On the evening of December 27, 2012, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark attended the Copenhagen Masters held at the Falkoner Hall in Frederiksberg.
The future king of Denmark along with 1,500 Badminton fans watched Mr. Peter Gade play his farewell match against Mr. Lin Dan of China. In an interview with the Danish network, TV2, the crown prince spoke about Mr. Gade and his contributions to the sport of Badminton:
“Peter has done a huge amount for Danish badminton. He has fantastic charisma and has been the strongest Danish player of the last 15 years. He has shown incredible persistence to be part of the elite for so many years. The fact that Lin Dan comes here to play Peter in his final match says everything about just how big a name Peter is…”
So who won the match? Mr. Gade of course.
