    The possibility is there and the probability not low as he's found his mojo, and he's declared his intention to add the only major title missing in his resume besides the WC and the OG.

    Let's wait and see, as without LCW, Lin Dan and VA, the best non-Asian MS, I guess only Chen Long, Shi Yuqi, and, perhaps, a couple others, eg Anthony Ginting, Son Wan Ho, Kantaphon Wangcharoen (?), Tommy Sugiarto, can offer real challenge to Kento Momota.

    Now, I'll just wait for the AG draw.

    Getting 15 points equals almost winning? In that case Momota almost lost to Tommy Sugiarto and Anthony Ginting as well. Since Momota has only lost to Lee Chong Wei recently we don't know how much better he could play if needed. Maybe he just plays 80% of maximum and is happy to win 21-15, maybe not. Like today it looked he could have played better / faster if needed.

    You were the one who was wrongly interpreting Srikanth's words and expecting him to praise Momota to the core . Right!. I don't need to explain it to you.
    Ha ha. 80% playing and all this exaggerating .. My goodness. He played whatever he played now and the opponent lost his patience and made so many unforced errors.
    what to say..
    Only future will tell. Wait for some more time. May be , he is having the form of his life now. Enjoy until you can .
    Take care.

    How does anyone make the jump from PVS to LCW? Have you not watched badminton before 2016, ever? No way she is even 2 levels below him.

    So Denmark getting 0 medals was only slightly below expectations according to Vittinghus? I would put that in a category of its own called "countries that performed the most disastrous WC result in a decade". Unlike Korea who didnt even send a decent squad because they focus on a different event (Asian Games), Denmark sent as many players they were allowed.

    I would say that

    India should be slightly below expectation
    Denmark should be well below expectation

    But the rest are right

    Hmm let me see..

    MS:
    VA out in QF by CL in straight sets
    AA out in R3 by KM but managed to steal a game
    HKV out in R3 in straight sets

    MD:
    Boe/Mo out in R3 in straight sets
    Astrupp/Rasmussen out in R3 in straight sets
    Conrad/Kolding out in QF lost to LC in his bad days

    XD:
    Christiansen/Paddersen out in QF in straight sets lost to LYH

    and the rest..

    Maybe AA managed to steal a game and to "scare" KM made it up for everything else?

    What is there to predict? Just calculate the points and you will get the precise ranking..

    Here are Steen's take-aways from WC.

    He said "...it seems Momota coud have won wearing flip-flops." LOL

    He's honest about Denmark's performance while also poking fun at himself: "Denmark hasn't done this badly since I was a coach" :D

    Looks like Carolina Marin continuing her way to claim the GOAT status. Simply incredible. And Momota showing his true power hehe.
