Mention Lin Dan and a wry smile appears on Kieran Merrilees’ face, a disbelieving laugh and a shake of the head.

With four World Championship appearances already under his belt, Martin Campbell is a dab hand at performing on the biggest stage – but that’s not to say the Scot won’t relish every second of his time on court in Glasgow next month.
