Chinese badminton superstar Lin Dan announced on Thursday to withdraw from the Yonex Denmark Open due to injury.

Lin canceled shortly before the duel against third-seeded Jan O Jorgensen of Denmark due to a knee injury he suffered in the first round.

"I'm really sorry that I had to withdraw. I had problems with my knee after the game yesterday, and it became worse during the training today," Lin said.

Lin's withdrawal means Jorgensen will advance to the quarterfinals and will meet Kashyap Parupalli of India.

The Dane is annoyed that he did not get a match against the five-time world champion, but welcomes the fact that he is now going further in the tournament.

"I'm disappointed. I would really like to play this game. It is the match you live and breathe, so I would really like to have been in action here at home," Jorgensen said.
