..i thought there are more Taufik Hidayat & SDK fans in BC???..
maybe they think Taufik and SDK are older compared to Simon, and Simon has the potential to become the Ina MS#1. Haha... U take a look at Simon's recent performance, he is in a good form

Malaysia's Lee and China's Lin are the men to watch in world championship
By TRUNG LATIEULE - AP Writer
PARIS: 'Super Dan' will be again the man to beat at the badminton world championships next week.
Lin Dan of China is the only player in badminton history to have won three straight world titles.
But Lee Chong Wei of Malaysia, who is chasing his first world title, hopes to end Lin's dominance.
The top-seeded Lee will go into the event high on confidence: he has won six tournaments this year and is on a 16-match winning streak.
Lee has a losing record (6-14) against Lin but he still remains the player with the most wins over the reigning world and Olympic champion.
Taking on the world: (From left) Lee Chong Wei, Tan Boon Heong and Koo Kien Keat have extra motivation to be world champions.
The Malaysian, however, will face many hurdles on his path to the title. He could meet Jan Jorgensen of Denmark in the third round, 2004 Olympic champion Taufik Hidayat of Indonesia in the quarterfinals and Lin in the semifinals.
Lee will play Kevin Cordon of Guatemala in the first round on Monday while Lin takes on Ali Shah Hosseini of Iran.
In the bottom half of the draw, Peter Gade of Denmark will be Europe's best chance of winning the title.
The reigning European champion could meet Sony Dwi Kuncoro of Indonesia in the quarters and 2009 world runner-up Chen Jin of China in the semis.
Gade is the only European ranked in the top 10 and the last player to have defeated Lin.
No European has won the men's world title since Peter Rasmussen of Denmark in 1997.

My sentiments exactly, and the source of much irritation. How can someone turn on the style at will and be so much better? LD can do this, and has done this so many times.
It's possible LD may lose to an unexpected player, but if LD & LCW meet, then it hard to see LCW coming out of this on top.
So sorry for those 5 voters who voted SDK...........as SDK will not play in WC due to injury.
chongwei should prove he is better than lin dan..
and prove he can beat lindan at all
im sure 99% lin dan will beat by chongwei
Welcome on board.
Please use dark coloured fonts. Could hardly read your comments.
