Peter Gade ended 2011 without a win.
Actually he should have won the 2011 Copenhagen Masters when at 20-19 in the 2nd game, JOJ’s shuttle landed out but this was not called out; JOJ then went on to win the 2nd game 25-23. JOJ, being the younger player, was able to sustain better and won the rubber 22-20.The 1st game was won by PG 21-14.
“I should have won the game in 2 games but unfortunately I didn’t… we had a very tough match after that point. I can be frustrated after that point that got stolen away from me, but on the other hand, it was a great match and that’s what we both wanted.. But it was a great evening, a great Atmosphere and all credit goes to the crowd who made it a fantastic evening tonight”
The above situation again points to the need for a ‘hawkeye’ system and the sooner this is implemented the better for all.

It is a timely break in international competitions, says Denmark’s ace Peter Hoeg Gade
Peter Gade, who is currently number four in Men’s Singles world standings, has been playing tremendous badminton for the last 12 months. His hectic schedule affected his performance as he failed to deliver well in the opening two events of current year.
...Peter Gade said, “I think many of the players are feeling the strain as we are all trying to earn as many qualifying points as we can for the Olympics.”
He further added, “The break has come at a perfect time for me personally and also for the rest of the players. Sometimes you just need to go away and comeback stronger.”
He has also indicated that he will play in a few tournaments before Olympic Games in order to remain physically fit for the mega event, which will be his last tournament as he has decided to take retirement from international badminton.

On last lap, Gade wants to give it all
Jonathan Selvaraj : New Delhi, Tue Apr 24 2012, 00:23 hrs
As Peter Gade sweats it out at the Siri Fort courts on the eve of the India Open Super Series, there is nothing to suggest that the 35-year-old Dane is running the last lap of an over15-year-long career or that he is nursing a dodgy right ankle. Not the complaining kinds, the aging star has found a silver lining on the injury cloud as he sets a date to hang his boots.
“The injury is a recurring one. Before, I would try to manage my injuries. But knowing that I have only four more tournaments to go means I can skip surgery. In a way it gives me some freedom because I am not preserving my body for anything,” says the second seed, who plans to play just a couple of tournaments after the London Olympics in July-August.
Despite having a plan in place, things haven’t gone Gade’s way lately. The World No.4 was knocked out of the European Championships, where he had top billing. He later conceded a walkover at the Swiss Open and lost early at the All England Open.
“I haven’t been lucky but I have to admit that others have been playing better than me. At the European Championships, I was leading 18-10 in the final round. I lost from that position. Such things didn’t happen to me earlier but now it’s a bit more frequent,” he admits.
The All-England loss has hurt Gade the most. Scheduling gaffes meant he said his final goodbye to one of his favourite arena at 2.30 am with just the empty stands witnessing the emotional departure.
“It is one of the things that ensures that badminton won’t be like tennis. The All-England title was my first big win and I finished over there in front of an empty stand in the middle of the night. It was disappointing,” he says.
Gade’s decision to wind up his career soon after the Olympics, an event that has never seen him step on the podium, will coincide with a few more famous farewells. “These are interesting times. Even Lee Chong Wei and Taufik Hidayat have said that the London Olympics will be their final tournament and I don’t know how long Lin Dan will continue. In a very short span of time all the big guys will retire,” he says.
While it seems uncertain whether the stocks of badminton-playing countries — excluding, of course, China — can cope with the loss of these icons, Gade remains optimistic. “Our departure will give a chance to all the youngsters to come up. From Denmark I can see a good future for Viktor Axelsen and even India has some good players like Sourabh Verma,” he says.
Gade isn’t keen to be a national coach post-retirement. “One of the reasons I am retiring from the sport is because I have two young children and I want to spend more time with them. If I become a national coach I will have to travel. It will have to be something I will have to balance,” he says.
