the 26-year-old Abreu has often been absent in DM in recent years due to injuries, but in the finals in Aarhus, he left no doubt that he would have the title with the home in 2020.

His eight year older opponent, Hans-Kristian Vittinghus, was not left a glimpse of a chance to take home his first CHAMPIONSHIPS title in his career.

He was well with in the first ten duels of both sets, but then showed Abreu, as he has shown in the other matches at DM, he was in a class of its own.

With the last three year's champion Anders Antonsens sensational exit in the quarter-finals was Axelsen clear favorite, and he lived up to.

Vittinghus could not break through Abreu, who put on a strong defensive, up and at the same time even all the time offered with its versatile arsenal of dangerous angrebsslag.

By staying mid-point in both sets had Axelsen opened a hole, as Vittinghus never was close to closing.

Despite the splendid fight of Vittinghus could Axelsen not be touched.

Down with 9-16 in the second set got Vittinghus an injury in the thigh, and by 9-18, he had to go up to the net and say thank you for the fight a little before time so as not to aggravate the injury.

Abreu could step on the top step of the podium after the game and continue to work towards the season's first really big goal, the All England in march.

the Final of the ladies ' was somewhat closer, as the 20-year-old Line Christophersen took its first CHAMPIONSHIPS title with victory at 21-16, 22-20 Julie Dawall Jakobsen.

Mixeddoublefinalen was a close affair, where Niclas Nøhr and Sara Thygesen ended up taking the win by 15-21, 21-18, 21-19 over Mathias Christiansen and Alexandra Bend.

Despite the choknederlaget in DM-final could be the WORLD cup-sølvmedaljetageren Anders Antonsen Saturday to comfort himself with the crowning of the year badminton player in Denmark until 2019.
