There was no world championships in 2012, if that is what you mean by "WC." Also, just watch the World Championship final of 2011, where the whole match, almost literally, MF was cheering LCW himself like a fervent fan. The final comments are what sum it up ... (Just after Lin Dan won) The other commentator: Lin Dan wins, blah blah blah ... MF: But, I have been saying this whole week, and I will say it again, that LCW is the best overall player. The other commentator: But Lin Dan just won. MF: Yes, I know! (the tone clearly meant that winning the championships didn't mean much) I have been hearing the commentary now for a long time, a really long time. While GC gets so excited with each attempt that she perceives as a penetration of the great chinese wall, her speech, tone etc. are always critical of Lin Dan one way or the other. And it is the contrast that matters. She is so supportive to other players, not Lin Dan.
