Morten Frost Hansen vs. Peter Gade
Merry Christmas from Canada!
Just wondering, for you oldies (joking ) who know much more about Frost Hansen than I do, could you please share some light on how he would compare to Peter Gade or vice versa?

In brief, Frost plays the typical patient Danish rally style game, with an economical footwork and energy management. He hardly moves explosively on court, yet could still can be lethal. Has an excellent defence for players in his day, perhaps just a touch below the "diving defenders" Foo Koo Keong and Ardy Wiranata.
Gade, however, plays more of a Asian styled power and pace game, but with better footwork than practically all Asian players. Before Gade, only the late Svend Pri played almost similarly, but Pri was kinda short of staying power.

umm... staying power?

i think he means Sven Pri wasn't fit enough to play full out for a full 3 setter.

staying power, correct!
frost is a legend, a player whom all of you should admire for his staying power.
in his days actually he was like lcw, most of the time world number 1 but occasionally lost to a few players. he rallies a lot and any top player at that time would have a hard time beating him!
his greatest achievement was entering the indonesian final because at that time indonesian players were on top and the chinese was just catching up. forgot the year but i think he broke his own record when he entered final but lost to luan jin from china! think first time indonesian open no indon players!
to compare him with gade, frost is more consistent rally but still deadly player and gade as abdeng pointed out plays an asian styled power and pace game.

Both have been able to stay at the very top of the professional circuit for a very very long time in comparison to many asian players.
