    well, he is WJC, at the age if 16 so it is only right that he gets his own thread.
    Peter Gades successor is now almost ready to take the kings place.
    Feel free to share opinions about him

    Lars and Thomas are doubles players, I bet this youngster can beat 'em in single.
    About you, I checked your profile, you're the school champion. Unless Viktor Axelsen is in your school I believe he's better than you :D

    He has a bit of attitude right (the yellow card!)?

    Looking forward to seeing him play very soon....hope he can break through on senior level.

    What is his playing style like? Fast and powerful or skillful & tactical?

    From the few clips I've seen I would say skillfull & tactical. There's a couple on YouTube for instance these two from the (senior) Swedish International 2010 Final:
    1.set http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7TILYPnLn8
    2.set http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HjDTwxfzmrs&feature=related
    Title should be vs Indra Bagus Ade Chandra for both ...

    Here's one from the EJC U17 Final (hadn't seen it before):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxZM3PMQm_o

    Another one against Jan Jorgensen at the national championships 2010: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1tpfsE1HHQ

    Mmm, not very prety to watch in those videos. I don't like the way he holds & flicks his shots. I think his footwork needs some wok too, he is not so agile.

    But then again he is only 16 & is tall. We will see!

    Yup tall & agile would be a rare combo. Read he will be entering some more senior euro tournaments so we might be able to see some more footage.
    And before we get the question: HEAD Power Helix 8000 (medium flex, 285bp) + SHB-91M.
