PETALING JAYA: Doubles shuttlers Kim Astrup-Anders Skaarup Rasmussen will play as independent shuttlers for the first time at the World Tour Finals in Guangzhou starting today due to some problems back at home with the national body.

It is learnt that Astrup-Rasmussen and other national players in Denmark, including former world champion Viktor Axelsen, have been training on their own since Dec 3 due to some contract issues with Badminton Denmark.
