The All England Open Badminton Championships is an annual British badminton tournament created in 1899. For four decades beginning 1954, the Championships was held at the Wembley Arena, London but since 1994, it has been played at the Arena Birmingham in the city of Birmingham, United Kingdom.[1] The Gentlemen's Singles was first contested in 1900.[2] Below is the list of the winners at the All England Open Badminton Championships in gentlemen's singles. The tournament was cancelled between 1915–1919 because of World War I, and between 1940–1946 because of World War II.

History

In the Amateur Era, Rudy Hartono (1968–1974, 1976) holds the record for the most titles in the Gentlemen's Singles, winning All England eight times. Hartono also holds the record for most consecutive titles with seven from 1968 to 1974.

Since the Open Era of badminton began in late 1979[3][4] with the inclusion of professional badminton players from around the world in 1980, Lin Dan (2004, 2006–2007, 2009, 2012, 2016) holds the record for the most Gentlemen's Singles titles with six. Morten Frost (1986–1987), Hariyanto Arbi (1993–1994), Poul-Erik Høyer Larsen (1995–1996), Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei (2010–2011) share the record for most consecutive victories with just two.

This event was won without losing a single game in the entire tournament during the Open Era as many as twelve times. The first to accomplish this was Prakash Padukone who won in the very first Open Era edition in 1980, followed by Morten Frost in 1986 and 1987, Yang Yang in 1989, Poul-Erik Høyer Larsen in 1996, Sun Jun in 1998, Pullela Gopichand in 2001, Muhammad Hafiz Hashim in 2003, Chen Jin in 2008, Lin Dan in 2009 and 2012 and Lee Chong Wei in 2011.

Liem Swie King is the only player in history to reach the All England Open Badminton Gentlemen's Singles Final in both the Amateur and Open Era. He managed to do so a total of seven times, winning on three occasions.

Trivia

  • In 1913 & 1914 Guy A. Sautter competed under the alias of U. N. Lapin and in 1920 George Thomas played under the alias of George Allen.
  • Only nine players have ever contested at least five finals back-to-back, with six of the records taking place back-to-back themselves. However, only the latter four of those players have done so in the Open Era. Those who have accomplished this rare feat include Frank Devlin, immediately after George Alan Thomas, followed by Morten Frost succeeding Liem Swie King more than half a century after, and finally more than two decades later, the legendary duo of Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei going down the same path:
