Unruly Viktor Axelsen has done it again.

For the second year in a row, the Funen badminton star triumphs in the Super 1000 tournament Indonesia Open, a huge achievement in a historic victory, which was celebrated with a euphoric running round around the course in the boiling Istora Senayan hall.

The Danish world setter was the big favorite before the final, and he lived up to the favorite dignity with a sure and almost humiliating victory over Chinese Zhao Junpeng.

Zhao Junpeng, who is number 35 in the world, was defeated in two quick sets with the figures 21-9, 21-10, and thus Axelsen continues his gigantic upturn in 2022, which, among other things, has offered victories in All England and Indonesia Masters.

Although the final was easy for Viktor Axelsen, he has had to fight hard to triumph in Indonesia.

Especially in the horror semifinal against Malaysian Lee Zii Jia, number five in the world, he got sweat on his forehead in a close three-set victory.

Indonesia Open is a Super 1000 tournament and thus one of the biggest of the year.

With the victory comes almost 600,000 kroner for the 28-year-old Dane, who is wading in success in these years.
