    Well I think Zhao Jianhua was over 6'. Right now, I'd say PG (If he's over 6') or CH is the best

    Singles, doubles or Mixed?

    Male or female?

    An all time best player over all disciplines and gender will be impossible to suggest.

    Men singles. There are a lot of doubles players over 6 feet. Reason I'm asking is like look at all the top players right now, taufik, lin dan, PG, LCW, lee hyun ill... none of them clear 6 feet do they?

    How about Hafiz Hashim? He should be over 6'.

    Well let's see - there are several current MS players over 6' tall, including Peter Gade, Wong Choong Hann, Bao Chunlai, Hafiz Hashim, Roslin Hashim, and Kenneth Jonassen. Both Chen Hong and Lin Dan are relatively tall and around 5'11" if not 6'. Several retired players are 6' and over, including Poul-Erik Hoyer-Larsen, Dong Jiong, Fung Permadi, Allan Budi Kusuma and Thomas Stuer-Lauridsen. I think a more interesting question would be how many top players are under say 5'9", but even this list would have several players including Lee Chong Wei, Sun Jun, Hendrawan, Yang Yang and Ardy Wiranata.

    Funny thing about Zhao Jianhua: when I first saw him playing in videos, I could have sworn that he was over 6' tall, considering the ridiculous angles he could get on his smash. I then talked to an ex-international players who had met him back when he was playing, and he told me he was about 5'9" (same height as himself so he could judge). Now that I look back at my tapes, I can see that the angles he gets is by virtue of his tremendous vertical.

    LOL! 6" = 6 inches. You mean 6' = 6 feet right?

    What about asking who's the shortest MS player? Just interesting to see how they can move around the court and retrieve side smashes. There's one taiwanese female player who looked extremely short but seemed to play relatively well. Forgot her name... but I guess it would be different in men's singles.

    Best 6'+ ever - Zhao Jianhua
    Current best 6'+ - Peter Gade (but I really doubt if he's really 6').

    I think Yao Ming is. And he much much higher than 6'.

    The shortest one in the top 30 is Shoji Sato of Japan at 167cm. He is tiny.

    These are all 6' or over...

    Bjoern Joppien 1.92m
    Muhammed Hafiz Hashim 1.88m
    Kenneth Jonassen 1.88m
    Bao Chunlai 1.87m
    Chen Hong 1.82m (but IBF has him at 1.81m)
    Peter Gade 1.84m
    Shon Seung-mo 1.82m
    Wong Choong Hann 1.83m
    Niels Christian Kaldau 1.83m

    but...

    Lin Dan 1.78
    Ronald Susilo 1.77m
    Taufik Hidayat 1.76m
    Lee Hyun-il 1.76m
    Boonsak Ponsana 1.77m
    Lee Chong Wei 1.72m
    Sony Dwi Kuncoro 1.73m
    Xia Xuanze 1.78m
    Ng Wei 1.76m

    are all under 6'.
