The defending Thomas Cup champions will be missing one of their aces. Carsten Mogensen will not be ready to play at the 2018 edition of Thomas Cup in Bangkok. The Danish shuttler is suffering from symptoms from the aneurism, which struck him back in 2016.
 
Carsten Mogensens double partner Mathias Boe will still be part of the Danish team and as a substitute for Mogensen, Anders Skaarup who currently ranks 10 in the world has been chosen.
 
Although this is a huge loss for the Danish side, they are still represented well in the doubles category. With 3 pairs in the top 10 on the world ranking, they can still produce two world-class men’s doubles, who can challenge almost everyone.
