Never in the history of our game have we been so blessed with two badminton players of such superlative abilities at the same time and yet so different that makes them almost diametrically opposite. They are both match winning machines.
Right now their head to head stands at 25-12 in favour of Lin Dan. However in the last couple of years, it can be seen that there is nothing separating the two now. They seem to be at level par right now. Lee Chong Wei’s win against Lin Dan at the Rio Olympics is a proof of that, going 21-19 in the third set.
But who is the better? Lin Dan or Lee Chong Wei? I think its down to personal choice. They are the ultimate arch rivals of badminton. Without the other, we would be talking about a singular player who is light years ahead of the rest.
Here is a great video showing side by side similar techniques, style and speed of the two Legendary Players.
