    Same here. He played moderate to high quality opponents at some crucial situations, and ended wining all of them. Not to mention, he played in all the ties. He is the Christie of this version of Thomas cup

    My pick is Prannoy ( for his humongous effort to win after taking pain killer)

    Yeah but I can bet you, my neighbours they won't even know about this feat lol. Too invested in cricket, man. I've lost hope so I've stooped pestering people to watch other sports.

    Even without the injury, Prannoy was the favourite to win. Gemke is not the same level.

    Lucky for Rajawat. That gruelling trials to play only one match was not for nothing.

    A new history has been carved in Bangkok, India becomes 6th nation to win Thomas Cup which induces this competition more exciting to follow...

    Anthony Ginting who rediscovers better form since couple of days ago has blistering start to begin INA title-defend campaign, 21-8 to outplay Sen, unfortunately the iteration of his inconsistency habit struck again especially in long rallies to rush to attack, the breaking point happened in final game when the Indonesian led 12-8 but loosen the grip and never came back until the end. His tight net shot weapon is balanced well by Indian young gun alongside Sen persistent defense which could retrieve his sharp smashes.

    Buoyed by Sen inspiring victory, Rankireddy/Shetty did their job to break INA MD stranglehold in very tight contest, the Indians keep targeting Ahsan to score point, don't think it is right strategy to field this combination continuously until finale but seems INA has no better choice as Alfian/Ardianto also have vulnerable performance and risky option.

    One step closer for India to lift Thomas Cup and massive burden for Christie to keep INA chance on track. It's obviously Asian Games Champion can't handle the huge pressure well in opening game that translated through his nervous shots and only expecting Srikanth to commit mistake to get point. Second game plot presents nail-biting atmosphere when Christie finally woke up, started to calm down and regain self belief but it's too late to comeback and not enough to halt Srikanth momentum and the inevitable winning for India. What a contrast fashion for Indonesia men's team camp seven months ago in Aarhus when they beat China 3-0 then lost 0-3 here.

    Interesting to know that none country can defend Thomas Cup since 2012 edition and next TUC Finals will be held in Chengdu (CHN).

    Will see the highlights on Voot at 480 p to confirm what you are talking about :D

    But yeah, Baba Ahsan is pure animal on the court. One of the most feared player I have ever seen on the doubles tour
