    MAS was lifting too much. Any off-pace shots to Towi and he would have blundered sooner or later. They should have made him play touch shots.

    the mas pair can go further if cps is more offensive and make fewer mistakes. gly is solid all around with excellent defense and very calm and lethal at the net. can't ask for a much better MX lady. overall the mas pair is too defensive.

    Tantowi needs more time in meditation room. Have a tendency prancing like phoenix when leading and makes all the silly mistakes to get into trouble.

    Geez.....the disease afflicting the INA pair is still with them! Towi/Butet were leading 15-7 and it was so easily leveled! They were so nearly getting beaten too.....

    They may not survive if they play like this against the CHN and Danish pairs. Even against the Danes last Sunday, the INA pair so easily gave up a comfortable lead.

    I played one (and only one :D ) in a competition.... The crowd was madly electrified at every point in the last 10 pts (the whole crowd was on my court as coincidently no matches on other courts at that moment).... Fortunately I won it. That was really exciting! Sweety and sweaty memory... :D

    At those crucial closing points, they should be trying to wins the points by taking the initiative rather than hoping for the opponent to screw up. MAS mentality,this is.

    Yes, I'm told some people find me offensive :D

    Once you find the secret to increasing your smash power, you too will be considered offensive (we're following that thread with much interest :p)

    It seems TH spread the virus to other INA Players.. like.. "Oh, you have won first set... take it easy.. victory will be yours shortly..." Then bammm.. second set was losing..

    Then third set become focus again until 15-7. That thoughts come again, "oh, 15-7, there's no way they can level back, take it easy, victory will come shortly" lol

    INA players so easily lost their focus and momentum. Not only one, but mostly all.

    They are also vulnerable to taking it easy during the change of sets. Angga/Rian won the 2nd set against Hashimoto/Hirata but so easily fell behind 0-7 right at the start of the rubber-set. That itself already killed the match.

    They have sent the strongest one, IMO.

    Currently, I don't think Sayaka can beat Eriko.

    "Beat" is a term controlled by LYB

    Where is Ayane these days? If anything, you should know.
