Anders Antonsen ousted world champion Loh Kean Yew from the All England yesterday in an exciting three-game encounter. (Score : 21-15,18-21, 21-13)

Antonsen: “Of course I needed to be prepared for his speed. The last time I played an international match was against Loh, so right back in action against him, it was fun to get another chance to defeat him.

“I was trying to build myself physically during the last two months. It was a tough one to start against him, and I played a long three-game match against him, but I’m really happy to get this one back, it’s been haunting me quite a lot since the World Championships.”
