ENJOY THE WORLDS BEST PLAYERS IN ODENSE badminton denmark welcomes everyone to Yonex Denmark Open - both a title and a tournament which we are very proud to host. We have been developing rapidly since last year’s denmark open. the badminton association of denmark has changed its name and design and now we are badminton denmark with red and white colors - and we are proud that Yonex - the world’s best badminton producer - are closely associated as a partner with badminton denmark. this means that all our events Yonex Denmark Open and Yonex Copenhagen Masters now have new titles - which just emphasizes the close ties in between us. Peter Jensen

Odense municipality also plays a vital role as being able to host a big tournament like a Premier. Sport Event Denmark is another major actor in ensuring the big prize money needed to meet the demands of the BWF. but there won’t be a tournament without the danish club culture and all the volunteers from OBK who use their spare time to support badminton denmarks professional staff to carry out Yonex denmark open and thereby ensure a tournament of world class with the elite players in the world (you can read more about the players under profiles). at last but not least, I shall also say a special thank you to all our other solid partners: FuN, oK, Holsterbro rejsecenter, tV2 sPort - and those specifically related to the Yonex denmark open: citroen, carl Hansen & søn, sport event Fyn, bWF and osim. Welcome to Yonex Denmark Open!

ODENSE MUNCIPIAL WELCOMES YOU ALL on behalf of the city of odense it is a great pleasure to welcome you all to the danish part of the international superseries in badminton, Yonex Denmark Open 2011. the area of sports is very much prioritized by the city of odense. I therefore would like to thank especially Badminton Denmark and all the volunteers from our local club Odense Badminton Club, who make this event possible. to host big sports events in odense does not only stimulate the public interest for sports and exercise in all; it also makes it possible on close hand to experience sport in the absolute elite – some times even world class. With the nomination as “Premier”, this Yonex denmark open event is no exception; it is with no doubt the best badminton players of the world, who visit odense to compete for the prestigious glory and title of this tournament.

Anker Boye

odense is of course very proud of the Yonex Denmark Open event; an event we host for the fifth time in a row. by hosting this event, we are automatically compared with big cities like Paris, Kuala Lumpur, singapore and Hong Kong – cities which normally get much more international publicity than our city. but we are now, thanks to Yonex denmark open, much more noticed around the world and that is why Odense continues to prioritize this event. because only be trying to be an innovative and farsighted city, which sees big sport events as an important attraction and an asset for the citizens, we will stand out as a unique city. therefore, the scene for a fantastic and exiting event is definitely set for both participants and spectators – I know Badminton Denmark, the city of odense and the volunteers will certainly do anything we can, to make this event a success in every way. once again welcome to odense, have a pleasant time and good luck to all the participants.

WELCOME TO ODENSE! First and foremost, allow me to congratulate Badminton Denmark on its hosting of an osIM bWF World superseries Premier event. this year has been a memorable year for badminton with the introduction of a two-tier superseries circuit – the superseries Premier and superseries. the superseries circuit offers a minimum total prize money of usd200,000 for each tournament while the superseries Premier offers a minimum total prize money of usd350,000 and the response to host these competitions has been overwhelming. badminton also saw its first ever million dollar prize money event with the Korea open in January offering us$1.2 million in total prize money while the Indonesia open saw prize money of us$600,000. and now we have the US$400,000 Yonex Denmark Open.

Dr. Kang Young Joong

a good competition structure is one of the pillars of a strong sports association and the bWF is fortunate to have a calendar that offers a wide range of events for players of all levels. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to all the sponsors of the denmark open and local agencies for their unwavering support through the years and hope for their continued support in the future. special thanks also goes out to OSIM, our superseries Global sponsor, and YONEX, the title sponsor, for their solid support in making the superseries circuit a great success. to all the volunteers, technical officials, media and individuals who have contributed one way or the other towards the success of this event, my sincere thanks to all of you.

