Viktor Axelsen took the men’s singles title at the Denmark Open after defeating Kento Momota in the final in a marathon match that lasted 1 hour and 33 mins.

Score: 20-22, 21-18, 21-12

Axelsen seemed edgy in the first game but grew in confidence in the latter part of the second game. By the third game, Axelsen was playing like the Olympic champion that he is.

He has finally ended his “mental block” against Momota with this win and now their head to head record stands at 2-14.

Axelsen said, “After the first set, I was ready to cut off both legs and go away in a wheelchair.

“I’m a little tired, but winning it is a dream come true for me. And to see my friends, family, my amazing girlfriend and dad and mom. It is absolutely fantastic.” (courtesy: TV2)
