A very temperamental player, Jan O Jorgensen didn’t win many hearts as what he did yesterday in his match against Iskandar Zulkarnain was simply not acceptable.
During the mid game interval of the 3rd game, as both player changed ends in the court, Iskandar seemed to forget and leave his wet t shirt in the kit box. Instead of calling out to reminding or calling out to Iskandar, Jan simply picked it up and threw it across. What lack of sportsman spirit from Jan O Jorgensen. Iskandar’s coach calmly picked it up from the floor.
Not only that, Iskandar also later told media that Jan kept calling him “Lee Chong Wei” as if to mock him and disturb his concentration.
Surely you can be better than this Jan. Come on! At the least he could have left it alone, or better still reminded Iskandar.
Jan seemed to be frustrated either with the way Iskandar was serving, or how quickly he served, or maybe Iskandar’s vocal celebrations after points.
A dirty player indeed but it worked wonders for Jan O Jorgensen as he beats Chen Long for the title.
