    After watching Kenichi Tago play, he's promising for sure but tries to be too flashy and deceptive and makes tons of errors because of that. Taufik has that problem also, but for him it's natural. I feel like Kenichi Tago forces it. He also doesn't have the flash of explosiveness that Taufik sometimes shows. And for sure he doesn't have the powerful jump smash and the touch.

    Yet.

    Kenichi Tago's profile on his team page:
    http://www.ntt-east.co.jp/symbol/bad...mber/m_03.html

    He says he started playing badminton just like how Shoji Sato did, as his parents were top-level players. He started playing when he was two years old, when he first learned to walk.

    Default Kenichi Tago

    I think he deserves a separate thread now... The way he demolished Mark Zwiebler today in 09 WC is quite remarkable. IMHO, he also showed much improvement since last year.

    As he is only 20 yrs old now, I believe he should have great future.

    Default ^^That's the thread..^^

    ..(merge request)??..
    Personally, no, i wasn't really surprised by his win over Zwiebler (non-seeded player) in this yr's WC; afterall he fought & defeated Persson (who is a seeded player)...Now, if he can muster a win over Simon and then beats Chen Jin in his next match, then i will be surprised..

    My bad! I did search "Tago" and these thread didn't show up... Moderator please merge the threads. Thanks!

    It's not his win over Zwiebler... It's how he won. Total dominance. Watch the match on www.badmintonfreak.com (all hail showsomemercy!) and you'll know what I mean.

    vs Simon should be 50-50. If he can topple CJ, then I would also be very very surprised.

    Well... many players can beat Persson in a 3-setter, but how many can toy Zwiebler like Tago just did?

    Anyway, maybe Simon Santoso will prove me wrong today. (I bet he wants to! )

    Default Just saw the video..my 1.25 sens take..

    ..okay, just saw the 1st game video (skipped the 2nd one). Personally, i thought neither player showed any brilliant plays. Zwiebler definitely was making more unforced errors in the 1st game. Maybe he was rushing it a bit or wasn't able to play to his tempo. On the other hand, Kenichi was moving so fast, Marc probably didn't know what to do in a few of those rallies.
    As for Kenichi, I'll give him a star for his very good footwork and court coverage. If not mistaken, i only saw him do 4-5 backhand shots in the entire 1st game. The rest he was able to cover them with his over-the-head shot. Other than his very good footwork, his strokes are your usual variety.
    Overall, i still wasn't surprised with the result.

    The next time they play against each other, i'd expect Zwiebler to put on a better performance.

    - There’s a reason for their seeding numbers, right?
    - Personally, I rate Persson as higher than Zwiebler.
    - If Tago can beat Persson in a tough 3-gamer, then it wouldn’t surprise me if he beat/toyed Zwiebler rather “easily”.
    - Many also were able to toy with Persson and many had a tough 3-gamer vs. Zwiebler; just depends who their opponents were.

    Btw, we're still waiting for one of the mods or kwun to merge the 2 threads together..
