How do you rate your own badminton skills if Lin Dan gets 100 points?
I think I can get 35 points,what about you?

About 10 points max... I don't think any amateur could be more than 30!
35 points means that you can take 7-8 points in every game

5 maximum. Ling Ling, you must be really good!

I'd say this is quite an ambitious project...because the difference are just so ungodly big....
We'll start from the top, Lin Dan (or lee cong wei, or Taufik who cares?) are the absolute best on he circuit. He played Joachim person on this years AE09, playing a good match. Beating Persson 21-13 21-6. So you can quite clearly see Joachim is just not up to his level.
But then, looking at Joachim's records, he's actually a very good player, beating a lot of his danish compatriots, like Peter Mikkelsen or Emil Vind.
Then, looking at those Danish men, they actually reach quite far on the international challenger circuits...
Havign competed in my first international challenger last week, and getting kicked out in the first round against a German fellow (21-14 21-18, I though I did quite well). And then on the bottom of this ladder we have me, beating some Dutch players on he A level...
Are you starting to see the picture being painted here? the absolute impossibility to compare yourself to the best of today (possibly ever)?

OK, so we have an upper bound of 100. How far below 0 can we go?

There is a big difference between professional and advance players, LinDan though, is God player lol
bigger than 0, less then 1 hehe

well, it can't be below 0, that would technically mean that LD would beat you 25-0 or something.
so it has to be a positive number.
i reckon mine would be 100/21, because i think he may serve into the net or something and gift me a point, once a rally gets going, there's no way i'd win the point.

Edit my post: 3 points max
04-20-2009, 01:00 PM #13
I think I'm in the range of 3-5 .
Probably because I may be able to use my trick shots to get a few points from LD , and his error .

So far I've only had two international results... One is a junior tournament (good enough to land me number 66 at the european junior circuit last year)
the other was just last week so maybe it'll update this week or so
Even my national ranking is rubbish, I'm number 97 or so, quite a bit lower than most of the people I play with (have some old results from a lower division dragging my average down)

I reckon LD would beat me
The score would be probaly
LD 21 LD rules! 4
LD 21 LD rules! 3
I doubt il ever get the chance to play him though

Well LD made JP look like a 10 at the AE, he wasn't even trying. JP is actually one of the top 10, and most here are nowhere near the top 500. So if JP can make a rank 100 person look like a 10/100, then on court, we would be like a 0/0000001/100 vs LD..
