At day four of the French Open the Danish players showed, that they are not ready to leave Paris. 

The first win of the night came when Anders Antonsen won in two sets against NG La Long Angus from Hong Kong. 

The Danish international carried on his good performance after getting the better of Olympic’s 2016 Champion Chen Long on Thursday. Antonsen won the first set pretty comfortably after a 21-16 victory. The first game was the Dane’s from the first point as he took the lead and Angus was chasing the game from then on.

The second game was much more one sided at first as Antonsen came from behind to be winning 1-5 and then went on to win by the same score to seal the match, in a game that took just over three quarters of an hour to complete.

Also success in mixed doubles
In other matches, the mixed doubles was also a win for Denmark as Mathias Christiansen and Christinna Pedersen took the win against their opponents from Thailand Dechapol Puavaranukroh and Puttita Supajirakul.

The Danish pair went behind from the start as they were beaten 13-21 in a game that they were eight points behind at one point. But they showed everyone what they could do when in the second game it was the same score with a reverse effect.

After going six points up, the Danes were able to take the match to a third set after beating their opponents 21-13. The third game was the closest out of all three, with Christiansen and Pedersen going ahead, their Thai opponents came back into the game. With a good finish the Danes took the deciding game and won 2119.

Boe and Mogensen also ready for semi-finals
The other success by Denmark was thanks to number two seed Mathias Boe and his pairing partner Carsten Mogensen, in the mens doubles. Again in a match that took three games to complete.

The Danes took a healthy lead with a 21-5 win over their opponents from India, Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty. Unfortunately their opponents came back in the second game to take the match all the way with a 17-21 win over Boe and Morgensen.

The third set was a reasonably comfortable win for the two from Denmark with a 21-17 win over their opponents to finish off the Danish success in day tour of the French Open.
