Anthony Sinisuka Ginting withdrew during his first round match yesterday at the Denmark Open citing an injury.

The score was 1-4 in the first game against Thomas Rouxel of France when Ginting retired due to a pain in his waist. 

Doctors later confirmed that Ginting had strained his muscles due to overuse during the back to back tournaments, the Sudirman Cup and the Thomas Cup.

“Actually, I felt a bit of pain in my waist during the Thomas Cup final. Before yesterday there was a two-day break, I tried to recover but maybe two days wasn’t enough, so I had to withdraw from my match at the Denmark Open,” Ginting said via PBSI.
