News | BWF World Championships

Having had an exceptional year full of victories, Viktor Axelsen is prepared to make his mark at the TotalEnergies BWF World Championships 2021, the final event of the season. With a remarkable record of winning seven titles and 61 out of 64 matches in 2021, Axelsen’s success has been unparalleled. However, he remains humble and focused on maintaining his momentum at future events.

Axelsen acknowledges that things have gone extremely well for him this year. He attributes his success to continuous effort and intends to replicate his winning formula in the upcoming tournament. Despite numerous tournaments, Axelsen plans to take it one day at a time to ensure he performs at his best. A tireless competitor, he battled exhaustion during the Bali leg of events, as seen in the accompanying image.

The 26th World Championships, held in Huelva, Spain, marks Axelsen’s opportunity to achieve a rare feat – winning both the Olympic gold and the World Championships in the same calendar year. Only one other pair, Lee Yang/Wang Chi-Lin from Chinese Taipei, have the same opportunity. Unfortunately, some of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic gold medalists will not be competing in Huelva.

Axelsen is in good shape and free from injuries as he enters the World Championships. He acknowledges that it is impossible to reach peak performance at every tournament, so he focuses on maintaining his physical and mental condition. The pressure is immense, but Axelsen has found a balance that allows him to bring his best game to the court. He recognizes that this year’s World Championships are unique due to the extensive travel and tournament schedule of Asian players. Nevertheless, he is eager to compete and showcase his skills.

While Axelsen is the clear favorite, his opening match against Loh Kean Yew will require him to stay vigilant. Loh has shown tremendous improvement, especially after training with Axelsen in Dubai.

As the world champion of 2017, this tournament provides Axelsen with an opportunity to conclude an extraordinary year on a high note. Regardless of the outcome, he is content with his achievements in 2021 and looks forward to what the future holds.
