    it's could be Gade's strategy to avoid playing Chen Jin before the WC

    I might know why you don't like Chen Jin. Because you are Jessica! Chen Jin doesn't look as attractive as BCL. That's the reason for you.

    But unfortunately, win of loss doesn't depend on how people look. BCL is tall, and has very high level of skills, but he is weak mentally. He is not a guy fit to competitions. While Chen Jin is different, he's well determined, and tough mentally. He is not that easy to surrender that makes his opponents scared of.

    of course he doesnt withdraw do to being afraid of an opponent or cause of strategy. All that loosing/withdrawing etc etc proffesionals dont do that. They love their sport so high that they want to win every single match, perhaps only in China where the coaches and the country decides such things happen. But surely not in Denmark and for PG. This injury can be serious since it was that knee which took him out for 1 year.

    He might have lost interest since there is no chance to meet LCW and LD anymore.....

    That is bad if he pulls out. Anyway i hope he can recover before the WC.
    I don't think Peter is scared of Chen Jin. Chen Jin is just a player and nothing else.

    Chen Jin is the player who beat Gade 3 times at 6* tournament final, 5* Denmark open at Gade's home court, and 4* Malaysia open just last month! respectively.

    Is there any other "nothing else" completed the same?:D :D :D

    Some noticable "nothing else"s:

    Lin Dan bt Gade: 7:2
    Lee CW bt Gade: 2:0
    Bao CL tie Gade: 2:2
    Taufic tie Gade: 4:4

    Gade doesn't have any edge at all, same level as BCL and Taufic, but not as good as Chen Jin, Lin Dan and Lee CW.

    No wonder why Lin Dan is the number 1, and Lee CW is the number 2! Chen Jin has the potential to rush into the top 3.

    This is not right. PG beat LCW in TC this year.

    again, it's a very biased statement that Peter Gade doesn't have any edge at all. I would still think that any of the top 5 players are capable of beating each other on their day.

    and you say that Taufik is not in the same level as Lin Dan or LCW. :eek: Taufik can kick anybody's butt any time if he wishes to. :rolleyes:

    I just got all those statistics from official IBF head 2 head pages. You should let them correct it if they are wrong.

    BTW, I think you are right, you refresh my memory, but I have no other data than the official IBF data. What can I do?

    That's the key to make statement with no sense. Any one can claim they lost because he or she didn't want to win :D

    On the other hand, I think if any player made that statement, it would have no moral and sportsmanship. It would be a insult to all the other players and insult to audience and organizers too. More, it also indicates that he is an opportunist who can do nothing except waiting for luck and easy draw.

    Actually, I like PG a lot. He's smart, and knows things a little bit better than other people. He's extremely good at dealing with regular players, but I don't think he's confident enough to be ready to play Lin Dan and Chen Jin yet.

    I don't think Peter will have the same mentalily as being scared. He dare to face his challenger and since Chen Jin beat him few times, doesnt mean that Peter is scared of him. Lindan also beat PG many times.. but PG look foward to face LinDan anytime and and talking about confidence we must also give PG credit for beating Lindan at his home ground during China Masters. So it will not make any difference facing ChenJin anywhere either.

    Ya i agree on that. PG might sometimes lose to LD and CJ (well, in fact always..), but i dont think he is fear of anyone. He is the one of the player that i really respected and hope the injury is not too serious.... the WC is near man...:(

    Actually, at first, I said it's PG's strategy, which is totally different from scared or lack of confidence. Maybe PG has developed a new way to beat CJ, but want to hide until WC, maybe PG just want to save some energy, or avoid be injured. Who knows? Or to protect his knee. But I knew he can still fight now. Like Xie Xinfang, she's injured right now, but she said she can still play WITH her injury to beat most players at Thai open.

    Then it was Jessica who introduced the word "scary", then we all followed her way of thinking....:eek: :eek: :eek:
