Discussion in 'China Professional Players' started by kooixh, Jan 9, 2009.
is lin dan retired from playing badminton,whyis it because of olympic gold medal
No he hasnt retired.. he is skipping the Malaysia And Korea opens along with the rest of the china team..
I think he's preparing for AE 2009...most probably...
he just letting others to play catch up
If he does retired, DLCW will be No.1 in the world, practically.
and also on paper
Now,it is a good question.Justine henin had quit in her peak.
Thread starter's question is somehow debatable.
I know lin dan was not here for some 'reasonable' reasons.Whether or not a super player like him will retire in his glorious days,is always an interesting discussion.
some players have a "i'll quit while i'm on top of my game, so i'll be remember being top" mentality
For LD case, why not? He had won all important titles.
To spend a lifetime training and getting to where he is he may as well make the most of it while he can. Perhaps his next goal could be ALL titles .
No.. he hasnt won Sabah 0pen!
He had won MO in Borneo once.Is is acceptable?
Any other tournament?
Well, the biggest tournament left for LD is Asian Games.... if he retires, his achievements wont be completed.... just like TH, hasnt won All England
it's not unhear of for sportsmen to retire early at the peak of their careers.
bjorn borg retired from tennis at the tender age of 25.
Even All England?
does anyone have a list of his accomplishments? and what he hasn't won? you know, in case he does retire lol...not that he would, and i'm sure most members here know that
Even if he does retire today, LD is already a legend.
If he retire now, he will not be able to earn RMB 10Million a year he earning now!
If it's about money,Lin Dan could have used his celebrity title to work on it.
i hoped he'd stay coz he loved badminton,n thats all.