VM Ishockey 2017 og VM herrer håndbold 2017.

A F L A R S L U N D OV, C E O, S P O R T E V E N T D E N M A R K

et VM i badminton 2014 står meget højt på listen over events, som danmark virkelig håber at blive vært for. badminton er en stor og populær sportsgren i danmark, de danske atleter gør det fremragende og henter mange medaljer, og endeligt er det alt for længe siden at VM i badminton har været afholdt i danmark. og et VM i danmark vil blive afviklet innovativt og med et set-up, som allerede nu er ved at blive udviklet i forbindelse med netop Yonex Denmark Open Premiere Superseries. en række store internationale sportsevents har allerede fundet sted her i 2011, og den danske indsats på sportseventområdet nyder stor anerkendelse både nationalt og uden for landets grænser. dette har også i betydet, at danmark har fået tildelt adskillige store og prestigefyldte events til afvikling de kommende år. eM i håndbold for herrer 2014, VM i håndbold for kvinder 2015, eM i dressur og ridebanespringning 2013, eM i volleyball for herrer 2013, eM i bordtennis 2012, VM i bueskydning 2015 og VM i trampolin 2015 kan vi bl.a. glæde os over skal afvikles her i landet. og vi har allerede nydt godt af bl.a.

SERIOUS CHANCE FOR GADE Peter Gade won his first Danish Open in 1998. 13 years later, he is ready to go after his last Yonex Denmark Open title. Badminton Denmark has talked to Peter Gade about Denmark Open. BY R A S M U S B E C H

His first major tournament on danish soil, he can barely even remember. His first victory at the denmark open, then danish open, was in 1998. 13 years later, Peter Gade ready for the tournament, which most probably will be his last. one thing is certain: It’s the last time he believes in the big victory on home ground. - If I make up for the denmark open after Olympics, then my mind set will be different compared to the entrance that I have this years. this year is the last serious chance to get the title for me, Peter Gade says ahead of Yonex denmark open. the experienced dane is not a second of doubt that it will be a tournament with a bang. - It is very hard to win this year. It will be the strongest group of players that we might ever have had to the tournament. It’s good for denmark, although it becomes harder for us. We have to be happy if we have danish players among the best, Peter Gade says. A STRANGE AND FUNNY TOURNAMENT Peter Gade is one of the world’s most successful badminton players. denmark open has never been a tournament that Peter Gade has had virtually patented, just as he had on the copenhagen Masters and danish nationals. - Denmark Open is a funny tournament to me. at an early age I hit a surprisingly high level in this tournament. I wanted and want to win the tournament, every time I start playing here, but it’s been a little odd. there have been many different reasons why I did not win more often. there are many things that must go into a higher unity if you are to win the denmark open, and the things have not gone my way so often, Peter Gade says. Peter Gade won the denmark open three times, in 1998, 2000 and 2008, but it is not only the victories, Peter Gade remember when he looks back at his denmark open career. | PAG E 24 | YONEX D ENMARK O PEN 2011 |

- I’ve played some good matches against dong Jiong, which I am proud of. both the final in 1998 which, but also the final I lost to him in 1997. the tournament in odense may very well be Gades last Yonex denmark open. It is first in 2012 decided whether he will be a part of the men’s singles line up for next year’s tournament. and it is rather unusual denmark’s perhaps best men’s singles of all time admitted. - of course it’s special, that every time I go somewhere, it’s the last time I will play there. denmark open is also special because it is our tournament, Peter Gade says. WANT’S TO HIT THE WBC LEVEL the floor and building of odense sports Park is the home ground of Yonex denmark open. Peter Gade had to withdraw from the denmark open in 2010 with an injury. on the other hand the dane showed during the World championship in London, that the shape is excellent, and that he can can challenge the very best. - My greatest victory will be if I can deliver the level I had in London. I have not reached the level at denmark open, so it’s my goal. If I make it to the semi final at Yonex denmark open, I’m happy. If I make it to the semi finals, I’ll go for the title. It’s a great opportunity to continue those good rates from the World championship, Peter Gade says before Yonex denmark open 2011.


