The Danish men’s team is ready for the final in Liévin.

Since the first edition of the European Men’s Team Championships was hosted in Greece back in 2006 the Danish men’s team has not lost a single tie. This did not change on Saturday where the Danes played Russia in the 2020 European Men’s Team Championships semifinal in Liévin, France.

In Viktor Axelsen Denmark has a strong card to play in the first men’s singles, and against Vladimir Malkov the world number three showed why he currently is the one to beat in Europe. Axelsen won in straight games 21-18 21-7.

- My point of view is that you sort of has to go in there and do the best you can and do your job, and obviously most would expect me to win today, and I am really happy that I managed to do so, Axelsen said.

Jørgensen match winner
In the first men’s doubles two of the absolute European top pair met: BEC Male Player of the Year 2018, Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen, and the former All England champions, Vladimir Ivanov/Ivan Sozonov, and one things is for sure: The spectators were not disappointed.

The Danes won a high-level men’s doubles 21-19 21-15 and then Jan Ø. Jørgensen entered the court with the chance of becoming the match winner for Denmark.

Despite of trailing most of the first game Jørgensen won the first game 22-20 against Georgii Karpov. In the second game Jørgensen dominated winning 21-11.

- I do not care if I win, personally, or if any of the other guys win or lose, as long as we get the three matches. If I play singles or doubles, first or second singles, I do not mind. I just want to win, Jørgensen said.
