It is not easy to be world ranked No. 1.
But if CEH/WPT & KKK/TBH can be World's No.1, then what is difficulties of being so?
DLCW is World Ranked No. 1, but with no major championships title in hand.
Tell me what sports in the world that the sportsmens hold WR No.1, but without winning any major championships before....

IMHO, Lee Chong Wei could remain as World No.1 until he retires after the 2012 OG
As it was quoted in opening post of this thread, namely;
We haven't seen anyone serious enough to come forward to topple LCW.

I concur with you LD would want his WR1 back. But to be WR1, LD needs to travel/participate in a lot of tournaments, win to get the most points, and I surmise for LD at his age and having won a huge share of SS, that is a lot of work for too low a payout and also risks injury, exposure and wearing him out as his remaining goals are OLY12, AG10/12 and more AE/WC.
Since CJ is WR2 and tournament rules forbid CHN top 2 players to be in the same half, what incentive is there for LD to pursue WR1 as long as he keeping beating the WR1 and everyone else?

Thanks young Eagle for correction...then LCW does not have to face LD in the same half. Improve ranking for LD and good for LCW at the same time.
Also, I forgot to point out that MAS players get to keep 100% of winnings, endorsement, etc., therefore MAS players should be motivated to go for WR1 despite the huge pressure. CHN players get to keep half of that.

I think this new strategy, which has been tested and approved by LD, is a good choice for DLCW.
Pehars that changing his preparation tactic will get him more confident for the majors, but he really has to have good results on the selected tournaments !
Moreover, i don't think that the fact to be no1 or not is important for him, the aim is just to be seeded for the majors.

So if Datuk is passionate about winning at least one majors and not merely to boost his income, I applaud him and rightfully so, for MAS and tax payers who fund this sport to produce a majors winner, not SS winners which are easily forgotten.
On the other hand, if Datuk wants to maximize his wealth before he kisses the game goodbye, then he may wants to play as many SS as he can while he can still win, especially if the other guy is not playing.

And I agree with OneToughBirdie, what works for LD might not work for LCW, is LCW the type of player that needs constant competition from top players to maintain his form or he can just train and maintain his form. We know China's got alot of world class players LD can practice with, I doubt that Malaysia's got as many...
