    If Lin Dan is the ex GOAT, who is the one who has surpassed him? :)

    He probably meant ex-greatest: the GOAT is still Lin Dan

    Lin Dan ver 2.0

    The question is : Who is the delusional one? :D The one who said LD was ex GOAT or the ones that said LD was the GOAT.

    Lots of them in the future.
    In any case he has been beaten before this.

    GOAT = Greatest Of All Time
    All Time includes the Future, not just Past or Present.
    So how can he be the Goat? :D

    Unfortunately, not lin Dan's day. He seemed not into the game and was more error-prone than usual. (Could it be partially the jetlag as he has difficulty sleeping on the plane on long-haul flights as revealed by Wang Xin before?) Anyway, he retired when 12-19 down in G2 after dropping G1 (out of sorts, maybe, hoped it's not any injury, however slight as more important tournaments are just round the corner).

    I thought I've explained this clearly to you before, memory lapse ?

    Once more, this time from the Collins English Dictionary - If you say that someone or something is, for example, the best writer of all time, or the most successful film of all time, you mean that they are the best or most successful that there has ever been. 'Monopoly' is one of the best-selling games of all time

    That was why I said we'd got the winner to answer the question in my previous post "Who is the delusional one?":p:p

    If you quote the future, you must give a name. Not just speculate.

    o_Oo_O Have I ever quoted the future? I was only joking to say Loh was the delusional one to have said LD was the ex Goat.

    Which top player hasn't been beaten before, LCW, Zhao Jianhua, Yang Yang, Rudy Hartono (your favourite), Punch Gunalan (another great from your generation) ? Was there ever one player in history who never lost a single match to anyone, I can't believe I even have to say this to anyone (your wilful ignorance is ... well, you're being impossible).

    So yeah. I repeat Lin Dan ver 2.0 or whatever version LD has and the winner of the delusional one is mentioned above. Is this not clear enough?

    Indeed Yuquall was pointing to Loh.

    Loh was wrong to point out that LD is ex-GOAT. Emotions overwhelmed him this time.

    Up Yuquall!
