    Justin, this is a rather demeaning comment unto Chou Tien Chen, to determine anyone's "level."

    With LCW out, LD can opt not to win. CHN still have CL to carry the flag.

    Also, for all we know right now, Lin Dan's level doesn't seem to be that high right now.

    Guys it's just a small tournament. World Champs is all that counts. Doesn't matter who wins this one. It's just a warm up really.

    He is no longer the Lin Dan I knew. When will he regain his former prowess, what with change of playing style which is a far cry from his hallmark attacking game, lesser(if not lack of) motivation, and all those other distractions in his life? I think it's high time Yonex makes some of their displeasure known to him.

    LD is 30+, married and has a kid right? He's got other priorities than badminton. Give him a break.

    Chou's reaction when he missed simple shot quite hilarious. His game though, quite steady atm, retrieving a la LCW.

    Yeah, he is certainly not playing up to his full potential, even when rallying and stroke play. Surprisingly , somewhat more erratic today; he really shouldn't have lost G1 which he was leading most of the way.

    CTC is playing like 110% though, so credit where credit is due I guess.

    Imagine, yet another luck of the net cord for CTC, it's his day, everything is working for him.

    LD certainly wants to win though. He's injecting pace whenever he falls behind. Interesting.

    It's better for CTC to advance to tomorrow's final. It will fill up the stadium.

    Motivation will lift your game, the more so with the home crowd behind you, that's exactly what CTC is having now.

    Lin Dan winning now. Should be 3 easy sets. You can lock that in. I just can't seem to be wrong.

    Lin Dan's smashes are no longer as lethal as before.

    Clever attacking by LD. Place of shot, rather than pace of shot.
