The National badminton stars went back to their normal training routine after finishing the All England Championships. The first workout included games against their teammates. Lin Dan and his partner worked hard in doubles, but lost their game.When will Super Dan be Super again?

Lin Dan, world and Olympic champion, says, "Lose it! Lose it again! I seldom win the games on Thursday."

   Dan is expected to star in the Asian Championships.  Dan, along with eight of the world’s top 20 shuttlers, including Indonesia’s Taufik Hidayat, are expected to feature in the US$150,000 Yonex-Sunrise Bad­minton Asian Championships in New Delhi, India next month.

Malaysia’s world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, who won the All England title earlier this month, will not be competing in New Delhi.

"Super Dan" lost both of his matches at the All England Championships. First, he lost to sixth-seeded compatriot Bao Chunlai, and then got knocked out by Denmark veteran Peter Gade, a player he hasn't lost to in four years.

Lin Dan, world and Olympic champion, says, "It's normal. I don't think it was a surprise. I think if my opponent's form is better than mine, and I can't play well, then I might lose the match."


Lin's lack of match play after the end of club matches last year may be one reason for his bad performance in Britain. Lin didn't reach the semi-finals of the All England tournament, so he will try to gain more points at the Asian Championships on April 12th.
