    Yeah. As for me, if I have replied 2 times and no conclusion, let's just say we agree to disagree
    I'm secured enough to not get offended and to keep my opinion while the other have different view. Normal thing.

    Hendra is back on form so he's owning it at the net right now. He often moves to play the next shot before the opponent has even played their own shot!

    Hi, interesting thread and I also have an opinion. Unfortunately in Germany we don`t have any TV coverrage of Badminton, but since Youtube exists I watch all the important matches. I can`t say anything about the players og the 70s or 80s, but from most of the rest I saw quite a few matches. Just recently I have started again to watch every video I could find including the best front player ever: This has got to be HENDRA SETIAWAN!!! I think it`s hard to compare with the "older players", because the game developed. But compared to KKK, CY or LYD I`d always say Setiawan. How one can look so calm and be so lethal at the same time is amazing. I liked him with Kido but this year with Ahsan you can clearly see, what an exceptional player he is. He steers the rallies with his clever placement and is also very effective from the back, although he doesn`t have the most power.
    Really, guys! He is spectacular!!!

    Wholeheartedly agree, he is just so awesome at the net, his reading of the game skill is a level higher than the rest of top MD players at the moment! He does not need those mind games displayed by some MD pairs, as he is THAT good

    The legendary Tony Gunawan has my vote. Always so calm, so poised on the court.

The netman normally wins the point by driving or smashing directly near the net which is almost impossible to return.
    The net man is also a very strong leader...cocky and very vocal.

    I feel the best netman in World badminton today are:

    1) Koo Kian Kiat: a delight to watch...arrogant...and creative...one of the best badminton brains.

    2) Cai Yun: Pure attacking player...sets up Fu Haifeng very well....also has a killer diving net smash...nasty desposition on court...intimidates opponents.

    3) Hendra Setiawan....very good at intercepting crosscourts clears and drives...beautifully sets up Kido for jump smashes

    4) Lee Yong Dae....creative player with lightning speed...sets up Jae-Sung
    well

    5) Jens Eriksen....his height enables him to intercept weak clears with devastating net smash.
    totally agree, love kkk the most
