I think Michael is too old to be star, dont you think? as he is 26 yrs old....he may have a good 3 to 5 yrs to perform....
For WS, I think Larisa can be a good force

Thanks for all the input so far from fellow BCers..
I might be too subjective coz i only know most of the names for MAS Juniors. I wish to get more input on many others players from various countries..
I still needs more info about rising women badminton players (includes XD pair too) to make this list more prefect

For INa MD:
Albert saputro/Rizky Krenayadi.....
09-09-2007, 01:11 PM #115
Also Tan Aik Quan, Kuan Kam Chung, Teo Kok Siang.. but they're younger. Maybe too early to say whether they'll shine as future badminton stars..
Julia Wong, Lydia Cheah.. and some players of the younger batch..
(Project squads' players: http://www.bam.org.my/about.php)
I'm not sure whether Yoke is 21 or 22.. Rian for sure is 22, turning 23 in November..
Fitriawan?? Is that Devin Lahardi..
Fernando Kurniawan is Fran Kurniawan's younger brother.
There's also Chen Tianyu.
Jan Ø. Jørgensen is not that old, he played Arif before in some junior tournament.. I think it's German juniors..
Rune Ulsing (24 y.o.) (photos: http://www.fjerbolden.dk/spillerne/ulsing.htm)

Raj Popat from Wales.. Hehe, he had been to INA to train in Tangkas before..

In a way, i'm waiting for a European/non-Asian WD pair or pairs to rise to the top and start challenging the Asian WDs..It's been a very long while since professional badminton witness a non-Asian WD pair at or near the top of the WD world ranking (anyone knows/remembers when was the last time this happened?)..
