Sports careerEdit

1984 -1997: Professional Lisbet Stuer-Lauridsen was a Singles and Doubles player, it was very difficult for her to choose one discipline, but to come to the quarterfinals in both disciplines was not enough for her and she had a lot of injuries from 1984 - 1990 because of playing two disciplines, so the last 6 years she only focused on double. This decision showed to be right, it didn’t take long before she was top 1 - 4 on the world ranking and she finished her career as number 1 on the world ranking.

1978-1984: Junior success and WTA debut Lisbet’s Stuer-Lauridsen won EM under 18 years when she was under 16 years in Double and Single. She won the nationals in her ages group in singles and double. The first unofficial world Championships was played under 18 years and Lisbet attended as 16 years and runner-up in singles, winner in Ladies double and runner-up in Mixed Double.

Playing style Lisbet Stuer-Lauridsen was a player with a strong mental and technical strength and was as well good at placing her smash so it made it difficult for the opponent to return it and made it offend easier for her double partner to be able to come in at the net.
