    Actually Germany is the closest place to Israel where LD and other bigs play during a year... though it's still 4 hours flying

    I really wouldn't bet on LD actually playing. Going to the AE will make you a lot happier - even if LD should (for whatever reason) not play, there are tons of other amazing matches to see. Here, there are only a few of the elite players (lucky me - the Korean doubles are amongst them :))

    It looks like a done deal. LD will not even play today, presumably in preparation of German Open.

    It seems that LD will really play in German Open. This is really surprising, considering that his team has 2 matches on the week of German Open.

    Nothing to surprise, he is there to save guard his team mates, especially those younger ones to make sure they gain more WR points !

    Quite unfavourable draw for those LD compatriots, barring any upset Wang Zhengming & Chen Jin possibly will be clashed at QF.

    Looks like he s avoiding LCW again.

    What s LD trying to say? The CBSL is nothing compared to some minor title he had won before?

    Why have the CBSL when the top star dumped it?

    Or CBSL is nothing compared to my AE, step 2 of 4 towards PSS Grand Slam, preparation? ;)

    And in case you forgot: it's LCW who withdrew from this German Open ... (but that might have actually saved a mysterious injury from acting up again on someone's part :D, and saving the tournament's SF and Final)

    So LD needs the minor GO to help him prepare for AE? He didn t have to in 2008/2009/2010?

    :D Changing the subject? You claim he is avoiding LCW by playing in the German Open for which they both entered ... Why enter if you should be playing league matches

    In any case LD is borderline geriatric for a chinese player, so yes he might want to get rid of any jetlag before AE. He didn't exactly do much in the 2010 AE and SO ...
