Rasmus Gemke reached the quarterfinals at the YONEX French Open, after winning against his compatriot, Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus.

Rasmus Gemke and Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus have one thing in common: both are playing for the same home country of Denmark.

On Thursday, Gemke and Vittinghus were facing each other for the first time at an international level. The result: The 21-year old Gemke won against the 32-year old Vittinghus after three tough games, 21-17, 19-21 and 21-15.

A match against the compatriot

After his win in Paris, Gemke was nearly speechless after his win in Paris: 

- It was very tough today. So, I am almost out of words now, Hans-Kristian was challenging me a lot on court. I was a bit nervous today, it is always difficult to play against a compatriot. Of course, I am happy right now, he said.

Gemke is playing against Kantaphom Wangcharoen from Thailand in the quarterfinal tomorrow.
