    After this Olympics, I guess many European players will retire. And I mean, many of them are those whose names I often see in many SS tournaments. Especially Denmark players.
    DEN MD uncles, Peter Gade, and Kenneth. They're all above 30 already.
    Sad indeed.

    yea lots of top denmark players are hitting their 30's or above.
    Tine should have partnered doubles with Camilla before she retired.
    They could have been a good pair!
    But anyway, Denmark need to 'polish' some new youngters.

    Well, the only young Dane shuttlers I know are... Boe/Mogensen, Jan O. Jorgensen, Rune Ulsing, and... I forget the rests.

    Sigh, why doesn't Roman Abramovich invest more to Russian badminton?

    Agree Wacha is a good player but he is not the future of eurpore. He is getting old. If I am not mistaken he is 28 years old. The future of eurpoe must be coming from the young talents that Peter Gade is training now. May be they have not make their name. But soon they will rise. I hope to see more young talents come form more european countries like UK, the Netherland, German and france. It will be good for the sport in the long term.

    Badminton Europe's future needs more funding! Especially for prize money in tournaments and training + travelling funds... Without enough money [Euros] not enough young people want to choose Badminton as their career occupation of choice...

    Forget the government support. They are hopeless! Get the private sector to be involved. A possible jump-start can be: involving the Euro billionarres.... imagine:
    Roman Abramnovich investing in Russian Badminton
    Richard Branson [Virgin Record owner] investing in English Badminton
    Kjeld Kristiansen [Lego owner] investing more in Denmark Badminton
    Ingvar Kamprad [IKEA owner] investing more in Swedish Badminton
    etc.

    mateusiak is quite old already....yea he is good but seems to fall short on achievements because of not so good partners....surprisingly enough he has one of the best records against the chinese pair of He/Yu...

    Yes getting the private sectors to sponsor badminton is a must. Really hope Europe badminton will do well in years to come. That way the sport will flourish and all of us will have more fun. Whoa If what is say become a truth I want to join them! But I am waaaay too old!

    absolutely, badminton needs offer high prize money so people will actually start to take notice, i mean look at sports like tennis or golf, prize money can reach as high as million dollars.
    as much as i would like the rich bastards above to sponsor/invest in badminton, i just dont see a chance of that happening at all >.<
    speaking of prize money, which tournament offers the highest prize money? the All England Open?

    Well this sounds good
    What's more worrisome for Europeans is that most of the real competitors from the Europe are over 30, including 31-year-old Peter Gade from Denmark in men's singles, 38-year-old Jen Eriksen from Denmark in men's doubles, 31-year-old Gail Emms from Britain in mixed doubles, who all announced their impending retirement in one or two years.
    On the contrary, men's singles champion Lin Dan from China, men's doubles champions Markis Kido and Hendra Setiawan from Indonesia are still at their prime age, while women's doubles champions Du Jing and Yu Yang from China, mixed doubles champion Lee Yong-dae from South Korea are just up-and-coming, and set to dominate their respective events for a couple of years.
    It is encouraging that some players from other European countries are fledging on the support of the three training centers sponsored by the BWF, among whom Olga Konon from Belarus and Kestutis Navickas from Lithuania had drastically increased their world rankings after the training, and reached the round of 16 in women's singles and men's singles surprisingly.
    The BWF is considering more investment on a four-year training program, hosting a two-week-long camp four times a year for athletes from developing and less developed countries to obtain a high level training, According to Roger Johansson, Development Committee Chairman of the BWF.
    "This time we have brought players from 50 NOCs, and the next goal is medals in London," said Johansson, hoping that the players trained at the centers could make some breakthrough at the next Olympics.
