Was living in London in '74-75, so I got to see the All-England finals live.
As for Jorgensen's power (or rather lack of it), part could be due to the slow shuttles, and the lack of deception. Even on full power, Gade, TH, LCW and LD do use deception so that opponents cannot guess which way the shuttle will be going until it's too late.
Anyway, with more experience, Jorgensen will learn the art of war.

Jorgensen was fortunate in beating an injured CJ. It was a match that almost got away from him. But maybe now that he has reached his first major final, the jitters will go away and he can perform at peak potential. This year, he's already qualified in 3 SS semifinals (including China Open final), there should be no reason for not being able to perform normally at the latter stages.

From what I seen , this lad is a very good player. One for the future

danish players tend to play longer than asian players so JOJ should have many more years to improve. Biggest advantage of JOJ is his reach. If he continue to make improvement on other area, he would be an A player for sure. For now, any other players would be happy to in the final with LD. To be beaten by LD is not a shame Even JP had improved since he played LD.

In the final Jorgensen:
1. smashed into the forehand side very predictably. You could almost see LD go for the block before the smash was fully executed.
2. served high to Lin Dan! Full points for courage on that one.

When u serve high or play lobbing shots to Lin dan , u re looking for trouble, Jorgensen got to play more like Peter gade , with more stroke play and attacking badminton.

Please everyone stop comparing JOJ with other baddy players his age - especially the Asian ones!
European players do take more time to get bigger and to mature on court. when you compare JOJ to PG when PG was his age, it was a bit of a different time. And PG has always been great at adapting to the play that was before him.
i do agree that JOJ needs more "coolness" and needs to be thinking more on-court, but these things will come when he get more experience.
Im not saying that JOJ will definetly be the next great European player, however, i am saying that he has got the potential!
