    in the overall big badminton scheme of things.. the SEA games individual gold don't really mean much as there were no intanon or ginting or gideon/kevin .. but as a morale booster.. well ok. .fine.. but BAM's Norza seems a bit too happy.

    on a non party-pooper side of things.. i am glad Kisona finally gets some attention. She deserves it

    So a good start for LZJ in the new year. The win over SYQ and AA is an incredible morale booster. The feeling that you can be among the best is priceless. Let's go LZJ!!

    I believe after the Malaysian Masters, he has stolen wins from the top 8 except Momota Kento and the Indonesians (Ginting and Christie). Well done!

    Hopefully he will find a way to crack Momota and his Indonesian counterparts soon - the last time he played against them he was outplayed in all aspects.

    That battle with Axelsen won me over. LZJ has shown me he really is world beater standard.

    Yeah, this was a great result. It might be a blessing in disguise that he didn't get to the finals on his first outing - a reminder that nothing will come easy. Want to avoid doing a Hafiz Hashim.

    Indeed, but enough of everything resting on one player's shoulders too. Cheam and the other players should be backup as well. Look at Denmark, tiny nation of 6 million people. When JOJ was out, Axelsen could fill in easily. If Axelsen is out, no doubt Antonsen and Gemke would more than prove their worth.

    LZJ is definitely a world beater now. He can match any of the world best. Given his tall lanky height he uses such minimal movement to reach the shuttle, it's definitely energy conserving. Normally a tall player will be weak in defence but he defending skill is astonishing. His plus point will be his attack, full smash so lethal. Such a joy to watch him play.

    Agreed, the gripe I had before was that because of his size, he used to lumber around the court. But in the last 12 months, he has certain become more deft and his defense was sensational. Continue improving this form and staying injury free (is it me or do tall players seem to get injured more easily?) is going to get him some big titles.

    Lee Chong Wei successor, the wait is over ;)
    I notice this young man has strong character to relied on, one of most important factors to be a world beater, he's ready to be the leader and under the spotlight.

    He breaks top 10, highest BWF world ranking so far in his career and automatically all of his opponents will pay more attention to scrutinize all his technical aspects, style of play, game plan, etc.

    LCW has some good points here though:

    "Zii Jia has shown the world what he’s capable of and this makes him a target for all his rivals from now on. His game will now come under tremendous scrutiny, and he can expect every player he has defeated to gun for him."

    I've always felt that the legends were legends because they could stay on top despite being under great scrutiny.

    He's basically saying, it gets harder and harder, you sure you want to do this?

    With the Olympic games postponed until 2021, I would consider LZJ to be a top contender for a medal at Tokyo 2020 (21).

    Given the improvements he managed to make in a year alone, if he keep improving during another year, he could become the dark horse for the next Olympics.
