    Many thanks, kevinboy. Don't worry about the errors.The gist of the write up still comes through. It's a great way to get a feel of Chinese expressions and grammar.If it's not too much trouble, pls include the original Mandarin version.Appreciate your kindness.

    How about yourself? Which category do you fit into?

    The "die-hard-Taufik-only" fans of Indonesia? :)

    Here is the Chinese version.

    昨天结束的日本羽毛球公开赛,堪称“小世锦赛”,为了争取奥运积分,包括中国队在内的世界强队均以绝对主力阵容出击。但中国队最后仅靠杨维/张洁雯和高崚/郑波获得了女双和混双金牌。男单仅有林丹一人进入4强,女单无力阻拦丹麦选手拉斯姆森的进攻,男双8强不入,这一系列尴尬的镜头,都昭示着中国队在准备奥运的道路上,还有很多需要重视的问题。
      中国女单多年来依靠张宁和谢杏芳横扫各大赛场,本来担心后继无人的中国队,又在世锦赛上收获了女科女单冠军小将朱琳。没想到刚配齐老中青三套人马的中国队,在日本公开赛女单比赛中连接遭受溃败。先是朱琳早早败在了中国香港球员叶姵延拍下,16强不入。张宁抵抗不住拉斯姆森的攻势,4强不入。而在昨天的女单决赛中,谢杏芳以15比21和17比21完败,让本来只属于二线选手的拉斯姆森成功登顶。
      对于自己能先后战胜中国选手蒋燕皎、张宁、卢兰和谢杏芳并获得冠军,拉斯姆森觉得自己的状态好得不可思议,“可能是我的后来居上让她们有些着急,也对谢杏芳形成了心理压力。”这是她能想到唯一获得胜利的原因。
      与女单相比,中国男单选手更加狼狈,自2006年新加坡公开赛以来,中国男单首次在公开赛中无人入围决赛。鲍春来、陈宏首轮告负、陈郁爆冷输给了香港老将陈仁杰,陈金、林丹先后败给李宗伟,决赛在中国队两名最大对手李宗伟和陶菲克之间进行。
      实力接近的李宗伟和陶菲克二人在比赛中争夺极为激烈,尤其是首局比赛二人多次战成平手,20平之后李宗伟才把握住机会连得两分以22比20险胜。第二局陶菲克顽强地以21比19艰难扳回一局。决胜局的比赛李宗伟以21比19艰难获胜。这场打得淋漓尽致的决战,其实也是对中国男单下的一封战书,陶菲克宝刀未老而李宗伟强势回归,让林丹压力更大。
      女双是中国队唯一还具有优势的项目,决赛在杨维/张洁雯和赵婷婷/于洋之间进行,结果重新配合的杨维/张洁雯以2比0轻松击败对手获得冠军,中国同时还包办了女双4强的全部席位。混双“孤军奋战”的郑波/高崚压力也不轻,自8强后中国队仅剩他们一对选手,在郑波逐渐成熟的情况下,两人连续闯关成功,在决赛中直落两局击败上届冠军、印尼名将诺瓦/诺希尔。

