Viktor Axelsen Secures Back-to-Back Title at BWF Indonesia Open 2022

Viktor Axelsen, the Danish badminton superstar, continued his remarkable form by successfully defending his BWF Indonesia Open title. The tournament, held in Jakarta, witnessed Axelsen’s dominant performance throughout the week, culminating in a spectacular one-sided final against Zhao Junpeng. This victory marked Axelsen’s eighth consecutive Super 1000 final.

In a commanding display, Axelsen outclassed the unseeded Chinese shuttler with a scoreline of 21-9, 21-10. Although Junpeng had displayed commendable skill to reach the final, he was unable to match Axelsen’s prowess on the day.

Axelsen’s most challenging match came in the semifinals against Malaysia’s sixth seed, Lee Zii Jia. The match extended to over an hour, with Axelsen emerging victorious with a score of 19-21, 21-11, 23-21. This hard-fought win showcased Axelsen’s determination and resilience.

Notably, Axelsen was the only player among the top three seeds to progress past the first round. Both Kento Momota, who was defeated by Rasmus Gemke, and Anders Antonsen, who withdrew, faced early exits from the tournament.

Expressing his gratitude, Axelsen took to Twitter, thanking the passionate Indonesian badminton fans for their support and generosity. He also acknowledged his team, family, and friends for their unwavering support throughout the tournament.

In the women’s singles draw, Tai Tzu-ying claimed her third Indonesia Open crown in a thrilling battle against China’s Wang Zhiyi. Despite losing the opening game 23-21, Tai Tzu-ying made a remarkable comeback, winning the next two sets flawlessly with scores of 21-23, 21-6, 21-15. This victory marked Tai Tzu-ying’s second consecutive tournament win, following her triumph at the Thailand Open last month.
