Congrats to Viktor Axelsen for winning the WJC 2010. He is surely a man to watch in the future. Well done.

For his age group, he's the best of the bunch in the world..
One would think playing a faster or flatter game might rattle him. But in a couple of this yr's WJC matches, i noticed his opponents tried to inject a faster pace or more drives rather than lifts or clear, yet he's able to counter them pretty well.
- Yes, he does use a bit of hold-and-flick shots and wrist shots; racket skills are definitely very good. He has a pretty good touch also. But the thing which surprised me was his poise and composure in all of his matches, whether he was leading or trailing behind in pts. Almost never a sense of panic from his part throughout the entire match.
One thing to note though, he lost to MAS' Zulfadli in a Danish tourney a while back. Perhaps this time around Viktor ran to opponents more to his advantage.
Hope to see him more in international tourneys soon (i think that's the only way for him to truly learn & improve) and slay some of the world's top MS players..

Thanks for the info...
Like you sayhe is the best of the bunch, but it is how he develops physically& mentally which will make or break him. I hope he does, it is nice to see different type/style of players.

Perhaps he's brilliant in junior category because is taller than opponents... At this age it makes the difference in power and ability to control the game..

When did he lose to Zulfadli? I know he has improven a lot since summer.
@Thom_bad: He has beaten quite a few good senior players also this year also so it is not only at junior level. Since Christmas he has beaten Sune Gavnholt, Peter Rasmussen, Christian Lind Thomsen, Scott Evans, Henri Hurskainen, Matthieu Lo Ying Ping, and Kasper Ipsen. I don't know if any of them are particularly tall though but they are ranked fairly high with four in top 50.

Victor has just been picked for the Thomas Cup team - replacing an injured Hans-Kristian Vittinghus.
