    Li Shifengs gameplay is quite basic,but he has managed to defeat players like Kunlavut and Lakshya before,didn't manage to watch those matches so I'm not sure how he did it. I suppose being junior rivals he probably has studied them in depth and discovered their secret weaknesses.

    Well,he lost to Jojo before,now losing to Chico,it seems Indonesian players are his weak point.

    Hm, Chico might have a shot at the title after all. He is getting better and better in this tournament.

    If Chico improved himself as top 10 players.

    Indonesia just won the lottery, they will take Thomas Cup for sure

    I will say it again..even a S100 tournament infrastructure is better than this sh*t..I say all players who participated in this tourny should be medalled alone for participation and taking the mental and physical stress.

    And to those who actually get to Semis and Finals..hats off to these legends who despite the crappiest drift and worse conditions managed to stand at the podium..My heartiest respect to all the players

    But this tournament definitely didnt deserve their presence

    The youtube live streaming of Court 3 stopped halfway through the WD match... What a mess compared to European Championships..

    Look at the way Loh Kean Yew swinging his racket. I wish Nishimoto have a new coach.

    LKY lost to Jojo but based on the match, they are probably about on the same level. Did WHY beat Ginting?

    I don't think he has beaten Jojo before,I could be wrong about that though. I recall they played against each other at the Olympics as well,also a close match.

    And I think WHY should be the favourite to win now,don't think Chico will beat Jojo,its probably 50:50 between LZJ and WHY. If WHY meets Jojo again,I just feel like he would repeat his victory at the Korean tournament.
