Why Taufik Will Not Participate In Ae
The reason why he will not participate in the AE 2006 are:
1. The tournament remains a 4* event.
2. He is getting married in February. Preparation for his wedding (once in a lifetime experience].
3. He has won in two highest and the most competitive events (Olympics and World Champiosnhips). He wants to give other players to become a champion. He is not greedy.
4. He has nothing else to prove to the world that he actually is the greatest and best Badminton player in the Badminton history.
5. I can prove that he is a living legend in badminton....A lot of people are dissapointed, even very dissapointed whenever he does not participate in a tournament.

BUT I don't agree for the rest as he already said officially via media that his next target is ALL ENGLAND, so it's NOT because of 4* event nor he wants to give chance to others, unless he had already won many ALL ENGLAND titles like Rudi Hartono, but the fact is NONE in his bag, so I am sure it's not because of that.
To me, the reason that make more sense of his cancellation is his preparation of the wedding.

The only thing that I really want to see again in the future is the big match between Taufik Hidayat (holder of Olympic Gold Medal, and World Champion) vs. Lin Dan (1st Rank and Holder of World Cup).
The match between these two strong player will be the most long-awaited match and represent a classic match between two giants in badminton.

the 2nd reason is the most convincing one & the 5th is kinda acceptable

Another reason that my friend pointed to me regarding why he wont come:
6. He feels that he is not ready and won't win the AE
I feel like it's more reason number 2 but... who knows. What you think about it?

-Taufik has no AE title
-Taufik is a strong personality therefore very likely a man of 'his own principal'
-Taufik has laid claim on 2 titles (Olympic and World) and lived up to his promise
-Taufik has promised the an AE title before he retires!
THE ONLY LOGICAL CONCLUSION A BADDYNUT LIKE MYSELF CAN COME TO IS
---------------------> TAUFIK IS NOT RETIRING IN 2006. PERHAPS ONLY AFTER 2007 AE

And, I'm voting for Peter Gade or Lee Hyun Il anyways...

I have not followed the pros for long, but I admit I was a bit surprised to hear the announcement that Taufik was the greatest badminton player in history
On another note, why would the title of KING of badminton be decided including Taufik? Lin Dan has obviously done all duties to rightfully claim the #1 position, and currently Taufik is ranked at #10.
jug8man, no need to worry, I hear Taufik does not plan to retire until the time of the 2008 Olympics

"Belum tahu, saya belum membicarakannya lagi dengan pelatih dan pengurus (PB PBSI)," ujar Taufik yang dihubungi Selasa.
Taufik mengaku semula berencana akan ambil bagian pada turnamen tertua Federasi Bulutangkis Internasional (IBF) tersebut namun hingga saat ini belum diputuskan akan berangkat atau tidak.
"Mungkin besok (Rabu, 21/12) saya akan bertemu pengurus untuk membicarakannya," katanya.
" I am not sure, I need to talk about this again with my coach and PBSI," said Taufik when contacted on Tuesday.
Taufik admitted that he wanted to participate in AEm however, until now no decision has been made whether he is going or not.
" Perhaps tomorrow (wednesday, 21/12) I will meet PBSI to discuss this matter," he said.
I HOPE TAUFIK CHANGES HIS MIND!!!!!

This has also been proven, among players, Lin Dan admitted that the most dangerous player on earth is Taufik, Chen Hong also feels the same way. Chen Hong has always had Taufik's phobia and that Phobia is beggining to approach Lin Dan now. The same thing has also been admitted by Peter Gade, he has lost in his last 4 IMPORTANT encounters agaisnt Taufik.
It is true that Taufik has not won AE yet...but it is just a matter of time. Remember, Taufik almost grabbed the title when he became the finalist twice ...when he was only 17 and 18 years. he lost to Gade and Xia Xuan Ze.
He was a wonder kid and a living legend....and without doubt the greatest badminton player to date. In every tournament Taufik has always attracted the attention of the press.

Most will agree that Taufik is a very good badminton player but to say he is the greatest badminton player in history is highly debatable and is unfair to the other great names that have graced the world badminton scene in the past! And to put all the great players under the same microscope without taking into account the different conditions they underwent is not realistic.
If I have to chose between Rudy Hartono and Taufik Hidayat, without hesitation, I'll choose the former, Rudy. Why? Because apart from the 8 All-England title record that Rudy holds, his behaviour on court had been far better than Taufik's. If badminton was included in the Olympics during Rudy's era, I'm sure he would have won at least a gold medal. For the All-England then was the unofficial world title!
Exactly what do we mean by 'greatest'? Is it just playing skills and winning major tournaments? If so certainly Rudy is not found lacking! Does greatness include the player's behaviour on court? If so, Taufik's behaviour has not been a good role model, many will agree.
Some would even say that China's "The Thing" is the greatest player, skill-wise, even better than Rudy. But, unfortunately, because of politicial intervention, "The Thing" did not have much opportunity to display his prowess until well past his prime at over 30 years of age. And what about American Dave Freeman, who consistently beat Singapore's great Wong Peng Soon? And some of the great Danish players who were champions in their time? Now, how would we know until they have crossed swords to decide the winner! And what sort of criteria should we use?

Rudy win a lot of title when badminton scene wasnt that competative.

hahaha I think the word "the greatest" would invite more arguments and debates, some more you add "in history", then I bet it becomes never ending argumentation. It is very very subjective. Even if IBF would to choose one of them to be crowned as "the greatest in history" it would still be highly debatable.
I would rather use "one of the best players in his era", although still be debatable, but less
As a comparison, I would not dare to say "Roger Federer" is the greatest in history, although he is undisputed world no 1 now.
