Ok, maybe the 2nd set will be different for CL. But I doubt it. My guess is, CL is the type of player whose game starts to drop around 29 years of age. Kind of like Taufik, how Taufik's game dropped in his late 20s. Since Rio 2016, CL hasn't reached that level of play. And to be fair, LD tired LCW out in the semi-finals which helped CL in the gold medal match. This goes to show you how impressive LCW was that he could maintain much of his game at 35 years of age. And LD was also quite good up to 34 years old. But not CL, his game has dropped a lot since 2016.
