    LZJ also one of those wankers who gets the luckiest net chords and instead of apologizing starts throwing poses. Thankfully, he's also as overrated as he's unsporting.

    I'm so glad to have been so wrong in thinking KM would get steam rolled by LZJ after seeing his match yesterday. He's back and will only get better!

    Yeah it seems apparent to me that Shida wants to retire but the coaches insisting on the tape. I will consider this match as lost. YutaArisa to decide the outcome I reckon.

    A good game, a good win by Momota, just what he needed to regain at least up to the 70% level of his former confidence back.

    LZJ after racing to a 6-0 start in G1 and then failed to keep the lead in the end, looked eager and impatient to get the second set but was outsmarted and outplayed by Momota, who played a well-controlled game by denying LZJ too many attacking opportunities. That , I think, made LZJ even more frustrated as he was more or less forced to construct his rallies a bit more than he would like to and bide his time to attack, thus playing into Momota's strengths , and as a result LZJ simply lost his script.

    It's obvious from this match that LZJ still has a lot to learn from his mentor LCW, in terms of the mind game, the intelligence, knowledge and understanding and of, course, the experience (which takes time to acquire); for example, after dropping the opening set where he thought he had the advantage initially, he should try , before G2 begins, to regather his thoughts, regroup, and then not rush matters but instead learn to read his opponent's game and anticipate better as well as play to his own strengths based on speed and aggression. My two cents.

    Now, I'm very much hoping to see a Momota - Viktor Axelsen face-off should it come about later in the tournament. Can't wait for it.

    Congrats to Aaron and Wooi Yik.

    I wish Malaysia had just sent their backup players today,maybe they would have lost,but this match isn't really important because Malaysia already qualified. Maybe they would have done well too,they played well against Egypt and being the underdog maybe they wouldn't have felt pressured unlike Malaysia's first team. But it's too late now.

    I'm worried Malaysian players especially Lee Zii Jia and Pearly and Thinaah lose their confidence for the next round because of this.

    Actually overall they did not do bad,they aren't as experienced as Japanese players,so it's expected they will lose. But I think Malaysian fans also expect so much from them because they do have talent,but it's too much pressure. They're treating this match like it's a final when it's not,it's just a group stage match which doesn't even affect the final outcome.

    Pearly Tan is not even that old anyway, and still has many years ahead
    I would think, regardless of the result, that this is still a good training and improvement chance for her

    The same goes to Lee Zi Jia

    Don't know about the rest though

    Anyway, I feel that the schedule is, in a way, (/can be) very unfair to the groups that are in group D
    I mean, they might play tomorrow morning against team from group A that played yesterday morning

    They should just use 4 courts yesterday and have a break today

    I have a feeling of the media pressure on Lee's shoulder, and he's also very eager to win at all costs.

    He should have relaxed a bit because Malaysia would go to the next round.

    yes but everybody will forget this thing soon. Just look back to Sudirman 2019. China have more rest time than Japan, and they win at the end.

    People just remember the winner.

    Yeah I watched a game where players were called six service faults. We NEEDED to see what the serves looked like. But the camera just zoomed in on the faces and never the serves.
