    Badminton: Gloomy days ahead when top shuttlers call it a day
    By K.M. BOOPATHY

    2008/11/25

    AS China's back-up players were embarrassing several big names in the just concluded China Open Super Series in Shanghai, our second liners were resigned to do battle in the lesser known international challenger event in Kota Kinabalu. Malaysia did win three out of the five titles at stake but the sorry state of our future prospects explains Malaysia's predicament and gloomy days when the current crop of top shuttlers call it a day.

    Kuan Beng Hong started his career in the junior ranks with World No 1 Lee Chong Wei and Hafiz Hashim but to see him winning his first international title at a satellite event is baffling.

    What is more disturbing is that younger players like Chong Wei Feng, Tan Chun Seang, Arif Latif and Chan Kwong Beng are hardly in the same class as Beng Hong which means the BA of Malaysia (BAM) must treat this issue seriously.

    BAM received a major boost when the government approved a RM24 million proposal to build a national training academy in Cheras but more importantly, the national body must look at the talent pool and plan ahead to fill the vacuum which will be left when the current batch are through.

    China used to be in a similar predicament with only Lin Dan their true match winner while the likes of Bao Chunlai and Chen Jin regularly caved in due to pressure.

    But now China have their young legion waiting in the wings and some have already started making an impact. This group have been impressive in all but the men's doubles.

    Qiu Yanbo, Du Pengyu, Wen Kai, Gong Weijie and Zhou Wenlong competed in the recent China Open and there are other back-up players including Chen Long and world junior champion Wang Zhengming at China's disposal in the men's singles.

    Yanbo has taken Chong Wei to three games twice this year while Pengyu upset Indonesia's Taufik Hidayat to reach the last eight in Shanghai.

    Wen Kai upset Denmark's No 3 Joachim Persson on his way to the semi-finals.

    Chong Wei himself has said that Zhengming, Lin Dan's training partner, is a player for the future.

    China's women's singles have been boosted further by the presence of Wang Lin, Wang Yihan and Zhu Jingjing who are regularly beating their seniors, while Cheng Shu-Zhao Yunlei should become the dominant force in the women's doubles next year.

    Malaysia's only consolation is that Chong Wei is still good for another three years while women's doubles Wong Pei Tty-Chin Eei Hui should be around till at least the 2010 Asian Games.

    The men's doubles is the only department which has several promising young pairs coming up the ranks and doubles head coach Rexy Mainaky's task is to turn them into world beaters.

    Even Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong are good enough for another six years while world junior champions Mak Hee Chun-Teo Kok Siang and Ong Jian Guo-Goh Wei Shem are the ones who can make it big with the right guidance.

    Let us look at China. Their Singles players are so strong that their 25th Chinese ranked player might even fit into the top 100 World Ranking easily. But they don't get a chance to participate, and therefore they are not found in the top 100 World Ranking.

    Any stronger player who is taking a break from tournaments would surely find his/her ranking fall. And, any not so strong player who is working hard to participate in as many tournaments as possible would find his/her ranking rising (if he/she doesn't get knocked out in the first few rounds).

    The ranking system is right for those who participate in BWF and SS events. Whoever participate will only duly have the right to earn their points in it.

    However having the top rank for example LCW having the #1 spot cannot be justified unless he is consistently prove himself winning titles. But he did indeed played more tournaments than LinDan and technically the system will give him more points in the Ranking.

    Default LD's No.1 on court, LCW is just No.1 on paper...

    Within one year (from and including last HKSS in Dec 2007 up to the China SS last week), LD entered 8 competitions, vs LCW's 12 (excluding team events).

    LD's achievement: 5 champions, 2 runner-up, 1 semi-finalist, i.e. all finished in top 4.
    LCW's achievement: 2 champions, 6 runner-up, 2 semi-finalist, 2 stopped at 1/16 final.

    So who's the real world No.1 on court, who's the No.1 on paper?

    Therefore the badminton world ranking system is a joke at this point...

    Thumbs up Welcoming Jonc108 to play our Badminton Central PAW Games

    .
    All our Badminton Central PAWers have never argued over who should be our No.1 player in our PAW Ranking System.
    Our PAW Ranking System is similar to that of the WBF's.

    Perhaps we should welcome you to play our Badminton Central PAW Games. And there we can learn something from you on how to decide on who should be ranked as our No.1 PAW player.

    BWF should give small point for runner up....
    the different between champion and runner up now in super series is so small gap....

    BWF should look at tennis

    LCW is a credible, deserving world number 1.How many MS WN1 are there in the past 5 years?
    If you're trying to belittle LCW's efforts, let me enlighten you about how LD won his big tournament titles.LD has won his big tournament titles because he has the fortune of teammates waiting for him either in the Semi-finals or finals.
    If LCW had the same fortune of that pattern,LCW would also have no problem winning big titles.The fact that LCW is able to reach WN1, on his own steam, on account of reaching SF,finals and winning titles consistently,speaks highly of his calibre.
    This is not to question LD's achievements but do you want the pattern of how LD bag his big titles listed here to open your eyes and widen your mind? Better still, why don't you research it and list out here?
    There's a high chance I could be wrong and it'll be great for you to correct me.