SERIØSE CHANCE FOR GADE Peter Gade vandt sit første Danish Open i 1998. 13 år senere er han klar til at gå efter sin sidste Yonex Denmark Open-titel. Badminton Danmark tog en snak med Peter Gade om Denmark Open. AF RASMUS BECH

Hans første store turnering på dansk grund kan han knap nok selv huske. Han første sejr ved danmark open, dengang danish open, var i 1998. 13 år senere er Peter Gade klar til den turnering, der med stor sandsynlighed bliver hans sidste. en ting er dog sikker: det er sidste gang, han tror på den store hjemmebanesejr. - Hvis jeg stiller op til denmark open efter OL, så bliver det med en anden indgang, end jeg har i år. I år er den sidste seriøse chance for at få titlen for mig, siger Peter Gade forud for Yonex denmark open. den rutinerede dansker er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at det bliver en turnering med brag i. - det bliver uhyggeligt svært at vinde. det bliver det stærkeste felt, vi måske nogensinde har haft. det er godt for danmark, selvom det bliver sværere for os. Vi skal være glade, hvis vi har danskere med fremme, siger Peter Gade.

- selvfølgelig er det specielt, at hver gang jeg kommer et sted, så er det sidste gang, jeg skal spille der. denmark open er også speciel, fordi det er vores turnering, siger Peter Gade. VIL RAMME VM-NIVEAUET odense Idræts Park lægger gulv og bygning til Yonex denmark open. Peter Gade måtte trække sig fra denmark open i 2010 med en skade. til gengæld viste danskeren under VM, at formen er i top, og at han kan spille op med de bedste. - Min største sejr vil være, hvis jeg kan levere det spil, som jeg havde til VM. det har jeg ikke formået til denmark open, så det er mit mål. Når jeg en semifinale i Yonex denmark open, så er jeg glad. Når jeg semifinalen, så går jeg efter at komme hele vejen. det er en fed mulighed for at fortsætte de gode takter fra VM, siger Peter Gade før Yonex denmark open 2011.

EN SPØJS TURNERING Peter Gade er en af verdenens mest vindende badmintonspillere. denmark open har dog aldrig været en turnering, som Peter Gade har haft nærmest patent på, ligesom som han har haft på copenhagen Masters og dM. - denmark open er en lidt spøjs turnering for mig. I en tidlig alder ramte jeg et overraskende højt niveau i den her turnering. Jeg har villet vinde turneringen, hver gang jeg stillede op, men det har været lidt aparte. der har været mange forskellige årsager til, jeg ikke har vundet oftere. der er mange ting, der skal gå op i en højere enhed, hvis man skal vinde denmark open, og de ting har så bare ikke gået min vej så ofte, siger Peter Gade. Peter Gade har vundet Denmark Open tre gange, i 1998, 2000 og 2008, men det er ikke kun sejrene, Peter Gade mindes, når han ser tilbage på sin denmark open-karriere. - Jeg har spillet nogle gode kampe mod dong Jiong, som jeg er stolte af. både finalen som jeg vandt i 1998, men også finalen, jeg tabte til ham i 1997, siger Peter Gade. turneringen i odense kan meget vel blive Gades sidste Yonex denmark open. det bliver først i 2012 afgjort, om herresinglen stiller op til næste års turnering. og det er da lidt specielt erkender danmarks måske bedste herresingle gennem tiderne.

Facts about Peter Gade

For autoGraPHs


THE GREATEST OF THE GREATEST Men’s Single row in this year’s Yonex Denmark Open is stronger than long seen. BY R A S M U S B E C H



(MALAYSIA), 28 YEARS (BIRTHDAY 21.10.2011) NO. 1 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Winner of the denmark open in 2005 and is on to rematch after the World cup final defeat to Lin dan. obviously a player, you should expect among the very last, when the weekend’s games are played. He has an excellent offensive, but the nerves have previously played him a pus when it mattered. so far three super series and a Premier series victory in 2011.

