    As a fan of these 2 top players, LCW and LD, I just love to watch them playing against each other. It doesn't matter at which round I find them meeting each other.

    At any tournament whenever they meet, their match is usually considered as "The Most Hoped-For Match of the Tournament".

    Today, Chen Long has won his 1st SS title, at the 2010 China Open SS tournament.

    This should move CL into our ranking for the World Top Five.

    Thumbs up 2010 Hong Kong Open SS: Lee Chong Wei won

    .
    At yesterday's 2010 Hong Kong Open SS, Lee Chong Wei won the Mens Singles title.

    After the match, kwun said;

    I would agree. In 2010, LCW is the only player able to keep the World No.1 position throughout the year.

    In a way, I am very happy for LCW. Reason?: Let's go back to Post #1 of this thread.

    Thumbs up LCW will be remembered as a great player (from 2006 to 2010) in World Badminton

    .
    Some are still not happy for LCW. As one post mentioned;

    I don't think so. I think LCW will be remembered as a great player (from 2006 to 2010), because he has maintained his World No.1 position for such a long time.

    Lin Dan, the other great player, will be remembered as the best major titles winner (also 2006 to 2010).

    LCW will also be remembered by the badminton world for being a challenger to Lin Dan in his era I believe. Of course, he will probably be remembered as Mr. Runner-Up to Lin Dan. Besides that, he is extremely popular in Malaysia and I believe Malaysians of his era will always remember LCW.

    It's true to say that LCW is extremely popular in Malaysia and that Malaysians of his era will always remember him.

    But, I also believe that if we were to ask all Malaysian national players (who have represented Malaysia, past and present) who they would vote for as Malaysia's best representative in the history of Badminton in Malaysia; I wouldn't be surprised if LCW gets the vote.

    Past Malaysian players have done well (even winning major titles), but none of them had the ability to win so consistently (as LCW has done) over such a long period of time (in so many world tournaments).

    Sorry, I beg to disagree with your assessment.

    It is on record that WONG PENG SOON and Dato EDDY CHOONG won more major titles than LCW.
    During their era, the big tournaments were the Thomas Cup and the All England competitions.
    WPS won the AE MS titles in 1950, 1951, 1952 and 1955.
    Dato EC won in 1953, 1954, 1956 and 1957. He also won the AE MD title in 1951, 1952 and 1953.
    The TC wins were in 1949, 1952 and 1955.
    WPS also won the Malayan Open MS title 8 times, a feat LCW is trying to equal or surpass.
    Both these two players have been inducted into the Badminton Hall of Fame, Dato EC in 1997 and WPS in 1999.

    I am quietly confident that LCW would take over WPS's 8 times MO MS record before LCW retires.

    I just posted in another thread this message;

    LCW was defeated in only 1 SS match, out of the 7 SS tournaments he entered, in year 2010.

    This is an incredible record to be proud of.

    LCW has to win both the 2011 WC and 2012 OG MS tournaments to stamp his mark as Malaysia's best badminton player ever.
    No doubt he has earned more dollars/ringgits than Wong Peng Soon and Dato Eddy Choong from his wins and endorsements but that is not the true measure of greatness.
    LD for now is the greatest badminton player ever in terms of major tournament wins; he also comes out top in earnings.

    Don't get me wrong... I am a great admirer of Wong Peng Soon.

    Seriously, I sometimes imitate WPS. I would dress like him (wearing long white pants with a hand towel tugged-in at my waist to wipe my sweaty hand) and I would play Badminton concentrating in precision and controlled strokes.

    As for Dato Eddy Choong, he doesn't need the prize monies because he comes from a rich family. In fact, he is still now driving a more expensive car than LCW can presently afford.

    A tall order for LCW. Anyway, I believe he must have been satisfied with what he has. WC and OG is a bonus.

    As for China, I prefer Yang Yang coz he won MO, IO and SO. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yang_Yang_(badminton) A more humble person compared to LD. At those days, there were no airconds. You can imagine the heat... sauna..

    Now that LCW is thinking of going independent with Misbun Sidek, I think this thread's topic will become even more interesting.

    how long have LCW and LD maintained World No.1 respectively (in number of weeks / months)?

    did LCW keep a longer world No.1 than LD so did you speak?

    I hope LCW will reconsider his decision. If he left national team, his chance of remain in world no.1 will be very slim. Look at Taufik and we know why.
