World No. 2 Chou Tien Chen’s loss in the semi-final at the recently concluded DANISA Denmark Open 2020 has met some doubts amongst badminton enthusiasts in his home country.

He was the favourite to win the championship as the top seed in men’s singles after Kento Momota pulled out of the tournament in the 11th hour.

On his loss to Anders Antonsen in the semi-final, he said, “It’s not always a guarantee to win every match you play.”

Sports.ltn quoted Chou as saying, “This time I found myself playing the lost-awaited international tournament again. It is the biggest gain I got. I will correct my mistakes early and have more specific ideas for follow-up training. I did not leave empty-handed.”
