Well, no one could possibily overtake LCW this year with his strong of titles won. Maybe next year.

Let us follow Lee Chong Wei to his next tournament
Well, let us follow Lee Chong Wei to his next tournament (next week); at the 2010 Macau Open Grand Prix Gold.
Both Simon Santoso and Kenichi Tago will waiting to face him again (in the top section of the draw). They both have abilities to prevent LCW from scoring more ranking points.
Here is the 2010 Macau Open Grand Prix Gold draw:

Even if LCW lose the rest of the tournaments in the 1st/2nd round for the next part of the year, I don't think he will lose his World No.1 spot. Unless CJ or PG wins about 4 super series and a few GP later.
So, it will not be easy to see him drop, but of course, as chris-ccc said, there are players who can reduce/stop him from getting more ranking points.

Lee Chong Wei won the MS title of the 2010 Macau Open
So Lee Chong Wei won the MS title of the 2010 Macau Open last week (from 27-Jul to 01-Aug).
LCW's toughest match was when facing Simon Santoso (INA); 58 minutes at the Semi-Finals.
LCW defeated SS; 21-12, 18-21, 21-12.
Keep up with the good work; And keep the World No.1 position until the 2012 Olympic Games.

If LCW can maintain his no.1 position till London 2012, would he become the longest no.1 ranked player in badminton history so far since his current reign started right after Beijing 2008? So far its almost 2 years and what was the longest record held on this for MS?

As for LCW being the longest serving MS WR#1 in badminton history or who held the longest record of WR#1 MS, if i'm not mistaken, LinDan was WR#1 from end of February 2004 until the summer (mid-June) of 2006. Yes, that's 2 yrs and 3+ months long..or perhaps there was another MS player who held it longer than LinDan??..
LCW so far has held it for nearly 2 yrs (end of 2008 OG, end of August, until now)...he should break that record (as far as i know) barring any unforeseeable injury..

Not sure if anyone held it longer than Lin Dan, I started following badminton only in 2007, and only fully started following after the Beijing Olympics - But I think that LCW will hold it longer if he does not get injured, even if he falls in the 1st and 2nd rounds of the rest of the following tournaments, except for the WC...

It's very simple why LD was no. 1 all those while and why LCW is no. 1 currently and yes, we've discussed abt that before: either players played in more tourneys and either players won or finished in latter rounds in more tourneys.

I couldn't find the answer in BWF that's why I refer to you.
08-08-2010, 01:25 PM #544
..please re-read my post #542 carefully..
For the current MS ranking, sure PG played in 1 more tourney, but who won more tourneys between LCW & PG??..If say PG played in 4 more tourneys and he either won the tourney or finished in latter rounds more, i'm sure you'll see the stats even closer or even PG being WR #1..
