Yonex BWF World Championship 2011: A match to remember...

The picture above says it all. Our Datuk Lee Chong Wei with the teary eyes on the podium after his lost to Lin Dan of China. It was a truly greatest men single match I have ever witnessed, kudos to both men for giving out such a exciting displays with all tricky and varieties of shots.

From the news:

The pick of the days finals was, without doubt, the men’s singles clash between top seed and world No 1 Lee Chong Wei and second seed Lin Dan.

The Malaysian won the opening game 22-20 but Lin Dan hit back to take the second 21-14.

That set up a thrilling decider in which Lin Dan saved two match points before winning it 23-21 on his first match point.

The 82-minute battle between the great rivals was so draining that Chong Wei collapsed backstage with cramp and needed extensive treatment.

Congratulations to all the winners, well done LCW...keep fighting !!!