(DENMARK) 23 YEARS NO. 13 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Last year Jan Ø. Jørgensen won his first super series tournament when he defeated taufik Hidyat in the final at denmark open. Jan Ø. didn’t play at the World championship caused to an injury, but now the young profile is ready to battle against the best. and the young profile needs a good result to get closer to the next year’s olympic tournament.



(CHINA), 28 YEARS NO. 2 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) World champion in 2011. the chinese has been a profile in the last ten years, and Lin dan is struggling to be the first to win two olympic gold medals in a row. the chinese profile has good experiences from denmark. He won denmark open in 2003, 2004 and 2007. World champion in 2006, 2007, 2009 and then latest in London.

(INDONESIA) 26 YEARS NO. 15 WORLD RANKINGT (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) an outsider for the title of Yonex denmark open the 2011. during the World cup in London he pushed Peter Gade in a close and tough match in the third round where he might stretch the arms in three sets. Was last in denmark in 2009, when he went all the way and beat German Marc Zwiebler in the final.

PETER GADE (DENMARK), 34 YEARS NO. 4 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) do-champion in 1998, 2000 and 2008. on paper the best bet for a danish win in odense. at the World championships in London Gade showed, that he is still among the very best and at his last denmark open you can expect, that the danish profile can provide some valuable olympic points on home ground.


CHEN JIN (CHINA) 25 YEARS NO. 6 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) the chinese underdog who has everything to revenge after an unauthorized World championship. His last performance in denmark was in 2008 when Peter Gade sent him home after the quarterfinals. chen Jin has never been among the last four in the denmark open, and he is a player who can be like night and day.

DE STØRSTE AF DE STØRSTE Herresinglerækken i dette års Yonex Denmark Open er stærkere end længe set. AF RASMUS BECH

Lee Chong Wei

Jan Ø. Jørgensen

(MALAYSIA) 28 ÅR (29 ÅR DEN 21. OKTOBER) NR. 1 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Vinder af denmark open i 2005 og på jagt efter oprejsning efter VM-finalenederlaget til Lin dan. er klart en spiller, man skal forvente blandt de allersidste, når weekendens kampe spilles. Har en fremragende offensiv, men nerverne har tidligere spillet ham et pus, når det gjaldt. Har indtil videre tre superserie- og en Premier serie-sejr på 2011-cV’et.

(DANMARK) 23 ÅR NR. 13 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) sidste år vandt Jan Ø. Jørgensen sin første super serieturnering, da han slog taufik Hidyat i denmark open-finalen. Jan Ø. måtte melde fra til VM med en skade, men nu er den unge profil klar til at tage kampen op imod de bedste. og den unge profil har brug for et godt resultat for at komme tættere på en plads i næste års oL-turnering.

Lin Dan

Simon Santoso

(KINA) 28 ÅR NR. 2 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Verdensmester i 2011. Kineseren har om nogen været en profil gennem de sidste ti år, og Lin dan kæmper for at blive den første til at vinde to oL-guldmedaljer i træk. den kinesiske profil har gode erfaringer fra det danske. Han vandt denmark open i 2003, 2004 og 2007. Verdensmester i 2006, 2007, 2009 og senest altså i London.

(INDONESIEN) 26 ÅR NR. 15 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) en outsider til titlen som Yonex denmark open 2011. under VM i London pressede han Peter Gade i en tæt og hård kamp i tredje runde, hvor han dog måtte strække våben i tre sæt. Var sidst i danmark i 2009, hvor han gik hele vejen og slog tyske Marc Zwiebler i finalen.

