The former world number one welcomed his baby with his girlfriend Natalia Rohde. The little girl has been named Vega Rohde Axelsen. Natalia Rohde is a former Danish badminton player. She has had the highest world ranking of 35.
Viktor Axelsen did not participate in the Danisa Denmark Open due to an ankle injury. He has been recovering well and has started rehabilitation and training. This period has been a blessing in disguise as he has been able to spend some time with his family. It was a joyous moment for the Olympic bronze medallist to have been present for the birth of his daughter. Most players usually miss out on important life events due to professional commitments.
