    Hadn't expected LSF to actually outrally KV though when he's falling behind in G2 (and I was expecting to see a decider), he did right to suddenly inject pace in the last quarter to pip KV to the finishing line and take the match in two straight sets, 21-18, 22-20.

    LSF has been having some sort of authority over KV——5 wins in the last as many encounters, and the last 4 in straight sets. I feel he is the one who has a pretty solid attack to rattle Kav’s defense

    When two participants from the same country are placed in the same group, the first match would be between those two participants.
    They even consider Hong Kong and China to be same country.
    I like this arrangement, to avoid conflict of interest.

    Anyone know the tie-breaker for the group advancement? Seems to me that AGS position is not secured enough because his two wins were played in rubber sets while his both group competitors (SYQ, VA) won in straight sets.

    Kodai qualifies if ginting bests VA in straight sets and kodai beats SYQ, such a weird group, win twice or lose twice they still have a chance

    very exciting MS matches today. If i have to guess , i would say 3 out of 4 will be rubber games.

    Agree with you. Red-color court does not look good for TV viewers.
    I was reading this article where tennis ball color was changed from white to yellow to be more visible to television viewers. (https://www.tennis365.com/tennis-fe...low-tennis-balls-thanks-to-david-attenborough).

    Doubt Ginting is beating Viktor though, especially since this match will start by the time Kodai v SYQ is ending. So Kodai is almost definitely not qualifying.

    I don't know how this statement is relevant to Kodai making it or not. I do agree that Kodai's chance of qualifying is basically zero to none though.

    LSF has authority over most of his junior peers. I believe he has beaten Kodai, Kunlavut, NTY all quite easily before. Its probably why the coaches push him more than WHY.

    But he struggle more than WHY against senior players.