Peter Gade (DANMARK) 34 ÅR NR. 4 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) do-mester i 1998, 2000 og i 2008. På papiret danmarks bedste bud på en vinder i odense. Ved VM i London viste Gade, at han stadig er blandt de absolut bedste, og ved hans sidste denmark open kan man godt tillade sig at forvente, at den rutinerede profil kan sikre sig værdifulde oL-point på hjemmebanen.


Chen Jin (KINA) 25 ÅR NR. 6 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Kinesernes underdog, som har alt at revanchere efter et ikke godkendt VM. spillede sidst i danmark i 2008, hvor Peter Gade sendte ham hjem i kvartfinalen. chen Jin er aldrig kommet blandt de sidste fire i denmark open, og han er en spiller, der kan være som nat og dag. chen Jin kan besejres, men han kan også spille fantastik.

(CHINA) 25 YEARS OLD NO. 1 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) she was crowned world champion ealier this year, and has proved at the super series, that her place as the number one is rightly hers. the victories at the asia championships and Indonesia open shows her strenghts, and she must be considered as one of the big favorites to win denmark open.

(INDIA) 21 YEARS OLD NO. 4 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) there are lots of expectations to young saina Newahl from India. she has reached great results this year with to second places at Malaysia and Indonesia open. Furthermore she achieved the gold medal at swiss open. a player that can’t be underestimated.



(CHINA) 21 YEARS OLD NO. 2 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) despite her young age she is already established among the best players in the world. Wang shixian won the prestigious all england title and china Masters earlier this year, so she arrives to denmark open with lots of confidence and belief.

(DEUTCHLAND) 29 YEARS OLD NO. 6 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) the German surprised everyone when she reached the semi finals at the World championship in London. Juliane schenk has not yet won one of the big tournaments, but matches against the best chinese players show, that she is getting closer and closer. could be an outsider to this years denmark open.

WANG XIN (CHINA) 26 YEARS OLD NO. 3 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) two super series victories in singapore and Malaysia and a bronxe medal at the World championship shows, that Wang Xin is a player who knows what it takes to make it to the top. she was earlier ranked as number one, and must be considered to be among the favorites at denmark open.

TINE BAUN (DENMARK) 32 YEARS OLD NO. 8 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OCTOBER 2011) tine baun won denmark open in 2009, and even though she has not won any super series tournaments this year, the audience can expect the dane to go all in for the medals. It could benefit tine baun that she is playing this tournament on home ground.

STORE OPGØR I VENTE Der bliver kamp til stregen, når de bedste damesingler skal kæmpe om sejren ved Yonex Denmark Open. A F A N D E R S DA L L



(KINA) 25 ÅR NR. 1 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Hun blev verdensmester tidligere på året og har ved flere lejligheder vist, at førstepladsen på verdensranglisten er berettiget. sejre i super series turneringerne i 2011 vidner om kineserens styrke, og hun må anses som en af de helt store favoritter til at snuppe titlen i danmark.

(INDIEN) 21 ÅR NR. 4 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) der er store forventninger til Indiens helt store stjernespiller på kvindesiden. den unge inder har opnået flotte resultater i år med to finalepladser i Malaysia og Indonesia open. derudover strøg hun helt til tops i swiss open. bestemt en spiller de andre ikke skal undervurdere.



(KINA) 21 ÅR NR. 2 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Har trods sin unge alder allerede etableret sig i verdenseliten. Wang shixian har alene i 2011 spillet sig til all england sejr og flere super series sejre heriblandt china Masters, så kineseren kommer til denmark open med masser af selvtillid i bagagen.

(TYSKLAND) 29 ÅR NR. 6 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) tyskeren overraskede mange ved at spille sig i semifinalen til VM. Mangler endnu den helt store sejr i super series regi, men har ved flere lejligheder presset de sejrsvante kinesere ud i helt tætte kampe. Kan få en jokerrolle ved denmark open.



