TH have already won over Chong WEI in Macau Open
TH rank 10
Chong Wei rank 1
EHm so rank 10 is better than rank 1

Players ranking World #1 do not have to win every tournament they enter
romizone ... We hope that we are not going to debate over this matter.
So many members at Badminton Central do not know how the 'World Ranking' works. Perhaps a thread could be started for this.
It is important to stick to facts, namely:
(1) TH has won the Badminton Mens Singles at the 2008 Macau GP Gold
(2) Lee Chong Wei is currently ranked Badminton Mens Singles #1 at the latest World Ranking.
For Fact (1), it is based on the player's performance in that ONE tournament alone.
For Fact (2), it is based on the player's points earned from a series of tournaments played.
Facts are facts. And from these 2 facts, we cannot argue/debate who is the better player overall.
Many of us at Badminton Central try to use ONLY ONE of the above 2 FACTS to support their argument(s). And this is all wrong. We need to bring in the 2 facts together.

I agree with Chris@CCC
you need to bring 2 facts before you argue about it....
TH and LCW beat one and another for sometimes....
So, both are good players
TH only can reach final and win 1 tourney
LCW reach final and lost for many times since OG
In my mind; at Macau; TH was better in the side of mentality, LCW not at that time...
TH played w/o pressure as he going to retired soon (I dun no when) hehee... LCW had big pressure from MAS fans to win a tourney...
For skill; both are good, but LCW never win OG, TH did. Both player ever won WC...

Of course he's busy with his endorsement deals but it's strange not to be able to make it for DO08 and FO08.
Well, LYB knows fans expect LD to perform like in OG but I believe some conditions necessary for LD's 6th gear may not be present in DO08 and FO08.Hence, his return tournament has to be in CHN for reasons best known to LYB.

Way to go!!! Instead of comment on LCW like you usually do... recently on his weak mental strength when he had not been able to win anything with the so-called world ranking #1, you come out here and bash Lin Dan and LYB. even when they are being quiet at the moment.
Lin Dan doesn't need to prove anything any more(he reached his goal of winning OG + making lots of $$$), what else is there really worth his time and effort(Don't tell me some super series title or a $15,000 US cheque)... it is now time for the CHN juniors to step up. LYB is much smarter than any head coach of any country in which he is already building his jr. players 4 years before the next OG.
If a major badminton event is to come up tomorrow, and LYB wants Lin Dan to play, then you can bet your bottom dollar that Lin Dan will be there tomorrow, but since there is nothing important going on anyways, why would LYB make Lin Dan play when not necessary?
You would be better off praying for LCW not to lose to Simon or Taufik in the upcoming Denmark open instead of worrying about Lin Dan's 6th gear... as he could be using it somewhere else that you don't get to see...

The World Ranking depends on how many points a player has earned
The World Ranking depends on how many points a player has earned from the latest series of tournaments played.
The World Ranking only does that.
If a player who plays well but not participating lately, his/her ranking would fall.
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).
