Hmm... In my opinion, Lin Dan lost cos he made too many mistakes. If the other 2 seeded Chinese players are going to learn from the lesson, Susilo may face more difficult fights ahead. It is likely that he will be facing another Chinese player for a medal match.
It is too early to be happy, still long way to go.
Another top chinese players must learn from this failure....everybody is chasing the gold now after world no.1 was out yesterday.
Last meeting, Susilo already beat Lin Dan in Japan open 2004, ...but this is in final match.
They supposed to meet at peak match., otherwise .... too tired for the player to fight for another round.
History in the making! Go Ronald go! Win an Olympic gold for Singapore!
My personal view with regards to foreign talent policy, we generally recruit young players who are unfinished products and gave them a chance to train, bloom and represent Singapore. It differs from other countries that import finished products.