(KINA) 26 ÅR NR. 3 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) to super series sejre i singapore og Malaysia samt en bronzemedalje ved VM viser, at Wang Xin er en spiller, der ved, hvad der skal til for at nå helt til tops. Har tidligere ligget nummer et på verdensranglisten og er et godt bud på en spiller, der kan komme langt til denmark open.

(DANMARK) 32 ÅR NR. 8 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) danmarks bedste bud på en sejr i damesingle. tine baun vandt denmark open i 2009, og selv om resultaterne i super series turneringerne i 2011 endnu ikke har ført hende helt til tops, så kan publikum forvente en tine baun, der vil række ud efter medaljerne. og så er hun på hjemmebane.

THERE WILL BE BATTLE FOR THE TITLE The top in men’s doubles is close and you can expect many close matches at Yonex Denmark Open. BY R A S M U S B E C H



(CHINA) 27/31 YEARS NO. 1 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) on the paper the best men’s doubles of the world. they are winning almost everything they play. among other titles four World championship titles. together the two chinese have played denmark open twice in 2007 and 2008. both years they reached the semifinals, where in 2007 they lost in three sets to Martin Lundgaard/Jens eriksen from denmark.

(MALAYSIA) 26/24 YEARS NO. 5 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) a highly experienced couples who have done well when they have been in denmark. the two Malays won denmark open in 2007 and 2009, and in 2011 theywon Malaysia GP and reached the finals of the Yonex all england, where they lost to boe / Mogensen. Got World championship silver in 2010 and won the asian Games in 2006.



(KOREA) 23/29 YEARS NO. 2 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) olympic champions in beijing from 2008. Has never won the denmark open, but they showed at the World championship in London, that everybody can expect that they will play up the other favorites. they won the Korea open Premier earlier this year but has also had some sobering defeat in the big tournaments.

(INDONESIA) 24/?? YEARS NO. 6 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Indonesia’s probably the best bet for a win and an outsider for the title in odense. Indonesians reached the semifinals at this year’s World championship, where they among other struck boe/Mogensen and Guo Zhengdong/chai biao. they reached the semifinals at Malaysia super series and Indonesia Premier. they have had some remarkable failures but also impressive victories in 2011.

CARSTEN MOGENSEN/MATHIAS BOE (DENMARK) 28/31 YEARS NO. 3 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) the defending all england champions are ready to repeat last year’s victory from the home ground. the World championship was not quite as hoped for the danish profiles, and revenge urge is great. boe and Mogensen has during the last years shown that they are among the very best. denmark’s best bet for a win in men’s doubles.

SUNG HYUN KO/YOO YEON SEONG (KOREA) 24/25 YEARS NO. 4 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Korea’s second strong men’s doubles, which reached the World championship final in London in august. Has shown stability in 2011, where they often are among the quarter-finals and the weekend’s matches. the major finding is absent in 2011, when it just turned into a victory to swiss open for the two Koreans.

DER BLIVER KAMP OM TITLEN Toppen i herredouble er tæt, og man kan forvente mange tætte kampe. AF RASMUS BECH

Vinder stort set alt de stiller op i, hvilket deres fire VM-titler også vidner om. de to kinesere har sammen spillet denmark open to gange i 2007 og 2008. begge år nåede de semifinalen, hvor de i 2007 tabte i tre sæt til Martin Lundgaard/Jens eriksen.

(MALAYSIA) 26/24 ÅR NR. 5 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) et yderst rutineret par, som har gjort det godt, når de har været i danmark. de to malajer vandt i 2007 og 2009 denmark open, og i 2011 har de blandt andet vundet Malaysia GP og nået finalen i Yonex all england, hvor de tabte til boe/Mogensen.

CARSTEN MOGENSEN/MATHIAS BOE (DANMARK) 28/31 ÅR NR. 3 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) de forsvarende all england-mestre er klar til at gentage sidste års sejr fra hjemmebanen. VM blev ikke helt som håbet for de danske profiler, og revanchelysten er stor. boe og Mogensen har gennem de sidste år vist, at de er blandt de allerbedste. danmarks bedste bud på en vinder i herredouble.

