Danish doubles player Mathias Christiansen has spent the past six months studying Indonesian. He said that he started to learn the language to fill in the time due to the absence of tournaments.

In a post-match interview after his first round at the DANISA Denmark Open 2020, he showed his new language skill by sending greetings to all the Indonesian players including those who had stayed back home due to the Covid-19 fear.

Through Sport tv2, Christiansen said, “I would like to send a greeting to you all. I look forward to seeing you in January. And Badminton Denmark will do everything to make you feel safe here. I’m very happy that badminton is back so we can play again. Thank you very much.”

Christiansen said that he felt bored during the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown and thought of doing something useful to pass the time. He said, “It has been something else to look at next to badminton and I hope I can use it in the future and get a little closer to the Indonesian players and fans.

Badminton is really big in Indonesia, so I practice a little every day, and I think it’s progressing, so I’m looking forward to getting even better.”
