Sea of Denmark in Malaysian Masters, spells trouble for others


PETALING JAYA: It’s a rare sight but Denmark have sent an army to make a mark in the men’s singles of the Malaysian Masters starting on Tuesday at the Axiata Arena.

The first two seeds are Viktor Axelsen (pic) and Anders Antonsen.

World No. 1 Axelsen is on a mission to win his first title this year after going through a string of misfortunes. He has won the Malaysian Masters once in 2018 and seems determined to get his act right here.

Antonsen, ranked fourth in the world, has arrived here with an intent to make up for his disappointment in the Thailand Open after losing to Angus Ng Ka Long in the first round.

The other two representatives from Denmark are Magnus Rasmussen and Rasmus Gemke.

While Denmark boast four players in the main draw, Malaysia will be banking on Lee Zii Jia and Leong Jun Hao to ruffle some feathers.

They will also be hoping for professionals Soong Joo Ven and Cheam June Wei, who will start from the qualifying tournament, to join Zii Jia and Jun Hao in the main draw.
