    Definetly Lin Dan. Although he's not my favourite player, but he's certainly the best player in the world.

    Chen Hong, Xia Xuanze, Yang Yang and Zhao Jian Hua are also good ! I hope to hear more about Ji Xin Peng, really never heard about him before.

    The greatest for China in my opinion were:

    1. Yang Yang
    2. Zhao Jianhua
    3. Sun Jun
    4. Xia Xuanze
    5. Dong Jiong

    My reasons:

    Yang Yang (twice world champion and 1988 Olympic Test Event MS Champion)

    Zhao Jianhua (All England and World Champion)

    Sun Jun (World Champion, All England Champion, World Junior Champion, World Championships Runner Up)

    Xia Xuanze (World Champion, 2000 Olympic Bronze Medallist, 2000 World Grand Prix Finals Winner, All England Champion)

    Dong Jiong (1996 Olympic Silver Medallist, All England Champion)

    Sigh! I don't remember Yang Yang ever beated Zhao before. My most favorite player, Zhao, would have been 3 times world champion (2 + 1), All England, and 1988 Olympic Test Event MS Champion if not because of lung problem.

    Sun Jun was only 5'5" wasn't he? I remember watching him play Peter Rasmussen in the 1997 world championships...that was one of the craziest singles games i've ever watched.

    I will definitely put Yangyang and Sun Jun ahead of Zhao. No doubt that Zhao JH is the best, natural talent wise. However, Yang Yang and Sun Jun earn more respect from me, due to their hard working, smart strategy and more consistantcy.

    Xia is my favorite, if you talking about the "fighting spirit".

    I think Yang Yang is the best, and then talent wise, Zhao Jianhua. The others are
    not in the same level.

    Sun Jun some times lose miserably when he is not in good shape ( for example,
    1998 Thomas cup, losing 1-15 or something to Peter Gade in the first game,
    it looks they are not in the same level during that game), but I can't remember
    any such things happen to Yang Yang. Even facing a peak Zhao Jianhua or Morten
    Frost, Yang Yang can manage to make the game look quite even and get a lot of
    points. Therefore I put Sun Jun below Yang and Zhao. Worldwise, I put
    Peter Gade > Sun Jun > Hendrawan.
