November 6, 1999 (NEW SHUTTLENWS) - Peter Gade of Denmark walloped another Peter from Denmark, Peter Rasmussen, in the men's singles final of the Ipoh Masters all-star invitational badminton tournament today 15-0 and 15-5 and romped away with the 7,000 US dollar first place purse. In the men's doubles title contest, Chandra Wijaya and Tony Gunawan of Indonesia defeated their fellow Indonesians Flandy Limpele and Eng Hian 15-11 and 15-9 and took home the 10,000 US dollar champion's prize.

The women's singles, women's doubles and mixed doubles events were not contested at the Ipoh Masters tournament.

In the men's singles final, Gade took advantage of Rasmussen's penchant for starting slowly and making many mistakes in the early going. He went on the attack from the first rally on and did not allow Rasmussen a chance to get his own attacking game going. With his tight net shots and baseline jumpsmashes working to near-perfection, Gade blanked his countryman 15-0 in the first and scored seven points in the second before Rasmussen was able to tally a marker.

Rasmussen managed to score several more points but Gade went back on the attack and finished him off quickly 15-5.

In another development, Peter Gade revealed that he was bypassing the China Open which takes place in Beijing in two weeks and that he would be training in Kuala Lumpur with the Malaysian national team instead in preparation for the Grand Prix Finals that starts December 1 in Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei.
