smallest pro men's singles player?
who do you think is the smallest (in terms of height) pro badminton mens singles player? who is the smallest world/ olympic champion or former world no. 1 men's singles player? maybe there are old school players who doesn't have much height yet have very well excelled in mens singles..

I think Tien Minh Nguyen should be one of the smallest at 5'2" - 5'7" depending on which website we look at. I saw him in person before. I think he is in between like 5'4" or 5'5".

Top ranked MS, I think it would LCW. He's not a very big guy, but his game play is huge.

Not many tall players are really successful.
LD is only like 178cm

Howard Bach doesn't play singles on the circuit unless I missed something
Sun Jun is taller than that - probably about 174cm.

When I saw the thread title, my mind tells me the smallest MS player is NTM

12. Which player you admire at the start, both at the local and the international scene?
I think it would be Sun Jun. When I started picking up this sport, he was then the world champion. I really admire the way he play his game as he has quick reflexes and lightning speed on court though he is just small in size.
(Refer on badminton-information on LCW interview)
Ouh yeah!I really need to discover more old player ...

Sun Jun, Arif, Alamsyah, NTM, LCW, LD.etc

Former MAS player Yap Kim Hock @ 5 feet 3 inches.
