    as the final piece of his trophy cabinet is complete and the legend of Greatest Badminton Player of All Time is in the final pages, it is de beginning of the end of Super Dan's dominance.
    with nothing significant until de 2012 london olympics, lin dan will juz let chen jin and de china juniors to continue conquering de world.
    maybe Super Dan will come out once in a while simply for the benefit of his overseas frens.
    chinese domestic badminton standard is already higher den what de world can offer.

    Just wondering if Lin Dan will turn to coaching although I don't think that he will. He has achieved everything that he has achieved as a player, so I was just wondering if he wants to stamp a mark on the coaching scene too. Lin Dan has earned my highest degree of respect.

    he is too valuable to badminton not to impart his tremendous experience, knowledge and winning mentality to the next generation. for sure he will also be legendary coach, someone like tang hsien-hu and li yongbo.

    I'd like to see him defend his Olympic title, but I think he'll struggle to stay motivated for the next 2 years and may just call it a day and hand over the reigns to Chen Jin/Chen Long. Greatest Of All time though, without a doubt.

    I doubt LD will call it a day just yet. The Chinese has this "team" mentality that China still need him to fend off LCW challenges for major titles for the next 2 years. As seen in the AG, China's next-in-line men single, CJ is still not LCW's match and the 3rd/ 4th single CL/WZM, although have the talents and the potentials, are still too raw, inexperience & inconsistence when playing top class players like LCW, TH, & PG. As LD is younger than LCW by 1 year, I guess LD can afford to "retire" only after LCW hangs up his racket, given their current physical states prevail.

    Totally agree with you, prolinescream

    And congratulation to Super Dan!

    I guess we can now call Lin Dan the greatest badminton player of all time

    ..as mentioned and discussed numerous times before, LD will probably be focused more for the team events in the foreseeable future (defending the Sudirman Cup (2011) and the TC(2012))..But should the coaches want him to qualify for the 2012 OG (a country with 3 players in the top 4 Singles WR will be able to send 3 players), he'll need to participate and do well (not necessarily means he'll win) in a lot of the tournaments starting in May of 2011 til end of April of 2012..We shall see what happens starting next May..:cool:

    yes, lin dan has collected almost all the titles there is to win

    but for olympic 12, you think he can just choose and play again?

    you should surf for the new ruling on olympic qualification released a couple of months ago.

    to qualify for olympic 12 is not that simple.
