Who is the queen of badminton?
Is Lin Dan on the decline or is it the start of something new? Born in Fujiyan China, Lin Dan (or Super Dan as his fans appropriately call him), is considered as the greatest of all players to have ever played the game of badminton.
Although Saina Nehwal still commands the head-to-head against PV Sindhu, having won everytime against the Rio silver medalist except once, it is Sindhu who fares better otherwise.
The game is named for Badminton, the country estate of the dukes of Beaufort in Gloucestershire, England, where it was first played about 1873. The roots of the sport can be traced to ancient Greece, China, and India, and it is closely related to the old children’s game battledore and shuttlecock.
Taufik Hidayat is a retired world-famous badminton player who achieved the Indonesian Open six times in his career. He is a former World and Olympic champion in the men’s singles. Taufik Hidayat and Lin Dan had an open rivalry to achieve the top spot in the badminton world.
