    More than the num 1 title
    he got datuk title,Woman of his life.
    he has all the reasons to keep being the best.
    Pressure comes and go.But he has the best defence.
    Wish him the best luck.

    i agree with the earlier post saying that LD doesn't mind being #2 since he has achieved being the Olympic Champion (GOLD)

    ranking matters to LCW though, it is one of the determinants of his monthly salary, no?

    Rank can be pressure but also can be motivation......

    #1 and #4 seeds are always in the top half of the draw ???

    .
    :eek::eek::eek: Sorry if there have been a change in the making of the draw that I have not known.

    I have always known that the #1 and #4 seeds are always in the top half of the draw, while the #2 and #3 are always in the bottom half.

    Perhaps someone from the BWF can enlighten us on this matter.

    1) That one reason. It's BAM quarterly incentive. If I remember correctly WR#1 & 2 gets same quarterly bonus. #3 & 4 get another amount & so on.
    2) The draw for tourneys like what chris@ccc said.

    You should do a search before opening a new thread. The reason is that LD's points from last year expired, and he hasn't competed for a while, while LCW has. So therefore, LCW has more points than LD, and now LCW is #1

    although LCW has manages to topple LD's record over the last couple years, i don't think he'd feel that they were very satisfying ;) i'd think he'd like to earn the WR #1 spot after a huge win over him or something. correct me if i'm wrong, but he hasn't ever been WR#1 before has he? only the time in 06 and now right?
