who is the best/innovative style player in the world?
there are so many stylish players in the world. off course without a doubt we have linDan, P.Gade,T.Hidayat, L.C.W, plenty of doubles men, women, mix and many many more.i just love watching different players play in different styles to bring in something new to the badminton world everyDay
who in your opinion is the most stylish badminton player in this 21st century who has brought style, innovation, creation, new moves etc to this simple game and made it more interesting for us not just to play but to watch&learn too
well what do you think

no doubt.. TH and Lin dan

I'd go for Taufik Hidayat, he has different style to other players & have other unique qualities, same with Lee Chong Wei's style & defensive play.
and Wong Choong Hann's nice footwork. =D

Taufik is gifted.

The most creative....
I'd say Tony Gunawan or Mia Audina (retired).
Lin Dan is also very creative (surprisingly so for his style of play). Taufik had a great style and netskill... Peter Gade is very deceptive
Actually, there're a lot of good things you can say about pro's...
Maybe that's because they're some inhumanly good
This is about as challenging as arguing which colour is the prettiest

black of course!

Peter Gade in the early 2000's came out as a very explosive player and he attack a lot of shots. He also came out as a deceptive player. Known for pulling risky shots and using unorthodox methods to win the game.

...I'd go for TH as well...an artist indeed!
For the rest I'd mention Lee Jae Jin (KOR) and Nathan Robertson (ENG) - both capable of exquisite badminton moments, and for the ladies Gao Ling (CHN) and Lilliana Natsir (IND).

I am surprised nobody mentioned LYB for his innovation of match fixing. LOL.
Back to topic... Peter Gade is my choice. Or Lin Dan's triple dive shot retrieving technique

Aside from the ones already mention...my money is with Sigit Budiarto and Hendrawan.

taufik plays like in a dream.
04-10-2008, 02:34 PM #13
Sigit Budiarto for MD!!!
Taufik Hidayat for MS!
04-10-2008, 02:45 PM #14
Yang Wei perhaps? She pulls of some ridiculous stuff on court.
04-10-2008, 02:58 PM #15
Taufik for MS. He pulls out moves which you couldn't even think of before.
04-10-2008, 03:06 PM #16
imma gonna go for sigit, you just never know what he's gonna do next.
i'm surprised candra does, at times ...

*okay, enough picking on KKK, before our koo_fan is upset*...
As for the "best/innovative player in the world in this century", well, i think it's a bit early as it's only been 8 yrs, isn't it??...So, i think the answer should come in about 92 more yrs...
