    Yeah but then this is how it goes. Lee Chong We is playing superbly well now. I even sacrificed the Lee / Yoo match to watch Lee Chong Wei match. :D

    Well, I knew that as a die-hard LD , you cannot admit it... :D

    FYI: LCW was taking pain killers during the Olympics '12 because his ankle was still hurting... Even LD admitted that he was taking advantage of a not fully recovered LCW in an interview.

    The good news here is Lee Chong Wei have never lost before to Chou Tien Chen winning it in straight sets all the time. So I guess me and you already know the answer even before the match starts tomorrow.

    No worry, H2H record is not up to date yet because Lee/Yoo won against this DEN pair last week in Denmark, 21-16 21-13.

    CTC is much better than he was the last time he played LCW so maybe it can be exciting

    According to tournamentsoftware, they've never met before.

    EDIT: beaten to it! Denied!

    Yes I can lots of new skills from Lee Chong Wei. I learn how to win the matches convincingly even when you are aging and getting older.

    CTC will crush LCW. CTC is a bit like Chen Long style.

    LCW not fully recovered from his sprained ankle at LOG? He was moving so fast, playing superb badminton, nobody would talk about his ankle, for every single one of his opponents who was beaten by him , that was never an issue worth mentioning.

    9 times to LCW as compared with 34 times to Lin Dan, that's one-sided, overwhelming, the more so when the 9 times were spread far between. It was not like LCW won the last 6,7,8,or 9 times, in which case that would be most telling.

    Another thing is when it mattered, i.e. at the majors, where both of them wanted to win very much and would go all out, Lin Dan won every single time, no exception. In other words, whether the score was close or by a clear margin or lop-sided, it made no difference. Seen in isolation, yes, one close match appears significant, but as a whole, in the context of their overall H2H, it pales in comparison.

    Yup, I can't remember they met before. More reasons to catch this match. It could go either way.

    Well,You were asking me if he could win that match and I told what I feel honestly(not speaking as a LD fan)....I guess 'leaving shuttle' has nothing to do with pain killers.......... and he wasn't taking any pain killer in WC11 finals when as per people's predictions in BC...he was supposed to destroy LD 21-8 21-12......If he believed he was a better player and he had the 'skills',he would have won that one as well........I don't think it's just mental problem,gameplay and own intelligence has a lot do with these near death situations...

    Similar to LCW, getting the confidence back.

    Okay I saw Kang Kyung Jin coaching both Ko Sung Hyun / Kim Ha Na. Ha is really an overrated coach in Korea. :D