     有些闷热的吉隆坡布拉特体育馆里,李宗伟面对索尼最后一拍的犀利回球,无奈地摇摇头,然后迅速收拾好球包,先是一屁股坐在了球场内的挡板后面,任由教练米斯本在旁边说着什么,继而又耷拉着脑袋,一溜烟地钻进了球员休息室,将许多记者甩在了混合采访区……  这是今年世锦赛男单八分之一比赛后的一幕,主场作战的李宗伟没有顶住印尼选手索尼的犀利进攻,竟然以0比2被挡在八强门外。许久之后,李宗伟才走出休息室,面对闪烁不停的闪光灯,他用极慢的语速说道:“我希望通过媒体向现场观众道歉,今天我的表现并没有和大家的支持形成正比,我的表现非常不好,的确让人失望。我承认我的压力太大了,此后,我想我要学会更好地控制自己。”
      这个瘦弱的槟城男孩
      就像世锦赛一样,输球后的李宗伟总会低头不语,用毛巾盖住自己的头,坐在一个不起眼的角落里。然而即便是赢球,性格内向的他依然是这副表情,就像中国大师赛那样,在八分之一决赛战胜陶菲克之后,他的脸上没有太多的欣喜,只是安静地坐着,用大毛巾盖住了满是汗珠的额头。
      的确,李宗伟比想象中的还要瘦弱,他总是佝偻着身体,游离着目光,不论是赛前赛后,不论是赢球还是输球,他总是这样一副无精打采的模样,怎么看都不像是一位世界顶尖的羽毛球选手,但正是这样一个身高只1.72米的大男孩,在他瘦小的身体里却蕴藏着强大的力量。
      李宗伟祖籍福建,祖父祖母当年为了生计从福建南下,从此扎根在了马来西亚第二大城市槟城。李宗伟有两个哥哥一个姐姐,作为家中最小的一个孩子,好玩的好吃的总是归他所有,但他的个子总是不见长。为了能让自己长高一些,李宗伟迷上了篮球,但是妈妈看到儿子每天在球场晒得很黑,就勒令他今后不准再打篮球了。
      有一天,喜欢打羽毛球的爸爸带李宗伟到自己常去的球馆玩,李宗伟好奇地拿起球拍挥了几下,一旁的教练看见这个11岁的男孩虽然其貌不扬,但是身体协调性比一般孩子高出一大截,随即就提出希望收李宗伟为徒,让他每天放学后到这里来练球。爸爸虽然很高兴,但是他实在没有时间每天接送,教练一听,拍着胸脯说:“放心吧,交给我好了,你只要每天把他送过来,我保证练完球就把他安全送回家。”于是,李宗伟开始正式学习羽毛球。本以为学球之后会变得强壮些,不料想,这么多年过去,他依然是当初瘦弱的身材和不起眼的模样。
      50%天分+50%努力=世界第一
      虽然11岁才开始接触羽毛球,但是李宗伟的运动天分很快便显现出来,从球馆到羽毛球专业学校,从州队(相当于中国的省队)再到国家队,李宗伟只用了6年时间。1999年在马来西亚全国锦标赛一举夺魁后,17岁的李宗伟终于披上了国字号战袍。
      2000年 世青赛,被寄予厚望的李宗伟在半决赛中输给了印尼新星索尼,屈居第三。那时候,马来西亚的男单“一哥”是黄宗翰,教练只是把李宗伟当作一个“技术全面、将来很有希望”的新人来培养,直到2004年在中国台北公开赛上,李宗伟才拿到了自己的第一个公开赛冠军。带着自己的第一个冠军,李宗伟站在了雅典奥运会的赛场上,但是稍显稚嫩的他在16进8的比赛中输给了陈宏,他说第一次的奥运之旅自己并没有遗憾,毕竟那时候差的还是太多了。
      奥运会后,李宗伟迎来了事业上的转机,他的教练从招他进国家队的米斯本换成了李矛。但是对这样一个有着重大意义的换帅过程,李宗伟接受的并不心甘情愿:“一直以来米斯本的体能训练对我很有帮助,但李矛来了之后,跑步都少了,我确实不信任他。”但半年后,李宗伟的步法和网前技术有了明显提高,成绩也逐渐上升,不仅连续第三年夺得马来西亚公开赛冠军,2006年初,他的世界排名更是飙升到第一,速度之快让他自己也没想到。
      说到自己的成功,李宗伟很赞同大家对他训练刻苦的评价,既而还很不谦虚地说自己还有百分之五十靠的是天分:“比起其他人,我学球算是很晚了,只用10年就能达到世界顶尖水平,真的很不容易。”
      当然,这种不容易自然不只是靠天分。在平日的训练中,李宗伟每堂训练课都要换5件 球衣,打500个球,而每堂训练课之后,他又要进行半个小时到一个小时的枯燥的肌肉拉伸和放松,他笑着说:“到了现在这个水平,保持是最重要的,我的身体条件本来就不好,如果再不下功夫,你们哪能一直把我当作很强的对手呢。”
      有高峰就会有低谷,关键是如何面对
      当李宗伟坐上世界羽坛男单的头把交椅之后,他却开始了一段跌跌撞撞的下坡路。2006年9月在马德里,李宗伟在世锦赛四分之一决赛中输给了鲍春来,之后便陷入了事业的低潮期,在此后长达一年的时间里,他没有染指过任何一项赛事的冠军。
      多哈亚运会前夕,李宗伟不幸出了 车祸,头部流了很多血,最后缝了6针,那道疤痕现在还清晰可见。祸不单行的是,从亚运会铩羽而归后,将他从一个普通球员带到世界第一的恩师李矛也离开了他,他的教练又换成了米斯本。他对自己说:“我能当世界第一,就证明我有这个实力,受伤、换教练对我只是一个考验,我一定会走过去。”凭借这股顽强的信念,李宗伟在训练上更加投入,和米斯本的配合也日渐默契,他在速度和进攻上面又有了质的飞跃。
      在李宗伟走出低谷参加的第二站超级赛印尼公开赛上,他赛前给自己订的目标仅仅是进入四强,但是他却一路杀进了决赛,并且在决赛中战胜了鲍春来,轻松获得了的2007年的第一个冠军。在随后的苏迪曼杯小组赛中,他又力挫林丹,再次成为媒体追逐的焦点。虽然世锦赛的失利使马来西亚国内对他的质疑声再起,但李宗伟自己说那个暗藏杀气的李宗伟又回来了。对于外界再一次的非议,经历了高峰低谷的李宗伟看得很淡,他说无所谓输赢,只要打了一场好球,只要身体健康就好。
      魏轶力、鲍春来是好朋友,黄妙珠也是“好朋友”
      母语是中文的李宗伟在中国队有不少的好朋友,首当其冲的就是2000年在世青赛上相识的鲍春来。因为年龄相近,性格相似,李宗伟和鲍春来这么多年一直相互保持着联系,甚至经常会有马来西亚的“鲍迷”托李宗伟在比赛时给鲍春来带些书信和礼物。虽然场上是对手,但是他们两个人经常会在比赛之余一起吃饭聊天,鲍春来会称赞李宗伟“人很好”,李宗伟也会同样回一句“他很帅”。
      其实,李宗伟和中国队队员熟悉不仅仅是因为比赛,更重要的还是因为他的另一重身份——中国和马来西亚间的“二道贩子”。原来,每次比赛前,中国队队员都会发短信或上网留言给李宗伟,托他带一些马来西亚当地做的羽毛球饰品。成都中国大师赛期间,李宗伟就给魏轶力带了好几个项链的挂坠,而作为东道主,魏轶力也帮李宗伟办了成都当地的手机卡。还请他吃了火锅。
      好人缘的李宗伟在马来西亚队也有不少好朋友,古健杰、关明鸿都是他的好哥们,但是大家更关心的还是他和队友黄妙珠之间的感情。虽然李宗伟从来没有向媒体承认过他们之间的恋人关系,但是他的一席话还是泄漏了天机:“其实,我们也还算好朋友,马来西亚记者也经常问我这个问题,但我一律都是说好朋友啦。”在中国大师赛上,面对输了球心情不佳的黄妙珠,李宗伟顺手拿起自己的毛巾在对方面前晃来晃去,还小声说了几句马来语,刚才还哭丧着脸的黄妙珠顿时笑逐颜开。
      对于今后的生活,李宗伟没有考虑太多,他说北京奥运会之后也许会退役,也许还会打几年,到时看自己的成绩和心态。至于奥运会,他依旧没有考虑太多,马来西亚羽协也没有给他制定目标,他说只要自己尽力就好。他现在唯一比较确定的就是,退役之后,自己会做点生意,过一种简单舒适的生活。

