    While Feng Yun Just manage to achieve one single titles which is Swiss Open in their 1st year of making a remarks on international badminton arena.. KKK/TBH already got 5 titles in their 1st year of partnership. That's a marvelous achievement for a newly forge pair...

    Zheng / Gao was extremely exhausted in the final. Don't forget, they won the encounter in Istora Senayan Jakarta, the most terrific place for any foreigner players / pairs. even in the 2nd set, they won it quite easily 21-12

    this is totally unrelated - no one skipped anything this time.
    hm... i promise i havent looked up the rankings and historical records...
    #1 ranked player? Roslin. I remember he lost to a HKG player in round 2 and caused a big hoo ha.
    #2 Peter Rasmussen won the 1997 WC, totally pwning Sun Jun in Tokyo, not the 2003. 2003 was won by Xia Xuanze in an epic 3 game battle against WCH in Birmingham which saw WCH's stamina fading in the 3rd game... get your facts correct before quizzing me :p
    #3 ranked player? if im not wrong it was Bao who dissapointingly lost to the lower seeded Lee Chong Wei in the QF or the SF...
    #4 ranked player? I think it was Luluk/Alvent who suprisingly lost to Tony and Bach when everyone never gave them a chance. It was a straight game match i think...
    #5 ranked player? this is stretching my memory a bit far... lemme guess: Anthony and Robert...

    correct?

    Exactly, badMania! It is not very fair to compare Lily-Nova's record against Gao Ling-Zheng Bo because Lily-Nova has been around longer. And they have won tons of tournaments... Too lopsided in favor of Lily-Nova... :p

    EVEN in terms of rankings, Lily-Nova was the #1 pair on Earth for many many many more weeks than GL-ZB who just became the #1 pair recently... Not fair lah... Lily-Nova are a solid established XD pair... Even in terms of amount of time it took for the then newly established pair [Lily-Nova] in 2005 to become World Champions were impressive.

    Correct!

    Oh, you got my trap correctly. Good! I was just testing people's memory about who won the BIG tournaments. ;) I wasn't quizzing you personally, vching. That post clearly was not for you individually. I am already convinced that you like rankings a lot. :p That's fine. That's your right.

    Most people just don't consider rankings as the BIG lasting legacy... :p

    HISTORY IS THE PAST ... BADMINTON are actually in danger of losing its statue in Olympic Games if One single country keeps on dominating on it.. Might be in future, BadMad Fans will only have to see some classic games between top players in SS finals or etc ..

    Their MD are weakened for some times..But with the emergence of JJS/LYD & LJJ/HJM . They are simply no pushover... I predict this time when most of the fans guess the OG MD gold was between Feng Yun; MK/HS & KKK/TBH.. The KOREAN will make another big surprise there !

    Surely between 2003-2007, China is the most dominant. ;)
    In the 20th century, no! Please compare... ;) Go ahead!

    oh whatever - if you want me to list the seeds - also can :
    #2 seed in 2003 was Kenneth Jonassen i think... Chen Hong was top seed

    but this is not my point - my point is that winning one WC isn't worth as much a consistant performance in many many tournaments. WC is just one tournament, and its one overrated one too!
