    THW played well, unfortunately, nerves got the better of him. To many mistakes in the crucial part of G3

    Right, THW choked at the final lap.

    The match was ultimately decided in the last few points of G3 and Viktor showed better composure despite looking drained.

    When Tian Houwei killed the poor serve from Victor, i thought victor will lose focus . But instead he smiled and made Tian Houwei to laugh. Immediately, i thought he got that maturity.
    He won the game there itself for me.

    The way Tian Houwei played from G2 and most of G3, he'd have beaten LCW here too. Of course,I mean a LCW not at his best.

    Strange match today. Both are chokers in the final stage and both have met to play finals. There should be one winner atleast. From this, Victor proved he is more 'matured choker' than Tian Houwei

    Axelsen did it finally! His first ever Super series title, defeating THW in three games.

    Is it a fault if a player,s leg crosses the opponent's side of the court but even without touching the net?

    And 1996 OG champion. On another note, I can't help reminiscing about the amazing match both THW and VA coaches had during the 2003 WC. Kenneth and XXZ had a cracker of a match.

    Generally speaking, it is not a fault.

    But if your leg interfered with or affected your opponent, then it would be.

    No. You are allowed to set foot under the net, as long as it does not disturb your opponent.

    Much like finishing a shot with the racket over the net.

    As long as you don't touch the net, and don't bother your opponent, everything is fine.

    If Tian Houwei continues the way he did today in G2 and most of G3, we might see him rise up in WR and finally win his maiden SS/PSS title soon.

    Team CHN must study Axelsen to find his weakness.
