    Cool Which player(s)/pair(s) to watch in 2011??..

    ..with another super-packed 2010 BWF calendar year coming to an end in just a few days or so,
    which player(s)/pair(s) do you guys think or feel or just absolutely know will be the player(s)/pair(s) to watch next year??..

    MS:
    With LD winning arguably the last of the major individual titles & finally marrying XXF, will we see the decline of Super Dan's dominance? Or will he find another source of inspiration in his pursuit of a seemingly challenging goal of repeating his 2008 OG MS Gold; and in the same process, literally securing a feat as arguably badminton's best MS player ever in history?
    Will SuperDan continue his dominance? Or will he reserve more of his energy and only focus on major individual/team tourneys?
    Or will we see Datuk LCW continue his presence as the no.1 MS ranked player in the world? And will he win another major as he did in 2010 (AE)? Will Dato LCW be able to overcome his current multiple injuries and toughen up? Or will his injuries bother him all yr long?
    How about the legendary veterans like Taufik and Gade, will they be able to challenge LD and/or LCW? or even win a major title?
    Or will we see another player, such as INA's Dionysius H. Rumbaka continue his performance, with now Li Mao as a coach for the INA team?
    How about the young phenom, Viktor Axelsen or several younger players challenging the big boys?

    WS:
    Who will challenge the loaded but sometimes unpredictable CHN WS squad? What's gonna happen to Wang Yihan as she struggles to get her form and confidence back?
    Will we see Saina continue her form and challenge the CHN WS players?
    Or will the talented, young up-and-comer, Ratchanok Intanon, continue to shock the WS world? Or will Tai Tzu Ying dethrone the Thai baddy princess and claim the WJC WS title in her home court in TPE?
    Or will we see an unknown WS player shock the world even more?

    WD:
    Which pair will challenge the consistent and seemingly unbreakable CHN WD dominance?
    Will the KOR squad get over the retirement of LHJ?
    Do INA, MAS, IND, JPN, THA, DEN gals stand a chance?

    MD:
    Which pair will step forth this yr as the dominant pair?
    Or will we see the same old, same old top 4 pairs jockeying up to secure pts for the 2012 OG?
    Will KOR's Doubles specialist & baddy idol, Lee Yong Dae, continue his magic as he continues to recover from his injury?
    How about KKK & TBH? Will they finally go on an uphill climb and hopefully will keep on climbing til the end of 2012 OG? (yes, it'll be a long climb)..Or will they settle with their usual roller-coaster, up and down ride, culminating at the top of the hill winning the 2012 OG? Will KKK decide to slim down or will he..ahem..balloon up even more?
    What will happen to INA's MD supreme pair, Markis Kido & Hendra Setiawan? Will they finally get their long sought after AE title?
    Or will we see the rise of the young KOR pairs as well as the INA & the much talked abt MAS pairs?
    How about CHN TPE's duo of Fang CM & Lee SM?

    XD:
    Which pair will step forward to become the leading XD pair in this seemingly wide open field?
    Will we see the rise of new young pairs?
    Will Zheng Bo reunite with Ma Jin?

    Some interesting questions and queries to ponder:
    - Will CHN defend and win another Sudirman Cup?
    - Will Ratchanok and Viktor defend their WJC individual title?
    - Who will win the inaugural Korea Open PSS biggest prizes?
    - Will Taufik & Kido & Setiawan finally win their missing AE title?
    - Will Dato LCW win the WC title next yr? Will he even defend his AE title?

    ..yes, so many questions to ponder..so, let's hear 'em & pull out your crystal ball (if you don't have one, OTB might have an extra one to share?)

    ..yes, limsy? i can feel your fingers are about to hit those keyboards..

    MS - Chen Long(CHN) : Will he continue to improve and continue to make his seniors feel nervous or will he still be in the shadows despite winning his first SS title? BCL is getting out of the picture and CL is seen to be the one who replace BCL. Can he perform?
    Wang Zhengming (CHN) : Although he has impressed in the BAC and also in the CHN Masters, but he still haven't beat LCW, LD, PG or TH yet and in fact lost tamely to LD, LCW and TH. Will he do better and beat one of them this year?
    Kenichi Tago : Will he ever find his AE form again this year?

    MD
    Chai Biao : He seems to be paired up with Guo Zhendong in the MO 2011, I hope some CHN fans can provide some info as to why Zhang Nan stopped playing MD since the China Open where they reached the final. Is it because he wants to concentrate on XD, or is it only temporary?
    Ko Sung Hyun/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) : They have done well in 2010, can they keep it up in 2011?

    Heard Xu Chen is the weak link. Guo Zhendong deserves a better partner but should the ZN/CB pair be split?

    No it shouldn't be split, LYB does crazy things sometimes (like sacking ZB) but more often than not, he is right about the decisions he makes. Let's just wait and see

    Yes, indeed he plays very good at the WC, and after that we don't see him anymore ... i would know the reason for that. In my opinion ZB is one of the best mix players of the chinese sqaud ... no?
