PG still has one of the most lethal cross-court drops in the game.
He used to catch a Taufik out 12 years ago with his drops and his steep leaping, finishing smashes; he still does!
Some of his matches against Taufik are really unforgettable.
Its only very recently (like maybe the past 6-12 months) that his age has finally begun to catch up with him noticably. But that does not take away anything from his court-craft, or his understanding or reading of how the point develops. He is still up there with the very best.
Many other players have been aorund for 5-6 years, maybe more; they have drifted in and out of the top 10. This man has remained in the top 5 for longer than others have played pro, with very brief drops below, but never out of the top 10. Peter has maintained these exceedingly high standards for maybe 15 years! That in any sport, is an awesome achievement. In badminton, it is nothing short of inhuman.

Even Lin Dan contiues to salute PG in his latest interview by media, esp his fighting spirit:
佩服盖德，在乎坚持的意义 在男单的领奖台上，林丹身旁分别站着李宗伟和盖德。半决赛，林丹先失一局后逆转盖德进入决赛。这场失利 ，将丹麦老将最后一次问鼎世界冠军的希望打碎。75分钟的比赛，几乎超出了盖德的极限，赛后接受采访时，他 一直呼哧呼哧地喘个不停。
盖德是林丹最敬佩的运动员，“我觉得他现在真的是在享受羽毛球。三、四年前跟他交手时，我能隐约感觉到 ，他每一次都在争胜，不太承认另一个时代的中国运动员要超过他。现在，他承认自己的精力状态不能和10年前 鼎盛时期相比，但他依然想尽一切办法去战胜林丹、李宗伟、陶菲克。每当他获胜时，他都非常开心。这种心态让 他坚持到了35岁，甚至将来坚持更长的时间。”
林丹希望自己也能像盖德一样，为更多的中国运动员树立榜样，这也是林丹在夺得奥运会冠军后依旧坚持的重 要原因。“盖德能够打到35岁，你就能看到希望。如果林丹能打到35岁，可能更多的中国年轻运动员就可以像 林丹一样，打的时间更长。”
盖德能够坚持到现在，林丹也承认，中国与丹麦的环境并不相同。“丹麦的压力不是特别大，参赛是因为他喜 欢，这样很轻松。相比之下，国内的运动员更加辛苦。一、两次甚至半年的状态不好，这本来是很正常的事情，可 是媒体和外界就会让一个很简单的事情变得很复杂。中国运动员很早就退役，就是因为有太大的压力 。”

i'm so excited to see his match.
he was 35 but his play is so smart.
his power is worst around world top 10 but he forced his opponent to play a long rally and forced his opponent to make a mistake.
his figthing spirit is still high.
i think he can stay in world top 5 but is too hard to beat LCW, LD, CL, and CJ.

peter's performance is consistent (final india open, semifinal indonesia open, semifinal WC, semifinal china master) if his performance still consistent like this min. he will stay at toup 5.
i think it's too hard to win japan open for peter because LCW, LD, CL will participate too.

PHG at two months short of 35 years of age played very, very well in his SF match against LCW in the 2011 Yonex Denmark Open losing out 19-21, 21-23.
Indeed in the 2nd game, PHG clawed back from 12-14 to 14-14, and went into the lead from 15-14 to game point at 20-17 and another game point at 21-20.
However, he just couldn’t convert and LCW had the composure and calmness in a crisis to level at 21 all and then won the next 2 points to win at 23-21.
It was a difficult match for LCW and PHG got a standing ovation from the crowd.
I salute PHG for an outstanding performance in perhaps his last match in Denmark and he gave his best.
What a great sportsman and a great ambassador for badminton.

“I’m really disappointed that I couldn’t finish off this second set. I am just angry at myself right now. But in a way, I showed also that I was very close to him. I can take some things from this match for future matches” said Gade.

PHG (S4) bowed out in the 2nd round of the Yonex Badminton French Open 2011when he lost in 3 games 19-21, 21-19, 17-21 to the unseeded Hu Yun of Hong Kong in 1hour and 10 minutes.This is one of his earliest exits in a SS tournament and it could be a sign that he has played too much in too many countries of different time zones and it is not easy for a body 2 months short of 35 years of age.However, compared with TH, PHG has done better as TH has been losing very early in many tournaments.

It was probably an energy-sapping experience at the Denmark Open for Peter just last week. Playing his heart out in front of his home crowd. I think he just ran out of gas here at the FO. The DO and FO are always too immediate in the SS schedule. I'm sure he will come back strongly if he gets some time off for R&R.
