KUALA LUMPUR (AFP) A rampant China underlined their dominance of world badminton Sunday by pounding Indonesia 3-0 to emphatically win a fourth consecutive Thomas Cup title. The victory cemented Chinas reputation as a leviathan in the sport after their women were shocked by an unfancied South Korea on Saturday, and boosted morale in the camp ahead of the Asian Games in November. It was absolutely perfect everyone in the team played their best, said coach Li Yongbo. This was the first outing for the team since the Beijing Olympics so there were some changes in the tactics to ensure the best preparation. Even though we struggled at the beginning including with some bad line calls we have had experience of these occasions and we took our chances. Outspoken Li had confidently predicted victory for his women but later claimed it was good for the sport to let other countries have the chance to win when they lost to South Korea in the Uber Cup final. He said Sunday: It was enough to give up the Uber Cup. We werent going to give up both. The Chinese men were hot favourites, boasting two of the worlds top three singles players. Temperamental talisman Lin Dan, who handed a demoralising defeat to Malaysias world number one Lee Chong Wei in Fridays semi-final, led the charge with a stunning win and then called for an upgrade to first class on the short flight home. It ought not to have been so easy against Indonesias Taufik Hidayat, an Olympic and world gold medallist, and a player who can beat anyone on his day. But Lin blasted his way to a 21-7 win in the first game at Kuala Lumpurs Putra stadium, before securing the second 21-14. Hidayat, the only member of Indonesias Thomas Cup-winning side in 2000 who is still plays at international level, last met Lin in the 2009 French Open final, when he was beaten in straight sets. Again, Hidayat had no answer to Lins deadly combination of precision long drops, aggressive drives and clinical smashes. Lin, who has been on top form in Kuala Lumpur, dismissed suggestions that he was in a league above his opponents, saying: Beating them is not that easy because I sweat a lot. Tonight, we are going back to China and Im very tired now, so hopefully I can change from economy to first class. Although it was a one-sided affair, both players brought the capacity crowd to its feet on several occasions, cheering on by far the most exciting rallies of the tournament. Lin is in good physical shape, said Hidayat, 29, a veteran of six Thomas Cup campaigns. But the time will come when there will be a youngster who will beat him. He is growing older and the youngsters will come up and he will suffer the same fate. The world number eight pairing of Cai Yun and Fu Haifeng then put China firmly in control of the final, beating Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan in a three-game thriller. At the end of the first set it became a mental battle, Fu said. We had to prepare really well to win this match. It was then up to Indonesian number two Simon Santoso to prevent a whitewash but his best wasnt enough and he lost a titanic struggle to world number three Chen Jin 19-21, 21-17, 21-7, handing China the Thomas Cup.
