    Good to see Chen Long so pumped up, and glad to see Sun Jun again who's probably engaged by XXZ to help bring Chen Long up to speed for the Thomas Cup, I guess.

    Liu/Zhang vs Markus/Kevin :) How will these two pairs do this time? Hopefully both could give their best.

    Momota just knows how to keep Axelsen moving and guessing the whole time, he has the knack of playing Viktor who can't seem to read Kento's game well enough

    YESSSS! There we go, Momota comes back to beat Axelsen. What a performance, Amazing. Im considering becoming like Ninetailed fox is but about Momota instead of Lin Dan.

    Viktor is not in his best form. Losing badly to LCW, then barely winning aginst Son Wan Ho, and now getting demolished in the 2nd set against Momota.

    Not to take away from Momota, since Momota had a 2-0 record against Viktor in the finals of the SS. But I think if it were the WC Viktor from last year playing Momota now, the match would have been closer.

    This MD1 INA vs CHN is a bit too tame after what we had yesterday.

    Head Coach Park Joo Bong's prediction for the Uber Cup was spot on: 2 Singles and 1 Double for Japan. I hope that he can be proven wrong with regard to the Thomas Cup.

    Zhang Nan's racket skills (deception, double actions, short movement) on drives are incredible.

    and it is done without gay shaft that is ax88

    those long shots on the back line by minions are because of the inconsistency of ax88 shaft
