    All of us have seen this great player and his fantastic style of playing. But there are stilll some questions about this player. As a Gade fan, these are some of my questions. what do u think? post ur answers or add questions to the lists.:)

    QUESTOINS:

    Will Peter Gade beat Lin Dan(Lin beats Gade 5-1 so far)?
    Will Gade win a championship if Lin Dan's in the same competition?
    Will Gade hold his no2 spot in the rankings?
    Will Gade regain his 100% strength like before?
    Will Gade win in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing?

    1) why not. its possible.
    2) same as 1
    3) maybe no. he could drop in rankings :( but he may also go UP! :)
    4) already did. just stiffer competition now i think :confused:
    5) i hope so too

    i was wondering if peter can beat lin dan because i think that peter has already reached his prime while lin dan is still in his early 20s and reached the to spot already.............

    1/ that should be possible :p
    2/ what do you mean?
    3/ that's possible too...
    4/ I don't think he can get much stronger than he is currently, he is at 100% now.
    5/ I don't think so because
    a) of his (proven) unability to cope with the pressure
    b) of his age by then

    1) it's not impossible
    2) if he beats him. then there's higher chances
    3) either that or he drops. it'll take more to go up, really
    4) is he in 100% form now?
    5) i honestly don't think so either

    The difference of #2 from #1 is: if he beats other players in competitions, he will be able to gain points and increase his standing(doesnt have to be Lin Dan)

    ADD ON QUESTION:
    Is hidayat Taufik really better than Peter Gade(Gade beats Taufik 6-2, but Gade was beaten by Taufik at the recent Athens Olympics)?

    Peter Gade can beat anyone when it isn't important, he just can't perform when the pressure gets too high...
    He can certainly beat Taufik regularly in normal tournaments, but he probably won't beat him in Olympics, World Champs or Thomas Cup capital matches.

    Maybe you're right seven............. i guess he never won any major or big competitions by himself. But even if you're right, the match between taufik and gade during the olympics wasnt even at the finals.........he cant be pressured at that level............ryt?

    I think the pressure is very high in ANY round of the Olympics...
    Some players perform better under pressure, others under-perform... that's life! ;)

    ADD ON QUESTION:
    If Gade was not injured and still the old Gade he used to be, will he be able to defeat tough opponents(like LinDan,Chen Hong,Taufik etc) and win championships like the TU cup and the olympics?

    unlikely either. he was never that good before this either. chances are slim that he would win.

    i'm not being partial towards the chinese here ok? geez, it's rather tiring to have to keep repeating that.

    I don't think it would change anything. Peter Gade's problem in big events is mainly mental, not physical nor technical.
    I think his net-smash-kill game is maybe to predictive too... (I don't think he can easily change his gamestyle and stay as effective though, so there's not much he can do)

    You just need to look at a few of his matches in big events (Sydney Olympics, 2001 world champs, etc...)
    Gade is on top form in these events, he just can't cope with the pressure, I think all observers agree on this...
