    Default Who's the best player at the net?

    Normally in men's doubles, there is a distinct role each player has,

    especially in an attacking position; where the front person becomes the 'netman' and the back person becomes the 'baseline smasher'.

    I feel that the netman is the key to win in Men's doubles...his role is like a quarterback in American Football....setting up shots for his back partner to violently hit the shuttle downwards. 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.

    You forgot Tony Gunawan. I myself like both Cai Yun and Tony Gunawan.

    Currently, definitely Setiawan. I would say his recent performance is above both KKK and Cai Yun, and is close to Tony Gunawan in 05.

    One person cannot beat two He only mentioned one name.

    Best forecourt men's doubles player today is a good question.

    Hendra must be a favourite.

    Tony = brilliant
    Sigit = excellent

    but yeah, i think currently, the best net players are in MD are cai yun, kien keat and hendra. i'm still a big fan of taufik's net play though, i always wonder what he'd be like playing in MD. certainly would have given all the frontmen mentioned here a run for their money.

    Guys like Rexy, KDM, Tony and Sigit were the best ever. Currently, i only see KKK and Hendra hv to potential to become great like them.
