DUBAI World Superseries Finals Champion 2017
The world No. 2 Chong Wei went down fighting to defending champion and world No. 1 Viktor Axelsen in a gripping 84-minute men’s singles final at the Hamdan Sports Complex in United Arab Emirates on Sunday.
The 35-year-old Chong Wei almost had Axelsen in the second game when he won five points in a row to level the score at 19-19 but it was the Dane who pulled through to force the deuce.
In the decider, the fired-up 23-year-old Axelsen pulled off all the right moves to hang on for a deserving win 19-21, 21-19, 21-15.
