The support from home 

After returning from Asia, Axelsen is happy to be back on court in Europe: 

- I enjoy playing at home, it is very special for me and it is a great experience every time. I thank all the fans for coming here today. 

- When I was laying behind in the second game, I thought that I cannot disappoint all these people in the hall. And luckily, I ended up with a good result. 

In the next round, Axelsen is facing his Danish team mate, Anders Antonsen, who won against Mark Caljouw after a close match.

- I just prepare for the match in the best possible way. I am excited for tomorrow and hope the crowd will be awesome again, Axelsen said.
