Hi Thomas,

hope your training is going well for the Sudirman Cup.

Just to pose to slightly different question which I would find very interesting.

It has been mentioned on TV you actually took a break from badminton training in your late teens. Apparently, you practically stopped the game.

Can you tell us why?
What made you pick up the badminton racquet again?
When was it you realised you wanted to play professional?
What influenced you most at that particular point?