SUNG HYUN KO/YEON SEONG YOO (KOREA) 24/25 ÅR NR. 4 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Koreas anden stærke herredouble, som nåede VM-finalen i London.

(DENMARK) 27 YEARS/25 YEARS NO. 12 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) the two doubles specialists are the best bet for a top spot from denmark. With a quarter-final at Japan open they showed that they can play with the best. their best result is a semifinal in French open 2010, while they want to do good in denmark open 2011 after the first round exit in last year’s denmark open.

(JAPAN) 23 YEARS/22 YEARS NO. 3 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) one form strong pair from Japan, who on a good day can play against the very best. the biggest victory of the year is a victory in German open, but the pair has also reached the final at the all england and semi-finals at Japan open, china Masters, Indonesia open and singapore open. In 2010 the two Japanese reached the semi-finals of the denmark open.

(KOREA) 24 YEARS/25 YEARS NO. 6 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Korea’s best bet for a winner.

HVEM RYSTER KINESERNE? Kineserne er storfavoritter i damedoublerækken, men de kan overrumples. AF RASMUS BECH



(KINA) 25 ÅR/22 ÅR NR.1 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Verdens bedste damedouble. en duo, der vinder stort set alt, hvad de stiller op til. I 2011 kan de skrive sejre i VM, all england, de asiatiske Mesterskaber, Korea open, Indonesia open og super serie-finalerne på cV’et. de nåede tilmed også finalen i china Masters og i Malaysia open.

(TAIWAN) 28 ÅR/29 ÅR NR.5 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) et par som ikke har de store sejre på cV’et i 2011. en sejr i JaPaN oPeN(tJeK)/Finale i JaPaN oPeN(tJeK) er årets bedste resultat for de to rutinerede doublespillere, som også nåede semifinalen ved taiwan open og Korea open. de skal dog ikke undervurderes, da de tidligere har slået de gode kinesiske par.



(KINA) 25 ÅR/25 ÅR NR.2 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Kinas næstbedste damedouble, der dog har vist at de kan slås. Pedersen/rytter Juhl slog parret i Japan open, men de har også leveret i 2011. Med en sejr i singapore open, thailand open, Malaysia open og finaler til VM, de asiatiske Mesterskaber og i Korea open har de vist, at hvis man ikke er 110 procent klar, så er de der.

(KOREA) 24 ÅR/25 ÅR NR.6 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Koreas bedste bud på en vinder. Har fire gange i 2011 været blandt de sidste otte i de store turneringer, mens de også har vundet taiwan open, us open og swiss open. Parret har døjet med skader, men har i 2011 vist, at de også vil være med i kampen om præmiepenge.


(DANMARK) 27 ÅR/25 ÅR NR.12 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) de to doublespecialister er danmarks bedste bud på en topplacering. Med en flot kvartfinale i Japan open viste de, at de kan drille de helt store. danskernes bedste resultat er en semifinale i French open 2010, mens de har revanche til gode efter exit i 1. runde i sidste års denmark open.

(JAPAN) 23 ÅR/22 ÅR NR.3 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) et formstærkt par fra Japan, som på en god dag kan være med mod de allerbedste. Årets største sejr er en sejr i German open, men parret har også nået finalen ved all england og semifinalen i Japan open, china Masters, Indonesia open og singapore open. de to japanere nåede i 2010 semifinalen i denmark open.

IT’S GOING TO BE A CLOSE RACE The Chinese are strong in the mix, but the Europeans are not to underestimate. BY R A S M U S B E C H



(CHINA) 24/25 YEARS NO. 1 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) World number one and defending world champions from the World championships in London 2011. the duo are incredibly stable and in 2011 they have demonstrated that they are ready when it counts. the two chinese have won two Premier victories in Indonesia and Korea and World cup victory. they also won the asian championship in this year.

