Peter Gade states it: No one is near Viktor Axelsen right now

Done happened again and again. Chinese Zhao Jun Peng had both a little desperation and confusion in his gaze when he looked for his coach between the duels. He had no idea what he was going to line up in Sunday’s Indonesia Open final, because opponent Viktor Axelsen was completely superior from start to finish. There was nothing the Chinese in his first World Tour final could do to reverse the course of the battle.

The great Dane won the Super 1000 tournament’s title match 21-9, 21-10 after just 37 minutes of play, and that’s almost how it usually goes when Axelsen reaches a final. For example, last week he won the Indonesia Masters with the figures 21-10, 21-12 over Taiwan’s Chen Tien Chou. Both times, the Dane has been celebrated by the audience in the famous and infamous Jakarta badminton hall Istora Senaya.
