Axelsen the first European boss in quite a while

Axelsen holds onto minute without Momota. A straight sets 21-13, 21-14 triumph over Chinese Taipei’s Chou Tien-Chen at Arena Birmingham on Sunday makes Axelsen the first European boss in quite a while.

What’s more, Tai Tzu Ying is the ladies’ hero for the third time in four years, overcoming China’s Chen Yu Fei 21-19, 21-15.

Axelsen needed to make due with second a year ago, beaten in the last by current World No.1 Momota Kento, who proceeds with his recuperation after a street mishap, yet this time he took advantage of the lucky break.

The World No.7 went on the assault from the beginning and never let Chou settle. The Danish shuttler nearly didn’t make it to the last in the wake of dropping the principal set in the semi-last to Malaysian World No.13 Lee Zii Jia 17-21.

In any case, the 26-year-old hit back to win 17-21, 21-13, 21-19. In the last he permitted himself no such pass, taking the game to Chou, blasting into a 12-7 lead before taking the primary set 21-13.

“A great deal of amazing names on this one,” the new champ said supporting the trophy close, “it is a fantasy worked out as expected.”

“At this moment I can say that I am the All England champ 2020. It sounds entirely great in my ears. I am so glad at the present time.”

“I think I figured out how to play truly well today. In these finals it comes down to whether you can control your feelings and adhere to the course of action. I figured out how to do that today and I am so upbeat about that.”

Presently being referenced in a similar sentence as Gade, Frost, and Kops, the monumental Dane was enchanted:

“Taking a gander at the unbelievable Danish men’s singles players that have been doing admirably here, putting my name on this trophy is a major accomplishment.”

“I don’t know truly what to state other than right now I need to appreciate this success. I am extremely upbeat and pleased about my presentation this week.”

Axelsen’s opponent and 2019 Indonesia Open victor Chou said he has work to do after the last:

“It was hard for me as he is truly quick and had the option to control me, so I have to work more diligently after this last, as this is the main way I can improve.”

“He was superior to me, yet I will get ready more since I need to win a title here.”
