1) Pls study the whole year's schedule. 2009 AE & Swiss, China & HK, Spore & INA, then Msia GP Gold, WC & MAcau.
Denmark is unique, since 2007, for some reason Msia doubles win in Denmark but not France
2) You should know by now KKK/TBH do better in Europe tourneys than Asia ones, Msia is not home ground advantage for them.
3) This yr, another factor different is WPT is KKK's XD partner. It's different than when KKK partner NHL, like what happen at SEA Games
Studying trend need to look at 4 to 5 factors

Badzine's online chat with KKK recently.....
[Comment From Kelly , USA]
Hi Kien Keat ! Congrats on your career. How important is it for you to be world's number one ? More important than winning Super Series titles ?
[Comment From KOO KIEN KEAT]
Hie Kelly... Thank You for your wish..No... Winning is more important than getting world no. 1..

Let's talk about Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong going for quality instead of quantity
Yes, that comment was to say that KKK/TBH got the World No.1 position when 2009 ended, and MAS fans should be satisfied.
They achieved it (in 2009) because they participated in more tournaments than the other Top 4;
Rank ... Country ... Players .......... Points ...... Tournaments
1 .......... MAS ....... KKK/TBH ...... 74779.26 .........14
2 .......... KOR ....... JJS/LYD ....... 69077.47 ......... 9
3 .......... INA ......... MK/HS ......... 68888.79 ......... 11
4 .......... DEN ....... MB/CM ......... 65393.42 ......... 11
This year, 2010, is going to be different for KKK/TBH. They will participate in fewer tournaments.
Let's look at this first tournament of 2010, the Korean Open. If JJS/LYD win it, therefore winning 9,200 points, they would be No.1, overtaking KKK/TBH immediately.
Hence, we are saying BAM is willing to have KKK/TBH not desperately wanting to be No.1.
Please refer again to the title of this thread:

quality is always important, players dont have to play a lot to prove a point, maybe ranking #1 in the world is good but it's just a title. it's the way how every player perform on the court that actually matters the most. winning is always a bonus, playing on the court is what really matter the most.

- Tan Sri title for Datuk Lee Chong Wei, therefore 'Tan Sri Datuk Lee Chong Wei
- Datuk title for Koo Kien Keat & Tan Boon Heong, plus PJK & AMN
for their great achievement being World's No. 1.
It is not a surprise MAS holding WR No.1 positions. We are badminton powerhouse. Our gov had invested lots of money in this sports.
I would said It Is A SURPRISE if Austalian player hold the No.1 position.

A player or pair can be ranked No.1 because of their ranking points gained

But, they can be WR 1 with some titles in hand, and still lost too many times to lower rank pairs.............This is a WR 1 without quality....sadly

Theoretically, without winning even a single title, KKK/TBH can be World No.1, if
Theoretically, without winning even a single title, KKK/TBH can be World No.1,
1. KKK/TBH plays in all tournaments that gives ranking points; including SS, GP Gold, GP, etc,...... and finished up as runners-up.
2. No one pair dominates in winning many titles. That is to say tournaments titles are won equally by many different pairs.
Join us at our BadmintonCentral PAW Games, and you will see how the No.1 ranked position can be achieved.

What is more important WR#1 or titles ... major titles??
Some are saying that Malaysian fans are still not satisfied despite having 2 WR1s in LCW and KKK/TBH.
Ok, lets put aside all emotions and sentiments, and examine the above statement.
What is it that define greatness when it comes to badminton? Being WR1 or having a collection of major titles? Please ... dont answer straight away ... take some time and think a little. Being WR1 (with no majors) or having a host of big trophies?
Take a look at this bunch ... Yang Yang, The Thing, Liem Swie King, Rudy Hartono, Morten Frost, Park Joo Bong ... they are all legends in the game, right? Do they have major trophies?
Maybe when it comes to Malaysian shuttlers ... we should have a different set of expectations? Ok fair deal then ... lets look at Malaysia specifically.
Lets start with the coaches ... we hired the best out there both past and present. Yes?
Our facilities are 2nd to none. Yes?
When it comes to rewards, we are pretty much up there.
As such, despite all these investments all we have to show is 2 WR1s and a Sea Games Women gold, no Olympic gold, zero WCs, very very few AEs and it has been ages since we won the TC.
Personally, I dont know .... I guess it comes down to personal standards.
