Here comes my full summary from the world championships. It became longer and more extensive than I had planned and took some time to write also. The text had to be divided in a couple of different posts to fit. I start with commenting some selected matches from day 3 and onwards. I made separate posts for day 1 and 2 in the thread for day 1 to QF, so look those posts up if you want to read about the first two days. Day 3 matches: Kidambi Srikanth vs Misha Zilberman: KS was slow and sluggish, he lost G1 before eventually winning the match. Either I suspect he has some injury preventing him from going 100% or he is just happy to be a mediocre player nowadays (compared to his former standard). Loh Kean Yew vs Thomas Rouxel: Very hard-fought opening game which TR wins. LKY comes back however to win G2 and G3. I felt LKY due to having a bit more effective footwork and better skill/ more deceptive strokes overall used less energy compared to TR which made TR run out of gas earlier and therefore losing. Chen Long vs Lee Cheuk Yiu: LCY was not holding back, he attacked 100 % whenever he had the opportunity, G1 was close, however LCY was faulted at the net (I couldn’t see what happened) and eventually lost G1. In G2 he became too tired to attack as much and lost. Minions vs KOR: I had really looked forward to watching the minions live and they started well by winning G1, but then lost G2&3. KOR defence was strong, minions had a hard time to score points, the hall conditions looked a bit slow which favours KOR I guess. The end was close and dramatic. MF threw his racket after losing and both minions looked sad all the way when walking out from court. Endo/Wata vs Lamsfuss /Seidel: The crowd went crazy to support GER, I didn’t watch the whole match because I had to go and eat but the first 1,5 games it looked like JPN had a hard time to score points, the GER defence was strong and they could often turn the defence around to win the rallies. A big upset.
