    K&K also played really well against BoeMoe - they are definitely not to be underestimated...

    I'm afraid Zhang Nan is stretching himself thin doing double duty at the Olympics...it's beginning to show.

    Add to that, Viktor and Scott know each other well, having trained together in Denmark before Olympics, and in Rio up to the start of the tournament.

    I'm not sure if it favors any one of them, that they know each other well?

    I must admit, I can't see Viktor loosing this one.
