    Lee Hyun Ill, a player that does not believe in stinging smashes but rather consistent angles and ease of execution, all performed (well mostly) by the retraction of his wrist fluidly before contact with the shuttle, has retired 3 times and came back 3 times - is coming back for a 4th time. Hoping that LHI will come back ASAP and colorized the dulling of LD's absence, LHI is a thrill to watch in his own 'Taufikish' demeanor and yet possesses Jorgensen's killer instinct. A cool headed player that doesn't babble to himself under stress of play, I believe he would have disposed off Icuk Sugiarto with ease if he had been in the latter's era. By the way, he is a humble fella.

    I noticed that myself, he always keeps cool and never (almost never) panics or gets frustrated... Good attitude!

    He's back again? :confused:
    I thought he had retired (again).

    Theoretically he would make a great coach. Steady nerve, consistent, hard-working. That 's great mentor material... if he knows how to pass it on.
    But since he's still playing, good luck to him. :)

    I was expecting to see LHI play in the VKBO 2014 but he was no where in sight.
    Has he retired for good?
    With regards to Park Sung-hwan, it seems his playing days are over as he was seen coaching Son Wan-ho.

    It is true they have been over for quite some time. As for the coaching, Son played only one match at the Korea Open and this photo shows Ahn Jae Chang was coaching him. I'm not saying you didn't see Park. I'm just asking if you are sure. Park is not a national team coach and Son isn't on the Yonex team, where Park does coach, which is why he was courtside for Hong Ji Hoon and Lee Dong Keun at the Korea GPG.
    As mentioned in the Badzine article linked to above, Lee is only playing tournaments where the Korean national team is not participating. The Korea GPG was a special case. He attempted to play the Malaysia IC in November but didn't have the points from his GPG win yet so he didn't make the cut. Look for him in an IC this spring or in the Djarum again or Axiata Cup, etc.

    Maybe I was mistaken but I did see PSH in one of the tournaments that SWH won or reached the final late last year. PSH has the height of CL but tended to be 'lazy' retrieving shots from his opponents. He did beat LD once and that is to his credit. I think he retired too early.

    Park actually beat Lin Dan 4 times. He retired because of a shoulder injury that he couldn't recover from. He did not even play domestically after the 2011 Worlds. As for the Macau and Vietnam, and even Chinese Taipei, all of which Son won, the coach you might have seen was Park Tae Sang. If you happened to see him on Youtube during one of the Superseries matches, you might recall Gillian Clark mentioning that he had beaten Bao Chunlai in the Athens Olympics.

    Park : Lin Dan = 4:13

    while

    LCW : LD = 9:22

    LCW did better than PSW against LD.
    LCW winning 29% : PSW winning 23%

    I expect him to participate in future super series

    Current ranking is 130. Can he make it back to top 20 or even top 10 again for his most probably last time burst of action before really ending his career for good

    LHI just won the Canadian Open GPG. He went through all his matches like a breeze, winning them all in two sets.
    This is great news. I wonder how his ranking will change.
    He is also participating in the US open, with stronger opponents. Lets see!

    After a bit of searching, I gather that he will jump to about the 80th ranking place. He he gets another good result at the US open, he will get very close to enter the SS without qualifications.
