    Well from the Mainland Chinese perspective, winning All England is the stepping stone to achieving greater success on the international stage..

    That's how Lin Dan, Wang Yihan, Wang Shixian, Li Xuerui gained their international fame after winning the all england but it wont be counted as a star

That is a mandatory achievement..Wang Lin ,Wang Xin and Chen Long are the only existing Chinese players that have not won the All England which i believe they will in due time. However the win wont be attributed as a Star
    I thought the AE was comparable to Wimbledon for most players?

    Well you be the judge. I go with the majority that feels winning All England is compulsory for every top player. It's a shame Zhang Ning who won the gold twice in Olympics never get the chance to win it. The Chinese women singles are too competitive at that time.

    As for Taufik, to be honest nobody really cares about him because he has been defeated too many times and achieved nothing since 2006. Cant blame people for thinking that way

    Zhang Ning never achieved much success in major tournaments (World Championship for instance) but she did extremely well in SS and Grand Prix circuits throughout her career.

    Her Two time Olympic Gold Medals made up for her defeats in major tournaments like World Championships and All England.

    Zhao Yunlei and Wang Yihan both need an Olympic gold to be on the same greatness height level as Lin Dan as both of these girls have achieved so many or too many success in SS and major tournaments

    lol imagine Lin Dan with two maidens standing next to him to be idolized as well for completing a Grand Slam

    haha. maybe as someone ever suggested here, they should sew LD's shirts biggest star in gold colour.

    in the end, congratulation to LD, CY and FHF for accomplished their 'minor mission', fulfilled 5 stars on their kit with such achievements.
