    Peter Gade will host a live chat at www.petergade.net on Thursday the 25th of April, at 7pm (CET). I will try to attend. Maybe we should coordinate some questions from us here at Badminton Central? (And no, I don't think he'll want to be asked about Camilla!)

    Just now, I went to Peter Gade's website, and from his announcement, I feel that the atmosphere of his article is quite solemn. I don't know why, I have that bad feeling that Peter Gade might say something that we won't want to hear like he would like to retire, etc. Just hope that this doesn't happen.

    Mag, thanks for the heads-up. yes. let's do some question asking.

    here are a few:

    1. how's your injury?
    2. are you disappointed you won't be able to play in the TC?
    3. China, Denmark, Indonesia, Korea and Malaysia has very even teams, whom do you predict will emerge as the victor?
    4. what's your daily training routine like?
    5. being such a small country, Denmark has managed to produce world class players one after the other. have been through the whole process, what do you think is the key to it?
    6. Denmark men's single has basically been supported by yourself only in the recent yrs. do you see any promising youngster who will be able to take over once you think you are too tired?
    7. how many fan emails/mails do you get everyday? do you answer them all?
    8. (shameless plug) do you come to BadmintonCentral.com? ;)

    10. You mentioned you use BG65 at 32 lbs in the past. What are the advantages and disadvantages of using this this particular string over BG70pro/BG80 (if you have tried those other strings)?

    11. Why do you use 32lbs string tension?

    12. Do you have any plans to become a coach?

    13. Do you ever get bored of badminton? Or feel tired when the next person you meet talks to you about badminton?

    14. Sometimes, performance during training may not be up to par? How do you overcome that?

    15. Your training schedule..how do you plan it? Is it on a daily basis or is it preplanned from the day/week before?

    16. Do you keep to a special diet during training or during competition? What sort of fluids do you take before and during a match and how much in quantity?

    17. Do you mind coaching me? :)

    I just read through the chat with Gade last night.

    I found it very interesting.

    Wouldn't it be great if we could get other players from other nations to do the same.

    Maybe Badmintonforum.com could set it up?

    i'd love to. except we don't know any of the players. we want someone famous, like say, Xia, or Hendrawan, or Taufik, how about Kim/Ha/Ra?

    but we don't know them. if you have connections, please let me know, i will definitely set it up!!
