    Default As I said

    LD's stamina is not as good as when he was 21. Haha.

    It's all relative. Every player's stamina generally decreases with age. Some decrease more and quicker than others. All things being equal, LD still rules because his stamina/skills have eroded less than his competitors'. Being supremely talented doesn't hurt either

    My impression is, LD somehow learned how to "concentrate" his stamina into the few tournaments he plays.

    Also, for those who are saying LD in 2004 cannot be as dominant if he is put in today's MS circuit, remember that, in 2004, LD would not pull out under such situation. That's part of the reason why LD seemed more vulnerable then.

    In 2004 there was 3x15 scoring thus placing higher demand on stamina :-)
    Even if a decrease in LDs stamina has taken place (which I think is unlikely due to the training effort of LD) it has been more than well compansated by todays shorter games due to the rally scoring..

    I don't think "training effort" can keep you young.

    From a Physical standpoint LD is not "old"... Just an example.. 2004 Lance Armstrong peaked in Tour de france winning by a huge margin.. He was 33 years old at that point, and EXTREME stamina...

    Lin Dan is only 26 and hardly "over the hill"...

    Peter Gade is 32, btw..

    He should be getting better advice from his handlers but because he is one of Yonex's poster boys, he is obligated to play in major Yonex sponsored tournaments. Look carefully at the fine print in his megabucks Yonex contract...
