    Default Peter Rasmussen ends his career..

    Danish media reports today that Peter Rasmussen has ended his career. As most will know he has ben suffering with a lot of injuries, but he has been fighting to return... and apparently only last year he was approaching the way of playing which made him world champion.. but then he was injured again.. and now he has given up..

    Peter.. good bye.. thank you.. and good luck..

    It's really sad that his career had to end like this.
    I had hoped, that he would recover at least to celebrate one more big title.
    Who has seen him playing in my alltime favourite match (WCH 97 vs. Sun Jun), knows at what incredible level he was able to play.
    He really would have deserved to quit with one more big bang, sniff.

    I feel sorry for him too. Both Gade and him were having so many injuries. I think the Danish national team needs to find someone to look at their Feng Shui.

    Wonder if their training style is not in sync with their physique?

    Farewell Peter Rasmussen. Anyone can post a brief bio, and pic?

    yes, PR had left behind some very memorable matches that i have watched:

    97WCH and the recent thomas cup.

    This is another GREAT player retiring

    Well, congrats to Peter for his great achievements, despite being injured so long and often.

    There is now only ONE MS World Champion in activity (XXZ), and for how long?...

    Profile (in Danish)

    Interview with PR about his decision to stop (in Danish)
    http://www.badminton.dk/default.asp?pageid=2249


    I've translated a few quotes from the interview to the best of my ability:
    "I've had fantastic expiriences with badminton and I quit with my head held high. Others may think my career riddled with injuries but I have a different view. For me 90 percent of my career has been positive. You have to accept that when you're reaching for the extreme then there will be difficulties and disappointments."
    ...
    "I've always trained hard - maybe too hard, but it's been worth it. Badminton has given me a lot. I've said it this way: Badminton is life and life is badminton."


    Farewell Peter and thanks for everything!

    Unhappy A great loss

    This is such sad and depressing news. Peter Rasmussen is one of my all-time favourite MS players. Plagued by injuries, he could not always live up to his potential, but when he did he was absolutely fantastic to watch. Such fluid movement around court, amazing jump smashes and sharp net play. The 1997 WC semi against Haryanto Arbi is one example, and to some extent also the legendary final against Sun Jun.

    It appears that his dynamic playing style took its toll.

    His career ends with a retired US Open final, but for me his last great match will be the 3rd singles in the Thomas Cup semi against Indonesia, where he convincingly beat Simon Santoso and won the tie for Denmark.

    I read that Peter is now going to complete his medical studies. It's comforting to know that he will have a career after badminton. I wish him the best of luck with his new life.

    It was his picture at my desktop saying to me good morning every time I switch on my computer in the morning.

    His dynamics is absolutely amazing (as well as Raphael's eye).

    We will miss you.

    regards

    Odd timing since Carlton have just released new versions of the "Rasmussen" rackets
