I see many and exciting emerging power trending based on the few SS tournaments post the England 2012 Olympic: MS : Post LCW, LinDan, Taufik and Peter Gade era, I have been impressed with the landscape where emerging young players from India's Parupalli, Malaysia's Daren and Danish players like Jan O Jorgensen and Viktor Axelsen are becoming a regular contenders when LCW, LinDan are nowhere around. The Ranking I think is still in this order: CHN, then the rest (all countries: MAS, INDIA, DENMARK, HONGKONG/SOUTH KOREA/JAPAN -- I am not impressed with Indonesia at all: the players are already too old and too late if they never won SS). WS: I am really impressed with THA ladies. They are young, agile and can go head-to-head with CHN. CHN is not a power-house in this category. CHN, THA, GERMANY's Juliane, TAIPEI and INDIA's Saina dominate here. (No Indonesia ladies at all) MD: I am pretty certain the SOUTH KOREA will dominate. The Koreans pairs shuffled post Jung Jae Sung's retirements surprisingly rise to the top and won 2 SS already. No any other CHN pairs will dominate after CY/FHF. KOREA is on top and they will win most of the SS, then DENMARK. After those 2 countries, the rest are JAPAN, CHN and INDONESIA and they will only win the GP tournaments. XD: CHN is still the best in this category. I am disappointed with the top 2 Indonesian pairs. They both lost to CHP/LYG. This Malaysian pair is making the news nowadays. The ranking for XD : CHN, then INDONESIA, MALAYSIA, DENMARK. WD: CHN is still on top. They seems to have new pairs that rise to the top and dominate the event so quickly.Ma Jin is a monster. She is the XD/WD top specialist over powering Zhao YunLei now. The ranking for WD: CHN then DENMARK, JAPAN. Please chime in with your opinions. Thanks.
