Agree he has the potential and the skill and talent to become a real champion. But his mind is fragile, and his attitude is not yet "tough".
Like, he does not have that mental "steel" that is required to be consistently successful.
I think he is still going through the stage where he is enjoying the "experience" too much, and not taking the "responsibilities" seriously enough.
He needs the confidence to know deep in his heart that he belongs at the top. And then, he must play like he belongs at the top. He still has not found that way inside his head.
My 2 cents...

Poor Tago, not getting credit for his hard work. How cruel can this world be ? You will get labelled as 'gambateh' fans soon, cobalt, as opposed to jiayou and boleh fans .

i was all cheering for tago when he meet bao chun lai
as a fans since 2006
and he proved that he is at least better than the china number 4(3rd should be chen long now)
and still 3 more to climb(ld,cj and cl)
he shows the great fighting spirit and mentality to dispose the 200% well prepared dicky in 2nd round,which he fight and run for every inch on court
i believe he will be better than chen long in future

And fans should also stop treating him like he is still a kid (and yes, maybe its time he stopped behaving like one! )
I am not saying it is his "fault" either. Just calling it like I see it. He does need some people around him who can instill that level of confidence he really needs.
At the top and international level of play, you need more than just playing skills, technique and physical strength. You also need mental strength. That is what will separate the winners from the also-rans. He needs someone who can help him in that department.
Personally, I like the guy a lot. As I said, I believe in him. The problem is, I don't think he believes so much in himself!

PS. I remember even the perceptive Gill Clark mentioning that he reminds her very much of a younger Taufik. So he can't be bad at all!

Tago has added some dimension to his game. Everyone has anaylised his game after AE2010... that's why he didnt made much progress after that. Now he is back with STINGS!
Good to have someone good from the land of the rising sun

Tago lost out to DPY in the Quarter-finals of the KO. I haven't seen the match, so I can't comment on it.
But I still have great faith in his talent and capacity.
In fact, he is one of the guys with a good chance to make it to the OG2012 finals, IMO.

is he wearing a key pendant necklace? I am wearing one too. When one turns 21, the parents will give him/her a key pendant necklace. Is this the same in Japan?

Wow, Japan has its own thread of Professional Players! About time, they thoroughly deserve this!

i like the way he beat simon,looks like he is the secret weapon for japan to reach semi
too bad japan lost
but this kind of style doesnt fit in individual tournament because his stamina cant support his game
