    I couldn't find any thread on this, but wow and woohoo at the same time for Malaysia.

    Can someone provide more insight to this match? What happen. Is Peter on his way down already?

    My opinion

    Hi:
    Yes, I think Peter is on his way down, sad to say but it's true in my opinion. If you see his recent performance in various tournaments, his smashes no longer threatening as once before.

    After Gade's surgery, Gade didn't look as good as before.

    But then LCW is not bad also. He justs lacks consistency just like half the malaysian team [​IMG]

    I think he lost confidence on himself also not able to beat Lin Dan. :)

    The guy is undoubtably one of the great players of the modern era - I have seen him play on TV as well as the many tricks he pulled against his opponents. Peter is by all means, a special player above many. Inborn talent is the best way to describe this player.

    Yet, he is getting old and the injury that sidelined him for a year is beginning to take its toll. He is facing up against younger and faster players whom are all fired up to do one over this Danish legend and secure their place in world badminton.

    So why is it so surprising for him to be defeated? LCW isn't exactly a rookie who just picked up a racquet too, but a promising trickster refining his strokes and moves on the court with each ongoing game.

    You are absolutely right regarding LCW's capability.He will be one of Malaysia's
    greatest players to emerge and bring back past glories.Just wait and see...:D

    Peter had been improving gradually since his injury as is evidenced by his climb to number 2 in the world - I believe he was focusing on the Olympics and had a great chance of winning until he came up against an in form Taufik and his old psychological concerns beat him in a tight match. He also showed great disappointment when losing narrowly to xia in his home Danish open semifinal since then I believe he is not as focused on his training because of his new family and he is struggling to find the same motivation. Then again I could be wrong.

    Thanks for all the great insight about Peter Gade.

    Great showings by the Malaysians. With the exception of WS and WD, they are in the finals for all the events.

    The ladies seemed to be the weakest link for MAL. Is that a tradition?

    Sad to say, yes. The reasons would pull the discussion into cultural biases.

    I was going to say religion, too, but Indonesian women shuttlers are world-class ... not so for Thailand, India, Malaysia.

    A new thread is warranted if this discussion continues :D

    What are you guys talking about? I know Canada is great in human rights and such, but it is a bit too presumptuos to take the moral highground so casually.

    Malaysian women generally do not excel in sports in comparison to the men because they are simply not interested. Girls prefer to mug the books (the best students in the country consist more girls than boys). This trend is changing. We see more and more girls getting involved in sports.

    One of the best bowlers (ten-pin) in the world is a Malaysian Muslim woman. One of the most celebrated swimmers (ex-swimmer) is a Muslim woman.

    Non-Muslims consist of a significant 30 to 40 % in Malaysia, but we do not see any significant difference between the numbers of Muslim and non-Muslim sportswomen.
