Don’t you think the looks of Peter Gade and Taufik Hidayat 10 years ago were just simply adorable? They seem smaller in sizes. It’s just like a miniature of current Taufik Hidayat and Peter Gade.

Anyway enjoy the finals of the 1999 All England men singles finals between the two great champions. Taufik was still in his teens if i am not mistaken taking on a 21 year old Peter Gade. Both were at the top of their game at that time.

It should be an entertaining match. A match that you all wouldn’t want to miss. Enjoy the badminton people of Badminton Freak!

    Both Peter Gade and Taufik are cute and lovely in this video. I saw the tactics and footworks were a lot of difference from now.

  • As far as I know, Taufik has never won a title of All England open, right?

    Cool vid , got any videos of other players in younger age like Lin Dan or LCW ?

  • This is great! notice how the fashion is so different too. It was all about loose t shirts then and small shorts, now it’s generally less baggy.

    They look sooooo young!
