    Does anyone have the official record of all these players' best / fastest smash during the World Championship in London? So far I only recall FHF fastest as 301km/h, is there any fastest smash than 301km/h during the Championship? Just curious to find out. Thanks.

    Imo fastest smash or best smash is a whole different thing, not saying FHF's smashes aren't well placed because I think they are well placed.

    .
    Actually, 'well-placed' is not as important as 'difficult to return'; be it that the smash is 'powerful and fast' and/or 'deceptive'.

    Sometimes a slower/deceptive smash can cause more trouble/problem than a harder/faster/more powerful smash
    .

    That's right a really slow one down the middle works very well because your opponents have more time to think

    I hope I got the spelling of names correct!
    Agreed, Kim Moon Soo is the smasher n Park Joo Bong is the strategic/tactical player, similar to Christian Hadinata/Ade Chandra, Indonesia Men's Doubles in the 80's.

    TBH is a tall player.
    He can smash an awesome speed with a jump.

    What is the fastest smash he has made?

    Can't you add a "me" category??? When you watch a smash on TV, you would be like :O with your eyes popping out thinking it is really fast, since I have the BWF World Championships 2011 and the All England 2011, whenever a player smashes it doesn't look that fast.Whoever has watched a tournament in the venue don't you agree with me?

    maybe TBH and FHF can smash harder than JJS at one first shot.
    JJS is so consistent with smashing down at stiff angle like a smashing machine.
    Regarding the shoulder problem, the speed of JJS smashes seems slower.

    Looking at only smash, Ko Sung Hyun and Morgensen should be on the candidates as well.

    I didn't get to watch many games of Ha Tae Kwon. He seems too big for MD.
    I bet he can smash down.

    Fu Haifeng for the power smash, but I do like those angled smash , and variations of JJS attacking play . The height he get is extraordinary , I actually seen him in training in an enclosed sport hall and the sound that came out of his racket was frightening. It sounded like a shot gun , which echo thru the entire hall.

    My vote goes for this guy 'cos apparently no one can return his smashes and he reckons people on BC know nothing about badminton which suggests he must be damn good

    I think I would agree with you. Though have not seen either of them in training. I think Jung is a clever smasher and a hard hitter. Even though he is a short guy but his smashes are well placed and off course hard. From many matches I've seen on video between Fu and Jung, Fu takes several smashes to win a rally, where as Jung usually take one or two smashes to finish it off.

    Exactly , is about the variation in speed and angle as well. The disguise on his smash , it is so difficult for opponent to guess where he is aiming. Also the speed and movement of him at the back is unbelievable

    When you are defending against JJS , you have to guess how loosely you should grip the racket and what grip to use, also positional sense is critical and do not make a move until he has actually contact the shuttle (stay in your defensive stance), as he has got great awareness. If he power smash he would always aim the first to left hip than second to right hip and it is impossible for players to change the grip when he is at mid-court smashing at 165mph+ at you , and defending with a backhand grip on forehand side would put you at greater risk and could mean the end of the rally especially when the incoming LYD is on full alert . Alot to think about.......................

    That what make him so great ....I am going to miss him when he retires as I think he is incredible.......

    When he retires after the Olympics, we will miss him. Surprised to see him 3rd on the poll, behind Tan. So Tan is a better smasher than Jung?! No wonder Tan and his pal are strugling now.

    During the last AE, Anthony Clark commented with Gillian Clark, that when Jung prepares for a smash, they're terrified when Jung played against them! I wonder if he would be terrified if Tan smashes?

    I would say Fu is the hardest hitter and Jung is the best smasher, if that makes sense.
