    DRIVE - Watanabe if not Sukamuljo

    I dunno about you guys, but I've seen Zhang Nan and Hendra get out-driven by Sukamuljo too often to put them at the top.

    Sadly I'll have to take a pass as I'm absolutely horrendous at following and scrutinising MD to the level you lot do!

    Frankly, I'm much more into singles than doubles.

    Anyway, here goes:

    SERVE = None (imho, in doubles, there's little or no advantage in service but for receiving serve, yes. However, if I had to pick one, my choice is Zhang Nan).)

    RETURN OF SERVE = Lee Yong Dae, Zhang Nan, Rankireddy/Shetty (either one as I've mixed up their names)

    DRIVES = None (fast flat exchanges? Then I'd say, Kevin/Marcus and Tan WK/Goh V Shem, perhaps Zhang Nan)

    NET PLAY = Kevin Sukamuljo, Cai Yun

    INTERCEPTION = Kevin Sukamuljo, Tan Wee Kiong/Goh V Shem, Zhang Nan

    DEFENCE = Endo/Watanabe (as a pair), Kevin Sukamuljo/Marcus Gideon (as a pair), Setiawan/Ahsan (as a pair), Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (as a pair)

    VARIATION = Zhang Nan, Hendra Setiawan

    SMASH = Fu Haifeng, Yoo Yeon Seong, Wang Chi Lin, Li Junhui (in disorder)

    FOOTWORK = None (I tend to think it's less important in doubles than in singles. For doubles, it's mostly raw speed and scrambling as you have another partner to cover the return shot)

    PHYSICALITY = Wang Chi Lin , Ko Sung Hyun, Yeon Seong, Fu Haifeng, Vladimir Ivanov, Li Junhui, (not in any order)

    MENTAL STRENGTH = Cai Yun/Fu Haifeng (as a pair), Fu Haifeng/Zhang Nan (as a pair), Hendra Setiawan (Ahsan less so), Mathias Boe/Carsten Morgensen (as a pair)

    Serve - Lee Yong Dae spin serve
    Return of Serve - Hendra Setiawan
    Drives - Lee Yong Dae
    Net Play - Cai Yun
    Interception - Sukamuljo
    Defence - Lee Yong Dae
    Variation - Zhang Nan/Hendra Setiawan
    Smash - Fu Haifeng
    Footwork - Koo Kien Keat (becoming fat made him more efficient at footwork :D) else I can't think of anyone in particular because it's less important in single, so it's certainly equivalent to physicality which is :
    Physicality - Ko Sung Hyun
    Mental Strength - Cai Yun

    Celebration - Mathias Boe/Sujamuljo
    Trickshot - Koo Kien Keat
    Dropshot - Jung Jae Sung
    Most talented pair ever - Koo Kien Keat/Tan Boon Heong

    Most All round - Jung Jae Sung, a great back player as everybody know, with infinite smashs that could rivale with Fu Haifeng (according to pro, it was as hard to get), great drop, good placement, and he was able to be excellent at net at time. Also Tony Gunawan and Kim Dong-Moon, haven't watch a lot of their match but from what i've seen, both of them could play consistently good at front and back
