    Started his commentary career today aswell, commentating with gill on the HKV v Tago match. Was quite informative to have a current top players view about the match and tactics.

    Yes, it was a pleasant surprise to hear him commentating with Gill today. What is it with Danish players being good commentators as well? Both VA as well as HKV, along with Morten Frost, are all quite natural; only Poul-Erik is a bit bland.

    I certainly hope they do well in their future tournaments, but I won't mind if VA and HKV get the opportunity to be chatty and informative on air; anything to save us from that terrible Richard Kaufman!

    Worth a mention in the Adidas thread.

    It's very good to see this. Is it part of BWF's new publicity for players initiative?

    Good to see him commentating on matches. They should incorporate more (active) players into commentary, I think. Would be very interesting.

    BWF website. See the news. There are incentives for players to attend media events.

    I can't see the link but, is that why Axelsen was commentating for Vittinghus's game recently?

    Thanks. http://www.bwfbadminton.org/news_item.aspx?id=84522

    Well it's a good initiative if that's the cause. If it is the case they must tip Axelsen for top 10 this year. Seems too intelligent for BWF to be involved.

    Looks like Viktor is no longer with Adidas. He is back with Yonex now. Guess Adidas is pulling out of badminton sport.

    Players can change contract. Not sure how one player changing contract equates with pulling out of the sport. Need to see more evidence.

    Courtesy of The Star :

    Ni Hao! Axelsen learns the language of badminton

    by kng zheng guan

    Denmark's Viktor Axelsen during the World championships in Copenhagen in August this year. - AFP

    ODENSE: Communication skill is just as vital as good technique to becoming a great player.

    And rising Danish star Viktor Axelsen is perfectly aware of that.

    So, it was no surprise to see the 20-year-old who is enjoying a breakthrough year after bagging a bronze medal in the World Championships in August, having a short conversation with five-time world champion Lin Dan in Mandarin at the ongoing Denmark Open here.

    Axelsen explained on Wednesday that learning Mandarin was part of his plan to take his game up to the next level.

    “It was Lin Dan’s birthday (on Tuesday) and I wanted to wish him happy birthday in Mandarin,” said world No. 11 Axelsen, who has one title to his name this year – the Swiss Open.

    “One of the reasons I picked up Mandarin is that we travel to China a lot for competitions... it’s very useful to know the language.

    “I’ve been learning it for eight months now and I speak to the Chinese players every now and then.

    “I have a Chinese teacher in Copenhagen. I also signed up with an institute in Beijing and I have conversational lessons via Skype.

    “I think the hardest part about learning Mandarin is that you need a lot of practice... a bit like badminton. It is a tough language... although I’m not very good yet, I’m getting better.

    “Ultimately, I think learning the language will help me in my badminton career... although I’m not sure how yet,” added Axelsen, who will take on world champion Chen Long in the first round in front of his hometown supporters.

    Lin Dan sees huge potential in Axelsen and has tipped the Dane to be a major force in the future.

    “Viktor has unlimited potential ... he’s without doubt one of the brightest young players from Europe. He’s young and energetic and I hope he will go on to have a successful career like Peter (Gade-Christensen),” said Lin Dan on Wednesday.

    Perhaps our Malaysian youngsters can learn a thing or two from Axelsen about attitude and commitment.

    The likes of Zulfadli Zulkiffli, Soo Teck Zhi and Soong Joo Ven, to name a few, are not lacking in talent. All they need is the same attitude in relentlessly striving for excellence.

    I just saw the page of Axelsen on SunriseClick

    http://www.sunriseclick.com/athletes/#Viktor-Axelsen

    And surprisingly, the material still shows him with Adidas shoe. Not sure if he prefers Adidas shoes than Yonex.
