    which community are you asking, player or spectator?

    to clarify your original ?'n i reformatted it. apparently some readers think there are 3 choices instead of 2.

    Thank you for clarifying: I think just in terms of players/spectators, just as a general badminton community:

    Would you rather have (a) 10+ SS titles + World Championships vs (b) Olympic Gold Medal?

    Olympics gold is for 1 person. How many persons could attain it? It comes every 4 years. Even badminton powerhouse like China could not repeat the feat they attained during London Olympics . Even though they try to close the gap in certain areas, they still find it difficult to cope in certain discipline. WS discipline is one such area, where they have been struggling for more than w years now. Now, MS is going to be very interesting.

    That is true. So should we weigh the previous world champions heavier then? When World Championships were only once every 2 years. I also agree that MS and WS will be very interesting, but I believe it is better for the sport when there's more countries/players that can win, keeps the competitions exciting to watch.

    Saina?
    Third place in london 2012, first and second place are chinese
    Third place in asian championships in 2010 and 2016. Again, first and second place are chinese

    She disrupted the great wall of china in 2015 when she's runners-up of AE and WC and no chinese is the champion

    He was talking about 2008. Nowhere he mentioned that she was at the top of the podium or the greatest of all time. Disruption is totally different if you really read what he spoke about.

    Yes. When she reached AE finals and WC finals, she encountered Sun Yu and Wang Yihan respectively.
    You might have missed Australian Open 2017 , where Sun Yu defeated Saina and the way she wept after the win tells you the story how difficult to win Saina . By the way , I never seen Sun Yu weeping anywhere. That was the first time I saw her weeping. We have to consider that Saina still did not reach her form after her operation .

    correct. it's nice to know some people read carefully and understand context. disrupt does not mean to take over.

    disruption - to interrupt or alter so as to prevent normal or expected outcomes.

    for that, it's not new, she's not the first one as mention above. I don't think chinese have anything to disappoint that time around

    Bottom Half of Men's Single is anybody's to grab.

    In a way, MS is exciting without Lee, Lin, Chen but is this good or bad for badminton? Hmm..it sure make it looks more competitive

    David G Freeman, undefeated Men's Single throughout his entire career. He only participated once in All England in 1949, in which he won the tournament. He defeated Ooi Tiek Hock and Wong Peng Soon in both All England and Thomas Cup (though the american team lost the Thomas Cup) If you are looking a player from the past, I would say Freeman is one that should be included.
