Best player 6" and over
Who is the current best, and all time best player 6" or over?

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?

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').
