He himself admits he hasn't performed too well
Momota's fitness is not bad, pretty good in fact, and he's able to play an accurate game with few unforced errors, keeping Wang Tzu Wei guessing and controlling the rallies more often than not.
Wang Tzu Wei is a fast hard-hitter with excellent court coverage and defense as well as a devastating attack if you allow him but with Momota giving him fewer attacking opportunities than he'd like to have or able to force out of most of his opponents, he tends to lose patience and attack prematurely to either cede the initiative to his opponent or make an error himself.
A fine victory for Momota.
He always does that
Looks like he will have to change his gameplay.
Pretty good win for KM. A real confidence booster
Something he must work upon. More smoothness will bode well with his blitz style.
Indeed, he certainly has to,at least learn to be more patient, bide his time to attack and construct his rally a bit more, esp against such a solid,defensive, accurate, and controlling player as Momota who can also spring a surprise attack or counterattack when the opportunity arises.
Incidentally, both of them are of the same age, 23, yet Momota seems more experienced, just that he's making a comeback after a one-year hiatus and still has some teething problems to overcome while WTW is more practised having been playing actively non-stop.
I think this match is a sign that KM is on the road to full recovery soon, before end of the year, I'd expect; perhaps,even earlier, in a few months' time.
I also think Wang Tzu Wei's fast, forceful, hard-hitting game, coupled with his ability to get a lot back, intercept shots and smash swiftly and ferociously from anywhere, which used to catch most of his opponents by surprise has lost some of his novelty effect as more and more players are aware of his game and better able to deal with it by anticipation.
In his match with KM, just looked at how many times his smashes and attacking shots as well as tight net play that KM was able to return, quite a few of them with interest.
WTW need to add deception to his game. His game is straight forward which cant defeat a patient player.

In my opinion,Tanongsak has influenced a crop of young, up-and-coming Thai MS who plays a physical game like him.
However, in this match with his junior teammate,19 years old Kantaphon, the 27-year-old veteran is the first to tire in punishing rallies, conceding the match in two straight sets.
Shi Yuqi needed three close games, 21-19 in the 3rd, to overcome his teammate Zhao Junpeng, a narrow victory, not a convincing start for him.
I am not putting my money on him. I do not see any big improvement.
VA: Anckle injury.
JOJ: Two full weeks of tournament in a row after being out for half a year. Withdrawn for recovery up to AE.
AA: Two migraine attacks in the past week.
HKV: Wife gave birth last week. His first child. Has not trained for a week.
RG: Three weeks of sickness. Trained last week though but not 100% up to speed.
What happened to Kim Bruun retiring after winning G1 vs Ginting?
Kim Bruun retired at 1-2 in G2 after one game up, G1, 21-14 ?

oh my brittney tam beating kirsty gilmour
Shi Yuqi lacks tenacity, not steady when under pressure, esp during crucial moments. I feel he needs to work on the mental aspects of the game.
