    Not surprising for me. I saw a changed Axelsen from his last match against Momota

    Absolutely unreal performance by VA. Even during his desperate shots, they were going into such a fine margin

    VA totally deserved it. I cheered for CL, but hats off to Viktor. He put a stamp on an amazing year he's having.

    Great to see that exchange between the two. And what a reaction from Axelsen - must've had a mental wall of steel to keep his focus the entire match and hold back that amount of emotions

    I have been routing for Chen Long like a maniac over those last 50 minutes or so, but the reaction of Viktor and the hugs with CL afterwards had me in tears, great job by Viktor, he earned it:oops:

    There you go, Viktor. More like LD’s golden heroics in Beijing ‘08.

    CL played quite well this tournament. Not well enough to manage Viktor

    Momo texting VA in 2014... "see my Thomas Cup gold medal". VA led Denmark to Thomas Cup victory in 2016.

    VA texting Momo in 2017... "see my WC gold medal". Momo won WC in 2018 and again in 2019.

    VA texting Momo in 2021... "see my Olympic gold medal". Momo :mad:, damn next Olympics in 2024.
