    Default 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.

    Howard Bach doesn't play singles on the circuit unless I missed something

    Sun Jun is taller than that - probably about 174cm.

    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 ...
