Who Can Replace Super Saiyan 2 Lin Dan???
as the post date shows,.... it's now 2010 Aug.
It's been like since 2003/04? that Lin Dan has been imposing his ever dominance over World Badminton... Regardless Ranked World no. 1 or not.
They Called Chen Hong LYB prototype and Lin Dan his perfection. But since, has there really another that stood quite up to the mark?
Not quite. China Standard wise.
Lin Dan is the crem dela crem (spelt right?) of modern world badminton.
Amazing Talent (stay on topic... Badminton!)
Imaculate Sense of The Game
Varsatile to changes in the game and age
it's been over 6 years at least now. So LYB, as your Top Dog retires some time soon,

..who's next in CHN's junior MS players after LD?:
Wang Zhengming (check out his thread, "Zhengming Wang: the next super king", not too far from this thread also)..
..not quite the perfection as that of LD, but they probably will continue the legacy of CHN MS power..
..or ask limsy who's been watching & following these 2 players..

Is it me or does the new batch of CHN players always take at least 1 year hiatus from World Badminton after their junior year?
Chen Long disapeared for 1 year only to reemerge 'not bad' china wise. I thin he was injured but to be taken for a run by a little twerp like Arif is kinda sad.
Lu QiCheng was on and off the radar. Hardly any impact. To the person I spoke to last time. I told you so
Tian Houwei for as far as I'm concern seemed to have completely disapeared after World Junior. Even if he was around.... If a tree falls down deep in the forest of China... did it really happen?
Same stories for Qiu Yanbo Gong Weiji
Chen Jin seems to be the only exception in recent years of China Junior MS graduation to Open category.

Chen Jin was indeed an exception. He won the WJC at 16 y.o. (2002) and then at 18 y.o. (2004)..
OTOH, LD never won the WJC (lost to BCL) but he went on to dominate..
..there won't be another LD, BCL & CJ, but their junior MS squad is still as loaded as one can imagine..

Yes, true. They will still eat up the Boleh Army in comparison. Due to economies of scale.
Unless McD can help us throw a spanner in CHN works.
But I think CHN fans will still be abit dissapointed and unimpressed. Which makes it sad? Relatively

Isn't it sad that it seems a consensus to everybody thinking it's all downhill from here and no one's gonna eclipse Lin Dan for a long time?
It's like watching LOTR 1, 2 & 3 over the span of the trilogys' release... then when it's over find that we don't quite have anything to look forward to kinda feeling?
If this is Despairing us... I wonder how LYB is feeling?

..after 2012, i think everyone, not only CHN or Jia You fans will still be a bit disappointed and unimpressed..
M'sia and all the Boleh fans with LCW's retirement?
Indonesia and all their fans, well they've been disappointed waiting for the "next" Taufik?
Korea and their Dae Hanmingook fans? Choi Ho Jin to the rescue??..
DEN might have a savior in Viktor Axelsen..

what going to happen if LCW decided to retire because all the strain he put on himself/injuries from playing 30000 tournements a year !

Cannot see any potential candidates now..
Can be from either country, but the time is hard to predict.
Just like Taufik, cannot find in many years to come
08-03-2010, 10:58 PM #14
there will be one
if the law allows us to do .....

Tian Hou Wei is supposed next in line, but Wang ZM will be up 1st as the senior. They will have Denmark's Viktor to contend with.

..eaglehelang, we're discussing abt MS players...not the doubles..

INA may have a saviour in Hayom Rumbaka. He comes from the Djarum club (the most successful club in INA), the same club where Liem Swie King, Heryanto Arbi, etc were made famous.
