    Yeah, HYQ is older than CQC, more mature and less temperamental or bubbly, and can play the role of older sister to ZSW, a sort of steadying influence on him.

    VA is wary of KM's superb defence, his smashes are not full-on

    That's better, VA smashes hard cross court for the winner

    So far KM is playing more drop shots than nets, and VA seems to be avoiding net play with him

    Fast drop shots against a very tall player who has to bend low is a good tactic

    VA after a 4 point lead begins to play safe, wrongly in my opinion, and duly lost the advantage

    Not being to attack freely when you're a naturally offensive player usually spells trouble.

    KM's psychological advantage is having its effect on VA

    Wow, that was stupid of Axelsen to give free game to Momota.
    He should have play his plan after 17-13. Instead, he opts to end it too quickly for his good.

    VA vs KM match is now reminding me of LCW vs LD

    Lots of respect for each other

    Both are 24 years old, and KM has better stamina. VA's advantage is his height and reach but KM is not allowing him to capitalize on it too much.

    That's what VA must do more often, sudden attacking shots and quick follow-up

    VA has to attack decisively even though KM is likely to get it back otherwise KM will dictate the rally
