Viktor Axelsen is yet to win a title this year.

BWF World No. 1 Viktor Axelsen recently took to social media to provide an update about his upcoming schedule to his fans.

At the recently concluded Thomas Cup and Uber Cup 2024, Denmark topped their group with three wins; however, they suffered a disappointing 3-1 loss against Chinese Taipei in the quarterfinals. Moving on, the Danish shuttler revealed that he’s focusing on singles action again.

Viktor Axelsen took to X (formerly Twitter) and stated that she’s keen to participate in the upcoming Malaysia Masters, Singapore Open, and Indonesia Open. He also wrote that he loves playing in Southeast Asian countries. He wrote, “Schedule: Malaysia Masters Singapore Open Indonesia Open. 3 of my favorite places to play badminton. Hope to have two good weeks of prep before going . Wish me luck fam.”

The Malaysia Masters will commence on May 21, and the final of the Super 450 event will be played on May 26. Meanwhile, the Singapore Open is scheduled to take place from May 28 to June 2. The third Super 1000 event of the year, the Indonesia Open, will take place between June 4 and 9.

However, Viktor Axelsen hasn’t been in his best form this year. He was eliminated in the semi-final by Shi Yuqi at the Malaysia Open. Later, he pulled out of the India Open due to illness.

He wrote on social media, “Hi all, After my match on Saturday I’ve been laying in bed Ill and after talking with the medical team present here in Malaysia, I’ve been advised to get additional checkup. That means that I unfortunately won’t be able to travel and be present at India Open this year, which is rather disappointing as it has been a tournament where I’ve loved to play in front of the Indian badminton fans.”

He returned to action at the French Open, where he suffered a disappointing loss in the second round against Taiwan’s Wang Tzu-wei. Nevertheless, the Danish shuttler will be looking forward to getting in shape before the 2024 Paris Olympics.
