Hang on, ‘cause we’re about to go into the final hours of DANISA DENMARK OPEN 2019 presented by VICTOR and what a show we can expect! Five finals await but who will win the title, take home the trophy and the prize money with a total sum of 775.000 US$? Let’s take look into the final showdowns of DANISA DENMARK OPEN presented by VICTOR.

 

Finally; the finals! Five of them to be exact – and what five!

We have reached the conclusive stage of DANISA DENMARK OPEN 2019 presented by VICTOR where the going without a doubt will be getting tough. But who will be able to keep their game up until the end?

Let’s take a look into what to expect starting from the top of Today’s matches.

12 o’clock the defending champion of DANISA DENMARK OPEN presented by VICTOR in women’s singles, Tai Tzu Ying, enters Court 1 where she one year ago beat Saina Nehwal. The Taiwanese titleholder is going to try and keep the trophy in her custody but, no doubt, her final opponent, Japanese Nozomi Okuhara, will give her very most to take it away.

The women’s singles final is followed by a final in mixeddouble that will be fought out by Indonesian Praveen Jordan/Melati Oktavianti and Chinese Dong Ping Huang/Yi Liu Wang. Out of six showdowns between the two pairs so far, Jordan/Oktavianti still haven’t managed to overcome the Chinese even once. However, there’s a first time for everything, isn’t there? We’re about to find out if this is the one!

Afterwards the final in women’s doubles will go down. Both world number one and two pair from Japan, respectively, were knocked out yesterday by the two final pairs, Korean Ha Na Baek/Kyung Eun Jung and Chinese Chen Qing Chen/Jia Yi Fan. On paper, the Koreans standing in this final is indeed a surprise in the light of their current world ranking as number 23. However, through the tournament, they have proved, that they are able to overcome even the two times defending world champions, Mayu Matsumoto/Wakana Nagahara.

Post to the women the men’s doubles players are up and one thing is already for certain; we will have an Indonesian winner in the category as Kevin Sukamuljo/Marcus Gideon and Hendra Setiawan/Mohammad Ahsan face each other. So far, Setiawan/Ahsan have had their challenging tasks overcoming their countrymen. In their last eight showdowns Sukamuljo/Gideon have taken in the win. Maybe ninth time’s a lucky charm?

The last match will be between world champion Kento Momota and Chen Long. The Chinese took home a close win against local hero Viktor Axelsen yesterday and, today, thing might get tight as well. The previous two times the two titans have faced each other, Momota has won in three close sets. Hopefully, Momota and Long will give us a men’s singles final to remember!
