Danes Triumph Over Chinese Rivals in BWF World Tour Semifinals

Kim Astrup and Anders Skaarup Rasmussen have secured their spot in the finals of the YONEX French Open 2023, marking their sixth final appearance this year. They achieved this feat by defeating the formidable duo of Liu Yu Chen and Ou Xuan Yi with impressive scores of 21-17 and 21-19.

Rasmussen expressed his excitement, stating, “For the first time in our career, we are on a wave. We haven’t experienced such consistent success before. It feels incredible to have finally cracked the code and achieved near-perfection.” Astrup further added, “Winning against Liu feels like a monumental victory. We have struggled against him for a long time. This win has given us a great deal of confidence, and we are thoroughly enjoying this incredible journey.”

This victory against the Chinese pair ended the Danes’ four-match losing streak to the world No.8s. Astrup and Rasmussen had been striving to overcome Liu for years, particularly during his partnership with Olympic silver medalist Li Jun Hui, where Liu/Li had an 8-1 head-to-head record.

The dynamic Danish duo, who have been in exceptional form, winning three titles since July and earning a silver medal at the World Championships, will now face an exciting showdown against Muhammad Shohibul Fikri and Bagas Maulana in their quest for glory.
