    And for WS, Li Xuerui has the record of 36 consecutive wins in 2012!

    Oh? I am surprised. I've always assumed Lee CW held the MS record for the longest run of consecutive match wins.

    Thanks,Fortune, for pointing it out to me, assuming you're right.

    well, I'm not.
    typically there are 5 rounds to win a tournament. I think LCW's best run is 3 that equated to 15 consecutive wins.

    Hmm...you have a point there. Let's say he wins five tournaments in a row, that makes 25 consecutive match victories, and considering he's stopped by Lin Dan in 3 out of 4 meetings on average a year, that's just about right.

    Is Li Xuerui the recordholder in WS for the longest run of consecutive match wins? Btw, I thought it was 35 and not 36 consecutive match wins for LXR, I recall hearing the commentator GC saying that.

    may be she forgotten the one that she was commentating on?

    I would have guess that the 36 (or 35) wins must be a record, equivalent to 7 consecutive titles!!

    Perhaps. As for Lee CW, the figure cannot be multiples of 5 if he's to lose only to Lin Dan in the final, so that makes 24 the more probable case. Anyway, it's just speculative talk, only a proper research will reveal the facts.

    Chen Jin has announced his retirement to be made official after the coming China National Games. Right now he is the assistant coach to the CHN WS and he won't be playing in the Sudirman Cup or World Championship. Just as well in view of so many up-and-coming fellow MS in addition to his own fitness problem.

    He is known to be even tempered and patient among his team members and with his skills and rich experience,he should make a good coach. Wish him happiness and success in his coaching career. I suppose marriage is on the cards too after retirement.

    Im not surprised hes calling it a day. Hes had an interesting career, slightly overshadowed by the olympic qualification fiasco with team chinas determination to have 3 entrants in MS. He is the finest example of a player changing from an attacking style to one that capitalises on strong defence, a real tactician in that field

    I was shocked when I saw CJ at the World Champ in 2010. He looked like a zombie, quite different from the CJ of 2008 and 2009. I think he over-trained. He won that year, winning a very close semi against PG, so perhaps it was worthwhile for him, but after that he was never the same, always sick and loosing frequently in early rounds.
    A career tragic in some quiet ways, not whitout sucesses but somehow never finding his place

    It's sad that CJ retiring so early. He's younger than LD. He was thought very talented when he's young. There's no other players at the same age close to his level. Gong Wan Jie was long time the 2nd behind CJ in their age group.

    He was always expected to shine in the next tournament, but suffering from long time injuries. Anyhow, he managed to grab a World Championship, an All England title and an Olympic bronze medal, and also several Asian Championships.

    Chen Jin holds winning head to head records, against all Indonesia players, including Taufik Hidayat, Sony, Santoso,....

    Actually Chen Jin also holds winning head to head records against almost all players except Lin Dan and Lee CW. His h2h against Gade is like 8:3. He also hold wining h2h against other teammates, like Chen Long, Du Pengyu, ...

    His success has been shadowed and destroyed by Lin Dan and Lee CW. I expected him to dominate after LD and LCW retirements. But unfortunately, he even retired earlier than LD and LCW. That's very sad!

    It was reported that Chen Jin actually handed in his resignation end of last month and earlier on in Feb before the Lunar New Year and during the winter training at Dongguan he applied to be a player cum coach status and was accepted. Now he's doing on-the-job training and on probation as a coach for the WS. Till recently he was carrying back and leg injuries. He has also pulled out of next week's BAC at Taipei.

    With the retirement of Bao Chunlai, now Chen Jin and Lin Dan sort of in semi-retirement, CBA is apparently looking for a couple of MS players to shore up their strength in this department. Perhaps that explains why they are sending several young players and newcomers to the adult international circuit as happened in the AUS and NZ Opens.

    It had to happen sooner or later.

    Much thanks to Chen Jin for giving us many geat and memorable matches. A tireless worker and big-hearted performer. He will continue to be a great asset to the CBA. I wish him well in his new avatar.

    He was a great player

    Although he was hardly ever close to Lin Dan or Lee Chong Wei's level, he always gave them a good fight and showed us amazing badminton

    I always liked him because of his footwork, net deception and his beautiful overhead strokes. For me, he is a faster and more dynamic Chen Long


    But age and injuries have gotten to him and he wasn't able to perform consistently all this time

    I wish him the best and if I see him again I will defs give him a pat on the back and say "good job"
