For his sake, I really hope LCW is building up his confidence again. I like him as a player and from most accounts, he's a good guy. However, I doubt he himself fully believes in his own words. It's almost like he's trying to convince himself he did OK... like trying to make the best out of a bad situation. According to the report from the Badminton Asia Championship website, Taufik won handily, which can only suggest that LCW's satisfied with the small positive steps he's taken.
