    yes, thats true.
    AG = unofficial tourney of BWF.
    just the same with Invitational World Cup & Commonwealth Games

    For me, it's got to be the Olympics, followed by the All-England, and then the World Championships. I still think the WC has lost some of its appeal since it became an annual event, i wish they would change it back to bi-annual.

    1. Olympic Gold
    2. WC
    3. AE
    This 3 is the ultimate.

    ..keep Olympics, as is....but bump up the World Championships to a tri-annual event and then AE to a bi-annual event....Now, that would really put the 3 events as the Grand Slam events of badminton..

    hahaha, the AE shouldn't be changed, it's been going on for over 100 years, i'm sure they'll want to keep this traditional going.

    How does YY compare with LD? As far as I know, both of them had won WC twice, and AE.

    And who won more grand prix?

    Thumbs up taufik hidayat

    Future Grandslam Winner will be Taufik Hidayat (until he wins AE, hopefully this yr):
    - World Championship (1 gold 2005, 1 bronze 2001)
    - All England (2 runner ups 1999, 2000)
    - Asian Games Individual (2 Golds, 2002 and 2006)
    - Olympic (1 Gold, 2004)

    Not to mention that he is the first player ever who held 2 big titles at the same time (olympic and WC)..yeah..

    No doubt Taufik will be considered one of the all time greats!
    Yeah, only the All England title eludes him... He better do it soon, otherwise he will be too old... [maybe he is already too old...] Prove to us that you're not a 'has-been', Taufik!

    A few months ago, I met Taufik in a Jakarta dance-club [where else can we meet Taufik off-court?!? ], I actually told him that I wish he shall win the Olympic gold medal 2 times. He just nodded and smiled, but did not say anything. [I guess he doesn't want to make promises he probably cannot deliver...]

    Psst....don't talk so much about Asian Games. One guy here already mentioned that Asian Games is an unofficial tourney which is therefore NOT IMPORTANT So, Taufik's 2 Golds in the Asian Games are worth nothing u see....

    Quotes from 2cents (taken from IBF still thins Lee HI the top player while Chen Hong not)

    Smaller scaled means smaller entries. I knew and also said Taufik won Asian games. He needed only 4 matches (think about it one more time, just 4 matches ) to win the Asian games, in fact, which means the best of only 16 players.

    Larger scaled tournaments, like all England, used to be more than 80 entries, and at least 6 matches to claim the title. With the introduction of super series, all tournaments become smaller scaled than before, but still larger than Asian games and Olympics.

    I really think that my thoughts are so common and natural, although so many people here don't agree. If in any other sports, other than badminton, the more prize money, the more important of the tournament; the more entries, the better of the tournament; the more high ranked players, the higher level of the tournament. How come here in badminton, everything's upside down? Asian game? what a joke!!! without any European players, without world number 2 Chen Hong, without world number 4 Chen Jin, without world number 7 Chen Yu, without Sony, without Roslin, even they are all Asians, but has players playing with Hijab in the top 16! How can you rate such a joke game as the best tournament? Olympic is the same joke but in a little bit larger scale.

    I don't care who that guy is who said the Asian Games is not important... But from what I know, Asian Games medals are very important for the Indonesian government, thus, they help give Rp 10 billion to PBSI [our national badminton body] through KONI [our national sports body]. Funds in the amount of Rp 10 billion is important to fund travelling expenses to tournamanents for the youngsters [such as the large contingent of INA youngsters going to the German Open this week]...

    So even though the Asian Games is frankly not part of the 4 Grand Slams, but hey... it is important [at least for INA badminton]...

    Ok, remember, this thread is not about the all time greats, but about the Grand Slam of badminton [which are indicators of all time greats]. So, I will entertain your comment a little bit, but not too much, Winston...

    Yes I am serious about considering Taufik as one of the all time greats in MS badminton... Taufik has won:
    - Thomas Cup
    - Olympic MS Gold
    - World Championship MS Title

    Yes, not in the past 2 years... but how many other MS players have achieved these feats in their careers?!? Out of more than 1,000,000++ professional MS in the past 50 years, how many?

    Oh, by the way, Taufik won the 2007 Asian Championship title in April 2007.... Your claim that Taufik did not win any international title since INA Open 2006 is plainly not true.
