During the forenoon wednesday, the defending champion in women’s singles, Tai Tzu Ying, enters the court. The world number one Taiwanese will play Thai Nitchaon Jindapol, who is world ranked 19.

Later on, two of the world’s strongest men’s doubles collide. The recent Chinese Taipei Open winners and world number 10 constellation, Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong, is facing a proper challenge in their very first match. On the other side of the net, the world champions from Indonesia, Mohammad Ahsan/Hendra Setiawan will be standing well equipped for an afternoon roar of guaranteed grand caliber.

Approaching dinner time, a worth seeing streak of Danish singles await that, for sure, will give rise to the atmosphere in the arena and light things up. First up is the World Championships silver medallist Anders Antonsen. The 22-year old Dane that has shown great condition over a considerable amount of time will wednesday night be grappling with former winner of DANISA DENMARK OPEN presented by VICTOR, Kidambi Srikanth. Srikanth and Antonsen have only faced each other once, two years back, where the Indian took the victory. However, a lot has happened since 2017, and Antonsen is as fourth seed the bookmakers favorite.

Subsequently, Viktor Axelsen goes on court and will be up against Japanese Kenta Nishimoto who is world ranked 14. The Danish men’s singles will for sure be top motivated to give his very best on his home turf in Odense. Without doubt, the Dane will, as always in Odense, make his home crowd ecstatic when entering the court – and even more so if he manages to take in the triumph.

When Axelsen leaves the court, it will be taken over by yet another Dane, Mia Blichfeldt who, indeed, will be facing strong resistance in the showdown with sixth seed Thai Ratchanok Intanon. However, with a solid level of home turf support, Blichfeldt showed by beating Carolina Marin at last year’s DANISA DENMARK OPEN presented by VICTOR that she’s indeed capable of providing surprises. Soon enough we’ll get to know if she again can provide a surprise in Odense.

As Tuesday, Wednesday will as well and for sure become a tremendous badminton day.

Of course, Badminton Denmark will see to cover the event the entire week on all our social media as well as our websites, badminton.dk and denmarkopen.dk.
