    I think SK's win over LCW in the Team event made SK too confident and LCW more wary-- SK tried too hard to dominate and push the pace; while LCW was switching gears every 2-3 shots in a rally...

    IIRC, more of SK's points were won in shorter rallies, while more of LCW's points were won in longer rallies -- after 2/3 shots, it was really anyone's guess whether/when LCW would accelerate or take the pace off the shuttle...

    SK's "rhythm & control" play is still not there (compare SK's matches before the MS Final vs the way LCW takes down lower-tier opponents), but I have even greater respect for SK now -- because LCW only plays this way with LD...

    Good observation…

    SK overall skills and tactical awareness are not yet LCW level, that’s why the longer rallies the better chance for LCW to win, SK has to rely on his youth (speed & power) to beat LCW. I think if Mulyo still coaching India, he could have helped.

    "Know yourself as well as your enemy," Sun Tzu

    At the top tier, it's all preparation, preparation, preparation (see how Axelsen effectively "neutralized" Chen Long & Lin Dan in WC 2017) -- so it helps to have international/foreign coaches who are more aware what your opponents are doing, and/or statistical analysis software/experts to predict all the shots/tactics from past data

    LCW varied the smash very well. You can see SK confused - he sometimes had to receive down the line smashes steep smashes and some to his body. 8 points down is hard to make a come back.

    Due to the higher pressure of keeping the shuttle low in the service and return situation at higher levels of play, and also especially in doubles where the service area is shorter and the receiver toes the service line.

    It is more difficult to serve low and accurately with forehand serve. That's why Jwala Gupta and Sikki Reddy stand out so much (for the wrong reasons) for their forehand serves in doubles. I really can't think of any other pro doubles players serving with forehand.

    Now in singles it's a different story as the receiver stands further back due to the longer service area. So at lower levels of play, you'll see MS and WS serve high forehand serves.

    with this 1.15m height rule, i predict the return of forehand serves; especially if server/partner have good eyes to repel the 2nd shot(a smash).

    Not sure... But I do notice more drive serves, which also catches the receiver by surprise as they look to the service judge for a fault call but to no avail.
