    Lin Dan is deffie gonna win. No doubt about it. Gade is good but i've seen him play 1st hand against Lin Dan. though he might be more skilled and experienced, his age means the lack in speed and potential in comparison to the younger players.
    Lin dan is definitely a favourite to win the Olympics.

    I dont agree with you. I think Gade is the only one who can keep up with the tempo that Lin Dan puts in the match. But I would also say that Lin Dan is the favourite for Japan open, but if Gade plays his best I dont think anyone at the moment can beat him not even Lin Dan.

    Look for Taufik to win either the Korean/Japan open...

    In my opinion the most talented player in the world and the dark horse for these two tournaments. His form has slowly been improving (building to the olympics?) so I'd expect him to win a couple of tournaments before Athens to boost his raking.

    This is the kind of response that is not suitable when it comes to showing support to your favourite player. Please refrain from making childish remarks at the expense of others just because others do not agree with you.

    I am sure Peter himself would balk if he knows how how one of his fans is acting in such manner just to support him.

    Badminton is supposed to foster goodwill and healthy competition, not to be degraded into a mud-slinging contest amongst set of fans who cannot agree with one another.

    Peter is a model gentleman off the court. Are you?

    i agree with wilfredlgf. BF is about respecting each other, and that include respecting each other's like and dislike of players. it is ok to disagree in a respectful way, but calling ppl name is definitely not one of them.

    i hope everybody will pay attention to that from now on.

    I think you have missed the point of what Wilfred has said by a million miles.

    Or perhaps we are missing your point?

    I like to be fair - could you explain how a badminton match and you having won some tournaments relate to the point that wilfred made? Thanks.

    Sure, call it a joke, but how exactly do you think da ding will know that? Many of us don't - me for one and kwun. That's the danger of posting on the net where people cannot see whether you're serious or not. Still, even if you were actually joking by adding an emoticon there, people may still get offended.

    What Cheung and kwun had advised is discretion in your posts. Reread what you type before clicking 'Submit Reply' to see if people would understand what you really intend to say.

    Sometimes all that is required is a missing word or emoticon and that's it, hate replies. And when this happens, it becomes... sad. ;)

    Either way, let's hope it don't happen again. :)

    -End-

    Gade sure is playing very well, but Lin Dan won fair and square at AE. I don't think we should take the glory away from Lin Dan by saying that Gade wasn't at his best, even if he isn't. On that court, on that day, Lin Dan was a superior player. Gade does not have a 'divine right' to win championships. ;)

    I'd still say Gade should make it to the semis.

    I agree about the emoticon part, if you want to joke, use emoticons for people to understand you are joking! Such as :p or ;) for instance! :)

    About Gade not being at his best, I don't know whether he will ever be as sharp physically as he used to (can't do anything against age), but he probably is stronger mentally now that he is older...
    But I think Taufik has a lot more room for improvement as watching his semi against Peter Gade, it clearly shows that he has been lacking physical training recently, and I find it is still extraordinary that he could reach the semis of the All England even so!!

    Korea and Japan Open will be very interesting indeed! :D
