at least I don't care the results no matter it's Olympics or not. Even AB wins, that doesn't justify anything.
For ZZ, they might more care about their body conditions and protect from any potential injuries or tiredness.
At most, treat it like a warming up exercise.
perhaps ZZ can utilize that rare nothing-to-lose opportunity to try out few tweaks or sharpen some particular new/riskier strokes/strategies... or whatever for some burden-free exercises ZYL is playing two events, stamina preservation must be observed in this extraordinary 'no-gain' situation just don't be duped!
I didn't expect THA to be on top of group B in MD. You did?!
Certainly unexpected but not something out of this world. KSH/YYS and BoSan have been struggling with form since the beginning of this year, especially the former who are no longer close to the formidable pair they once were. I actually think KKK/TBH would not mind facing any one of this two compared to the Thai pair as they have recently, after all won for the first time against KSH/YYS in 7 meetings.
