    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

    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 :D.

    it's not unhear of for sportsmen to retire early at the peak of their careers.

    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.
