Obviously not they have less of all significant titles/majors. While Hendra's longevity is remarkable, Cai still comes from a different generation of Chinese players where normal retirement age was actually before 30 due to the battering their bodies took early in their career already. It's not entirely apples to apples when talking about age - also having had heart surgery might have sth to do with him not playing until 35 Anyway, there's no rational argument you can make as to why Ahsan/Setiawan are a better pair. Hendra can be ranked above Cai as an individual player, which I'd tend to agree with. Very different types of player, but his sustained success (or rather his numerous comebacks) edges it to Hendra imop. Correction: they have the same number of AE titles, and fewer OG/WC medals. Significantly fewer.
