    Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei are two players who in my opinion 2 greatest players in this sport of all time for sure. i have seen these two greats play so many times on telly and fortunetly i have seen them play individually in All England 08 as well as 09. both of the players have their own style of play in the court. both of them play as if it is not a game it is some thing else just so beautiful to watch. every time i see these two play i see they bring something new to the courts both technique and style wise.:D

    Now my question to you would be which player's play would you prefer and why??? and what makes them so different to each other???:cool:

    **feel free to answer any ways you would like :)

    Lin dan using his weapon either armotec 700 old or new color , i believe he is still the best. Lin dan and Fu hai feng has the best smash in the world!:D

    LCW no doubt is a good player, however he should not be included as Greatest of all Time...

    Lin Dan has my vote thou! No one shows as much determination and explosiveness as him!

    LD's achivement already put him in line with some of the greatest, but LCW's current collection is still a good distance away. Unless LCW somehow breaks his barrier and last long at peak, only LD of the 2 will be remembered as "one of the greatest" in the later days. :eek:

    Personally i think Lin Dan is one of the best player out there. LCW no doubt is good too.. but Lindan is better.

    After the Olympic plus the ae, for instance, Lin Dan is surely the best player.Any opposer here? Not even the 'bolehians.'(^_*).

    As for Lee Chong Wei, no way he cannot beat him.Stick to my point- he need to downgrade Lin Dan in their game.Ld is beatable. The quality of the best player may vary by time. Take the chances and play ur game, dear.
    As long you did that, you are our best player.

    The OP asked people which player you would like to play like. There are dozens of other threads discussing the other subject people have brought up.

    Personally It has to be LD. Just to be able to take everything an opponent can throw at me then just up the pace and kill the rally in a couple of shots.

    I have changed the thread title to suit the topic more.

    his style is so effortless. if his health is 100% (he was plagued with lung problems), he can beat anyone.

    Who would I like to play like??

    Honestly, I would like to play like LCW.

    Why??

    Because I get rewarded heavily by the Malaysian government even if I dont win anything. I get to be a Datuk at a very young age and I get to tell people like Eddy Choong & Wong Peng Soon that unlike them I dont have to win anything and yet still be a Datuk and get rewarded big time. Plus, I got a huge band of Boleh fans who will support me till the end of time.

    Malaysia Boleh!

    I'd like to be blessed with:

    Shoji Sato's speed
    Lee Hyun-il's patience
    Sigit Budiarto's smash
    Hendrawan's deception
    Nguyen Tien Minh's grit
    Peter Gade's overheads
    Lin Dan's straight clears
    Sigit Budiarto's net-play
    Tri Kusharyanto's tactics
    Zhao Jianhua's backhand
    Peter Rasmussen's footwork
    Taufik Hidayat's nonchalance
    Lee Yong-dae's determination
    Hendra Setiawan's anticipation
    Ardi Wiranata's crosscourt clears
    Lee Chong Wei's crosscourt drops

    There's more... but this should be enough to kick any butt :p

    it would be neat to mash in the images of each of all those players into computer model and spit out one composite image so see what would be a perfect MS player's face would look like.
