    Son Wan Ho has returned to the national team. He will still be officially on his military service until late 2014. His name has been confirmed for the Thai Open, the Indonesia Open, and the Worlds. It is also on the BWF list for the Sudirman Cup, but not on the BKA's list so he won't be going.

    I predict SWH will be in the top 5 next year at the same date. He can now replace LHI.

    Well, he doesn't even have to wait until next year.
    SWH made it to no 3 in the world rankings now, with his impressive performance at the Denmark Open.

    And both JOJ and Tago are loosing points rapidly now. Plus they're both struggling with minor injuries causing, etc.

    I think Tommy Sugiarto might have a chance to reach the numbet 4 spot within short, although it probably will be a temporary situation, I don't see him keeping ahead of JOJ and Tago when they regain their full strength.

    Also Tanonsak and Tien Chien seems to be on the move. They are both at the top if their game right now.

    It will be very interesting to see how much momentum Son Wan Ho can carry from here on.

    Ohh, I was too quick with my ranking calculations there...

    JOJ and Tago are not loosing their French Open 2013 points until next week.

    And of course I miscalculated WHS's total, by including 11 tournaments :-(

    He's at #6 now, but closing in fast on the 3 players above.

    It'll be interesting to follow.

    I remember watching the 2014 HK Open live on TVB and seeing him beat Chen Long... Awesome!

    he's is not too constant. But as far as I know he got injured in the beginning of the year (?) and played not that well.

    But I think when he is fit he is easily top 3. Last year he also regularly beat Jorgensen and other top players.

    Last year he did great, and really stepped his game and results up a notch.
    But "regularly beat Jorgensen and the other top players" might be stretching it a bit. They are 1-1 going 12 months back, and 2-1 going two years back.
    He also beat Chen Long two times in the same period, which is by itself is a great achievement, but he had more losses to him than he had wins.
    However, his peak game was indeed on par with the best, so if he can keep himself in good shape for a longer period and stay hungry, I'm sure he'll advance from current ten to top-5.
    :-)

    I can't recall the circumstances of his injury.
    All I recall is that he withdrew from the super series finals back in December. The tournament where H K Vittinghus really got his "breakthrough" (after having beaten SWH in one of the first matches).
    Don't know if he got his injury there, or if he had if already before the tournament.
    I hope he gets back to speed soon, so he'll be ready for the WC and the olympics.
