    MS -- Yang Yang >< Icuk Sugiarto ; TH vs LD ; Rudy Hartono vs Svend Pri

    MD -- LYB/Tian Bingyi vs Kim Moon Soo/Park Joo Bong

    WS -- Susi Susanti >< Ye Zhaoying

    Team competition, no doubt : CHN vs INA

    It is very hard to get X Ball banned because there is never a reason to. Of course, judging by some posts, they think I should be. I think the BC administrators have a lot of common sense and know the 'score'.

    As for BALL X, I wonder why he/she (and I still cannot tell whether he likes to be a she or a he, given that it was a she before he became a 'he' in her profile) -- hmmm....not worth figuring out anyway).

    Unlike Sampras-Agassi rivalry in tennis since juniors which lasted for more than a decade, it's very difficult to find a great rivalry in badminton. Anyway, here are my picks:

    WS: Li Lingwei (CHN) vs Han Aiping (CHN)
    MS: Too many
    WD: Dominated by CHN
    MD: Park JB/Kim MS(KOR) vs Tian BY/Li YB(CHN)
    XD: Zhang Jun/Gao Ling (CHN) vs Kim DM/Ra KM (KOR)

    Yes, I'm well aware of it. The reason why I didn't include Zhang Ning-Mia as one of the greatest rivalry because there are more dominant players during these period (1994-2006). Okay, they deserve a place in the top 10 greatest rivalry list, anyway.

    Btw, did Mia play against Zhang again in 1996 UC finals?

    i think it's more of a TH v LD v LCW rivalry triangle, especially recently.
    PG seems to have faded a bit, BCL/CY/CJ have had some dissapointing results as well.

    as for KKK/TBH v CY/FHF, i think the MAS pair still lack a bit of consistency to be considered true rivals. maybe Kido/Setiawan would be a better choice.
