I do hope that ZZ will preserve on. In all honesty, this is just a start of a great journey. Both for ZZ and KLRC. Things may change, but the challenge is to evolve faster than the change.

Well said nokh88.
Fact: ZZ is now the best in the world over all players at his age and younger.
Requirement: For him to become the best in the world, there are 2 things ZZ needs to achieve, namely;
No.1: To remain the best over all players at his age and younger.
No.2: To defeat all players older than him.
ZZ has achieved No.1. Now, ZZ needs to achieve No.2.

Zulfadli Zulkifli is Malayisa's Best Bet for An Olympic Gold
Malaysian can put their hopes on this young, big talent Zulfadli Zulkifli (ZZ). After conquering the world in his age group, it's about time that this young man gets a proper guidance to become the world's best. Not that his father is not doing a good job, but getting into the real badminton world a lot more must be done, ZZ needs to learn more, needs more experience to become world beaters. It is about time his father let him go but only to monitor him from afar so that he will not astray from his main objectives. It is really about time.

It will be great if WCH willing to coach ZZ, together with ZZ's father, provided that he got him this far. If WCH and Zulkifli Sidek can work together, ZZ's gonna do great.

PLEASE DON'T COUNT YOUR CHICKENS BEFORE THEY ARE HATCHED!
Don't forget there must be World Junior Champions in the past who did not make it as World No.1.
Was LCW WJC? Did he make it to WR1? But he still come up short against LD.
Just be patient and wait until China and other powerhouses reveal their talented players in the coming years.

What I'm trying to remind is that there were WJCs in the past who did not make it big time. Just because ZZ is the current WJC is no guarantee that he will succeed in the professional ranks. There is still a long time between now and Oly 2016. In the interim period, new talents will emerge and those that may not have performed well during the last WJC may well surprise us later.
I think for the time being ZZ may be slightly ahead of his closest rivals but if his rivals continue to train hard with very good support from their National Associations and ZZ is still embroiled in political tussle between KLRC and BAM, then ZZ may well suffer setbacks and not be able to realize his ambition.
On the other hand, a seemingly less talented player may well overcome his earlier shortcomings/obstacles if he decides to work harder with an improved attitude and environment. I think LCW would fall under this category.
Time will tell how things will pan out and whether ZZ will live up to the expectations of so many who are now singing high praises of him.
And a REMINDER is not to expect too much and
STOP COUNTING THE CHICKENS BEFORE THEY ARE HATCHED!
Many talented Malaysian and other foreign players have disappointed at varying periods in the past when they were expected to succeed.

Andrew Kam: Zulfadli should be considered for exposure to priority tournaments
Just found this article;
By AJITPAL SINGH
07 December 2011
ZULFADLI Zulkifli's success on the international junior circuit just proved that local badminton clubs can produce champions on their own.
The 18-year-old, sponsored by Kuala Lumpur Racquet Club (KLRC), dominated junior badminton this year by winning the boys' singles title at the Asian Youth Championships before repeating the feat at the Commonwealth Youth event.
His biggest triumph, however, was his recent victory over Denmark's Victor Axelsen to become the first Malaysian world junior champion in the boys' singles in Taiwan.
KLRC chief Datuk Seri Andrew Kam said Zulfadli's progress and subsequent victories have shattered the myth that it's only BA of Malaysia which can produce quality players.
"We are a club that have shown we can produce champions. We want to help and guide Zulfadli to become a World and Olympic champion," Andrew said at his office in Kuala Lumpur recently.
"Zulfadli is an intelligent shuttler ... a natural like Taufik (Hidayat). He is unpredictable on court and a good finisher. Zulfadli wants to make an impact on the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and we want to help him do it.
"We are a great badminton nation but somehow we have failed to win World and Olympic titles. England, Denmark and even the United States have produced champions but we are still awaiting our first title in both tournaments.
"Zulfadli, I believe, is our next hope after Lee Chong Wei but I do hope more quality players will come through in the near future."
Andrew said the national team need a big pool of quality players to meet the challenges of the modern game. "We used to have several top players in the era of Wong Choong Hann. However, things have changed since then with Chong Wei being the only local capable of winning titles," he said.
Andrew noted that Zulfadli should be considered for exposure to priority tournaments.
