SUPER SERIES MASTERS FINALS
LIUZHOU, CHINA (DEC 14-18)
A graphic sketch of Denmark’s Peter-Gade Christensen in the Super Series Masters Finals souvenir book depicts him as a young boy.
The evergreen veteran was quite tickled as he turned 35 yesterday and is the oldest men’s player on tour. He thinks it is a true reflection of him - the Peter Pan of badminton who just wants to keep on playing.
“My team–mates made fun of me when they saw the picture. But it wasn’t as bad as that of Lee Chong Wei, and Taufik Hidayat looked quite funny too,” he quipped.
Yesterday, Christensen, who has graced the badminton scene for more than two decades, unveiled his plan for the future, which, expectedly, will involve youngsters.
He wants to be a coach when he ends his playing career after next year’s Olympic Games in London.
The Dane has kept a few options open as far as his coaching career is concerned.
