    The best to watch that you do not want to miss tomorrow are LD vs. JOJ and RI vs. CM

    Today (friday) court 1's lineup is fantastic, all great matches except perhaps the all-China affair in XD. The MS match is not MZ-Vittinghus, but LD-JOJ.

    LD-Momota is not the certain final, as both JOJ and Axelsen are in the way.

    Loved to watch the fighting spirit of the English underdogs, but it's not really a sign of things to come since Chris & Marcus are a senior/junior pairing (like Zhang Nan/Fu Haifeng)-- which will mostly likely split up soon after the Olympics.

    And they will probably get their "payback" almost immediately when they meet the Koreans seniors Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong tomorrow...

    Yes but now the England MD have nothing to worry. Both played so well to win the Korean MD today. So if they are going to play with such good performance again later, I would say both have the potential to win again later. Not to mention about Lee Yong Dae / Yoo Yeon Seong poor performance who have to struggled to win the their MD match just now.






    To summarise I would say this is not a good sign for Korean MD.

    Sorry to belabour the point like Maurice MJC-- but the reason why people like you (& probably Srikanth/ his coaches) are attributing Momota's success to Srikanth's fault is this: you are unable to UNDERSTAND Momota's game.

    E.g. "moves quicker"=reads opponent's game more accurately and therefore reacts faster; "smashed harder"=stranger angles and sudden acceleration.

    The obsession with the "spectacular" (as if the Super Series is some "smash challenge" game) seems to have made you somewhat oblivious to HOW Momota has been steadily developing his game (even when though you "noticed" it) ever since his debut in the senior circuit

    In contrast, the likes of Srikanth (& even Axelsen) are still essentially relying on the strategies and skills they debuted with-- not good enough in a sport where even seniors in their 30s like Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan are still developing their game.

    Steen Pedersen once noted that Axelsen would only progress when his defense is solid enough (to give him a good chance to attack). And Momota himself has made the observation that the senior circuit is much tougher than the junior circuit because you must learn to play more and longer games.

    Many valid points there, but I do not entirely agree with the "only progress when defence is solid enough" thing. Sure a good defence is a very important quality, but coaches tend to say this because it is reassuring for them. This defines-oriented approach is present in many sports like football and ice hockey, and its result is not always probing. Brasil lost its soul (and good results) when it traded its attack-control oriented game for defence-based game. Tennis also offers good examples.
    For the last three years this defence approach have been dominating but in WS with CM and RI, in MS with SK, we see that different styles can still enjoy some success.
    I would differentiate "controlling" the game and playing defence.

    Let's suppose CL loses because CHN team wants LD to climb to n.2 spot. LCW also want to lose because he wants LD at n.2 spot, so he can meet LD at the OLY final, and win, so together they enter the legend!

    Ok I watched CL lose live at the arena yesterday and it was clear he did not try to play his best. After last TC CHN wants LD as MS 1 this time so CL will fail here and in MAS open where he also won last year and LD will overtake him in ranking. This year TC is in China also so CHN ofcourse wants to win.
