Axelsen was a commanding force against his compatriot Hans-Kristian Solberg Vittinghus in the men’s final in Bangkok.
Thailand is hosting three consecutive badminton tournaments in a bio-secure coronavirus bubble, without spectators to guard against the coronavirus outbreak.
Axelsen, 27, ran rings around 35-year-old Vittinghus triumphing in the first set 21-11.

Vittinghus, ranked 42th, made the tournament from a reserves list and had to reschedule his flight home because he had not anticipated a finals berth.
Axelsen repeatedly sent Vittinghus diving for shots and appeared in control of most rallies.
He polished off the second set 21-7.
The women’s doubles was an all Korean affair with sixth-ranked Kim So-yeong and Kong Hee-yong too strong against fourth-ranked Lee So-hee and Shin Seung-chan 21-18, 21-19.
In the men’s doubles, seventh-ranked Lee Yang and Wang Chi-Lin of Taiwan also made it back-to-back titles in 36 minutes against Malaysia’s ninth-ranked Aaron Chia and Soh Wooi Yik 21-13, 21-18.
Four people involved in the tournaments, including two players, have tested positive for the coronavirus during the past fortnight of competition.
The finale — the Badminton World Federation World Tour Finals — kicks off on Wednesday at the Impact Arena and will be contested by the top eight of each discipline.
Chinese and Japanese athletes have not participated in the Bangkok tournaments.
