Play long rallies JC
How can JC lose G1
Bad finish to the end of the game by JC, that was the plan but the ending execution left wanting
Because VA played a fantastic backhand drive at the last point.
The strokes just has too many errors and inconsistent..
Viktor is still looking good. Only a faster player like LKY can beat him. Need the need for speed. If LKY can play it right.
WR1 if Axelsen wins the title.
Asy vs RI...finally it isn't AK vs asy lol

Lky Solid. Hope he doesnt crack up tmr.
Foreign Talent like you.
Congrats LKY for making the finals tomorrow!
It has been one magical week for Loh Kean Yew, as he strolls to the Final after another flawless performance against Rasmus Gemke. He now faces Viktor Axelsen for the biggest match of his career.
LKY is quite familiar with VA's game and vice versa, let's see which of the two can come up with something to deal with the other tomorrow. Admittedly, though, I've to give VA a slight edge, however,certainly not insurmountable for LKY in the form he's in these two weeks.
Jonathan's match with Viktor earlier showed the latter is not in a class of his own, the more so when Prannoy managed to upset him the previous week. So, may the better player of the day lift the trophy.
As for the WS, hope to see Intanon Ratchanok breaks her title drought but I have to say, An Seyoung has been making steady progress lately, it'd be tricky.
As much as I would like underdogs to win but it's tough for LKY especially against VA
Hope LKY makes the breakthrough and get his maiden Super 1000 title.
Back to back final for Korean number one An Se Young, thanks for her consistency, adequate fitness level and solid determination. Fierce resistance was delivered by Thai number two who troubled An in both games, the interesting part of this match coming in second set when Chochuwong was trailing badly 2-11 then she accelerated the tempo of the game which combined with sharp attacking shots and pushed ASY twist and turn to chase the shuttlecock, unfortunately Chochuwong mishitted the shuttlecock into the net at last point. The resurgent Intanon secures final spot after a string of uninspiring performances due to shoulder injury and personal matters. Former champion eliminates Pusarla Sindhu who only showed her best in opening game then being simply error-proned in continuation of this tie.
The Olympic Champions Polii/Rahayu are back to winning track but the road to last round not so comfortable, especially in the last two matches including to overcome the Thai duo Kititharakul/Prajongjai, trading points until the end of the game.The Indonesians hotshots are expected to repeat the finest form in finale against the on-fire Matsuyama/Shida, a young Japanese pair who are on the rise amid their senior absence. World #9 pair edge past Korea's debutants Baek HN/Lee YR who have a powerful attacking smashes.
As predicted mixed doubles top two seeds advance to final, nothing can hinder the toughness and consistency of the Thai duo and Tokyo OG bronze medalists who have dominated international scenes post-Olympics in the absence of the Chinese best pairs. Puavaranukroh/Taerattanachai had a hard time to break Ko SH/Eom HW defense in 80 minute energy sapped match. Meanwhile Watanabe /Higashino are too strong and fast for the Danish pair Christiansen / Boje who lost again in 5th meeting. The Japanese is clear favourite to clinch title today.
Men's doubles final replay will contest The Minions and the rapid rise Hoki/Kobayashi after last week INA Masters when Indonesia's mainstay suffered a narrow defeat in a tight three-game battle.Slowly but sure Gideon/Sukamuljo have rediscovered their best form, a good asset heading into the World Championships in the next two weeks. Accumulated fatigue will be the primary test for the finalists after going through a series of non-stop matches so far, the home favorites quelled Indian combination Rankireddy/Shetty resistance while the Japanese pair beat compatriots Koga/Saito also in two straight-games.
Loh Kean Yew continued his brilliant streak, earning maiden final spot of S1000 level and will challenge another Danish player The Olympic Champion Viktor Axelsen, his sparring partner when trained in Dubai. Loh powered past Rasmus Gemke, dominated entire match and only allowed his opponent little chance to balance long rallies and develop his own game, Loh excels in speed, tight net play, accuracy and court coverage. If Loh wins here to scoop massive 12,000 point, he will qualify for the Finals next week. Earlier match, home representative Jonatan Christie unabled to take benefit of the tiring Axelsen, as usual can't maintain focus on critical points in the opening game. The Indonesian who depends on hard smash needs more shots variation than readable pattern.
