The Danes got 12000 points from the World Tour Super 1000 tournament held in Changzhou, China and have climbed 5 spots up on the men’s doubles world ranking list.
 
-It feels really good to enter the top 5 - a big goal for us and a huge relief to win China Open, Kim Astrup tells Badminton Europe, adding

-Now we need to work even harder to stay there. Lots of great pairs around us and we do not tend to sit back and relax now.
