“If asked about the secret, I also don’t know the secret on why I could play really well in Istora. I was just looking to find ways to be able to play comfortably here. This is amazing,” said Anders Antonsen to Djarumbadminton.com.
“I think I have good momentum for now. I have to keep trying and have to enjoy it now,” he added.
