    The greatest player of his generation: Yes definitely, based on his results from the past five years.

    The greatest player of human history: You must be joking, the answer is certainly 'No' until he could match or break other players' amazing records. And I believe every 10-20 years to come we will see some greater players than LD.

    ya, kinda, i thot so too, that one off record but can't be compare to today's LD. It's like comparing apples and oranges. You see, back then

    1. china can't compete and there were many chinese great ones who can upset Rudy H. back then
    2. not many competent opponents except, Svend Pri, Christian Hadinata, Punch Gunalan. When Liem Swie King came along later, rudy H. was toast.

    Same thing like LD. Who can challenge him 'closely' beside LCW nowadays? No competition. Not many competent opponents. The rest just feels like cheerleaders.

    Can't blame him though.

    todays game is different than yesteryears very much a lot :cool: its very competitive and smart training/participation is the key for most winners:D

    even lin dan, supposedly to be the best today is still very much beatable.
    in 2010 alone how many times was he beaten? his last win in the tc 2010 is, of course spectacular - all won in straight sets but can he continue such dominance? i don't think so:D

    if the problem is home crowd "disadvantage", maybe the solution for LCW and malaysia is to stop hosting big tournaments. Don't bid next time ;) but in all seriousness, Lin Dan honestly is the best player in so far to make use of his surroundings and resources to his advantage. And that makes him the best ever. If the technology wasn't around, I believe Lin Dan would train twice as hard as he does now to make it up, and I'm sure he'd be a top player if he went back in time. But as for now, he utilizes his equipment, the technologies and training methods, his coaches, his work ethic and his style very well. Not to discredit any top player because everyone trains hard. But Lin Dan is better for a reason. Whether it's fitness or technique or power or speed, but Lin Dan seems to answer his critics every time he plays. Fan or not, the guy has achieved a lot and continues to be a top 1a 1b player in the world, bar none.

    i should clarify.
    I meant what few hartono's opponents have were near hartono's level.
    In LD's case, not many close to his level.

    I just watched the his match against LCW in the Thomas Cup, Lin Dan is back, but IMHO, he is a shadow of his former self, he is not the Super Dan that we saw in the 2008 Olympics. Its great that he can against LCW with more finess than his 08/09 aggressive style, but I personally feel that his 08/09 aggressive form suits him more. In this match, you can clearly see LD's net game is weaker and he isn't using his signature jump smashes to pressure LCW. His 08 Olympic final was so dominating, LCW could do almost nothing against his onslaught. Hopefully Super Dan will return in the next big tourney, its a shame to see a top level player on the decline.
