    He needs a huge smash.
    Without a huge smash, you won't consistently be a threat to your opponents.

    Chen Long rose to WR #60 after his semi-finals performance at India Open and finals appearance at Asian Championships.

    One should expect CL to rise to top 10 in the near future. Maybe top 5 in a few years. But IMHO even if he reach No. 1 some time in the future, it would be just a short period, like WCH and Roslin once did.

    I will keep that Super Dan's word. It's like hear Cowell to say "Hey Leona, u're gonna make it" ..and she did.

    Chen long, prove him right.

    I didn't see that...:confused: What I saw is LD saying something like "CL is of the same height as BCL, and CL is physically stronger". :cool:

    Because, IMHO, comparing to BCL in 2002/03, CL has more power but is

    1. not as good in techniques; 2. not as good in agility;

    Considering his height, I don't see him improving much in agility. Also he is so big that he will not be able to play "Chinese style" for a long time.

    Overall, I don't think CL will do better than BCL or CJ.
