The Danish men’s double was the European highlight at the quarterfinals at Denmark Open.

Mathias Boe and Carsten Mogensen are currently the highest ranking European pair on the World ranking, and the Danes are also the only European left at Denmark Open 2017.

Boe and Mogensen played the all Danish quarterfinal against Niklas Nøhr and Kasper Antonsen, who took a big scalp in the second round beating countrymen Mads Kolding and Mads Conrad Petersen. Friday Boe and Mogensen took the victory in two set.

The Danes write on their Facebook page:

- We are happy to be through to the semi-final. The semi-final will be a rematch of the quarter final of World Championship in Glasgow - hopefully with a different winner though.

European Champion had to withdraw

Kamilla Rytter Juhl and Christinna Pedersen, the number three seed in women’s double, were also expected to enter the court on Friday, but the Danes didn’t make it to the court.

- Unfortunately Kamilla suffered an injury in the end of the match(against Stoeva’s in the second round)and are not able to go on court. 

- We did everything possible to get ready. Right now we are both of course very disappointed, but it’s the right thing to do in this situation, the Danish pair writes on their Facebook page.
