On Saturday, Viktor Axelsen has reached the final of the Barcelona Spain Masters, after his opponent, Ren Pengbo from China, suffered an injury in the third game.
 

The match between the Dane and the Chinese lasted 47 minutes, before Ren Pengbo fell to the ground and injured his right foot.

Viktor Axelsen immediately ran to the other side of the court, underneath the net, to check on his opponent.

Tomorrow, Axelsen is playing in the final in Barcelona. His opponent is either his compatriot, Anders Antonsen, or Zhao Jungpeng from China, who are both playing against each other later today.
