    Nothing seems to be going for him atm. Perhaps a change in playing style is what he needs?

    He cannot go to a WTS1000 and expect to make good progress when in a comeback stage. 21-10 21-5 loss to CL is not helpfull. He needs to play WTS 100 and 300 to gradually try to improove.

    I remember when I first got into watching competitive badminton back in 2016, Jorgensen was consistently world #2 for months on end until he just sort of fell off the world stage until recently and now he's back he doesn't seem to be playing as I remember, what happened to him?

    A recurring heel injury and then he got a protected ranking, but failed to regain back his former form with a multitude of R1 and R2 exits, and now, we’re here today...

    Does anyone know why Jorgensen withdrew from CHN-open? Injury? Or trying to emulate the JPN-open success by withdrawing again from the first of two consecutive tournaments?

    he told afterward that he got injured at the start of the match, he even asked to referee if he was allowed to redraw, but because both of them is from Denmark, he would get a penalty if he stopped the match.

    i haven't heard the result(not sure if they have been
    published yet), but he was going to get the back scanned this Monday.

    he is stopping at the national elite center, and is gonna stop playing the biggest tournaments after Denmark Open.

    from what i understand, he i going to continue playing in the Danish League, and maybe play a few minor tournament. but this is a retirement from badminton on the highest level.

    EDIT: haven't add sources as all of them is in danish, but if needed feel free to ask.

    Thanks, it's okay. It wouldn't be necessary

    BWF have to start re-thinking about their tournament system
    Seems like the priority kinda shifted between athletes

    In case any of you would be interested, I interview Jan in the newest episode of my podcast.

    He reveals why he actually hates that epic 108-shot rally against Tien Minh Nguyen at the World Championships in 2013! (Check it out on YouTube here) :eek:

    We discuss Jan's recent decision to call an end to his international career later this year, but we talk even more about all of his big and historic wins over the past 10 years.

    We also go into what Jan was maybe missing to be winning even more titles and how his game and playing style has evolved a lot throughout his career - and who he sees as his toughest opponent ever!

    Jan also shares several fun stories from his many years on the tour and he finally reveals which of all the hairstyles he has had, is his favourite one! :D
