    Arrow Will Lee Chong Wei remain World No.1 until the 2012 OG?

    .
    Lee Chong Wei to remain as World No.1 until the 2012 Olympic Games

    Greetings,

    From we what have witnessed recently, China is no longer interested to have Lin Dan to regain his World No.1 position.

    As disappointed as most of us BCers are (wanting to watch matches between Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan), we might only get to watch them play each other in fewer occasions from now on.

    IMHO, Lee Chong Wei could remain as World No.1 until he retires after the 2012 Olympic Games.

    This thread is created to monitor players who could come forward to challenge Lee Chong Wei.

    Cheers... chris-ccc

    Question Why would Chen Long be selected to topple LCW No.1 position?

    This is strange. If China doesn't send Lin Dan, their best MS player, why would Chen Long be selected to topple LCW's World No.1 position?

    ..India GP is not a proof??..Sooner or later, Chen Long will be sent to more tourneys. LD is probably going to get less exposure in the next 3+ yrs (which is quite a long time), so in effect, CL and the other younger players will be sent out. Strange??..

    Arrow Chen Jin is most likely to overtake LCW quicker than Chen Long

    Looking at the BWF World Ranking table/list, it would take Chen Long a long, long time to overtake LCW.

    If we are to consider a CHN player to overtake LCW, perhaps Chen Jin is most likely to do it quicker.

    well,ld can takeover lcw in the end of 2009 BUT he need to win everything(wc,ss and gp gold)start from the sudirman cup until the end of 2009
    which is unlikely as he wont participate as much as lcw will

    There are other players waiting (e.g. PSH) in the wing and 3+ yrs is quite a ways to go until the OG. How sure are we that LCW will stay at the top spot/WR #1 all the way til OG 2012??..

    Arrow Who do we think can overtake LCW from his WR #1 position?

    .
    That's precisely the main point. Currently, we see no player, other than our great Lin Dan, to challenge Lee Chong Wei's World #1 position.

    This is why this thread is created: Who do we think can overtake LCW from his WR #1 position?

    Default ^^Will it be clear coasting for LCW til OG 2012??..^^

    ..my personal answer is most likely not. Why? I've mentioned it in my post #9 :
    There are other players waiting (e.g. PSH) in the wing and 3+ yrs is quite a ways to go until the 2012 OG.
    Unless LCW can duplicate what LD did from late 2004 til 2008, one is surely putting a whole lot of guarantee on LCW to retain his WR #1 position til 2012. Remember also, LD had a lot of teammates joining him in the fray during that time period.

    It is indeed possible unless LCW win WC and then decide to attend only a few tournaments each year (like LD).

    Other players (like PG, TH, PSH, CJ, BCL, Sony) can topple LCW now and then, but it is unlikely that they can reach No.1 themselves. Especially when we take a closer look at the situation:

    TH, PG: Too old;
    CJ: Has chronicle waist problem since 2007.
    BCL: Has severe knee problem.
    Sony: Seems also in some serious injury.

    PSH: PSH has the ability to beat anyone, but it's just hard to imagine him reaching World No. 1.

    Lee Chong Wei is a good player...however, i think that 2009-2010 will probably be his last years as a competitive player to be able to play consistently on the circuit and still remain in the #1 position rankings...if you look at previous badminton players, they all peaked from ages 21-25...after that..their explosive plays start to diminish...for instance, after 2005, Taufik's winning percetange dropped dramatically...Simarily, Peter Gade lost his #1 ranking after a while...players are unable to keep up their stamina to play on a regular basis. Moreover, older players are more injury proned; besides, better players (like Chen Long like some people mentioned will improve and take over)

    I think that's why Lin Dan's picking and choosing his tournaments now...he's only playing in the more important ones..like World Championships and All England...in fact...i think that's a smart move, because he'll avoid the risk of injuries by playing in less tournaments.

    one more thing is...i also believe that the 2009 or 2010 World Championships are in fact the last chances Lee Chong Wei has to win the title

    1st,i dont think lcw will become LESS competitive after 2010
    2nd,lcw need to play more tournament because there is no bcl and cj or cl in malaysia,so,he need to play more torunament(mean he can get more competitive and keep his form)
    3rd,can lcw stop ld as the 1st in history to win 3 consecutive wc?unlikely
