    let's throw in more names:

    Han Aiping
    Li Lingwei

    should be way up there on the list as in their days, the two of them completely dominated the WS scene. (as well as WD when they partnered together)

    who's before them? were there any dominating LS players before Han and Li?

    My preferred ladies players:

    - Han Aiping;
    - Yeh Zhaoying;
    - Zhang Ailing;
    - Bang Soo Hyun;
    - Susi Susanti;
    - Camilla Martin;
    - Liu Xia;
    - Lee Youngsuk;
    - Liang ChouXia;
    - Gong ZhiChao.

    I heard about 1 lady that was dominant/undisputed in China, back in the 60's/70's. Her name is Chen Yuniang but unfortunatelly never seen her play.

    ive seen Lene K°ppen a lot of times in television or in a hall when she support her child Marie R°pke. Lene K°ppen was just as great a player as Camilla is today ... by the way Marie R°pke her daughter is a very talented player only 15 or 16 years old.

    Watched her playing and also Morten Frost back in 1981. Traveled to Guangzhou, China specifically to watch that friendly between China and Denmark. Too bad Lene lost to Zhang Ailing and Morten injured himseld during warm-up. But at least watched Morten in the prectice sessions with the Danish team.

    Never knew Japan have 5 times all England Champ. Maybe i concentrate more in mens during those times. Only knew Susi Susanti and some the ladies during the 80's and 90's. Hiro Yuki.. when did she won All england?
