Malaysia’s Daren Liew finally achieved the biggest title of his professional career as he emerged as the winner in the Yonex French Open Super Series 2012 at Paris, France, on Sunday, October 28.
In the final battle, Daren overpowered his talented opponent Viktor Axelsen of Denmark who also played terrific badminton throughout the contest.
The World Number 24 Daren, who was an un-seeded player in the tournament, played with remarkable speed and passion all the way and grabbed Men’s Singles title to prove that he has stepped into the highest class of badminton.
On the other hand, Axelsen failed to put up strong show as he could not create gaps in his rival’s court at crucial stages and eventually lost the battle without proving his impressive skills on court.
Daren performed extremely well from the opening rallies of first set as he played with spectacular speed and grabbed the control of the game without showing any respect to his opponent.
