...I think Lin Dan will keep #1, Taufik will end up #2, and Xingfang and Ning will switch positions.

well, Ive a feeling LCW will topple BaoCL this time, and become 4rth place...
Peter gade, has a chance of being 2nd, and Jonassen 3rd.
Taufik may have a chance of toppling Bao, but probably not LeeCW

i beg to differ. kenneth jonassen has more fighting spirit.
I think they both are very thought to play against, but Kenneth has
more powerful shots.
BTW, beside badminton Kenneth also plays golf, I heard that he is an excellent golfer.

Why doesn't anyone pick female players as one of their favourites ? Zhang Ning and Lin Dan are my favourite pro badminton players.

This may be the ranking in points...after winning WC, Taufik moves one spot from 6 to 5. If this is so, I think a lot of people would see it differently based on recent performance instead of points.
It will be very interesting when the numbers are finally crunched.

For WS, I especially like XXF for her aesthetics and vulnerability (you actually get nervous for her when it looks as if she may crack under the pressure and lose, even though she actually has great resolve to win). ZN is arguably the more complete player as far as technical skilled is concerned. XXF does have some killer overhead drops though.
My personal favourite MS player would have to be Taufik Hidayat. Most naturally talented player today. Best net play and backhand by far. His backhand is somewhat reminiscent of Hoyer Larsen.
For MS, ranking order after WC will probably be:
1. Lin Dan
2. Kenneth Jonassen
3. Peter Gade
4. Taufik Hidayat
5. Lee Chong Wei

why nobody pick double's players?
my fave players are Nathan Robertson - he's such a confident showman, and immensely talented with the racquet. after that it'd have to be jens eriksen.. both players are solid foundations for mixed partnerships.
girls wise - i admire gail emms, while lots of people say she isn't as fast or strong as the asian girls she makes up for it in raw determination, i've never seen somebody with that sort of mental strength. her and mia's win at the MVP cup really solidfied this for me, and the fact that she and donna kellog have rapidly reached the top 10 since becoming a partnership in the last 12 months.
there we go... all done
altho i can't help but sneak in that i think kenneth is great too. simply for his fighting spirit, his great backhand and that fantastic duel with xia in the QF of WC2003.

For me, MS- Lin Dan and Taufik .. Taufik is good at netplay and dropshots.. and as for Lin Dan i think he is good at smashes i think...
and MD i like Candra-Sigit they are good in attacking and defending as well.. Both are a superb player...
08-24-2005, 12:18 PM #146
it seems that Taufik and Lin Dan was the one who got the most support..
but my fav still kim dong moon..
no particular reason..but for me the way he played all the games is really awesome[wrong word??]
his partnership with ra kyung ming is perfect i guest..i really like them both
so sad he left badminton already....
since he left, i turned to Koo Kien Kiat
he is new..but since i watch him in Thomas Cup..i really addicted
but no doubt taufik and lin dan is best player currently
08-25-2005, 07:39 AM #147
soni because i absolutely adore him to bits
08-25-2005, 08:26 AM #148
Sorry for Taufik fans out there, I still prefer Lin Dan. Lind Dan is fit and have a lot of stamina. The most important element in badminton is
SPEED- LIN DAN
STAMINA- LIN DAN
TECHNIQUES- TAUFIK IS SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN LIN DAN
SORRY IF I HAD MISS SOME OF THE ELEMENT.
But for the most improve player and have done well in this tournament is Lee Chong Wei and Boonsak from Thailand.

I agree Taufik is amazing and my favourite but have you ever heard of rudy hartono he led indonesia to win the thomas cup 13 TIMES IN A ROW!!!!!
08-26-2005, 09:03 PM #153
I think it's understood that the original question refers to current players. So my answer would be Taufik, just because he's playing style is so beautiful to watch...especially that graceful backhand crosscourt drop.
But, I do agree that of all time, Rudy Hartono has to be tops...(after all I was named after him -- I was born a month after he won his 1st All England in 68)
