    He is already rusty. last time he could even whack it to the baseline from that corner.

    I don't get the LD haters over here. This shows what a big man LD is.

    Wonderful gesture from Lin Dan to be part of Peter's last match! :)

    Anyone else think Lin Dan's footwork was very poor by his incredibly high standards?

    Definitely hasn't been training that much...

    Though it is called Peter Gade's Farewell Match, the emphasis should be on the 'Farewell' rather than the 'Match' or competition part.

    The fact that Peter personally (as shown on the video clip in PG's thread,thanks to george@chongwei)extended the invitation only to Lin Dan spoke volumes.Yesterday, the special event is proof how highly they regarded each other.

    The match outcome isn't important. The star of the show is Peter Gade. And Lin Dan also played his part well, observing propriety, doing what is right and proper, without stealing the limelight.

    Objectively speaking, yes, Lin Dan is out of practice, quite rusty,making many unforced errors uncharacteristic of him. But frankly, the match outcome wasn't unexpected - even if Lin Dan isn't off form, don't expect him to go all out to beat Peter on the latter's special day.

    I only expected Lin Dan to test himself for a game and a half at most but at the same time he cannot play too badly as that would be disrespectful to Peter. In the latter half of G1, after trailing far behind from a bad start, he pulled himself up and displayed glimpses of brilliance to level the score before winning the deuce.

    I think from G1 alone, Lin Dan should be able to gauge where he stands now and how much work he needs to put in to get back to top form.

    Why are you so affected by it('lmao'?), what's your problem? Where's the contradiction or discrepancy?

    What I said of Lin Dan in G1 was from his angle wrt his present form and what I wrote later about the match as a whole was in consideration of its purpose and Lin Dan's role in honouring his good friend in reciprocation. Note, I stop commenting on the match proceedings from the middle of G2 onwards as I wasn't concerned about the entire match outcome.

    Wow, Hu Yun, the veteran late bloomer , beats young Viktor Axelsen - they are a generation apart in badminton terms.

    It has only just occurred to me there that Mads Pieler Kolding is playing instead of Matthias Boe...

    Oh yeah, Boe replaced by Mads Kolding, didn't notice it earlier. Hmm, even if it's an invitational tournament, they can simply replace one of the two players in the doubles pair just like that? Strange.
