    Arc-Z... it might be just a paint job from Yonex! don't put too much attention towards what the racquet Pro is using

    KT doesn't have that natural jump smash ability like lcw, ld, pg and th. Difficult to be successful. He need to do more hopping.

    Not really.. Tago has a pretty good offensive game. He looses more when defending smashes against body and when a bit late backwards still going for smash.. Many of his loosing points today could be attributed to semiforced errors.. I actually think his Arc-Z is hurting his game.. It gives him good power, but it hurts his control / defence..

    still need to add on some intensity in his stamina tank in order to have a more consistent appearance in semi final or final.
    as i said in post number 221 in this thread
    anyway,he had improved on this lately but still not good enough
    and he need to be more humble
    humble and humble

    So you are saying if Tago changes to another racket that gives better control / defense, he could lessen his errors ? Also, will that be a sacrifice for his smashes / attack ??

    Thumbs up Kenichi, we believe in you!

    Kenichi lost the finals of the French Open 2011, to LCW in straight games. But that dry information does not tell the real story. It does not tell you how Kenichi Tago played.

    It will not tell you about the power of his smashes that left LCW stranded time and again. Or the choice of his attacking defensive returns that made the fastest player on the planet scramble to get at. Or of his immaculate netplay, which we knew he always had.

    It does not tell you of the beauty of his backhand, or of the power and suppleness of his wrists when he hits those backhands; shots which would make his idol Taufik proud to own.

    It does not tell you about the look on Kenichi's face: of a young man who wants to win that title, but who agonized, must watch it slip away because he is still not consistently good enough to beat the Malaysian. But it will tell you about Kenichi losing hope at some point in the second game, and with it, his consistency, his immaculate defence, his accuracy, and finally, his interest.

    But I would like to tell you Kenichi: we believe in you.

    We believe you can be The One. That you can be among the best in your time. That you can win the big titles. That you have the potential and the skill, and the raw talent and instinctive brilliance that most Chinese and Indonesian players would gladly chop their other hand off for, to possess.

    That is not enough, though. You must believe in yourself. And follow up the belief with hard work. And build up the consistency and intensity. There is no other way.

    And you must stop being tentative and overly respectful of your idols. You must make your idols proud of you! They should be proud that they were able to inspire another player who would become as great as they were! You have to be ruthless on court, without being arrogant or insulting. But you must learn to be ruthless.

    At 22, Kenichi Tago is still young enough to play for another 8, 10, 12 years even! His best days are yet ahead of him. I fully believe that in the very near future, we will know Kenichi, not as the giant-killer; but as the giant, himself.

    I think All England 2010 is much better and thrilling game... KT gave LCW problems especially those smashes from KT... and the winning point is a tight call.

    Cobalt, that was a nice one . If Tago can read and understand it I am sure when he meets you, he will hug you with his powerful legs up your waist. Thus, I suggest you go to the gym right now after reading this post and start pumping your thight muscle Btw, I can't write like you so I can only tell him to be a full timer

    the points he gained from the FO has took him up to Rank 15 for OLY qualification, provisionally qualified for London, definitely one of the dark horse to look out for

    If he increase by 20% in speed, he can do all the jump smash. His speed is not there at the moment.
