Daren Liew crowned French Open Champion

KUALA LUMPUR: National number two shuttler Liew Daren grabbed his first ever Super Series title after winning the Yonex French Badminton Open 2012, held at Paris tonight.

The world number 24 staged a polished performance to beat Viktor Axelsen from Denmark 21-18, 21-17 in 42 minutes.

Earlier in the tournament, Liew stunned world number nine Sho Sasaki of Japan to advance into semifinal before edging out 18-year-old Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark.

Liew’s win more or less made up for the defeat of Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong in the men’s doubles. — BERNAMA
