They don't have their own. It should simply be on www.tournamentsoftware.com -> http://tournamentsoftware.com/sport/...A-E7CAC9F39419 [have to admit I couldn't find it by searching on tournamentsoftware itself ]
I also have (non-tv) video for the Estonia International final, already uploaded it and trimmed it a little with the youtube editor and when it was finished the sound was messed up. Will have to re-do it later ...

He will be playing the Swedish International Stockholm Tournament, that kicks off tomorrow. There will be live streaming, so all baddy fans will be able to skip sleep and watch both SIS and MO these days I guess :-)
I have posted a separate post with some info on the tournament and links..

Kento Momota beat Finnish player Eetu Heino the other day in the Estonia Open in a three set game.Eetu plays for the Swedish team Kista BMK and I watched him play the day before yesterday against Gabriel Ulldahl, one of Sweden's best singles players.
Momota's last encounter with Henri Hurskainen resulted in a loss in two straight games. But I think Momota has become much stronger since then. It will be interesting to see a match between them.

On topic: Kento has a few challenges this week, Hurskainen, Eric Pang and Brice Leverdez are all capable of playing to a high standard, all are experienced players, and used to the European style. Kento has a chance no doubt here, but he has to take all matches seriously. His first round opponent isn't a pushover either.

I watched him play earlier against Kim Bruun. He played very relaxed in the first game, but in the second game he made more mistakes and Kim Bruun played better than in the first game.
21-13 and 23-21 to Momota.
Afterwards I asked if I could take a picture with Momota. They told me they had a TV interview and since they had no one to interpret, they asked me to do it
It was quite sudden so both my Swedish and Japanese went haywire, but it went OK, haha.
During the interview, Momota said that he wasn't able to concentrate too well and had to focus on trying to make as few errors as possible. Also, he thinks that the game against Hurskainen will be tough as he's not used to play against left handers.
Going there tonight again to see the game against Hurskainen. Should be interesting!

He is very very good. Very great footwork, speed and consistency
Definitely a talented player, Japan is very lucky to have him and its very rare to have players like this. If Japan can really push and nurture him well, he will be the real threat in a few years time

Momota beat Hurskainen in a 3-set game today.
They played very well both of them, but Momota got the best of Hurskainen in the third set.
During the second game there were a few bad line calls towards Momota though.
In tomorrows quarter finals, he will face fifth seed Vladmir Malkolv, 5th seed and ranked 66th in the world.

Sorry, my bad Estonia was his first, Swedish being his second!

can the MS final (momota vs. pang) be re-watched somewhere? i know it was streamed via badminton-tv.nu but there seems not to be a version which can be re-watched. or maybe i'm just dumb
