    ^^

    Chen Yu is actually quite a bit older than even Lin Dan, by like maybe 2-3 years. I see him more as a giant killer or a player that spring surprises by bringing some top seeds down instead of being a championship contender.

    It's not like LD lost to some unknown, rookie player who we've never seen before. Park Sung Hwan is probably Korea's 2nd best MS player now and also a former world junior silver medallist so he's no cakewalk. But at the same time, it is shocking to see LD lost relatively tamely in 2 straight to somebody who's not Taufik. It's been quite a while since he lost this early in a tourney.

    But maybe to LD, the main thing here was he got his revenge...

    Ha..ha.. BTW, how old is Park SH? Koreans are known to have great fighting spirits and can come up with surprises tho' not consistently.

    On a more serious observation, I think the Chinese team are not really well-conditioned for this MO. It's bitterly cold in Beijing this season. Some of the players couldn't make the trip because they are not well, some came and fell sick along the way. The rest who are surviving the tournament are probably not 90% fit although they are silent so as not to give their opponents the extra confidence. The men's divison is very competitive and if you are not up to the mark on that particular day you will not see thru' it unlike in the women's where the gap is still significant.

    Another thought,

    I think LD lost because he was overconfident.Somehow I feel that at the back of his mind he must have thought if it win TH.The title is mine...He was wrong very wrong.The korean must has hit him where it hit mosts

    Lin Dan is great. He is a complete player. More to come from him in 2007.

    But i think in Malaysia, he is Lin DONE!

    Just kidding! :p

    it may have been mental exhaustion or physical exhaustion. it may be lin dan was outmanuvered. it may be he was not feeling well. it may be the fact that the crowd was making it hard for him. it may be he was not playing his 100%. it may have been a lot of things. but the bottom line is, he is defeated. i thought park played a great game judging from the way he made lin dan scramble all over the court. i never really expect anyone to make it to the final. not even lee chong wei, even though i would love for him to win again this year. not even taufik because he had lin dan in the first round. not even lin dan because he had taufik in the first round. one thing about this NSS, anybody on a good day could make an upset. so no, it was not unexpected for me.

    :)

    Lin Dan lost because Park Sun Hwan reached 21 points first and was ahead by more than a point for two consecutive sets...Otherwise, LD would have been the winner. :D

    Malaysia Open 2007 : Lin Done is undone

    Hi bic33,

    Yes, "Lin Done" is indeed funny...... but too sarcastic ! :p:p:p

    But to DinkAlot......

    I hope that Lin Dan will play for his fans too, not just for himself, his teammates or his coach.

    I should think that to make Badminton the most popular racket sport, all professional players should look after their fans first.

    Idealistic...... Yes, still some will say. :):):)

    Cheers... chris@ccc

    Am not quite sure if overconfident was the factor. I think he was ill prepared for this tournament tho' the papers mentioned he was ready. After his win over TH, LD was quoted to say that there are hurdles to clear. There was no indication of confidence in him taking the MO title.

    However, a fallen LD is a dangerous LD. This guy has bounced back time and again and has proven to be devastating at times. This is only the 1st leg of the 12 series. One can never tell as the men's division is highly competitive. We may see a resurgence of LD in Korea, more of TH in other tournaments (hope he keeps in word) and more dark horses.

    I can accept criticizm but calling me plain stupid is just promoting hate. I don't think this comment is appropriate.

    Hmm, btw, i wonder..

    ...have you guys take a look @ the Korean Open MS draw??..I noticed LinDan is playing Kendrick Lee in the 1st round ..Is that a #1 vs. #12 seeded match, just like in this MO??..
    *Btw, i was giggling looking at LinDan's pic "sleeping" on the floor..hehe:D :p He might as well stay on the court and "sleep" thru the rest of the day..:p :D ;)

    Only LD himself knows best why he failed. For all us, we have to ACCEPT that all great players have their BAD days and LD is no exception.

    "Superdan' was given by the media not LD himself. World No. 1 was not given on a silver platter to LD - he attributed his success to his hard work & discipline.

    Tho' I do not condone the behaviour of booing from the spectators, uncalled for remarks from players and impartial reports from media, I have to ACCEPT that these 3 will exist as long as the world exist. And dear old LD has to ACCEPT that as long as he is World No. 1, he will attract envy & critics and is the player every other player wants to beat.

    LD was perfectly fit when he defeated taufik and the same when he was defeated by PSH. Sick is defineatly not the excuse. This sounds unfair to PSH.

    I used to like LD but not until I saw him smashing his racquet onto the floor and refused to don a traditional hat (the hat which only worn by the natives' hero during those days) during the prize giving of MO2006. That was really rude and disrespect to the natives :mad:
    Dad & bro dislike him starting that day too.. Nvr forget that moment :( His attitude's making me so shocked -> disappointed -> ANGRY!
