    Regarding the incorrect line call, TH would have storm of the court. LD would throw his racket in protest. I would maybe swear to protest.

    KT did not look that happy after the final, which I think is understandable. He had some great comebacks during the AE so I bet he believed he still had a chance at matchpoint LCW.

    If anyone is just happy to get to the final, they need a mental adjustment. You better try to win it cos' you might not get there again. And even if you do, you might lose again. It's so difficult to get to a final in a major, especially if you're not at the very top of the food chain. If Tago was indeed not very happy, then he's got the right attitude and I hope it drives him to many more major finals. And hopefully he can pick up a win or two.

    KT was awesome. I couldn't tell if he was just happy being in the finals, but I liked how he laughed and smiled a bit compared to most players who are just stone faced and lifeless until they win or lose the game...

    As for his gameplay, I think he's a mix of Taufik and LCW. He has appropriate aggression and passiveness. Very refreshing to see in badminton.

    Definitely a great run for KT. He's got the talent and demeanor for bigger things in the future for sure! And it would be nice if Japan can measure up with the usual suspects: Indonesia, Mlaysia, China, etc.

    I am sure he is happy being in the finals, but would even happier if he gets the title, especially when he knows he has a chance to upset LCW.

    Tago achievement in AE is a good sign for badminton and I hope his break through could help badminton to promote in Japan.

    Good luck for him in the future.

    Tago plays with the best aspects of Taufik's smash/net play and still has some pretty great athletic ability in his dives.

    Someone said he was a hybrid between Taufik (smash/net play) and LCW (defence, athletic ability, speed).
