Up and coming european players....
Well....since european players are much less talked about than the asians....just wanna open up this thread for discussing the progress and news of the european badminton world....as we all know badminton is pretty much dominated by the asians.....we can only hope that in the future more european countries will produce new and good badminton players that will be able to match the asians....so far....the russians seem to be on the right track to become a new force in badminton....and I realise that this junior MS player from portugal of all places called pedro martins might be on the right track to become the future top european player...he was the runner up at both the dutch and german juniors I think....losing to more fancied malaysian opponents in the finals going down in 3 games...impressive....

Kasper Lehikoinen should be focused in the future.
He is very talented too.
Maybe he will get a good position in world ranking 10-20...

Matthias Borg of Sweden is also a very good player along with Jamie Van Hoonjidonk of Wales - JVD and also Pedro Martins are both in the EPOF (SOTX)

and EPOF is? do u think that these few players....matthias borg, JVD or pedro martins will make it big in the future?

From a tournament i was at MB and JVD were in the final, it was quite close i believe and a 3 game match. MB won but both players looked very promising. However as Limsy said PM is unbeaten in the Europe team championship and is doing very well in tournaments - my bet is if anyone was to make it big it would be him. MB seems to "have his days" but I believe I read on this forum that in the European Junior Championships he didn;t play a particularly brilliant game.
Lianne Tan (Female) of Belgium also looks like she can compete with some good players
