Victor Korea Open Super Series Premier 2011 – Mens Doubles Finals

January 30, 2011

I was excited to see the mens finals between Lee Yong Dae & Jung Jae Sung vs Mathias Boe & Carsten Mogensen prior to the match.. I expected to see a hard fought game and somehow it didnt live to my expectations.

Lee Yong Dae & Jung Jae Sung were playing with their fans behind them while the Danes are the current World No. 1 coming into this game. The Koreans were not playing a very aggresive game while the Danes were doing most of the smashing. Unfortunately for the Danes, their smashes didn’t have the sting to win points or if you look at it in the other side, the Koreans were good at defending. Not only were they good at defending, they converted a defensive play to an attacking one which helped them win the game.

On top of that, the Danes were making mistakes which was suprising to me as when you are World No. 1 you should not make these mistakes in the finals. Not to say the Danes were playing a Malaysian pair in their homesoil with 5,000 fans shouting at their backs… I guess maybe the Danes were tired coming into the game.

The Koreans won the 2nd consecutive Korean Super Series 21-6, 21-13 in 33 minutes. We hope to see more of them this year..
