Yes. it comes from the Badminton World Federation. But seriously, in our slightest mind, is Lee Chong Wei really the best?
It isn't enjoyable to predict an official WR#1 to be defeated by WR#2 all the way.
The pride of being WR1 is gone. Neil.
When people are demand for major titles, in this case, Pemuda demand one major title from Lee Chong Wei, in order to acknowledge him as the TRUE WR1, i am in.
We need to tell Lee Chong Wei, that he could do it any better than what he had done now. No limitation to keep on trying.
Sorry, chris. one OT post from me.
My answer to the thread question is Yes. the most significant reason is, if he keep improving. If he does, he could win major titles, as a complement of his WR1 title

If we don't accept the Ranking System by BWF, then which system should we use?

World No.1 = World BEST player?
You are sending us a riddle to solve again.
Of course, the World No.1 doesn't have to be the World Best player.
Just consider this: A player who participates in all tournaments (say 52 tournaments in a year). He/she, even though finishing as runners-up in all the 52 tournaments, can be World No.1. It's how the system works. Just add up the points gained at all his/her tournaments.

In any case, many of the points already covered for now in these pages. If LD (& Team CHina) continues selective participation, then we may only see changes in 2010. And also we need to wait until after TC & WC 2010 to see who retires (PG did indicate he might retire by then) & who are the young guns that are rising up the rankings.

In this thread, we are discussing whether LCW will still be WR1 come the OG 2012
We are discussing whether LCW can maintain his WR1 come OG 2012 here in this thread (please refer to the title of this thread). We are not discussing BWF ranking system here in this thread.
For those having trouble understanding the title of this thread, maybe it is time to invest in a pocket size dictionary.

It is expected that CHN will come FULL FORCE as the 2012 Olympic Games approaches
It is expected that CHN will come FULL FORCE as the 2012 Olympic Games approaches. It is when they will try to field in 3 entries per event.
The rest of the world will have to wait and see. If CHN players can qualify to have 3 entries per event, why not?
I am never against rules as set. Because the rules set apply to everyone.

Perhaps my explanation on how the BWF Ranking System works is not clear
Here, we do not need a pocket size dictionary. We only need to understand how our BWF Ranking System works.
Perhaps my explanation on how the BWF Ranking System works is not clear/complete.
Could some BCers bring in some new items that I have missed explaining?
Also could our moderators change the title of this thread to "Will Lee Chong Wei remain as BWF World No.1 until 2012 OG?". This will prevent debates if we have our own concepts of who should be World No.1.

Thread is now about BWF ranking system & players' world rankings
Despite what was said below, the thread now is about BWF ranking system

In the first place this thread is not about how the BWF ranking system works
A standard 2 student will be able to tell and understand from the title of this thread that this thread is not about BWF ranking system or how the system works.
Anyway, please re-read this posting http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/sho...&postcount=116 this is where the BWF ranking system 'suddenly' popped up.
And this is where it gets interesting; http://www.badmintonforum.com/vb/sho...&postcount=117
Even if the mods changed the title, this thread is still specifically about whether LCW can maintain his WR1 by 2012.
I am truly amazed!

Chen Jin with his chronic back injury doesnt look like the one to "challenge" the spot, either by design or strategy of Team China.
As others have mentioned LD still can take over the WR#1 by participating more & winning titles & LCW doesnt do well in 2010 , why means LCW losing the spot sometime after August 2010? Since LD didnt participate in quite a number of SS this year, in 2010 there's no reduction of his points as he's starting on a new slate. Is that right?
Another scenario would be the frenzy of participation starts after the start OG qualification, and if LD wins loads of titles from mid 2011 (barring any serious injuries, that kinda stuff). Then,LD would be back as WR#1 latest by end of 2011 ???
So, in most ppl's minds should still be LD, CJ or CHina young gun will be 2nd in the running.
Indonesia's Simon Santoso is still young but also has his injury problems, he may move up WR#3 or 4 but I dont forsee Simon able to gather the points needed to be WR#1.

This thread is to question if LCW can remain as the BWF World No.1 until the 2012 OG
This thread is to question if LCW can remain as the BWF World No.1 until the 2012 OG.
If not, then we are interested in who is going to topple him.
This thread is not about how BWF Ranking System works.
It's assumed that most BCers understand how it works. If not, perhaps this link could be enlightening: click here
