    Adding on to that, I heard GC mentioned that both players wanted to change. Strange.

    Yup, since both players wanted it. Sometimes, little things like this can annoy the players.

    I don't think I'll ever tire of watching Lin Dan's footwork, he's so slick.

    Jonathan should play like sai praneeth. You should not go all out to beat Lindan . He has got best defence in town. Better play like sai, if only he knows it how to apply.

    Jonatan can afford to go all out without considering the need top conserve energy, the advantage of youth and with nothing to lose, no mater the outcome.

    Footwork, wrist-work, everything, all compartments of the game, except that he's no longer that fast and explosive as before, but more artistic, creative and deceptive.

    Holy mackerel we're gonna get that sweet, sweet LCW vs LD final, aren't we? LD looking real nice so far, and he's not even exhausting himself yet.

    I don't agree with Steen,I think Jonatan is not playing like Sony DK or Tommy S, the young man's game is fast and furious, and more offensive.

    It's the fundamentals that are the most important, it gets more refined as you age, unfortunately many youngsters don't know that. A lot of youngsters depend way too much on their athleticism.

    There's still the semifinals for both Lin Dan and Lee CW tomorrow, no guarantee of a Dream Lin - Lee Final yet.

    I see this at my club level. Players relying entirely on their stamina to ease out matches & a contest of 'who has the more explosive smash'.

    True, most of the youngsters depend on their athleticism to 'bully' the 'old' players.
