    Susi Susanti, Ye Zhao Ying and Gong Zhi Chao. These 3 woman hv the best skills ever, especially Ye. Dont think any woman singles nowadays can match them in terms of skills, not even Zhang Ning and XXF.

    Susi Susanti!

    Honourable mention to Camilla Martin the lone European crusader against Chinese domination in WS.

    Lene Koppen was great it's just too bad we never knew how she would fare against the Chinese players as the Chinese wasn't part of IBF in her days.

    Susi Susanti!

    Grace under pressure, brilliant in mental warfare, remarkable endurance, heavenly-speedy footwork and sense of timing... compensated for her lack of power and shot variety...

    Absolutely agree. Susi's footwork is the best even for now, Gong ZhiChao is the close 2nd.

    Wong Mew Choo is in there basically cos i like to watch her play. not that she's the best of all time but yea. I just think that she is already considered one of the best tempered players around.

    MIA AUDINA!!! My all time favourite, however she could never reach her full potential though she had the guts...her weight was a drawback to her career...

    She is good but not that good to compare with other chinese players(not the junior ones).I watched her playing mia audina during Indonesia Open 2005.I have to admit that she has good fighting spirit.

    Wong Mew Choo still not that stable yet from the way she plays. I seen before. Sometimes create surprises only. Depends on her form. Compared to XXF, XXF is more stable because XXF wins regularly. When a player reach a certain standard, her game will be stable. This apply to every badminton player. WMC still needs to take another step higher. That's my own opinion. No hard feelings ya.

    From my opinion here they are :

    1. Susi Susanti
    Her 'perfect' achievement in young age tell the truth how spectacular she is. Look at this fact below :

    - All England title : 1990,1991,1993,1994 -- she became AE winner for the first time when she was 19 y.o, Susi born on 11 February 1971.
    - World Champion title : 1993 Birmingham in age 22.
    - Olympic Gold Medal : 1992 Barcelona when she was 21 years old.
    - World Grand Prix title : 1990-1994,1996
    - Many2 titles from IBF GP-series
    - UBER Cup : 1994, 1996
    *One-package prestigious title (World Champ + Olympic Gold + All England) is the hardest mission to do for every shuttler but Susi did it.

    2. Li Lingwei and Han Aiping
    Both Li and Han are the BEST WS players that China has produced so far compare than Ye Zhaoying/Gong Zhichao/ZN/XXF or others. Special credit : Li and Han are good WD too, so amazing and brilliant they can play in two categories singles and doubles!
