On a sidenote, Gade will retire/stop playing in the Danish League next season to solely focus on London 2012 and the qualifying period ...

I salute the 34-year old PHG for stretching LCW, world number1, to three games in the 2011 Yonex-Sunrise India Open Superseries MSF match 21-12, 12-21, 21-15 in 62 minutes.
I had expected an easy win for LCW with a lopsided score but PHG proved me wrong.
Congratulations to PHG for a very good outing and without a coach at that.

I watched the LCW - PG game last night and it looks like there was a bit of over confidence there in LCW's game, in the second set. He almost looked bored, but got back into stride in the third game where his attacks were more ferocious. Kudos to PG for entertaining the fans with his court genius and signature drop shots. He's a great ambassador for badminton and will be missed when he retires.

QINGDAO, May 28 (Xinhua) -- World number five Peter Gade from Denmark said here on Saturday that he will retire after the 2012 London Olympic Games.
Gade made the remarks after beatng Simon Santoso of Indonesia in the semifinal of the Sudirman Cup with 2-0.
"I feel tired today because I played all three matches to win counterpart from Chinese Taipei yesterday evening, but I managed to win on my experiences," the 35-year-old Gade said.
Gade won all four men's singles matches for Denmark.
"With one more point, we will meet China at the final in Sunday evening and it is a game I have dreamed of," Gade said. "And I will do my best to compete with Lin Dan at his home field."
"This is sure to be the last time that I play on the court of the Sudirman Cup, and I will retire after the 2012 London Olympics," he said.
Gade said he would like to become a professional badminton coach after the retirement and to take care of his family, especially his two daughters.
"I really missed my daughters these days and I am always wondering what they are doing at home." he said.
Starting to learn badminton when he was six, Peter Gade was ranked as world number one from 1998 to 2001 and won five European champions.

This is one guy who is so totally committed to giving his best every time he steps on court, and even away. IMO the only other with the same work ethic is LCW. A lot of players in the top-25 can learn attitude and commitment from him.

Why Peter Gade is still a force to reckon with
I just wanted to share this beautiful article that I came upon. You can read the full article by an ex national champ, at this link:
Here is an excerpt:
"He should be known as Peter Great. His official website states that some like him for his looks, some for his character, some for his style of play. But one thing is for sure: Peter Gade is definitely a role model for his fans or fellow players and the large majority of people around the world of badminton."
