Scottish Open Day 3: Denmark’s Christopherson Mads About Attack

By RJ Mitchell

Denmark’s Mads Christophersen has vowed to go on the attack in the final of tomorrow’s Men’s Singles at the Scottish Open.

The No.5 seed defeated Austria’s Collins Valentine Filimon in straight sets in comprehensive fashion 21-12, 21-9 to make his fourth International Challenge final.

He will now meet India’s Sankar Muthusamy Subramanian in a surprise final in which the Dane admits he will wheel out the big guns.

Christophersen said: “Every Indian guy has badminton in them that us Europeans don’t have naturally.

“It is not the best for me to meet guys like him who have a lot of deception but if I can stay disciplined and in control I have the chance.

“My offense and attack is what can win me this and I plan to use it.”

The Dane added: “I don’t know anything about him and it is the first time I’ve seen him but I have managed to watch a little bit of his games and now I need to do my analysis tonight.

“We have different styles for sure and hopefully mine will prove stronger.”

Reflecting on his semi-final success over an out of sorts Filimon the Scottish Open finalist said: “My focus was good and I stayed in the game all the time and was very disciplined and it paid off.

“I think he felt like I wasn’t going to give him anything and I just stuck to my game plan and it worked and worked right from the start.”
