i've read many 'bad' comments abt taufik, "he's afraid to meet lin dan.. bla..bla", "he flew away from lion dan...... bla..bla..bla" i think the comment below is the best answer abt taufik from sully, US "Hey Guys! calm down a bit will ya! I understand it's upsetting that TH just withdrew like that, but I think TH has been treated a bit unfair.. Deceiving himself by turning blind to the fact is a picture of a TRUE LOSER. A loser like that would never make the tough journey to become a professional or even a great player like him. Unlike his fans, TH always admitted his lost with no excuses despite that he tried his best. He also admitted that LD is the current World's best player. Through these facts, I don't think TH is worried about his image after all. A good reason would be cuz TH knows that he is among the top players in the world who always have a chance to beat each other. Therefore, It's less likely that TH withdrew cuz he's afraid of his image losing again. It's more likely that he's really injured.."
