    What has this thread degenerating into?

    The singles and doubles games have been evolving independently all along. They are tactically very different, involves a different core set of strokes, and also different situation awareness.

    However, there have been cross fertilization between the disciplines, partly due to players crossing over, and bringing a different perspective along. Peter Gade was a European junior MD champion, and Wong Choon Hann started out as MD player.

    Kim Dong Moon and Ra Kyung Min, MD, WD, and XD specialists, both started out as singles players, even though South Korea has a strong tradition in the doubles disciplines (unlike China, whose MD squad gets only discards from the MS squad). More recently, Xia Xuanze, MS World Champion, enjoyed a fair bit of success in XD because of singles shots that he injects into the game.

    Professional players from the badminton powers tend to concentrate on one discipline, because the competition within the national squads is so intense. In other countries, it is common to have professional players playing all disciplines they are qualified to play. For example, in the Singapore National Championships, Ronald Susilo plays MS, MD, and XD. Kendrick Lee sometimes play all three disciplines as well. US national players also play three disciplines (e.g. Eva Lee playing WS, WD, and XD), when the draws are favorable (i.e. entry into the qualifying or main draws).

    Of course, being practically untouchable in the MAL MS squad, Lee Chong Wei might decide he wants to play XD as well. But the MAL XD squad is rather large, so he might not actually make it into the squad. More importantly, Lee Chong Wei has no XD ranking points to speak of, so he won't even be able to get into the qualifying rounds of any big tournaments. Hence, we do not see Lee Chong Wei playing XD.

    Hey Winnie...I advise not to bet against Sabathiel, cos he could excel in both WS and WD and, what the heck! even XD. Do you know why?...because Australia is not a badminton country, there is no bloody good players down under, there with no competition and the folks there probably can't tell a birdie from a real bird, so you can play any or ALL positions and win them all...Hahahaha! Unlike CHN, MAS, KOR, DEN and INA, heck you cannot even make the reserve team, maybe if you apply for the job to pick up used birdies you might have a better chance...hahaha!!! LOL!!!
    Sabathiel, I do not mean to make fun of you...just to have a little humor and a good laugh.

    I don't have to proof anything because I didn't come up with a theory. Jack came up with a theory that it is impossible to excell in singles and doubles internationally so I told him nobody has tried and therefore prove his theory is correct. It is the one who comes up with the theory who has to prove it is correct. I didn't say you can excell in singles and doubles internationally so I didn't have to prove anything to anyone. I simply doubted Jack although I admit that it is possible he could be right but unless it has been tried then we don't really know for sure.

    Peter Gade according to his website was the World Junior MD champion.

    On the topic of US national players, this year (2007) Howard Bach won the MS, MD and XD in the US National Championships.

    You are right Australia is a badminton dwarf in world badminton but on the current form we are doing better than Canada judging from performances at world level and last year's Commonwealth Games. Even with ex All England champion, Ardy Wiranata, coaching Canada still is not doing better than Australia.
