Left-handed professional players
I'm writing an article about left-handed players in world badminton. There are many left-handers between men - Lin Dan, Bao Chunlai, Fu Haifeng, Wong Choong Han, Matthias Boe, Joachim Persson, Marc Zwiebler...
but I wasn't able to find any left-handed woman - it seems to me like all the best women are right-handed.
Could you please help me and name some other left-handed players, especially women?
And I would also appreciate tips on famous left-handers from older badminton history, if there are any...

Zhao Jian Hua is the most famous Left Hander IMO.
Women? Can't think of any off the top of my head......

but you're right, there aren't that many, i wonder why.

4. Kamilla Rhytter Juhl?
5. Sho Sasaki?
7. Zhu JingJing
Should becareful when looking from photos though, they can be flipped so a right hander looks like a Lefty on the photo.

so 4 is Kamilla Rytter Juhl and 7 is Jiang Yanjiao.

1. Bae Youn Joo (KOR)
2. Chau Hoi Wah (HKG)
3. Tan Chun Seang (MAL)

Don't forget Yang Yang (CHN), who was also dominant during Zhao Jianhua's time.
Also, don't forget to include Tan Boon Heong (MAS)!! (Some bolehers would be proud of his "world record smash" achievement.. (others would say it is not in a match condition) kekeke )
Good luck on the report.
There is actually a scientific study stating that left-handedness is rarer among women in general, compared with men... wikipedia is a good source for research on "left-handedness".

Dont forget the pretty girl call Dai Yun. Ask Camillia Martin how difficult it is to play her.

Follow the link below to watch Dai Yun play against Ye Zhaoying in the 1999 Grand Prix Finals. She is taller than Wang Xin and as skillful ,if not better. she is the one in white.
