Denmark Open quarter final remake

What a watch! The 2017 world champion has been defeated in 3 games by the world no 9, Saina Nehwal. The two women know each other pretty well.

The crowd was on fire for this match ! It seems that the Indian is going to be a conqueror in this tournament. Final score: 10-21 21-14 21-17. 

No more European player

Mia Blichfeldt was this only European in the women’s single draw. After a promising first round, she faced today the Indonesian TUNJUNG. She easily took the 1st game 21-13. She met some strong resistance from her opponent and lost the 2nd game. Mia Blichfeldt seemed quite weakened at the beginning of the ultimate game, despite the crowd support. She lost in the end 13-21 21-14 21-11.

Asian success

The world no 1 Tai Tzu Ying made her entrance on the court for the 1st match of the day. The crowd cheered that huge champion at her arrival. Tai Tzu Ying faced a player from China ranked 14. But Tai Tzu Ying is not world number one for nothing. She took the first game 21-12 after winning the 2nd one 21-17. No worries for the world no 1 who get her ticket for the next round.
