    Plus the fact that he was in his career peek so far.

    Everything seemed to come together at the right moment, preparing his season towards this tournament. Physically, mentally, resultswise - building it up.

    He's the only one to get the better of Lin Dan since, well, since forever it seems. And with his recent good results in Singapore, he must have been fired up.

    Such a shame.

    ----

    Jan can be a bit fragile mentally, dealing with these let-downs. Like he can have a tendency to feel just a tad sorry for himself - that he has a harder time than his opponents. Hopefully he'll get past this one, physically and mentally, very fast, without being set back too much.

    I covered Jan's match against Wang Zheng Ming in the quarter final of the HK Open 2104. A very interesting match up. Wang Zheng Ming had a good feel for the shuttle yet still lost.

    BC: Congratulations on the win Jan. We'd like to ask a few questions. Tell us about the incident in the second game when both you and Wang were at the net. Your racquet broke yet you still managed to hit Wang's shot back over the net. We saw that you took a small swing at the shuttle rather than blocking but the umpire still gave Wang the point.

    Jan: Thanks. Yes, That's what exactly happened. I did take a small swing. The rules say you can't block but as you saw, I did swing. It's difficult for the umpire though.

    BC: Did the umpire tell you why you didn't get the point?

    Jan: No. He didn't. Broken racquets happen. It broke on the previous stroke and I string pretty tight

    BC: What is your string and tension?

    Jan: BG80 at 15kgs - it's a good string!

    BC: I know. I use it myself!

    BC: How about the changeover of the third game? Just before then, we noticed things were getting excited between you and the coaches.

    Jan: It was difficult at the 1st part of the third game. There's quite a drift and my clears were short. Changing over, I had the drift with me so kept attacking.

    BC: You have a tatoo on you forearm. What is that?

    Jan: (Laughs) Oh that! It's a ladder that never ends - goes up and up, you know.....

    BC: Like up and up so there's no limit

    Jan: Yeah (smiles)

    BC: Thanks Jan and good luck for tomorrow!

    Disappointed in JoJ at this year's Indonesia Open. He got a very beatable Tago in the finals. For once, JoJ didn't have to face LCW, Chen Long, or LD in the final. JoJ couldn't seal the deal. JoJ won't get too many finals where LCW, Chen Long, and LD are absent.

    I always expect JoJ to put up a fight. He has always been a fighter. But he collapsed in the 3rd set. It's true that Tago raised his game in the 3rd set. But JoJ didn't raise his to match Tago. The funny thing is, you'd expect a veteran like JoJ to maintain his composure. Instead, it was the young Tago that was able to maintain his composure.

    On top of that, the crowd was supporting JoJ and Indonesia is half way around the world from Denmark. JoJ, you have the tools to take it to the next level. Hope you can focus next time.

    Sorry to say this. Are you talking about this indonesian open finals?

    Tago did not reach finals at all. That was Kento momota.

    He's not been playing well recently at all. I wonder what's up.

    Injuries is what's up. Two long periods with injuries... From December to European Team championships (2 months out), and again from European individual championships until Thomas Cup, he didn't play a single game at full speed.

    Combine this with HKV's recent form (who himself plummeted from his ranking of #8 last year, but now are regaining his strength), and you have a difficult decision as Danish coach for the Olympics. But to be honest, I feel it's a no-brainer. Jan's ceiling is so much higher than HK's - if Jan gets in the zone, he can potentially win it all. There are virtually 6 players to bet on as possible finalists, and with Momoto out there are 5 left. CL, LD, LCW, VA and JOJ. Of course there can come an outsider and surprise, like CTC or SWH, but it I think these 5 players all watch out for each other. They are ranked 1-5 even now when they are all building up for the Olympics (a year where some of the players outside top 5 would be able to get a few easier wins, if they aim their efforts at an earlier peak time).

    So, perhaps HKV is better than JOJ at the moment, but since he would never get to the top-5 (I see his maximum being at 6-10 in the world), why not gamble on Jan and hope that he can string together 3 months of preparation without injuries?

    Congratulations to Jan O' Jorgensen for winning the China open and finally beating Chen Long in a late round in the SS to seal the deal.
