    Since Lin Dan has already stated that he will be skipping all tournaments until November of this year... that just goes to show everyone how Lin Dan does NOT care about his world ranking status any more ever since he won OG08.

    The ranking is based on points obtained from various tournaments. It is just like Nadal ranks second to Federer even though we all knew Nadal beat Federer in the many tournaments recently. If LD wants to get back to No1, he should play more....and win more. So it is really a fair deal. Do not hope to be no1 by just winning 1 big tournament like the Olympic and then take a long rest..and expect to be no1... people will just shoot past you in points....

    yes, but i checked the recent months, top 4-5 players just stays the same, with a big margin between 2nd and 3rd .. only now situation is a bit changed. it seems LD played all the year without pause up to the summer

    The crown of World No.1 is only on paper (it would change if another set of point system is used, like tennis), winning on courts are the only fact, . LD is still a class over LCW, the OG final shows this vivid and painful fact, we cannot change this fact.

    He knows he now would be desparately keen to prove he's the real No.1, at leave overturning the 3-9 losing record to LD (particularly in major competitions) and the lack of any single one major championship (we all know that the Super Series is in no way as honourable as OG or WC or even the Grand Slams in tennis).

    Of course LCW would be happier if he beat LD in the OG final. But I don't see any reason why he should not enjoy his No. 1 spot. He earned it fair and square, by winning tournaments one after another (note that the number of tournament LD and LCW participated are almost the same before OG), by defeating other players, including LD (not by a sudden change of rules of counting points, which is the case of his short No. 1 occupation -- 2 weeks? -- in 2006).

    It's interesting to see that after LD won OG, suddenly many people do not care much about the ranking anymore.

    For you Information, yesterday the Star newspaper in Malaysian reported that LCW says his goal in the near future is to do well in coming tournaments. Maintaining number 1 spot is not his top priority.

    Not exactly, when LD earned his number 1 spot, everybody knows that he is the best player in the circuit. And when LCW earned his number 1 spot recently, everybody knows that he still has LD to beat + some major title to relevant to his ranking.

    Good point.

    LCW is WR No.1, but without any major championship.

    I think it's already stated bf, 1) for LCW, WR#1 or WR#2 doesnt have much difference in terms the quarterly incentive from BAM. It's the same amount.
    Only from WR#3 onwards it's different.

    2) WR #1 & WR#2,etc,etc is for the purpose of the draw. So... it's relevant to LCW to see who gets drawn in his half of the draw, as you all know, will be different for WR#1 & WR#2.

    Other than that, it's more for the respective fans of the players, to see their fav player as WR#1.

    World No.1 = World Best Player? In Datuk LCW's case, i dont think so. Although he is ranked No.1 now, still he is not the world best player. Bcos we know, got 1 player who is better than him, that is LD.

    but its strange..
    LCW is really hard player to other ones, or anyway its what i saw so far. But when he plays with LD he get just a few points, and it's looking good when he passes over 10 points in a set. Just now i have seen the SO 2008 when suddenly LCW leaded 10:6 and even 17:16, but this was an only thing like this. All other matches just like OG.. with no chances..

    When TH was low ranking, TH was a dangerous player for high ranking player to meet in the early rounds....now if LD ranking drops, LD is a far more dangerous for higher ranked player to play in the early rounds...now who wants to meet LD early?

    The more accurate way in looking at any ranking tables, which is always a snap shot at a specific time frame, is to look at how long a player is holding on to the No.1 ranking.

    The longer the player can hold on to his/her top pole position uninterrupted, the more dominent he/she is in that particular discipline.
