    Question Who will retire after OG08???

    KJ, PG and ZN are the first 3 names come right out of my head as the three of them are in their 30s already. Other possible players I can imagine would be TH, LHI, XXF, SSM, WCH and LD.

    For double players I would say CTF/LWW? JE/ML? TG/CW? Maybe GL too?

    will XXF retire, prolly not, she's still young.

    LHI just came back to competing regularly, so again probably not.

    hasn't WCH already said he would quit after the OG?

    well, i don't think he's waiting for the OG.
    i doubt he'll be able to qualify for it anyway.

    I remember I read somewhere that LHI returned because he wants to give OG a last shoot before he retire from the badminton career.

    WCH already said he will retire at the end of 2008 after his yearly contract with BAM expires.

    CTF/LWW is either end of 2008 or maximum till WC 2009. LWW said depends on CTF's decision.

    Msia player maybes is WMC due to her knee injury although she's still young . She did say she wanted to tough it out till OG.


    JE/ML already announced that they're retiring after OG 2008.
    Others would be Zhang Ning, SSM
    Taufik is still quite young at 27. If he doesnt win AE this year, he might want ot wait a year or two to win it & make it 4 major titles.
