    Shon looks like using sw30

    2 words: quality sparring.

    or is that no longer the current trendy excuse?

    The unforced errors are creeping into Shon's game. Not as steady as in G1 where he was playing out of his skin. LCW 6-1

    9-3 LCW 2nd game. Looks more like a match we would expect. LCW forcing more errors in Shon. But there are equal number of unforced errors as well.

    11-7 LCW at mid game interval. Shon gained a couple of points from his own good defense and counter attack but LCW also threw in a couple errors. I wonder if LCW can hold his lead, considering he started at 9-1.

    Looks like Shon has more sting on his smash than LCW today.

    GC goes with the "injection of pace" favourite after LCW powers one home. 14-8

    LCW picking up the pace. Some good play with cross court drops and accurate smashes brings it to 17-11 LCW

    You knew Shon would come down a notch or two. It was impossible to sustain the level he was at in G1. 19-11

    Down the line smash by LCW. 20-12

    Lucky net cord on the drop by LCW secures him G2 21-14

    Shon is exceptionally quick around the court. Very impressed by that.

    It seems Shon has brought his A-Game again. 3-2 Shon, some good rallies to start the rubber.

    11-6 LCW. Shon is playing well, almost like the first game but not quite. However LCW is playing better.

    Shon comes out of the break reenergized to close the gap to 11-8

    12-11 LCW. Wow Shon is making a comeback. LCW is relaxing but Shon upped the pace!
