    Confidence is good but if over-confidence, thats bad.

    Good luck to DLCW.

    Here is a question for you, name me another Jahanger Khan in squash? Why compare such legend with LCW? Why not Rudy Hartono? Is this comparison even come close to the being 'fair'. :confused: :confused:
    Are you sure you are not having too much christmas todi?

    who knows? maybe lee chong wei just sound out this statement just to let all the youngster in the squad to have the 'determine' attitude in their mind to beat him in the future of course.;)

    IMO, If really need to motivate the juniors to beat him, LCW doesnt need to set this target.
    I believe those juniors are determined enough. who wouldnt want to beat the OG Silver medalist ?

    Jansher Khan :)

    He won the World Open eight times - a record - and would have won again in 1997 if the event had not been held in Malaysia (for legal reasons, he couldn't enter the country). Jansher also won the British Open six times consecutively.

    In all, he won 99 international tournaments and was the World # 1 for over six years.
    My post was in reply to chris@ccc. Here's an extract from what he posted:
    "It's a great achievement. Wonder what is the record, similar to this, for other sports and/or for other nations."

    Does 'other sports' exclude squash? :eek:

    In fact, comparing Lee Chong Wei to Rudy Hartono is quite unfair to Hartono.
    The Indonesian won the All England Open (an international title) eight times - seven of them consecutively.
    The Malaysian hasn't yet figured in even the runner-up list!

    Staying with international badminton, please look up Ethel Thomson's record at the All England Open. ;)
    I nearly did after reading your post :D

    As for the Masters Finals, Chong Wei has set himself a target of reaching the final in the inaugural event.

    just reaching the final, he doesnt stated that he wants to win the title here;)
