    Started badminton at age: seven
    How I got started: My parents played badminton once a week, and one day I wanted to play with them. It was easy for me to play and I enjoyed it so much that I began to play in Charlottenlund Badminton Klub when I was seven years old.
    Current ranking: http://www.bwfbadminton.org/page.aspx?id=14955
    Best results: Winner of Denmark Open Super Series 2008 & 2009, Super Series Finals 2009, Hong Kong Open Super Series 2010, Bronze medal at the World Championship in 2009, Silver medal at Sudirman Cup 2011.
    Sponsors: Yonex (at time of writing; Babolat since Q4 2012)

    Short portrait:
    As a person: I see myself as an entertaining and funny person and if you ask my friends they would say the same. Not too long ago I got a son (2 y.o.) and with him around I guess I am a bit more down to earth.
    Favorite holiday destination: Malaysia
    Favorite movie: Deuce Bigalow
    Other interests besides (your) sport: trotting races and football
    Work: through temp agency at residential institution; starting work at local high school after the summer

    As a player: I play with my emotions and temper and everybody can see if I am winning or losing. I believe I have smashed my part of rackets but over the years I have learned to use my temper in a positive way.
    What makes you one of the best in your sport: I am very determined in my training and want to be the best of the world in my sport.

    Ambitions with the sport: My goal is to win a medal at the World Championship that is coming up and to get an olympic medal too.

    Winner of Denmark Open 2008,2009

    36 y.o and still playing well.

    @azrenth In IBL, those clubs bid for foreigner players and not a pair. I also saw Markis Kido played with someone not his usual partner (sorry I forgot his name)

    Is he going to retire after the olympics? At 38 years of age I think it's unlikely that he will continue. Unless he wants to follow the footsteps of Mateusiak whos still doing quite well at 40 years of age :p

    Anyone else notice that most of the time he has a double action on his serve?

    Good and bad news on Fischer:

    His ancle surgery was very successful, and doctors said that he would expect 3 weeks in plaster then another 3 weeks in a special hard boot, then he could start his physical recovery training and expect to play again 4 months after the injury.

    Fischer himself was optimistic after these news, and he was confident that he would be able to work hard with the recovery and back on court in a record 3 months.

    However, the Danish federation announced today, that they no longer see Fischer as a medal contender for OG 2020, so they are breaking up the XD pair.

    They will still support Fischer and keep him in the squad, to pair him up with a younger player, and try to use him for "knowledge transfer".

    7 year younger Christinna Pedersen will initially be paired with Mathias Kristiansen.

    The federation stressed that this decision was made before the WC, and they know it is tough news for Fischer, in light of his unfortunate injury.

    Cheers,

    In fact they have also paired Line Kjærsfeldt with Anders Skaarup Rasmussen. Most Danish fans have hoped to see LK move into XD, where she has a very high potential. The consensus seems to be, that she will not be able to reach top 5 in singles, and thus may be wasting her XD chances in pursuit of the coveted singles success.

    I don't know if LK herself is ready to ditch the singles career in hunt for XD fame.

    What kind of injury was it? I watched the match, looked like he kinda stumbled a bit, but didn't look that serious. Perhaps it was pre-existing and he aggravated it?

    Really? I watched the match. Really it didn't look like he twisted it or landed hard...
