    It's going to be a battle of the less weary.
    Sayaka's left thigh has strapping on it, hopefully nothing too debilitating

    For badminton at this high professional level, even a slight feeling of discomfort can disrupt you mentally and spell disaster, for before you know it the run of points against you quickly derails your game from which it's usually too late to recover. I guessed that 's what happened to Boonsak's game just now. Don't get me wrong, I'm in no way under-estimating Tommy's ability, who on his day can trouble almost any player - I recall him giving Chen Long a creditable fight before, and an even better one against Chen Jin.

    Schenk doubled over after that rally, if this goes to three it's going to be brutal

    Hopefully not. It's disconcerting to see them suffer chronic problems so early. Even at the start of their careers.

    Sayaka is playing like Minatsu.
    Playing safe and pushing most of her shots to the backline and wearing her opponent out.

    Agreed.

    She didn't play like that yesterday and I'm not sure it's the right choice as she has a really good attack.

    Sayaka is all the time hitting to Juliane's baseline instead of moving her all four corners of the court... hmmm, not quite right IMHO.

    I bet Juliane will run out of gas if there is a rubber.

    If it goes to a third I'm worried they both will...

    The lactic acid filled arm is not so obedient to the command.
    It's risky to play the delicate touches.

    ahh, that was a shame, lots of positives for Takahashi though.
