Boe & Mogensen Win Second Superseries Premier Title
- 28 November 2011
It was a great day for the Danes on Saturday as the mixed doubles and men’s doubles both reached the finals of the China Open.
Mathias Boe (AT900-P) and Carsten Mogensen (VT70) are back in the finals after defeating the #2 seeded pair Lee Yong Dae / Jung Jae Sung of Korea, 19-21, 23-21, 22-20. With much intensity, every point mattered in this match up and the Dan’s were able to come out stronger than their opponent.
Joachim Fischer Nielsen (VT80) and Christinna Pedersen (NS9900) found themselves back in the finals with much ease, not losing any games in the tournament.
In the final on Sunday, Boe and Mogensen became the second Danish men’s doubles pair to win the China Open. They had a match-up with the #4 seed Ko Sung Hyun/ Yoo Yeong Seong of Korea. It took 42 minutes for Boe and Mogensen to defeat the opponents with a straight set. They seemed that they couldn’t believe it.
Fischer and Pedersen advanced to the final for the 5 consecutive tournament since YONEX OPEN JAPAN in September. The match against Zhang Nan and Zhao Yunlei of China was the fifth time in this year. Fischer and Pedersen seemed tired and couldn’t capture the title.
