    I think Tago was rather passive. If you compare his style now and the Tago during All England 2010, he's not as proactive in his attacking game. And when he actually started to attack, you could se how effective it was against LCW. He should've tried to be a little more aggressive I think and taking to account that LCW hasn't been in his A-game since the Olympics, Tago had a good shot at this but missed it.

    Also, what's up with him using his backhand all the time? I know that Taufik is his hero and all, but seriously, there were times when he could've used overhead instead. It even became his downfall when LCW had match point.

    It was encouraging to see Tago on better form at the Indian SS. The Semi Final against Pawar was great. His determination following a terrible line call diving on 3 occasions to win a point. Conditioning is the only thing that is preventing him from using an all out attacking game. Of course the overuse of backhand is still very suspect as demonstrated by LCW pouncing for match point on one of his weaker efforts. I hope he can continue with the same focus in his next tournament

    the more mature tago becomes, the more backhand he does recently

    eventhough he's very proficient at it but still and some point where down the line overheadsmash was an excellent choice, he clears it instead with backhand

    well at least at driving, he's so calm and got a lot of variations at his backhand side. push back, double motion, or bring it closer to the net. rarely get an unforced error

    I think he is looking up to Taufik too much. I mean, even Taufik didn't use his backhand that much when he was younger - he only started to do that after like 2006. Tago needs to make use of his energy and speed while he can.
    He is very good at backhand shots but forehand/around the head is always > backhand.

    I really liked his play in the JO final. Where some really good rallies in there.

    Yep, he's shown good improvement. Now he has to learn to play more patiently before smashing wildly outside the lines.

    LCW appeared in great form but seemed puzzled in the first game by the quality of Tago's play. He made very few mistake, his attacking play were precise, his defense excellent. If Tago could play like that on a regular basis, he'd be a force to reckon with.

    Congrats on Tago making it to the finals...I just wish he won too...
    He's my favorite "next generation" player and it's sad that he doesn't even have a Grand Prix title despite consistently being ranked so high. Winning this title would have meant so much for him and Japan...he even said since he was a toddler he always dreamed of playing in the finals of JO...

    Not to mention LCW has beaten him 14 times in a row now...poor Tago

    Here's an interview which I guess is after the LCW match. I don't understand nearly enough Japanese to know what he's saying so it would be much appreciated if someone would translate or give a quick summary of what Tago says

    Let me be the first to congratulate Tago on his semi-final victory over LCW in this year's French Open. He was bound to eventually defeat LCW after 15 attempts. I'm sure from know on Tago will start to win some tournaments. Well Done.

    KT has shown good form and hunger in this French open and he's really talented and has everything - once he can strategise and plan his rallies in a match, he will start winning
    tournaments.
    I take him to win the finals tommorow vs JOJ.

    Agreed. Prior to today, I felt his losing streak to LCW was a huge blow to his confidence. He certainly has the talent. I was a bit frustrated by the umpire today as he constantly insisted on inspecting every shuttle even when both players requested to have it changed.

    Let me be the second to congratulate Tago kun.

    Maybe its his new racket, there was an assured confidence about him today and he took the victory with a courteous bow. After losing the first set he upped his intensity and left no room for LCW to play as he bombarded him with attacks and the occasional cross court net. Today he cast off his continuous Hidayat backhand and worked for it, round the head generating some great angles.
    Hope he still has enough in the tank for tmrws final with JOJ

    Cant wait for tomorrows final 2 of my fave players going at it, oh yay!
