    Who's he best left hander in your opinion ?

    I dunnoe why but I have a natural liking for left handers. I had always liked to watch players like Lin Dan and Fu Hai Feng. But of all, I admire Choong Tan Fook most.

    I think the contenders for this thread should be Lin Dan, Lee Hyun II, Fu Hai Feng, Yoo Yong Sung, Flandy Limpele and Chan Chong Ming. Wad do you think ?

    If the scope is widen you will see names such as the famous lefties of the 80s - Zhao Jianhua, Yang Yang, Xiong Guobao.

    My fave is Yang Yang. He is simply... fooh!~

    For singles my vote goes to Zhao Jianhua as best left-hander of all time. Xiong Guo Bao I believe is right handed.

    Zhao, yes. On the doubles side, Choong Tan Fook is very talented.

    Xiong is lefthanded as well. Viver, your memory must be fading:)

    Actually i think Xiong Guobao is right handed because on a VCD (Master Skills from Mr. Xiong Gaubao) he seems to be playing with his right hand.

    Gotta be Lin Dan for the moment. But it seems that his peaking time is finished after losing at Malaysia Open and the Olympics.

    I think Xiong Guobao is right-hander, my vote goes to Zhao Jian Hua, he is simply invincible. Bao Chun Lai is not consistent while Lin Dan is over confident somethimes.

    Really? I have heard that Zhao Jianhua was a very streaky player... he's almost invincible when he's good, but average on his offdays. Yang Yang, on the other hand, was more consistent throughout his career.

    Yeah, I got a training vcd featuring Xiong Guobao. The guy's a righty.
