You consider reaching the final and SF of CO and China Master this year a good indication that LCW will be a major contender in Beijing next year?? So, you take it that with the Chinese fans screaming fraud, you concluded that the judging was biased?? Did I say that I HOPE people would blame the judging??? Well, look at the titles LD has won so far. Yes, ranking wise it is just one rank diff. BUT titles wise, it is LD by a mile. BCL beat LCW. What about the millions the Msian government spent on badminton??? When was the last time we won that TC? Any WC or Olympic gold??? By the way, even Denmark won that Olympic gold before. And other than LCW, do we have another up & coming player??? Yes, LD crashed out in the 1st round of CO. But tell me which is a bigger tournament , CO or WC??? How many of em' WC titles LD won? LCW how?? How do I define great??? Based on the titles, major ones. Sorry, the head to head between LD & LCW is 7 to 3. And LCW still have yet to land a major title i.e. WC, AE or the Olympic gold.
