    If so it must be a repaint. He has been with the Voltric LD Force for a while now.

    What a heartstopping victory by Lin Dan from 16-all in the decider.

    A scare for us , but he doesn't look scared or relieved, just happy that he made it in the end.

    Lin Dan simply turned it on at just the right time, but, really, it's too close for comfort for us fans.

    The problem is Lin Dan knows he can't do that all the time and, therefore, has to be as economical as possible, only turning it on when needed; it's only R2, after all.

    Frankly, I'm still worried for his fitness/stamina, particularly, in the later stages. That's when all the physical advantage is with his younger opponents.

    After watching today's game, and how tame LD can be, sorry @Nine Tailed Fox I am afraid SWH/KS might be too hard to carck

    Holst was doing most of the running if you ask me.

    On hindsight, it seems to me , Lin Dan in G1, was trying to move his physically fitter and fresh , young opponent, as much as possible to drain some his energy and soften him up a bit; occasionally, it backfired, just as it did today albeit narrowly.

    Holst ran out of steam in the end, had he have a stronger attack, the result could be different. LD's defense is a lot worse than even a couple of years ago, doubtful he would go all the way.
