Welcome to The Bridge's LIVE blog from Day 3 of the Denmark Open 2021

The first round is of the Demark Open 2021 is done and dusted and we move into the pre-quarterfinals or the Round of 16 today. Quite a few of the Indians including the husband-wife duo of Parupalli Kashyap-Saina Nehwal and the veteran doubles specialist Ashwini Ponnappa have already been knocked out of contention.

Can the remaining Indians, which includes double Olympic medallist PV Sindhu, former world number 1 Kidambi Srikanth, the rising men's doubles pair of Satwik-Chirag and others keep the Indian flag flying in Denmark?

Stay tuned for all the latest updates.

    That's all folks!

    India started the Denmark Open 2021 with the third-largest contingent and now only 2 survives - the usual culprit PV SINDHU and SAMEER VERMA.

    The third day was not a memorable one for India, losing 5 out of seven games. However, it sure has ended on a high, thanks to Sameer Verma.

    It has been a long day. Thank you for joining in. Good Night!

    I am sensing something special

    Sameer Verma leads 16-11. Is there something special brewing? I really hope so after all the flop shows by Indians earlier today.

    Antonsen fighting back

    Anders Antonsen is slowly clawing his way back into this contest. Verma leads 13-10

  • 21 Oct 2021 6:56 PM GMT

    4-point lead

    A comfortable 4-point lead for Sameer Verma at 11-7 during the mid-game interval. The Indian has played extremely well to keep Antonsen quiet so far, but one can still not rule out the Danish star.

    Will Verma be able to maintain his cool and finish this off?

    Sameer Verma is in complete control of the proceedings. A 5-point lead as Antonsen continues to struggle.

    Sameer leads!

    The second game has started and Sameer Verma leads 3-2 for now.

  • 21 Oct 2021 6:43 PM GMT



    Sameer Verma takes the first game 21-14 against Antonsen in 18 minutes. The Danish star looked way off colour and the Indian took complete advantage!

    On to Game number 2. Will Verma kill off the match? Or will Antonsen get back to his usual self?
