YONEX Denmark Open 2015: Danish Shuttlers Power into Quarterfinals

The third day of the YONEX Denmark Open saw the nation’s shuttlers continue their advance in front of their local crowd.

Viktor Axelsen (ARCSABER 11SHB-87EX) is into the men’s singles quarterfinals after an authoritative two-game win over Korea’s Son Wan Ho. The World No. 7 Dane was strong in his rallies in the opening game, landing points at opportune moments. The final game proved to be a one-sided affair, the Dane holding an ever increasing lead over his opponent. The match closed at 21-15 21-6 when the Korean sent the shuttle flying into the net.

Lin Dan (VOLTRIC Z-FORCE Ⅱ LDSHBSC6LDEX) secured a comfortable win over Hong Kong’s Hu Yun (NANORAY 750, SHBF1NLTD) after dropping a close opening game. The 2015 YONEX OPEN JAPAN champion powered back with his tried and true brand of keen and aggressive shot making, winning with a final score of 19-21 21-10 21-16. The King of Badminton is currently competing with the new edition of the Lin Dan Exclusive line, which goes on sale worldwide in late November.

The nation’s top men’s doubles team of Mathias Boe (DUORA 10, SHBSC6iEX) and Carsten Mogensen (DUORA 10SHB87LTD) continued their way through the draw, securing a solid win over Indonesia’s Angga Pratama (NANORAY 900SHB87LTD) and Ricky Karanda Suwardi (NANORAY 900, SHB-87EX). After a tight opening encounter, the Danes clutched victory at 19-21 16-21, commanding rallies in the second game, forcing their opponents into several errors.

World Champion Carolina Marin (NANORAY Z-SPEEDSHB-02LX) continued her reign in women’s singles, making it past local shuttler Mette Poulsen in straight games at 21-19 21-13. Kamilla Rytter Juhl (NANORAY 900, SHB87LTD)/Christinna Pedersen(NANORAY 800SHB-02LX) are maintaining great performance on their home turf, making it into the women’s doubles quarterfinals over Malaysia’s Vivian Kah Mun Hoo and Khe Wei Woon with a score of 16-21 13-21.
