore, LCW lost to LD, because LD has the whole package.

    (furthermore, I believe LD is the better player if you only look at shots and physics, even ignoring mental apsects...)

    Do you know something that we don't ? Lost those matches but won a lot of money? How can that happen? Are you insinuating that he betted on himself loosing those matches or that he was working hand in glove with betting syndicates?

    Definitely, he would be the one with the multi-year multi-million$ deal instead.
