    MS - Hendrawan (INA) i really admire this guy, hes much older than most of the other players and yet hes able to keep up with the top players of today. Also, right when people thought he was too old, he was crowned the World Champion

    MD - Tony Gunawan (INA) Being a mixed doubles player, i really watch plenty of doubles action on tv to watch the tactics closely, my favourite MD player is Tony Gunawan, he has been the guy that has always encourage Halim when they were losing in matches. A great source of inspiration and excellent badminton

    LS - Gong Zhizhao (CHN) Before she turned pro, people said that she wouldn't never make it because she was too short. But she trained hard and made it to the top 5 and was even crowned Olympic Champion. Though her performance has been shaky as of late, she is still my favourite LS player.

    LD - Ra Kyung Min (KOR) I've watched her in her matches and she is truely a great player. She never loses her temper and seldom makes mistakes. When she and partner loses a match, most of the time, it isn't her fault.....

    MX - Tony Gunawan (INA) Although Tony only partnered Marissa Vita for a while in MX, in my opinion, he is still the best doubles player today

    Re: Favourite Player(s)

    MS: Hendrawan - I started watching badminton because I saw him coming back from many points down in a match on tv one day and got so impressed by his strong will and determination. Skills aside, he's a really hardworking, humble and respectable guy. Great role model.

    MD: Candra - He's one of the nicest pple on earth. Tony too. Such fantastic players and Olympic gold medallists, yet more humble and friendly than so many other players.

    On the ladies side, I'm most impressed by Ra Kyung Min.
    I like the combination of Kim/Ra. They're very good. But I agree that the match against Tony/Vita was a really close one. Very entertaining and exciting!!

    I'm sure there're many new players we can watch out for as well. =P

    MS: Peter Gade has everything but not best in one. I like the way Hendrawan play, however, I feel that he needed more power, even that since he was younger. Now I like Xia,remind me of Michael Jordan,when I saw his FADE AWAY SMASH.

    MD: Tony and Jandra are the best. Have you seen Pramote from Thailand, the way he place the shuttle.

    LS: Ruina if more consistency.
