Not only that. What's more, it's been only a week after the high of the Sudirman Cup triumph, I feel Lin Dan would rather be at home in Beijing with his family than launch himself into another campaign so soon. Furthermore, the requirement of mentally adjusting from a naturally unwinding state after winning a major and then having to get back up again for another top-notch event would take a longer rather than shorter time than before, particularly in Lin Dan's case taking into account his special conditions. I'm sure Lin Dan will do some necessary reflections and act as appropriate for the following tournaments. I think the negative impact of this loss is not great, just mostly of inconvenience as he would have to do more to recover lost ground in terms of ranking points. Technically speaking, I felt that Lin Dan played worse today vs V Axelsen than he did at the Sudirman Cup against Marc Zwiebler (twice) and Takuma Ueda; obviously, the demands of the two events differ considerably.
