Thread: Lee Chong Wei is now No. 1

He won the World Open eight times - a record - and would have won again in 1997 if the event had not been held in Malaysia (for legal reasons, he couldn't enter the country). Jansher also won the British Open six times consecutively.
In all, he won 99 international tournaments and was the World # 1 for over six years.
"It's a great achievement. Wonder what is the record, similar to this, for other sports and/or for other nations."
Does 'other sports' exclude squash?
In fact, comparing Lee Chong Wei to Rudy Hartono is quite unfair to Hartono.
The Indonesian won the All England Open (an international title) eight times - seven of them consecutively.
The Malaysian hasn't yet figured in even the runner-up list!
Staying with international badminton, please look up Ethel Thomson's record at the All England Open.

i don't see any harm in Datuk Lee setting 10 years target
as National Champion, nothing wrong at all...at personal
level, is a great achievement for him and for national level
it will be a record and might go into Malaysia Guiness Record?
who do not want to be remembered?
is up to the juniors to buckle up...we cannot blame Datuk Lee
for dominating the scene...
as for international level...we know Datuk Lee would like to win
as many title as possible....maybe until today he havent really
win a major title...as many said his mentality problem...
but he did try his best and won some SS titles (5 to be exact)
so why we are making a fuss over trivial matters???

The winning of the 5 SS titles made Lee Chong Wei the No.1 in the world
Agree. It's the winning of the SS titles that made Lee Chong Wei the No.1 in the world.
His winning of 7 consecutive national titles only made him the No.1 in Malaysia.
And it is to be expected, that if he is the No.1 in the world, then he should be the No.1 in Malaysia. Am I making any sense here?
