    In a post match interview Gade said his right knee was hurting :(
    Just hope it will hold up through this tournament, then it can get some rest untill China Open which is the next tournament Peter Gade is competing in (no German Open for him).

    Peter Rasmussen beat Hendrawan 15-11, 7-15, 15-8 in a match with a lot of errors. The result was somewhat predictable considering Hendrawans recent form, but anyway it's not everyday you se two worldchampions facing each other :)

    As for Luo Xilin I know he is playing for Esbjerg in the Danish 2nd division. A great victory for him, no doubt.

    Correction to modious

    I think Ong Ewe Hock was leading 10-0 before he got injured, I know that because I was following it, otherwise it is the online scoring that gone wacko. Please get it right next time.

    Go Hashim Go

    What happened! Hashim finally got a noticeable victory especially against Gade. I really feel sorry for Gade since he is one my favorite player.

    Did Hashim really played that good or he just got lucky? It looks that Gade might be injured? It is hard to swallow. I was not expecting this.

    I thought that old (#1) Hashim is long gone. Recent participation in major tournaments by him simply reflects that he is not facing the truth same as Hendrawan that their better days are gone. I hope that both prove me wrong as both were real good players.

    Will appreciate comments from people who watched this game.

    Well I didn't watch the match but I've read a few match reports and it seems Gade just ran out of steam...
    A combination of playing 6 matches in 3 days and not being 100% fit after his long injury.

    Wow, the Thai guy beat Agus H.

    And the Thai pair beat Paaske and Rasmussen after a tough 3rd set.

    No disrespect to the Thais but I haven't got quite used to theirs names yet.

    If the Thai team start putting out consistent results, could we see the emergence of another badminton nation?

    Yes. Plus don't forget who is the current IBF president.

    This Thai pair of Patapol Ngernsrisuk/Sudket Prapakamol is I believe a scratch pair. The Asian Games XD silver medallist Khunakorn Sudhisodhi used to partner Patapol, but recently he plays with Sudket instead. It seems like Khunakorn isn't in the Danish Open because together with Pramote Teerawiwatana/Tesana Panvisvas, they're doing some promotion and also preparing for the upcoming Asian Badminton Championships held in Thailand.

    Hmm, Khunakorn is already 28 yrs old, quite old for a player. These 2 players are only 22! If the coaches decide to keep this combination, we may just see a lot more from them in the future. ;)

    Who's playing exactly?

    Hmm, it's weird that the draw states Patapol Ngernsrisuk and Sudket Prapakamol when the live scoring says Patapol Ngernsrisuk and Khunakorn Sudhisodhi!! :confused:

    But looking at the 2 thai pairs playing in the XD, I believe what's stated in the draw should be correct. :confused:
