The best and the rest
People seem to accept that the best 4 menís singles of recent years are Lin Dan, Lee Chong Wei, Taufik Hidayat and Peter Gade. But if you look at their achievements over the years more closely they are not as equal as some would assumed.
Here are some numbers;
Lin Dan (LCW+TH+PG) Olympics 1 1 World Champion 4 1 World Cup 2 0 Thomas Cup 4 2 Sudirman Cup 4 0 All England 4 3
or you can look at it this way;
Lee Chong Wei (LD+TH+PG) Malaysia Open 7 3
Taufik Hidayat (LD+LCW+PG) Indonesia Open 6 4
So, we can say that LCW, the best in Malaysia, and
TH, the best in Indonesia.
But, the best of them all.

Or you could say in the last 9 years Lin Dan has won more majors than the rest of the world combined. Gade/LCW haven't won a major.
Another analysis would be Lin Dan 5 majors, Taufik 2, Chen Jin 1,
