Copenhagen: Despite being crowned the Danish badminton player of the year of 2014 on December 28, world number three Jan Jorgensen appeared sluggish at the Copenhagen Masters final against his younger compatriot Viktor Axelsen on Sunday.

Jorgensen got off to a good start in the first set by racing to a quick 18-12 lead. However, Jorgensen seemed to have lost his focus all of the sudden and began to commit unforced errors at an alarming rate. Axelsen seized that opportunity to reel off 10 of the next 12 points and eventually took the first set 22-20.Congratulations Viktor Axelsen! Hope you have a breakthrough year in 2015!
