    Yes, i totally agree, Sigit is super sharp at the front. Only that sigit might be a little error prone.

    For the "show" purpose, my vote goes to Sigit. For the "win", I prefer Tony and KDM.

    Hendra Setiawan's netplay has indeed improved a lot in the past 1 year.

    i'm a big fan of jens eriksen - especially his deception at the net.. and his height and reach mean he intercepts loads.. pretty good for a guy that is almost 40!

    Yeah, that's where the "wizard" kicks in.

    If it's the best frontmen in MD ever, I would vote for Sigit.

    If it's currently then it's kind of tough. However I would say the top 3 would be Cai Yun, Hendra Setiawan and Koo Ken Keat. All of them are very fast at the net and can enforce in the back as well.

    These 6 front players are indeed the best ones. But personally i still think tony gunawan is the best among them. Reason being; him winning WC MD title with howard bach in 2005, especially playing against candra/sigit in the final.

    Tony's nickname for frontman is VIPER...........in his heyday, he is the best one along with Sigit...

    Agree. Sigit at his best is simply unbelievable. A combination of superb physique, superb anticipation, and superb technique/touch.

    I have to say I like Setiawan's style most, seemingly effortless yet lightning fast and lethal.

    I wonder what would happen if they had a chance to play against each other (age and health being the same of course)?????
