Denmark Open: Ellis, Langridge win men’s doubles

ODENSE, OCT 18 (AGENCIES) | Publish Date: 10/18/2020 12:18:47 PM IST

Marcus Ellis and Chris Langridge became the first English men’s doubles pair in 45 years to win the DANISA Denmark Open, which they accomplished in an exciting final today in Odense against Vladimir Ivanov and Ivan Sozonov, reports BWF fansite. 

The result could well have gone the other way. Langridge and Ellis were in trouble early in the third. Down 2-7, and appearing low on energy, something happened that galvanised Langridge.

It was a comment that rang out from the gallery, something that “burned my skin”, as he later said it.

The shift in energy was immediate and effective; Langridge was again an electric presence at the net, and suddenly the momentum shifted. The Russians struggled to stave off the English duo at the front court. Appropriately enough, the final smash winner came from Langridge, clinching the title 20-22 21-17 21-18.
