September 3, 1999 (NEW SHUTTLENWS) - Three of the top-seeded Danish entries at the Indonesian Open badminton championships in Denpasar, Bali tumbled out of the competition in today's quarterfinal action. Men's singles top-seed Peter Gade, women's singles world champion Camilla Martin, and the women's doubles top pick, Ann Jorgensen and Majken Vange, all were beaten today by opponents from the host nation.

Gade was defeated by Marleve Mainaky 9-15 and 13-15. Martin lost to Lidya Djaelawidjaya 11-13, 7-11 and 9-11, and the Jorgensen-Vange combination fell to Ema Ermawati and Vita Marissa 4-15, 15-10 and 10-15.

In the Gade-Mainaky match, the Indonesian dominated an off-form Gade in the first game and won the set 15-9. Gade made a strong comeback at the start of the second set and had a big lead at 12-4 but Mainaky was able to surmount the Dane's advantage with sharp play especially at the net area.

Gade did not help his cause any with several mistakes. Mainaky knotted up the set and soon was at match point 14-12. The Dane scored a point to close in at 13-14 but Mainaky got the serve back and tallied the match-winning point.

In the Martin-Djaelawidjaya quarterfinal, the Indonesian took the tightly contested opener in a tiebreak 13-11. Martin came back in the second to win handily at 11-7 and was in command in the decider with a 9-6 lead. The Dane though could not finish Djaelawidjaya off as she began to tire and made several unforced errors. Djaelawidjaya took control of the rallies and rattled off 5 points to take the match.
