Denmark’s pride Peter Gade has won back to back Super Series titles by defeating Taufik Hidayat at the French Open Super Series. Peter lost the first game 16-21, fought back to win the second 21-17 and then crushed Taufik in the third game 21-7. I had written Gade off over the last few months stating that he was only going to start going downhill from here on out, but it looks like he has more left to prove to the badminton world. The only players of note that were not at this event were Lin Dan and Bao Chunlai. Gade destroyed Chen Jin in the earlier rounds. It will be a while before the next Super Series event, and you can bet I’ll be paying close attention to what happens at that event.
(Not the final, but a match with Peter from last year against Kendrick Lee)
