The Danish Badminton Open ended its semi-final contest yesterday. Denmark's top player Antonsen defeated the world's second-ranked Chinese Taipei player Zhou Tiancheng and will compete with teammate Gemke for the men's singles championship.
As Asian strong teams retired, only the men's singles contest in yesterday's semi-final was held between the two top players in the world. The 23-year-old Antonsen is one of the best young players in the world of badminton. He won the runner-up of the World Championships last year. Facing the 30-year-old veteran Zhou Tiancheng, Antonsen played even better at home, winning straight games 21-17 and 21-15. Another Danish player Gemk defeated Japanese player Kenta Nishimoto 21-14, 21-17, reaching the final of the Super 750 event for the first time.

The Danish player has won the Danish Open men's singles championship. This is also the first time a Danish men's singles player has won the Danish Open after a lapse of 10 years. The Danish player Jorgensen, who stopped in the quarter-finals and announced his bid farewell to his career, won the Danish Open men's singles championship in 2010.
The two women's singles semifinals are strong and weak. The second-seeded Japanese star Okuhara hopes to sweep Canadian Li Wenshan 21-10, 21-7, reaching the final for the first time this season. She will compete with the Spanish star Marin, who eliminated German Li Yifeng 21-17, 21-11, and reached the women's singles final for the third time this year, striving for the first championship of the season.
Japan's two pairs of the world's top women's doubles also have obvious advantages. Yuki Fukushima/Sayaka Hirota defeated the Danish combination Busch/Schultz 21-18, 21-6, and Mayu Matsumoto/Wakana Nagahara 21-17 , 21 to 8 defeated the Stoeva sisters of Bulgaria.
日本的两双世界顶级女子双打也有明显的优势。福岛由纪/ Sayaka Hirota以21-18、21-6击败了丹麦组合Busch / Schultz，而21-17、21-8的Mayu Matsumoto / Wakana Nagahara击败了保加利亚的Stoeva姐妹。
