I hope this is not a mistake lol.
nope...this is not mistaken...
lcw have more finalist than ld...and yet...1 of ld final is TO...grand prix gold only...less ranking point...
ya, LD didnt play for 2 months for OG training.
Does lcw get ranking point for beating LD at the thomas cup?
does LD's olympic winning count in the ranking point?
Yup, Lee Chong Wei is current MS world #1 per 21 August/08. Previously LCW also had ever toppled LD as number one player in 2006 (short period).
Do the Olympics count in the ranking? Because before OG wasn't Lin Dan number one?
I hope this time the ranking lasts, not like 2006. Doubt it though.
i agree with lcw being ranked 1st because he's played (and won) more tournaments than ld latley and it's not like you can let the olympics count like a 37 star tournament or something like it
but i don't really look at rankings you know
lin dan has proven to be the better player, so be it
yeah, LD being away for a couple of months training for the OG has caused him to drop a few points because he missed a couple of SS events.
i expect him to jump back up to the top again soon though.
yep. he's sure to be back to the top. although i kinda felt good to see LCW in the no.1 spot
ya, if feels nice like sunlight on your face after years of under LD's shadow Enjoy it while he can lah because the eclipse will be coming back soon LOL
Players will be glad that they will meet different players in their draw
What is interesting is, now that he is ranked No.1, LCW will be in the top half of the draw in our next tournament. And LD will be in the bottom half.
So it is good for our next tournament; LCW will meet CJ, while LD will meet BCL, that is assuming all them 4 are playing.
I am also quite sure that many other players will be glad that they are no longer required to meet LCW or LD in their same halves of their draw.
I think meeting BCL is probably easier then meeting CJ.
But like it really matter if LD and LCW is on the top or the bottom half of the draw. They're the 2 big guns and the chance of beating them are slim to none so like it matters.
i do like to see a bcl - lcw match in this JO
bcl's job was to do damage to lcw in the OG but didnt got the chance.
bcl now want to show us not only his bigger brother LD could win over lcw.
not necessarily so.
the #1 seed is in the top half, and #2 seed in the bottom, agreed.
#3 and #4 seeds are then normally drawn randomly into the top and bottom, so it's 50-50 who meets who.
You can take away the world ranking #1 spot, but you can't take away the OG gold medal + the sponsorship money + pension plan from CHN gov't.
Nod. LD already #1 ranked for years, no big matter anymore. It's not like someone keeping track of this kind of record or has much meaning in prize money
Lin Dan chats with Lee Chong Wei...
LCW: How about I will exchange the WR#1 spot +OG silver medal for your OG gold medal?
LD: That's not enough, you know...
LCW: But you have been WR#1 for so long, don't you want to keep that record going?
LD: Not really... it doesn't matter at all, now that I am the OG gold medalist.
LCW: Okay, how about this? I will even put in my Datuk status... you can then be considered as a Datuk, too + you will get back your WR#1 status + OG silver medal.
LD: I don't live in Malaysia, you know... why would I want to be a Datuk?
LCW: oh... yeah... well... fine, how about WMC?
LD: well... let me think about that...
Next moment, a huge slap across the face from XXF to LD, and another one from WMC to LCW ended the conversation right the way
Well done LCW! Win Japan Open and you will ensure that No1 spot will be yours.
I think being #1 is going to add more pressure to LCW. I prefer him to stay as #2.
