Msia may not be as successful as China on the world stage but Lee Chong Wei & Koo Kien Keat and partner
have garnered enough interest locally to generate an industry, not in the class of China's super league but in the form of :
1) Media coverage- I believe Msia's TV coverage is unparalled, every semi Final or Final is shown on Astro almost every week.
2) Badminton centres sprouting everywhere from converted squash courts,warehouses, shopping centres etc etc catering to night crowds
enjoying a game after a day's hard work, despite the astronomical court fees.
3) Coaching centres everywhere from Han Jian, Yap twins, Ong Ewe Hock, KLBC, Lee Chong Wei's coach Mr. Teh,Desa Petaling,Eddy Choong,
and of course Nusa Mashuri heavily represented also in the BAM coaching set-up.
I think the sport in Msia is more popular than ever and growing and generating an industry, rivalled only by China.

Beside China, I think Korea, Malaysia, Denmark and Indonesia are pretty even. But looking ahead I think Malaysia and Indonesia could be in dangerous. Taiwan, Thailand and Japan is certainly picking up following with India and England.
China and Korea seems to have the best system in producing world class player in every generation. Malaysia and Indonesia are more talent based. While Denmark is like a mix of both.
Who will be there for Indonesia and Malaysia after the current batch???? I can barely think of a single name....

It is ridiculous not to include Dan in the best of badminton's nation. Specially considering the size of the population!

Hmm, China and Korea have been consistently producing strong youngsters and has new breed. So, they should be No.1 and 2 respectively. Indonesia has more depth in all departments, while Malaysia... well, they don't really have women who are ready to threaten the world. Malaysia's shining light actually only comes in one department - MD. Denmark has a few here and there, but new breed, I can only see Jan O' and Viktor in MS. So...
2) South Korea
4) Malaysia, Denmark AND JAPAN can fight it out.
Those who are ready to topple Malaysia + Denmark in a year or so...
Chinese Taipei, Japan, Thailand. India, not yet, unless we see more new players.