(DENMARK) 34/27 YEARS NO. 11 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) defending champions from 2010 who also won in 2005. In 2011 the former world champions from 2009 were plagued by injuries. the ultimate goal for the duo is the olympics in London next year, but Yonex denmark open will also be special. the two danes may be just the fourth pair to win the tournament three times.



(INDONESIA) 26/24 YEARS NO. 2 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) Indonesia’s ”new” mix double. Liliyana Natsir has throughout the six or seven years been in the world top with Nova Widianto. Now she forms the pair on the pitch with tantowi ahmad, and the duo have been good for the Indonesians. In 2011, they collected a World championship bronze and wins in singapore, Malaysia GP and in India ss.

(ENGLAND/SCOTLAND) 22/23 YEARS NO. 15 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) World championship silver winners from the World championship on home ground. a strong couple, who have shown that it’s not only the danish mix double who can play at the top of the elite. the duo from the uK has not won the greatest victory, but they are outsiders for the title in odense.

JOACHIM FISCHER/CHRISTINNA PEDERSEN (DENMARK) 32/25 YEARS NO. 3 WORLD RANKING (FROM 1. OKTOBER 2011) another good bet for a danish winner. the danes are lustful for revenge after the World championship in London, and with Joachim Fischer fit for fight you can have expectations for the two danes. Fischer and Pedersen won the denmark open in 2008 and 2009. other major titles: World championship bronze in 2009, while they also have won the super series Finals in 2009 and Hong Kong ss in 2010.

OGSÅ TÆT MIXEDDOUBLE I VENTE Kineserne er stærke i mix, men de europæiske duoer skal alt andet end undervurderes. AF RASMUS BECH



(KINA) 24/25 ÅR NR. 1 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Verdenens nummer et og forsvarende verdensmestre fra VM i London 2011. duoen er utrolig stabil og har i 2011 vist, at de er der, når det gælder. de to kinesere har foruden de to Premiersejre i Indonesien og Korea og VM-sejren også vundet det asiatiske mesterskab i 2011.

(DANMARK) 34/27 ÅR NR. 11 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Forsvarende mestre fra 2010, som også vandt i 2005. I 2011 har de tidligere verdensmestre fra 2009 været plaget af skader. det ultimative mål for duoen er oL i London til næste år, men Yonex denmark open bliver også speciel. de to danskere kan blive det blot fjerde par til at vinde turneringen tre gange.



(INDONESIEN) 26/24 ÅR NR. 2 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) Indonesiens ”nye” mixdouble. Liliyana Natsir har igennem de seks-syv år været med i verdenstoppen sammen med Nova Widianto. Nu danner hun par på banen med tantowi ahmad, og duoen har været god for indoneserne. I 2011 har de hentet en VM-bronze og sejre i singapore, Malaysia GP og i India ss.

(ENGLAND/SKOTLAND) 22/23 ÅR NR. 15 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) VM-sølvvindere fra VM på hjemmebane. et formstærkt par, der har vist, at det ikke kun er de danske mixdoubler, der kan spille med i toppen af eliten. duoen fra storbritannien mangler stadig den helst store sejr, men de er outsidere til titlen i odense.

JOACHIM FISCHER/CHRISTINNA PEDERSEN (DANMARK) 32/25 ÅR NR. 3 PÅ VERDENSRANGLISTEN (PR. 1. OKTOBER 2011) et andet godt dansk bud på en vinder. danskerne er revanchelystne efter VM i London, og med Joachim Fischer skadesfri kan man godt regne med de to danskere. Fischer og Pedersen vandt denmark open i 2008 og 2009. af andre store meritter kan nævnes VM-bronze i 2009, mens de også har vundet super serie-finalerne i 2009 og Hongkong ss i 2010.
