Denmark’s Peter Hoeg Gade crushes Indonesia’s Simon Santoso in the Sudirman Cup – Badminton News
Denmark’s top seed, Peter Hoeg Gade, has crushed Indonesia’s Simon Santoso, in the mixed team event’s semi-final match in the Sudirman Cup 2011, in China, on Saturday, May 28.
Gade defeated the Indonesian in straight games, proving that he is still one of the top shuttlers in badminton.
Gade opened the game in an attacking fashion against the young Indonesian, who was playing a confused game. Simon could not play well in the starting half of the opening set, as he made many unforced errors which helped the Danish to create a gap of 11-7.
In the second part of the first game, Gade continued playing an attacking game and spared no chance for Simon to fight back in the set. The Indonesian matched the speed of Gade but it was too late, as the Danish shuttler finished the set with a decent margin
of 21-18.
In the second set, Gade became quicker at the net and his tumbling net strokes built pressure on Simon, who was struggling to pick the bird from all corners of the court. The anticipation of Gade was superb in all areas of the court, as he surprisingly earned
many points by executing pushing strokes from the tape of the net.
In the whole set, Gade remained ahead of Simon and left no space for him to score points. He won the set by a convincing difference of 21-16.
After winning the Men’s Singles fight, Gade said, “It was not an easy match as Simon fought for everything. I think he was a little nervous and I took advantage of that. I used my experience to find the openings. I wasn’t sure I was going to play as I’ve
been having some tough matches but I recovered very well and the coach picked me.”
While talking about the upcoming final match against China, Gade said, “It has been our dream from the start to meet China in the final. I would love to play Lin Dan in this beautiful stadium.”
Denmark will meet China for the second time in the final of Sudirman Cup. In 1999, China emerged as the winners by a one-sided margin of 3-0. However, this time Danish shuttlers are determined to win the title in this mixed team championship.
