2) WR#1 status for LCW does have rewards for him, RM45,000 every 3 months, will be less starting from next year.
I think this is the part where chris@ccc has to point out (yet again) why he started the thread

There should be no argument with smashwide
smashwide should read Post #1 before we have an argument.
We are talking about who could come forward to challenge Lee Chong Wei for the World No.1 position. There should be no argument with smashwide, since Lin Dan doesn't want that No.1 position.
World No.1 is just a title.
It is a title for any player interested to win and to keep it. And a player needs to work hard to keep/hold the title.
IMHO, currently, there should be no argument that Lee Chong Wei shouldn't be World No.1.

Nguyen Tien Minh has been moved to World No.6
BTW, just yesterday, Thursday 15-Jul-2010, BWF has moved Nguyen Tien Minh up to World No.6.
I shall try to get in touch with NTM while he is here in Melbourne for our 2010 Australian Open GP.

What does that got to do with LCW's thread to remain as WR1 untill the 2012 OG?
LOL, just wondering

Maybe he is implying that NTM might be one to catch up with LCW. But I say no, NTM is the same age and more likely than not, if someone wants to steal his crown, it would be Lin Dan, or some other young and uprising star, or maybe he would actually maintain it until it's London time.

For LCW to beat LD more often, he has to have more opportunities to do so. But LD is not doing that and perhaps avoiding LCW by playing even less this year. So far they have met only once and it's half the year gone. The rest of the year they may have the chance to meet 3 times and all in LD's homeland (AG, CM and CO.) LCW has never beaten LD in his homeground. This year LD has played in tournaments where he has won before (AE, SWO and TC) or where LCW is absent (ABC). If you can arrange for LD to play in IO, KO, MO and SPO, LCW's chances of beating LD will be higher.
It is good you worship LD. And you are not alone there.
But the fact that LD is no longer WR1 does not mean he does not want it. It means he is not able to or he has to make a choice.
Let me explain:
1. LD is ageing (so is LCW). It's difficult for LD (as seen this year) to sustain his high level play for two consecutive weeks. When LD was WR1, he was amazing: he could win 3 titles in 3 consecutive weeks (with some help from teammates, courtesy of LYB)! To be WR1 for at least 3 months?, a MS has to play 12+? tournaments. If LD plays more, he's likely to lose more and once LD loses more often than expected, his 'greatness' aura would be tarnished and tha's not good for his image.
2. LD has a choice. If he aims for WR1, he has to play more and this means LCW's opportunities to beat him increase. This is dangerous for LD because once LCW's record against a MS improves,LCW is unlikely to lose (BCL, CJ, PG, TH). LYB is aware of that. Between forgoing WR1 status and losing to LCW more often, giving up WR1 pursuit is the less painful choice.
3. LCW is the only consistent non-CHN MS threat to LD, having beaten him at least 3 times and still improving. LD is actually a better and more complete MS now than when he was WR1 but he's also more vulnerable when he' s not fully prepared. Other non-CHN MS will have a odd chance of beating him now than before since LD is unlikely to prepare for them as his preparations will have to be solely for LCW.

I say these 3 young players will most likely not challenge before OG 2012 :
1) Chen Long
2) Tago Kenichi
3) Jan O' Jorgensen
I am not impressed by them so far.
