ODENSE: Former world No.1 Wang Yihan ended the impressive run of world champion Ratchanok Intanon with an impressive come from behind 21-23, 21-19, 21-17 win in the semi-finals on Saturday.
The 2011 world champion has been going through a patchy year but she saved her best for Ratchanok - a player she has never lost to in seven previous meetings.
It was a close first game but Ratchanok, who is competing in her first tournament after a lengthy injury layoff did enough to steal ahead.
The 25-year-old Yihan, who won the Danish meet in 2010 then stepped up a notch and was always in the driving seat in securing her seventh win over Ratchanok and a place in the final.
She will face South Korea’s Sung Ji-hyun, who defeated China’s Wang Shixian 21-19, 21-14, for the title.
