    Rexy said that Anthony's style is more suitable to play against Danish players than Jonatan's.

    8-all again. Can T make it? A challenge from V when his shot was called OUT. Confirmed by HE. 9-8 for T.

    Yes V is wavering a bit. He may get his 2nd wind.

    Yesterday I was thinking DEN might want to use JOJ again, and INA TS despite both of them having some injury concerns - for DEN it's so that they can field HKV as MS3 should it come to the tiebreaker, just that for INA I didn't expect Jonatan Christie to be passed up.

    MS1 is a must-win for DEN as INA is highly likely to take both the MD, after which DEN will have to depend on JOJ to deliver to keep their hopes alive. Overall, at least on paper, INA have the edge, she just have to win one of the MS, most likely either MS2 or MS3 to take the crown.

    Viktor must avoid long rallies, there's no good for him if there's a 3rd set

    Another smash error from V from base. Certainly his fitness is declining a little.
    But he gained another point 11-14 before he hits out, 15-11 for T.

    A very good gesture from V to request the umpire to allow T's floor to be dried.

    Why didn't the umpire accede to Tommy's request for the court to be properly mopped, it's the Thomas Cup Final, you know ?

    T is not going to allow the wet floor to defeat him. He used his own towel to wipe it himself.

    Viktor is fully aware of Tommy's strategy and is waiting for every opportunity to force him to lift.

    V again troubled on the baseline with a smash that hit the net.
    T leading quickly 17-15.

    Player safety is important. The referee should not refuse TS request to mop the court. Good gesture from VA to support him
