    Axelsen himself said that he was too nervous to get some sleep before the match against BCL. This could also be a reason that affected his game even one day later against WZM.

    Although WZM played a very good match, I don't think that he would win that easily if Viktor's in good form.

    I don't understand the logic??? In this case, it should affect his performance against BCL (which Viktor won) instead of another day later (where he could have another nite to catch up enough rest with good sleep)???

    In fact, Viktor did say BCL was his idol since his childhood, therefore he had watched video of BCL's matches for many many years. Yet BCL knew almost nothing about him. Maybe this is the reason why VA beat BCL. So if BCL knows VA more, I don't think VA would win.

    ... Anyway, you could not always have matches with both opponents at 100% form. Ability of awareness and adjustment of your form, adjustment of the way you play when knowing form of yourself and the opponent is also reflecting a player's capability and also an essential part in assessing whether a player is great or just good...

    Well, VA already played 2 extra matches in qualifying thus his 5th match versus WZM s 3rd, so he has two choices against young gun WZM (whose game is not in any syllabus yet, so no pre- coaching possible): Either finish it quick and win or lose OR lose for sure.

    It seems as if you don't have much experience in playing with no sleep!?

    The deficit on sleep often doesn't affect the body immediately the day after. It comes into play when the tension goes away and the body is able to take what it needs.

    so you did? a lot? or just from theory?

    I did and do, did a lot even after without a sleep overnite in fact... particularly when young... and not just "playing" after no-sleep nite.

    from my own vast experience, it did come into effect if you go to vigorous physical action like this kind of high level competition... it would delay if not this case..

    of course everyone's physical conditions might differs you might argue...

    So then let's go with your theory: A tired VA beat BCL in 2 straight games, but lost back in form to WZM. BTW: What a nice compliment to BCL!

    my impression is that VA is much more agressive than PG. When PG loves to play a beautiful game, VA hates to loose that game. VA shows partly the same egocentric attitude of self confidence as Lin Dan, Muhamed Ali or Bobby Fisher. This and
    his talent could make him No 1 in two or three years... Let's see 8-)

    as VA himself said, he is a fan of BCL since childhood, therefore already studied BCL's game for years...

    this could be a better compliment to BCL. see how they work in the next meeting...

    Not many 17 year olds have bragging rights about beating Taufik :-)

    First Bao, now Taufik! I'd say Taufik is now one of the weaker players in the world top 20 but it is still an achievement. Gade next you would think, will be a much tougher test.
