    What you say makes sense - all the above is missing something, unlike Lin Dan who has won everything and more to spare. That's why Lin Dan is The Greatest Ever.

    But to me, Zhang Ning is still very special in that she could do what no other at her age could, that in itself is a phenomenon. As to who I think is the greatest WS? I don't know but I'm sure in future someone will emerge to convince everyone she is The One.

    Of course LLW is the greatest. World #1 in WS (also in WD ; means she is not focus in WS only), World Champion, and also the most important thing, 4 titles in Indonesia Open. Remember, it is very difficult to win in Jakarta with the crowd like that. The most extreme crowd in the world. Except her, no other foreign WS that can win Ina Open 4 times, especially when the crowd are against you :p. also, 3 titles in a row before she retired. Who else can match LLW supremacy ? No one :p

    Lin Dan already won the Asia Games gold in 2010 beating Lee CW - you can find the match on youtube, great battle.

    Whatever, to me,it's not necessary to win everything. Lin Dan's 2 OG and 4 WC are more than enough, nobody even comes close. And his H2H against his contemporaries, esp his closest rivals, is already an unmatched record.I'm even more impressed by the way he plays. In fact, as far as I'm concerned, he need not win anything more from now on and still remain The Greatest of All Time.

    But Saina won it 3 times through the support of Indonesia's crowd whom I say, the most extreme crowd in world of badminton. Totally differentwith the Chinese players (incl. LLW of course) whom are Ina's players arch rival. In INA open 2009 & 2012, the crowd support Saina and against the Chinese (Wang Lin & Li Xuerui). And don't forget, LLW not focus in WS only, but she still can win 3 titles in a row in just 3 weeks, plus the #1 status for long time. No one can match LLW superiority :p

    So her current husband lives in Germany now. That will be tough. If ZN continues to be coaching the Chinese team, there will be very limited time they can be together, and it's not good for the baby girls also. I wonder if ZN is considering coaching the German WS team.

    Actually LD also never won Singapore open / SS, Malaysia and Indonesia title. I think it is more valuable than EAG, and it is more difficult to win, especially in INA and MAS. That's why I said no one can win all of them, so lets count the number of major titles to decided who is the the most successful MS or WS of all time. The result is : Lin Dan in MS, and Zhang Ning in WS :p

    Found this on LXR's thread after her defeat vs Saina that are support by Ina's crowd : http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/104450-Li-Xuerui-(-李雪芮-)/page21
    this is not usual. Crowd in Ina is the most extreme in the world, even MAS 1994 Thomas Cup member was very affraid, not to mention the female Chinese players. Most of the players can handle the crowd in Japan, Korea and other places, bcoz they are not wild. Off topic : and it shows how great LLW is :p. 4 Indonesia open titles and 1989 World Championships title in Jakarta, facing against the wild crowd :p
    China, Korea and Japan crowd not silence. they just support their idol in normal way, just like in Denmark and AE. not extreme just like in Ina. Why INA crowd can't act like that ? No wonder if they called : uncivilized.
