    Lee Chong Wei on yesterdays match wasn't that impressive to say the least. I would have expected some serious competition between both players but noticed that Lee Chong Wei was a li'l reserved in his playing approach. For a proffesional player for his stature the expectation would have been different considering that Cheng Long is new and pros do excercise strategies when confronting different players.

    Another reason why LCW's mental state might be weaker, that's because he is not really used to having to work and come back from behind against his opponents. Most of his opponenets he ended up breezing past them that he never had to face pressure situations like coming back from behind.

    No, this is not an excuse for LCW's loss. CL simply played better and also tactically better. LCW was slow...

    My own very humble opinion : with his coach's change, LCW is much more mature nowadays. I think he changed his preparation and stopped worrying about SS titles (that was a bit juvenile), and he now only aims at big title, like LD. We all saw that LCW was slow (relatively speaking) in JO and DO, and that perhaps is because he wants to peak for the 2012 OLY. Now is to early, so he relax. Moreover, if CL can take n.2 spot in world ranking, that is even better, it will confuse the chinese camp (they don't like when the order between player is not clear, that is why they are not satisfied with the WS) and make LD uncomfortable.

    what an interesting analysis! ;) lets check its solidness after some time (until about Q1 2012) to see how many titles will LCW throw out right from HERE TiLL OLY (counting only the tourneys he participates, excludes all the ones that he waives)

    In that sense too, from now on the opportunity to beat LCW will be more widely opened to more players, relatively said (not only limited to LD and CL) since he is more relaxed in preparation and less persevering in pursuing titles in order to have the peak at Oly.

    Interesting observation. Makes sense if OLY gold is his ultimate goal, and so it seems that LCW has learned something from LD. :)

    Your feng shui master last minute change "horse". You should have stayed with him and not gone to mamak shop to watch Astro.

    LCW is presently doing adjustment to his playinmg style ! His present playing style is too obvious to the chinese players and coaches. He need to change and indeed he already start to change. Did notice or not he seldom execute his traded mark cross-courted smashes last night (as in Japan Open or previous other tournaments) but rather go for many forehand smashes. This is the first step towards changing ! Unfortunately his execution is not good last night, give him another few more months, I am
    sure you will see a much balanced LCW with good forehand and cross-courted smashes that can confused his opponents. :)

    Right, couldn't agree with you more. Chong wei was "forced" into making those errors because he was surprised by Chen Long's ability to return all those shots that he couldn't before; that constrained and rattled Chong wei ,hence the errors, more frequent than usual.

    Just have to read CW's post-match interview where he didn't give excuses for losing but instead admitted CL is a real threat to him now, in addition to Lin Dan.

    Agree. DO is the most logical place to lose to PG without giving anything away to PG. What a terrific match for CL, resounding success after 50+ match rehearsals against LCW clones before testing on the real one. And an early wake up call for LCW who is caught between trying to win by playing according to script or revealing more options for CL to expand his horizons. For Olympics sake, he better do a LD, lose if inevitable; just keep the surprises for Olympics so CL has no opportunity to rote train for any new syllabus.For sure, the stamina looks suspect. Without enough, he cannot sustain his speed advantage. Without his speed, LCW s just like any other top 10 player. With limited stamina, power will have to be sacrificed to maintain the speed edge. Guess it s time to call Misbun to get LCW back to shape.
