    Nice lists. Could you make one to see who has the best win loss ratio since last Olympics?

    Another proof why Lin Dan is the GOAT. Lin Dan's win percentage was in 90's till 2014.

    Good job, Alan, really appreciate it.

    Up to week 21 ending 26th May 2016. For the younger players, esp those who just started out in their careers, their win - loss records or ratios may not be very meaningful or representative as compared with the older players who have been around much longer. I mean the comparison may be a bit unfair but nevertheless very useful and interesting to know as we follow their progress over time.

    Players with at least a 5-year active playing record should give us a better picture of their relative strengths and achievements, more indicative of their performance. That said, Lin Dan's records over a span of 12 - 14 years are truly, exceptional, phenomenal, justifying his unmatched status.

    Unfortunately, for the late bloomers like Hu Yun, Wei Nan and Sho Sasaki, I believe most of their wins are in the latter part of their career, thus not putting them in a favourable light.

    And for doubles players, if they are split and later formed new partnerships, the picture becomes complicated. Can't be helped, I suppose. So whenever we make comparisons, try to take all this situations and events into consideration, i.e. compare apples with apples, not apples to oranges.

    Many thanks, Alan Y. Very interesting stats. The WS data surprised me, He Bingjiao is top performer in percentage terms ?! Noticed she played the least number of matches, understandably so, as she only graduated from the junior circuit to pro circuit for about a year or so.

    Strange how you can be #25 in the world and still lose most of your matches.

    nice work.
    i think you need to qualify the 'all time' as probably from the mid 2000?

    Lin Dan is facing very tough competition from Chen Qingchen/ Zheng Sewie as the Numero Uno of Statistics.

    For me, I always rate singles above doubles, the two don't mix, not directly. In singles, you only have yourself, in doubles you depend on each other, the pair is as good as the weaker of the two.

    Doesn't this make doubles harder? It's harder to get 2 people in form than 1.
