    Your MS is a long shot... The best are in Ottawa by far.

    I've always thought our top Canadian players are GOOD...but ever since I got a chance to watch them play in the Toronto Open, it was a major disappointment. They were making unforced errors and their power were that of any chinese lady player. I guess we'll never be able to see Canada in any major tournaments for a long time...

    Don, I looked on the actual IBF rankings and I found that the top Canadian was Bobby Milroy being #48 in the world.

    Default 2001 Czech open winner

    I have seen Boby playing in the last year Czech Open and he was really good. The final match was very dramatic. He was playing against French guy Lasmari. The result was 3-2 for Boby. I have nice memories.

    That ranking means nothing. He's not the top player in Canada, there are a couple of guys in town that out rank him nationally and can and will beat him. Milroy plays in many international tournaments (not big ones) accumulates points and gets a decent ranking. Look at Hingis, same deal, plays in many little tournaments and racks in the points, but can't seem to compete in the grand slam against the Williams sisters. Milroy is not the best Canadian MS player.

    Can he beat Debeka or Wzokicijic (I don't know how to spell the last name)? I always see results of it's Debeka and Wzokokojic in the finals, haven't seen milroy in a while. The two I have mentioned have pretty much dominated the singles ranks in the last few year in Canada.

    the best canadian born badminton player I know has lived in england all his life and plays in local league clubs - but he's the best - in my opinion... sadly... he's not mine! This pantherlike icon is heaven to watch - not only when he plays badminton but in every walk of his life - he's just drop dead gorgeous ........

    That's true. World ranking depends on how to play in selected tournaments.

    There was an Australian men's doubles pair that got to the top 16 a couple of years ago. I saw them play on TV - technically had a few weaknesses. It was strange how they could get so high.

    They entered the Swedish Open (1 star) as top seeds. I think they got beat 1st or 2nd round.
    My conclusion is they must have entered the regional tournaments with lower level competition which they won and then managed to accumulate points.

    ooooh, I couldn't possibly name the person! They are one of the many people who frequent this forum (although under many different names!), and I wouldn't want to embarrass them in public!

    Brave New World. It is interesting to know about people you have never heard of before. It tells you that you may be reaching that 'use by' date. The only Canadian I ever heard of in the Badminton world is Denyse Julien but this Canadienne is from yesteryears, I suppose. John.

    Canadian national badminton training are not disciplined enough... and our national training program does not promote sport as a career... but rather a recreational passtime... if you happen to make it to the national, then you are lucky.. if not.... too bad....

    Until the National Sports Program changes its ultimate vision and objective, Canadian National Players will only reach a percertage of what the Asian players are playing now..

    Yo Steve, I read your other posts. Whos your coach? Making kids cry! I think I'd rather keep this sport fun and not train 24/7 for it hehe. but my opinion.

    I guess if you really wanted to go pro, you would need a coach like that though.
    Anyways... I'll still go with fun over going pro:P
