We have not seen Lin Dan since his win over Lee Chong Wei at the London Olympics 2012. It has been rumored that Lin Dan will make a comeback during this year’s edition of All England but the fans will be very disappointed as Lin Dan will be absent.
Lin Dan was granted six months leave by the China BA after the Olympics.
This makes Lee Chong Wei as the hot favorite to win his third All England title. Even Lee Chong Wei is bemused on Lin Dan’s absence but this will not stop Chong Wei’s motivation in winning the All England title.
Nonetheless Chong Wei will still be wary on his chances as China will be sending Chen Jin, Chen Long, Du Peng Yu as well as other potential challengers from other countries.
We do really hope to see Lin Dan back as soon as possible as without him on court, Chong Wei has romp passed all his opponents without much problem.
