Chris' thread title is one thing i hoped to be real.
He didn't start his peak early, he supposed to end it later, then. It'll be fair. (^_@)
He's lack of good sparring partners and should take part regularly in tournaments. i agree, limsy. This should sustain his Wr1 as the China Dragons are somehow selective, aren't they? What i hoped for is his participations could also helped him to be stronger in top tournament i.e WC and not getting him weaker due to tiredness and all. This is up to him and his coach to decide on.

To be WR No.1, DLCW should take part regularly in tournaments. This will ensure that he earn enough points to be at the top of WR, just as what as he does previously.
What is the meaning of World Ranked No. 1 player for DLCW if he is still not yet win any major championships? I am sure Datuk's desire to win the major championships is much more stronger than maintaining his No.1 ranking.

It appears that no player can overtake Lee Chong Wei's No.1 ranking
Yes, since the China Dragons have currently abandoned their desire to regain the World No.1 position, it appears that no player can overtake Lee Chong Wei's ranking.
Currently, Lee Chong Wei continues to gain more and more ranking points. He is leaving everybody so far behind.
This thread hopes to keep a close watch over any player(s) who could come forward to challenge him.

People who have said lcw takes part in tournaments as part of his training due to lack of good sparring partners may have a point. But others who have said that taking part in so many minor tournaments harms his chances in the big tournaments (WC and Olympics) also present a valid argument. I think if LCW really wants to win the big tournaments then he might need to find a balance and sacrafice some ranking points. But shame i dont see him doing it.

Will Chen Long be given the opportunity to make it to World No.1?
It could be assumed that Chen Long would arise to be a better player than LCW and LD sooner or later. The question is whether he would be given the opportunity to make it to World No.1.
There have been many threads where we have discussed and debated on who is the best player in the world. This is not one of them.

Is there an article showing how LD will only pick certain tournaments to play in, or is this just speculation??

The World No.1 is not only a great player, but also one who works hard at it
Perhaps Badminton needs a private sponsor giving $$$ to the player who carries the World No.1 tag. But then again, China doesn't seem to be interested in prize monies.
In my book, the World No.1 is not only a great player, but also one who works hard to gain BWF ranking points. Currently, LCW holds these qualities.
IMHO, if LCW were to miss more tournaments, his performance would suffer. His opportunity to improve comes from participating in more tournaments.
Because LCW wishes to win the next Olympic Gold medal, we could see him playing as often as he could, unless injuries prevent him from doing so.

Here are some past ranking datas of WR #1..
..reality is, it is a tough feat to maintain one's WR #1 for 4 yrs, let alone to dominate the entire field for the same period of time...Looking at the list of ranking datas below, LD has been the only MS player to maintain that stature (from 2004 til 2008).
As long as Chen Long is given the opportunities to compete, which imo they should strongly go for, his ranking will move up quite a bit. How long or fast he'll move up, imo, it depends how many tournaments he's being sent to.
Who knows, if Chen Long is not "the next one", maybe someone else will come out of nowhere to surprise us.
MS World Ranking, after the 2004 OG (taken abt the same time as now). Look at Chen Jin's ranking at that time and compare it to now.
MS World Ranking after the 2000 OG (taken abt the same time as now). As a matter of fact, LinDan and LCW weren't even ranked in the top 100. Make that, both of them weren't even in competition when this ranking was recorded. Check out Bao Chun Lai's ranking (#347 overall) and compare it to Chen Long's current ranking (if not mistaken, it's in the #100-125).
But look at what 3+ yrs did for them...
MS World Ranking after the 1996 OG (taken abt the same time as now). Look at Peter Gade's ranking.

Kay cool, cause I still think LD is motivated to play tournaments where it counts, and for a good audience (like at home in China).
