    If 4 of them are to retire after the OG London, then we might have a new era of badminton in men's singles:)

    If that happens, we will be left with a gaping hole in internatinal badminton. I'd rather not think about that day.

    off topic (replying here because the other thread is now locked):
    ..ya, LCW won the CHN TPE Open before (some 6 yrs back). But we were referring to a SS-level tourney and one which is held in mainland China.;)

    I predict that LD will retire after OG and LCW will continue you for 1 more year to collect his first WC title and call it an end.

    Maybe 'LCW will continue you for 1 more year to TRY TO collect his first WC title and call it an end' but by then, it could be CJ time to shine or someone from CHN;)

    Lee Chong Wei will call it quit after the 2012 London Olympics

    .
    World No.1 Lee Chong Wei announced today (Saturday 02-April-2011) he will call it quit after the 2012 London Olympics.

    Source: http://my.news.yahoo.com/chong-wei-says-retire-london-olympics-20110402-072906-685.html

    "I want to give the young players the opportunity to play and make a name
    for themselves and the country," he told reporters here.

    He also welcomed Datuk Misbun Sidek''s decision to return to the national
    team after announcing abruptly in January that he had resigned from the post.

    Chong Wei said Misbun''s decision was a wise move.

    "He will be able to train and unearth new talents from the back-up squad.

    With his experience, I''m confident he can find my replacement," said Chong Wei,
    adding that Misbun had a good insight of the game and able to provide good
    guidance to the players.

    Misbun announced yesterday (Friday 01-April-2011) that he would return to the national team (BAM).
