    Susi Susanti and Zhang Ning...perfection
    Gao Ling, because She wins with different pairs and will always put on a great show with her smiling face...
    Chandra Wijaya...Mr.Hardworking and dependable...always consistent and a great role model
    Lily Tampi and Finarsih...because they were the brickwall before the chinese put theirs in womens double..and they have completely different style of play yet compliments each other nicely...
    Last but not least....
    Liem Swie King...without Him, we can never see jumping KING smashes we see nowaday!!

    it's Taufik, there can't be more entertainment on earth than watching him on court
    for women -- there is the one and only Gao Ling, beside her outstanding skills on court - her amazing smile even when things went wrong made her the only Chinese I support, it's simple: badminton has to be fun and joy, not civil war!

    My badminton hero ...

    LCW!

    Because the man proved you dont need to win any major titles in order to be WR#1. All you need is a thick passport where you can just travel and play in numerous tournaments.

    Pretty hard to choose one. Probably Taufik Hidayat, Lin Dan, Hendra Setiawan, Wang Lin... I'll leave it there for now... too many others I could list, have to keep it short :).

    Yes, the most entertaining and exciting player the world have ever seen.
    NO ONE comes close even almost 25 years he first won the All England in '85 as a 19/20 year old.

    MD: i like sigit budiarto and Chandra Wijaya and Wijaya and Tony Gunawan... powerful play during their time now Lee yong dae and jung jae sung... especially lee yong dae... he's cool and not arrogant
    HEROINES? well wang shixian and wang lin - because they are cute hehehe...

    Taufik and Gade.

    Taufik because he was ranked top 3 in the world when he was 18/19, and as I'm 18 I can only dream of that.

    Gade because of his deception and because he's a good guy.
