    I don't understand the logic??? In this case, it should affect his performance against BCL (which Viktor won) instead of another day later (where he could have another nite to catch up enough rest with good sleep)???

    In fact, Viktor did say BCL was his idol since his childhood, therefore he had watched video of BCL's matches for many many years. Yet BCL knew almost nothing about him. Maybe this is the reason why VA beat BCL. So if BCL knows VA more, I don't think VA would win. :D

    ... Anyway, you could not always have matches with both opponents at 100% form. Ability of awareness and adjustment of your form, adjustment of the way you play when knowing form of yourself and the opponent is also reflecting a player's capability and also an essential part in assessing whether a player is great or just good...

    Well, VA already played 2 extra matches in qualifying thus his 5th match versus WZM s 3rd, so he has two choices against young gun WZM (whose game is not in any syllabus yet, so no pre- coaching possible): Either finish it quick and win or lose OR lose for sure.

    It seems as if you don't have much experience in playing with no sleep!? ;)

    The deficit on sleep often doesn't affect the body immediately the day after. It comes into play when the tension goes away and the body is able to take what it needs.

    so you did? a lot? or just from theory?

    I did and do, did a lot even after without a sleep overnite in fact... particularly when young... and not just "playing" after no-sleep nite.

    from my own vast experience, it did come into effect if you go to vigorous physical action like this kind of high level competition... it would delay if not this case..

    of course everyone's physical conditions might differs you might argue... :D

    Yes, because it is a PREMIER Super series event.

    So then let's go with your theory: A tired VA beat BCL in 2 straight games, but lost back in form to WZM. BTW: What a nice compliment to BCL! ;)

    my impression is that VA is much more agressive than PG. When PG loves to play a beautiful game, VA hates to loose that game. VA shows partly the same egocentric attitude of self confidence as Lin Dan, Muhamed Ali or Bobby Fisher. This and
    his talent could make him No 1 in two or three years... Let's see :cool:

    as VA himself said, he is a fan of BCL since childhood, therefore already studied BCL's game for years...

    this could be a better compliment to BCL. see how they work in the next meeting...

    First Bao, now Taufik! I'd say Taufik is now one of the weaker players in the world top 20 but it is still an achievement. Gade next you would think, will be a much tougher test.

    I believe that VA's next opponent (at the Quarter-Finals) could be Peter Gade. :):):)

    Axelsen “Most promising player”

    Danish Viktor Axelsen is the most promising talent in the world according to the International Badminton Federation


    He is the defending world champion for young people, and he also has won the latest edition of the European Championship. He has been in a quarterfinal in a Premier, and there is no doubt that Viktor Axelsen from Odense is a huge talent.

    The young Danish talent was Sunday in prior to the Yonex Denmark Open Finals presented as "The most promising player 2010" by the International Badminton Federation BWF.

    - This award means a lot to me. This means that there are people who follow me and enjoy watching my game, and it is obviously nice, Axelsen says.

    Title gives confidence
    - It's always nice when someone likes your game, and it gives confidence and energy to continue to train and work hard. I can use the title to think that there are people who appreciate what I do for the sport, and that I appreciate.

    Monday Viktor Axelsen and Danish youth national are leaving for Chinese Taipei to play the World Championship. And he has large expectations.

    - I want to focus on winning the matches that I should play, but it is clear that the award here also leads me to believe extra that I can do it again. I will do everything to defend my world title, says Axelsen.
