Jan has talent
Im from Denmark and even though i would like him to be the next Peter Gade, I dont think he can be it. Peter Gade has had an amazing carreer. and to put a young unexperienced Jan O Jorgensen up against the carreer of Peter Gade is a little unfair.
In Denmark we often speak about Jan overtaking Peter Gades title as Denmarks best singles player. But With so many great players in the Badminton world today, i dont think that Jan can be number one, i hope it off all my red and white heart.

I think JOJ has the right mental make up to compensate for his other shortcomings. He comes across as a player no one wants in the draw because he's able to find ways to win. If he keeps working on the technical side of his game, I think he could be in the top 5 in 2 years.

Jorgensen a threat to my reign, says Chong Wei
“To me, the Dane was very impressive last year. He gave most of the top players a run for their money. I am sure he will mount a stronger challenge this year,” said Chong Wei.
“Usually, it will be the same old faces trying to share the spoils. Hopefully, more players like Jorgensen will rise up. This will certainly make the world of badminton more challenging and interesting,” he said
i had watch the match between joj and simon
he only lack a few more things(better defence+ better stratergy) to be a top 3 player in future
will watch him against dicky (in copenhagen master)as soon as i can

thats the correct way to groom player
1st,strengthen ur basic and foundational in every aspect of ur game
2nd,get enough experience on court
the asociation of denmark get it all correct!
they had strengthen the basic and foundational in every aspect of joj before 2009
then they send joj all over the world to get enough experience
joj had played 20 tournament this year
8 super series,2 invitation(copenhagen master and ss master final),2 bwf event(wc and sudirman cup),1 gp gold,2 gp,3 international challenge,1 domestic circuit league and 1 european mixed team championship
he had won the swedish ic and bitburger open this year
remain unbeaten in both european mixed team championship
he played 57 matches with a total duration of 2187 minutes
thats enable a player to polish up their game,tactic and skill with that kind of amont of duration against some top player like lindan,lee chong wei,peter gade,taufik,simon santoso,chen jin
and now we can see how much joj had improved since the 1st week of 2009
the denmark asociation didnt ask for result at the 1st place
they understand that no one can suddenly burst into the screen and start to win directly at such young age(i only know koo/tan,lee yong dae and taufik can)
and they keep sending joj all over the place despite no much good result at the 1st half of the year.
12 tournament in european and 8 at asia
i believe their fund is alot less than bam
thats the different of sight from the decider of the asociation lead to a different result
thats funny that when we see,arif is just 19 at that time and keep playing in 10++ tournament in 2008 then keep on losing,then suffer some big blow to his confident,see what he end up now
a big clap for badminton asociation of denmark
u earn my respect

O! What an amazing feeling for Jorgensen
Here is a Danish player who got promoted not too long ago from the junior to the senior team and has demonstrated the good qualities of being a future rising star. Hope he can continue his good work and inspire especially European players that they can challenge Asia in the international arena.

AS a junior shuttler, Denmark’s Jan O Jorgensen used to watch in awe the captivating moves of Indonesian Taufik Hidayat on the court.
So, how did it feel to actually beat his idol for the first time – in the first round of the Malaysian Open – on Wednesday?
Jorgensen: "It was quite fun to beat him (Taufik) here.'
“It was an amazing feeling,” said the 22-year-old Dane, who won 7-21, 21-19, 21-17.
The win has given him a huge dose of confidence as he seeks to reach greater heights this year.
Taufik is just one of the many big names to have fallen to Jorgensen over the last year. His other big scalps included that of his more illustrious compatriot Peter-Gade Christensen, China’s Chen Jin and Malaysia’s Lee Chong Wei.
“Peter and Taufik are my idols. I like Taufik’s style of play and I always makes it a point to watch his game. It was quite fun to beat him here. It was amazing,” said Jorgensen.
The transition from being a talented junior to the senior level, however, was not an easy one for the Dane.
But, like he said, he had the self-belief to make it happen.
“There have been small breakthroughs before the World Champion-ships last year. I defeated Chen Jin at the Singapore Open. That got me thinking that I had a chance to make it happen,” said Jorgensen.
“Then, I reached the quarter-finals of the world meet. I lost to Taufik but it was a close affair. All these were good things for me. I began to believe in myself. I believe in training ... it is so important to give that commitment (under coach Kenneth Jonasen).
“At home, I try to learn from Peter about being professional in training. He is so devoted and takes his training seriously.”
With his desire to improve, Jorgensen reached his first final in the China Open and ended the year with the Copenhagen Masters title.
“I always play in good spirit and am always fighting no matter what the situation. This explains how I could come back from a demoralising 7-21 defeat in the first game to Taufik,” said Jorgensen.
With his steady rise, Jorgensen hopes to be a new threat in the world of badminton, which has been dominated by the likes of Lin Dan, Chong Wei, Peter, Taufik, Chen Jin and Bao Chunlai for some time.
“In future, I hope to be the best from Europe to challenge the Asian shuttlers. This year, I hope to win my first Open title and give Denmark a big lift in the Thomas Cup Finals,” added Jorgensen.

Apparently JOJ lost to NTM in quarter finals of MAS Open,to be honest didn't see that coming nor expected that.Probably JOJ not familiar with NTM style of play yet.I'm sure it will be a different ball game when they meet again.I will be watching with relish at the All England 2010 as I'll be going for the semifinals.Praying Lee Chong Wei makes it to semifinals as I'm from Malaysia.Not going to be easy for him at all as SDK,Simon and Lin Dan will be joining.I am sure many players would have analyzed LCW's game at KO and MAS Open.I am hoping Lee Chong Wei will turn the tables on Lin Dan this time.Really tired of seeing Lin Dan winning already.
