    RIP.

    One of the players to evolve the sport in terms of physique and training regimes, at a point in time where all the players were amateurs.

    If I recall correctly, he had a full time job, and practiced badminton 7 days a week in the "non summer months". Then he had 2-3 months a year where he cut down on badminton to play tennis.

    A very professional amateur, and a great person for Badminton in the late 50ies and 60ies.

    Also the first European to really come out to India and play for longer periods of time, travelling the country.

    Cheers,
