Viktor Axelsen shines in Denmark’s impressive performance against Singapore in Group A at the TotalEnergies BWF Sudirman Cup Finals 2023. Despite facing a strong opponent and the pressure of missed game points, Axelsen displays remarkable composure and leads his team to a strong start.

In their previous encounters, Loh Kean Yew had the upper hand against Axelsen. However, the Danish player’s determination and skill prevail in this match. Despite a brief window of opportunity for Loh at 11-8 in the third game, Axelsen responds with an eight-point streak, securing the victory and contributing to Denmark’s 2-0 lead.

“This was an important win,” says Axelsen. “Playing against Loh was tough, and I knew it would be difficult. I’m grateful for the experience and glad that I managed to come out on top. Loh is a great player, and his attacks were always threatening.”

Denmark’s Mathias Christiansen and Alexandra BØje also make a strong contribution in the opening match, defeating Terry Hee/Jessica Tan 21-19 21-18. Mia Blichfeldt continues Denmark’s success, followed by Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen, who secure a 4-0 lead. Singapore manages to pull one back through Jin Yu Jia/Crystal Wong in the women’s doubles.

In another Group A match, China dominates against Egypt, comfortably winning four matches in under 25 minutes. Although Adham Hatem Elgamal initially poses a challenge for Shi Yu Qi in men’s singles, the world No.10 eventually takes control and secures the win.

I believe I’ve improved since I last played top players. I will watch the match recording to learn from my mistakes and prepare for Denmark.”

In their opening tie against England, Japan delivers a strong performance, only dropping one game in five matches. Chloe Birch and Lauren Smith manage to take a game off Mayu Matsumoto/Wakana Nagahara before the two-time world champions seal the victory for Japan with a score of 21-17 13-21 21-11.
