    - he may 'hate' to be a consintence player , winning many reguler tournaments in a row but fail in a major tournament, i heard many chinese people (in a chinese forum website) bashed him after losing to TH in asian games 2006 final , that might have hurted him :rolleyes: .

    - he just wanted to protest the draw, lindan might say" though i beat TH, i still don't agree with the draw, why must 2 best player meet in very early round " :D

    Anyone is human being, and anyone can have a bad day. If LD can lose in 1st round in Olympics, I don't see why it's not possible that he can lost in 2nd round in any open tournies. Never to metion, playing against TH in 1st round, is not fun for anyone. :eek:

    I don't know why LD lost but the draw was ridiculous.

    LD vs. TH in the 1st Round was ridiculous.

    It becomes more ridiculous when these two superstar badminton players were paid pittance for their efforts, losing out in R! and R2. These guys are akin in status to their star counterparts in their respective sports such as Tiger Woods in golf, Federer (?) in tennis, Beckham in soccer, etc, etc.

    Of course, just as what LB has said, they're still human and have their off-days too.

    Well, you gotta ask Taufik why his ranking is so ridiculous.

    TH's ranking is not ridiculous. It's correct. He doesn't play that many tourneys and hasn't won many which reflects in his ranking.

    Regardless, TH is still one of the Top MS players.

    Exactly, so whose fault is it that Taufik is not ranked high enough to be seeded? BWF? Why blame the draw for being ridiculous?

    The only ridiculous thing is Taufik being ranked 12 when he is one of the top players. Only 7 tournaments per year? Must work harder ...

    It's TH's choice to play or not to play. I'm not debating that. And I'm not debating his ranking.

    My point, and I should have made it in the first post, there's less than a 5% chance LD would play TH in the 1st round based on the "draw". I find it ironic they got paired in the 1st round.

    I'm not saying there's foul play, I just find it ironic. That is all.

    I did not watch the game. But is it possible that he was just too relaxed when playing the game? Maybe he's now only aiming at several events like AE, olympic and wc, and MO is not his priority.

    Oh, great...

    ...and now my earlier prediction of a rematch from last yr's MO wouldn't come to fruition..:( :p

    or what deca2000 wrote could be true..:confused: :rolleyes: :p

    Hmm, isn't this strange..last yr some players were "complaining" abt the new scoring system change when it was introduced. And now, it's the "strange" draw that has most of the players & even coaches "baffled", complaining and left scratching their heads...Will this trend continue for the subsequent SS tourneys??..:confused:
    So, what's next in BWF's agenda??..:confused: :p

    probably has trauma when playing on malaysian courts - losing after 7 championship points! or could just be the bad aura he gets from the crowd, since he was booed the last time.
    but anyway, i don't find it that suprising he lost, he was outplayed.

    Lin Dan lost unexpectedly because you never do "expect" him to lose.

    =/ sounds like the world is trying to beat on china again. It was very horriying when it first happened.

    Anyways on a differen't note, Lets explore the possibility of Lin Dan letting the game go. Now since I didn't see the game I can't say whether or not he was giving it his 100%, but lets say Lin Dan and Lee Choong Wei met in the finals. And Lin Dan won. Wouldn't it cause alot of negative emotions and dent malaysia's confidence in their team ? It could affect the popularity of the sport in malaysia and Lin Dan would get alot boos and disrespect from the crowd, (sort of what you see in an indonesian crowd). So what if Lin Dan lost in the Final against Lee Choong Wei? Then Lin Dan will look really bad, and people will mock him and Lee Choong Wei will again be praised for beating Lin Dan, which would make Lin feel very sore. So Lin could be thinking about what would be the safest course of action or which course of action would benefit the most people. So playing taufik in the beginning round would be great for him. Since he'll be playing one of the best players in history and gain some valuable experience, and at the same time he can lose later in a round where he won't losing much face. And so making an easy exit out of a no win situation, while still adding to his experience.

    Of course, he could of just plain losed.

    I am sure WBF would argue that putting them in the first round is the right decision(from draw) as none of these two players advanve deep into the round so how could they be the best players of the tournament? The results speak for itself and I concur :D
    It's still a very good tournament and the best is yet to come. Sit tight and enjoy!
