    in brief LD said he is still not back into regular training after the olympic thus not match fit. he believes that if he play under his current condition will be disrespect for his opponents.

    LD has withdrawn from the 2008 China Masters SS ???

    .
    If LD has withdrawn from the 2008 China Masters SS, then a new draw should be forthcoming.

    It should also mean that BCL and CJ will be moved to the bottom half of the draw, and SDK to the top half

    Assuming that the top 4 seeds were to reach the Semi-Finals, then we would have these 2 interesting matches:
    LCW vs SDK
    BCL vs CJ

    :):):)

    Olympic is over and I do not think LYB will fix the match.....
    It is better for LD to withdraw if he thinks he is not ready...plus he did a lot of tour after winning Olympic........
    I hoped that our TH did same thing and gave the olympic spot to Simon instead as we all knew that TH was not ready at all.....

    This just goes to show that ever since Lin Dan won OG08, he doesn't even care about his world ranking any more... skipping the next 3-4 tournaments...wow:eek:

    If I were Lin Dan, I would retire right after OG08 just for the best possible reputation and fame, instead of staying in play for the money earned from sponsors and etc.

    Just look at Taufik these days... he is no longer being remembered as the top player he once was before any more.:crying:

    In the far ahead future, only 2 types of players today will be forever remembered... The 1st type is the very best player, eg. Lin Dan, Yang Yang, Zhao JW, and etc:cool:. or the next type is the very very bad players, eg. Mr. YoYo Hafiz Hashim..LOL;)

    There is so many young and up-coming chinese players in the way if LCW...so he has to be real careful or else the mouth watering match between LD and LCW will not materialize...

    Badminton fans around the world are disappointed that LD and XXF won't be there

    .
    Don't think it's as simple as that.

    XXF is World No.1 and she didn't win the OG08 Gold, but yet she is not playing. Some are saying that LD is not playing because of XXF. :) But for Team CHN, LYB is the decision maker.

    However, many Badminton fans around the world are disappointed that their idols, LD and XXF, will not be participating.

    One is either naive or igorant to agree with you.:rolleyes:

    Even LCW said that he has flashback of OG08 just because of how fast Lin Dan was, and that LCW had no chance of even playing his normal game... and now you have a different opinion from LCW himself.:rolleyes:

    Another reason can be that in order for some of the China Junior players to participate in SS events, there has to be enough room available... so by having the top players giving up their spots, then the lower ranking Chinese Juniors then have a chance to participate.

    By the way, players play to win and play for their own reasons, not really to please their fans.:eek:

    Badminton: Chong Wei holds advantage to book world championships spot
    By RAJES PAUL
    KUALA LUMPUR: National number one Lee Chong Wei has a head start as far as qualification for next year’s World Badminton Champion-ships is concerned.

    And he intends to keep the momentum going when he takes part in three back-to-back Open tournaments — Japan Open (Sept 16-21), China Masters (Sept 23-28) and Macau Open (Sept 30-Oct 5).

    Chong Wei has set his sights on winning honours in the world championships, which will be held in India from Aug 10-16.

    The 52-week qualifying period ends in May and the top 16 in the ranking are assured of places in the championships.

    Chong Wei harboured hopes of becoming the first Malaysian world champion last year but he was beaten by Indonesian Sony Dwi Kuncoro in the third round at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil.

    In the first tournament that offered qualifying points for the world championships, the Beijing Olympics last month, Chong Wei emerged as runner-up to China’s Lin Dan.

    He moved up one rung to number one in the ranking and will be out to retain the Japan Open title.

    “In order to remain at the top, I have to win the Japan Open title,” said Chong Wei after a training session at Juara Stadium in Bukit Kiara yesterday.

    “The qualifying period for the world championships has already begun. I want to do well in all the tournaments so that I can maintain my number one status for a long time.

    “China and South Korea are not sending their best players to Tokyo. But I expect tough challenges from Indonesia and Denmark, who will have their best players there.”

    Top seeded Chong Wei has in his half of the draw three Indonesians — fourth seed Taufik Hidayat, Simon Santoso and Tommy Sugiarto — and two Danes, Joachim Persson and Jan O. Jorgensen.

    The other half of the draw has second seed Sony, three Chinese players — Chen Yu, Gong Weijie, Li Yu – and Dane Peter Gade-Christensen.

    Chong Wei added that he was recovering from a bout of fever.

    “I was down with fever on Friday but I had two days of good rest. I just slept in. But I will not let this affect my plan to do well in Japan,” he said.

    Until a week ago, he had been busy attending numerous functions since winning the silver medal in the Beijing Olympics.

    “I still think about the defeat by Lin Dan. He was so fast that I could not play my normal game,” he added.

    “It hurts just thinking about the match. I even felt numb during the medal ceremony.”





    NOW WHO IS AFRAID OF WHO?:rolleyes:

    i think LD is just being nice..since he was #1 for so long, and then to brutally destroy LCW's mental game and gold medal, he's gunna relax with XXF for a bit, and let LCW enjoy being #1 for a bit. then he can make sure XXF doesn't retire, so they can retire together to "golden couple" in 2012 ;)! ...well and to take back his #1 =]
