PETALING JAYA: It was a grand night for hosts Denmark in the Copenhagen Masters at Falconer Centre on Monday. They made a clean sweep of all three titles at stake.

And it was Tine Rasmussen, who made it happen for the Danes.

She dashed Xu Huaiwen’s hopes of retaining the title, winning the women’s singles final match 21-18, 21-17.

Last year, the German beat Hong Kong’s Zhou Mi to claim the title.

Kenneth Jonassen played in his last international competition but there was no happy ending for him. He was beaten 14-21, 15-21 by compatriot Peter-Gade Christensen in the men’s singles final.

The men’s doubles title went to the 2003 world champions Lars Paaske-Jonas Rasmussen, who came from behind to beat Mathias Boe-Carsten Mogensen 14-21, 21-13, 21-19.
