The Danish Women’s Doubles pairing of Kamilla Rytter Juhl/Christinna Pedersen announced last year that they would be parents to a new arrival, Molly, due in the early stages of 2019.

With Rytter Juhl taking a break from badminton, Christinna Pedersen has put her efforts into the Mixed Doubles and won the European Mixed Team Championships in Copenhagen.

An addition to the family

Christinna Pedersen and Kamilla Rytter Juhl are a pair on court since 2010, and a couple since 2009. The last year was not only a good year for them on court, especially off court Pedersen and Juhl announced big news: A new family member was on its way.

- Kamilla got pregnant in 2018, which was a big dream for us that came true. Since the start of our relationship, it has been a big wish for the both of us, and now the time is right for us. We are very happy to become mommy-K and mommy-C (laughs).

Their daughter Molly was born in January, and the third girl in the household will get to know the sport of badminton as soon as possible. 

The future for the Women’s Doubles

Pedersen/Juhl played their last match at the Indonesia Open last year, at the beginning of July. Even though the pair have not played together since then, it is still ranked within the Top 20 in the world. 

- We do not know, what the future will bring for us in Women’s Doubles. We have decided to wait and see how things will develop after Kamilla has given birth to our daughter. 

- It could be fun to fight our way back to the top, but we are also aware of that it requires a lot of hard work and motivation, Pedersen said.
