    Default who else want to see Chen Long win the HK open?

    I have a hunch that Chen Long will dominate badminton for 5 years after LD retires. Right now, Chen Long is probably not as good as LD (although Chen Long beat LD in 2009), but Chen Long is one of the few who can put up a real fight with LD.

    LD now is head and shoulder above the rest player. LCW is probably the second, but Chen Jin and Chen Long are close.

    After those 4, there are Gade, TAUfic, Bao Chun Lai, a Japanese young player(who lost to LCW in the final of AE 2010), and bunch of young Chinese players.

    Not really. Sorry, but I think that watching Chen Long play is very boring. No doubt that he's good and all, but that doesn't mean that it's entertaining.

    agree on the style of Chen Long. Lin Dan on the outset back in early 2002/2003 already posses the dynamic style that he has today. style is like personality and don't change much. Chen Long's style is very straight forward and not very interesting to watch. kinda like CJ. but that doesn't mean it is not efficient, he might win more tournaments in the future as he matures but still, most people prefer to see players with more distinct character like LD, TH, and LCW.

    Exactly. LCW style is power and speed, TH is graceful, and LD is just super. Chen Jin was very boring to watch as well, but I think it's gotten more entertaining. Especially during the 2010 World Championships. In that tournament, his game play was very offensive, which makes it very entertaining to watch.

    Taufik seems to have the right muscles in the right places,especially in the arms , probably by training.

    China's players like Chen Jin and Chen Long are very conservative in their styles,it reminds me of the 80s when Russia

    produced a player called Andre Antropov who shocked other players by playing a game based on low percentage shots and virtually

    no mistakes, his emergence caused a lot of surprises in the world of Liem Swie King, Frost, etc. etc.

    Wang Zheng Ming with his big hitting style is still struggling, so is Tago. After LD and LCW men's singles may be highly tactical

    and not very exciting.

    LCW's make up currently seems to have the best make-up for today's badminton,playing tournaments day in,day out.

    CL has got long reach (legs and arms) and he has the right combination of ingredients of both ChenJin (endurance + stamina) and BCL (long reach + sharp shots)... but he lacks the variations and killing instincts... nevertheless, he will rule the MS after LCW and LD retired...

    He has overtaken his senior BCL and on par with CJ... indeed a rare and talented guy...

    I dont know if I should discuss this, but if I were a junior and still have my "O" levels etc to clear,

    I wouldn't want to end up a non-graduate by spending my time playing badminton around the world,

    then after my playing days become a local coach for 2-3 K a month for the rest of my life, then I'll be addicted to Roti Canai and nasi lemak.

    I think it may be relevant considering the high cost of living .As a rule, badminton success of a country goes up and down with the vibrance of the

    economy. To expect players to sacrifice themselves for their country at the expense of their futures I think is wishful thinking.

    China now is booming economically and can afford to take care of their players.

    Let's not continue on this as this thread is meant to discuss Chen Long.Maybe someone can start a similar topic on career prospects

    of badminton in msia, otherwise this thread will attract a lot of characters.

    Suffice to say, that if I am a young hopeful I will choose to excel at a certain level and then drop out after.

    In the boring or interesting aspect, I find the young Tian, 2009 WJC, more interesting. He can overtake Chen Long in a couple of years time & fight with Denmark's young Victor(2010 WJC) for titles, then we will have interesting matches to watch.
    Meanwhile....after 2012, there's Chen Jin + youngsters Chen Long, Wang ZM, Gong,Du PY, other countries -Simon, Tago, PSH...not interesting.
