ODENSE: Independent shuttlers Zulfadli Zulkifli and Tan Chun Seang has pulled out of the Denmark Open, which begins here today.
The 19-year-old Zulfadli pulled a muscle while competing in last week’s Dutch Open. He lost in the second round to Sweden’s Mathias Borg.
“It’s not a serious injury. I’ve been competing non-stop for the past month so I’m a little tired. It’s time for a break,” said Zulfadli, who will return to Kuala Lumpur today.
Zulfadli, the Asian and world junior champion in 2011, has been competing non-stop the past month. Besides the Dutch Open, he also played in the Taiwan Open, Russian Open and London Grand Prix Gold.
