Momota denies Srikanth back-to-back finals
A year ago, Srikanth Kidambi could raise his arms in glory as the champion of Denmark Open. But this year, the new world number one Kento Momota got in the way. There is no need to point out, that Momota is the man to beat at the moment if you want a top spot at the podium. And today, Srikanth was not up for that challenge.
Despite the score, the Indian stood no chance in the first set, as Momota cruised a solid 21-17 win home. The same tendency were present in the second set, as Momota crushed Srikanth by 21-12. Tomorrow in the final he will face Chou, who is showing great form at the moment, or young Dane Anders Antonsen.
Tai Tzu Ying eases into the final
30 minutes. That’s how long it took for Tai Tzy Ying to ouplay He Bingjao in the semifinal. 21-14, 21-12. Besides from a blunder in the second set against Chen Yufei, Tai has gone effortless through the tournament. It is very hard to imagine anyone else standing at the top of the podium tomorrow.
Tunjung from Indonesia og Saina Nehwal from India awaits in the final.