    Please also note that this is an English forum. A lot of people from China are not well versed in English(no offense to those from China) , try looking at the Chinese forums.

    A number of China players themselves have admitted they don't speak English well, they always speak in Chinese with translation.

    And when Malaysian players lose, actually the fans here also are the loudest in critizing, look at the looong posts on 'why they lost....'

    I thought I already mentioned that on my latest post. ;) The Chinese forums will have Chinese fanatism, as well as the Malaysian forums will have the Malaysian forums.

    As for the criticizing, one more additional character of MAS fans to notice. :)

    Sorry, I meant Msian fans are loudest in critizing when Msian players lose(remember Pemuda and other like him), you said quietest. Same goes for our government and media, that's already covered in other threads.

    Eagle,

    I know what you meant. That's why I said "one more character of MAS fans to notice", which means MAS fans do not stop at being quiet when their players lose, but they go even further by criticizing their idols. Criticizing their players is another character of MAS fans, which if it is not constructive, is even worse than being quiet.

    I just didn't want to make MAS fans upset by saying they have criticized their own players, so I stoped by saying they were the quietest. But you're right and you have pointed out this fact.

    Ben,
    You are absolutely right for pointing out the fact here..
    It is a shame for MAS fans, sometimes they are just over reacting...
    When they won a title or two.. Many are live in the heaven, while if the lost tamely in the opening matches or failed to even advance into the finals.. Some will start their bashes here & there.

    Ben L, I dare to point that out cos I'm also Malaysian, of course at the risk of being bashed myself :). Sometimes they pick up from our critical press and Sports Council,so one thing leads to another. All the intensity and anxiety over any potential gold medal contenders cos Msia have never won gold in Olympics.

    Prediction wise : I hope Malaysia can win the MS and MD in this time, that would stop the critics for a while.

    Ben L,

    To some extent I do agree with you, but this trait is probably predominant all throughout other countries, and not just restricted to Malaysia only. Why you see more of this in the BC forum is because there are more Malaysians here, while I am sure, if you go to for example, a Chinese forum, such bashings and praises will be predominant. I think this is the trait of all fans, regardless of what country they are from, and I think you are unfair in saying that this trait is restricted to Malaysia only.

    Thank you for agreeing with me although only to some extent. A few words for you to digest:

    The Chinese forums will have the Chinese fanatism (bashing and praises), as well as the Malaysian forums will have Malaysian fanatism. They are all the same. But only on this diverse forum (Badminton Central), can we see the attitude of all fans. Being dominant on this forum doesn't give you the right to do/act/talk whatever you want.

    When you are at home, you can do/talk/act whatever you fell good. Nobody worries about it. But only in public places will your attitude be judged. Do you get it? On your home forum (Malaysian forum), you can talk/bash/praise whatever you want and nobody minds, but on a diverse forum like this one, you have to watch your attitude. Do you get it?

    Someone who is rash with his words and calls someone else immature is probably immature himself. ;)

    If you disagree with me, at least say something smart, like the others.
