Viktor Axelsen loves to play in Odense, the town where he grew up as a kid, and where all of his family lives – A young training partner was to strong for him today!
Anders Antonsen another young upcoming star from Denmark played an amazing match today against home darling Viktor Axelsen. First set was all Antonsen everywhere, winning it easy 21/10. In the second set Viktor really showed world class also winning it okay easy 21/12. It seemed that the side where Antonsen was better to play at because of the draft in the stadium. So everything was cooking up for a thriller in the 3rd set, and it was indeed. Antonsen was in the lead all the way but Viktor has his chance at 20/19 but it was the young boy of Denmark who could secure his spot in tomorrows quarterfinal. Antonsen meets Huang from China. Very open match, will be interesting to see these to players of the future, who will win.
