Much respect has to be given to the CHN team
Yes, much respect has to be given to the CHN team. We don't know what LYB is planning. They are what some termed them as "Sleeping Giants", because they are strong and powerful, but somehow taking it easy. Although participating in lesser tournaments recently, they are always serious at their training sessions and they are ready (on call) for action anytime.
Some BCers mentioned that because of their lack of tournament participation, that they could regress. But I don't think so. This is because there are many higher standard professional players inside China. With their higher standard of players and programs, CHN could, without problems, grab the top ranking positions within a few tournaments.
But this should not discourage the other nations. Other nations have their own programs as well.
However, it still comes back to the 4 stronger nations, namely, DEN, INA, MAS and KOR to prepare to do battle with CHN.
You'll never know. Suddenly another talented PG, TH and LCW could arrive at the scene, within a year or two.

If it did, anything related to Chong Wei's rank would be within the ambit of this thread's title. For instance: the people who devised the ranking system.
This thread poses a direct question:
Will Chong Wei retain his current rank until London 2012?
If you must dissect the (BWF Ranking) System, please do so elsewhere

Chen Long is hardly a great player. Nothing in his (current) game shows great promise. His smashes, blocks, footwork, retrieving and net-play are only a few shades above ordinary - and his drops, especially from the backhand corner, are terrible.
I would imagine that China has another set of players waiting in the wings. With the Olympics well over three years away, it makes no sense to be prematurely pushing them into the competitive arena. As we speak, the CBA sports factory is probably at work moulding, equipping and polishing these players for the rigours ahead.
Of course, if Lin Dan can sustain his Beijing game until London, he will lead the China brigade. If not, China will ruthlessly push him aside. By then, they will have plenty of alternatives and will also have too much at stake to rely on anyone but the best. After all, despite the MS, WS and WD golds, the Beijing result was not the one China wanted.
It follows that, in this drive to London, world rankings are at best a desirable statistic. It beats me how China's prospects in 2012 (or, for that matter, in any prestigious event) would be either brightened or clouded by having or not having a World No.1 in its ranks.
His rank didn't help Lee Chong Wei at Beijing.
It's unlikely to help him at London either

Discussion on the calculation of WR points for sure will happen as our chris@ccc also posed the question on who can challenge LCW's WR#1 ranking. Perhaps should ask again the thread starter as to what else he wants to discuss pertaining to this.

If you've read my earlier post, you'll know I was also wondering why he wanted to discuss this since to me it wouldnt matter much - as long as WR#1 or WR#2 is fine for LCW.

1. Other improving players. Aren't there other shuttlers competing with LCW?
2. Possible injury/injuries or other unforeseen factors? If Dato LCW keeps playing til the 2012 OG, will he go injury-free?

Hopefully, there will be no more flip flopping between LCW & how the ranking system works.

Chen Long making his way closer and closer to Lee Chong Wei
The match between Chen Long and Bao Chunlai for the Mens Singles title at the 2009 Badminton Asia Championships) has been completed.
Quite a close result:
Bao Chunlai  [CHN] defeated [CHN] Chen Long 16-21, 21-10, 21-16 in 55 mins.
Although Chen Long did not win, he continues to gain more ranking points to improve his World Ranking position. From earlier posts, some have said that CL could be the one to topple LCW's World No.1 position. We are now seeing CL making his way closer and closer to LCW.
CL might be able defeat BCL by the end of this year, but IMHO, he is still way below the standards of LCW and LD. Don't think CL could be World No.1 when the 2012 Olympic Games arrives.
But let's wish CL all the best as he is improving in his rankings slowly, but surely.

If Chen Long (at No.100) is getting closer to Chong Wei, surely Przemyslaw Wacha (at No.10) must be rubbing noses with Chong Wei
Heard of Dionysius Hayom Rumbaka, Dmytro Zavadsky or Sven Eric Kastens?
Going by this logic, these players are closer to Chong Wei than Chen Long.
In ranking terms, Chen Long is as close to Lee Chong Wei as the Eiffel Tower is to the Great Wall of China. Even the retired Chen Hong and Chen Yu are way ahead of Chen Long!

Hey relax guys....
The world rank is not the topic here....
The topic is will chong wei remain No 1 till OG 2012...
That's a long way to go....
Anything could happen....
Injuries, food poisoning hehehe and many more.....
By that time also LCW is about 30++ years old.....
So, do the math yourself....

"4th,so does it relate to bwf world ranking system?
5th.can we discuss bwf world ranking system in this thread?
I think what limsy meant with no 4 & 5 was the BWF ranking points system & its relation to computation of WR points which results to LCW's (and his "challengers") current & future rankings. (Other players WR is also something that the thread starter wants to consider)
In order to speculate whether LCW can maintain his WR#1 status until 2012, as you know, we do have to calculate the WR points . If the BWF WR system is not related, then how to calculate who will be WR#1, WR#10,WR#100? So, for sure we have to mention the BWF ranking points & thereabouts. It's not about dissecting the system, Sir.
Cos the thread starter was explaining a bit on how the system works as some members were "blur" but unfortunately some other members got more confused.

Hope that the intention of this thread is clearer now
Thanks eaglehelang ,
Glad that you remind us what was intended to be discussed in this thread.
From the starting post of this thread:
(1) Can Lee Chong Wei remain as World No.1 until the 2012 Olympic Games?
Here, 'World No.1' is meant to be 'BWF No.1 ranked player'
(2) To monitor players who could come forward to challenge Lee Chong Wei
Here, 'players who could come forward to challenge Lee Chong Wei' is meant to be 'players' BWF rankings which can overtake the No.1 ranking of Lee Chong Wei'
This is the reason why I posted Post #129:
