    With yesterday's semi-finals victory, Momota is currently qualified for the WTF at #7.
    If he wins today, he will still be #7.
    But if he loses, he will be #8 behind Antonsen.
    So next week will be decisive for the WTF qualification.

    Without the French open mess-up, he would have been qualified.

    You could sense it at the Denmark Open, but now it's clear for all to see: Momota is back!:)
    Not a single game lost this week.

    It is safe to say now. Clinical performance throughout the week. Resounding wins against RG, CTC, AA

    He is extremely fatigued. There is no doubt that he will beat Axelsen again; it is just a question of whether that will be possible this year.

    After the 1st round of the Indonesia Open,
    Momota is now #6 for WTF, and he will become #4 if he wins tomorrow, overtaking Popov and Sen,
    and I think sure to be qualified.
    However, if ever he loses, several people behind him can kick him out of WTF:
    Gemke, CTC, Antonsen and Tsuneyama.

    So tomorrow's game is crucial.

    Losing is not something terrible, saving energy for World Champion, Momota can lose all tournaments but have to win WC this time

    Vicky Axelsen would be standing tall in his path.

    Antony SG would be eager to bludgeon him.

    Chokemon wants revenge against him.

    Gluten-free Prannoy wants a taste of him.

    WTF and doing well at this Super Series 1000 would be useful to keep the #1 ranking, but of course, a third World Crown would top that.

    Even though Japan has so many players, only players with name starting with 'K' shines in MS.
    Kento Momota, Kenta Nishimoto, Kanta Tsuneyama, Koki niwa etc

    Gemke and Antonsen cannot both qualify so if they are ahead of Momota, and Momota is 9 on the list he can qualify

    Momota win Loh today and Mo will be sure to fight WTF, but It's dangerous to play WTF after Indonesia Open 1000.

    can be exhausted and injuried like French Open

    You jinxed him. On the bright side, he'll have a break for the WC.

    Despite his loss, KM is almost qualified for WTF, thanks to Tsuneyama's loss.
    The only way KM can miss out is if both Antonsen and Gemke win their quarterfinals.
    and LKY wins the tournament.

    It could be a blessing in disguise, giving extra-rest for WTF and the World Championship.

    No no, should skip WTF, 1 week after WTF will not be enought.

    Look at Lee Zii Jia and Loh Kean Yew after come from Germany Open, they are out at Indonesia Master so soon
