    Tago has now attained the status of "habitual offender."

    His racquets and shoes should be confiscated; he should be reprimanded; sent off to do 350 hours of community service cleaning the Koi ponds in Niigata prefecture (if they'll allow him within 5 miles of there, with his goofy attitude :D) and then sent to spend the winter on the summit of Mt Kluchevskoy (if the Russians can trust him with their mountain, that is) alone; in reflection and meditation. Hopefully along the way he sheds a couple of pounds as well.

    Tago performances is not consistent.Sometimes his good,sometimes his bad.When he use voltric80,his performance improved a little bit.But when he switch back to Arc Z,he become super yoyo in his match.Not consistent.

    KT improves a bit, but he need to smash more in his games. And also moving in quickly after smashing. Just like lcw. ;)

    If he can do this, he can be top 4 easily. ;)

    Hmmm...just a thought, but in FO and MO, Tago received a walkover by his Chinese opponents, reaching the final against LCW both times. Perhaps it is an effort by the Chinese team to elevate Tago's ranking and put him in the Olympics over his teammate Sho Sasaki?

    KT style of play quite similar to TH, it is very enjoyable to watch his matches. Come on KT.

    In terms of racquet, he needs to change to a racquet which has bigger sweet spot...

    Tago as a prospect interests me. His style is very interesting and loose with a lot of backhand shots, at least that's how it looks to me. It would seem him along with Chen Long are the premier young talents on the tour right now, with Chen Long having the advantage for now. To me, Chen Long looks special, very special; a talent who will surely see major success throughout his career. Do you guys feel that Kenichi will be able to compete and find success in this era of of LCW and LD and surely soon, CLong?
