    Usually, he is very very humble. He wont celebrate that much. But, after prakash padukone, a player from his academy wins a medal. That made him little bit overwhelming.

    I have observed that he often throws his racket when he wins. Maybe as a means of celebration. But you are right. Something could happen wrong if it hits somebody.

    Sen probably, it also better if LS wins cause LS has better chance of beating LKY/AA/LZJ thann KS.

    But Kidambi is in very good form. He is also more skilled and more experienced.

    You never know when/how KS can choke, in a WC semis/final I am not so confident in KS.

    Yup, ASY pulls herself up by the bootstraps in G2 and surprisingly it's AY's turn to return the compliment by lacklustre play to give us a decider ...

    Yes but he doesn’t choke against fellow Indians.

    ASY needs to build some attacking game over her solid defense. Playing clears all day long won’t cut it.

    ASY looking tired, a 3-setter is no good for her, the more so against the super retriever and runner with unmatched stamina.

    Great tactical play by Yamaguchi in the third, much more agressive.

    Broke the rythm of ASY

    She had some brilliant counter cross court def that really broke ASY rythm.

    Im afraid Lakshya Sen is tired after his long match, I predict a comfortable win for Srikanth

    Congrats to India in MS! India will come away with at least a silver medal for MS at the WC.

    And of course, Momota's withdrawal, which could have impacted the top half of the bracket.

    Nevertheless, players should take the opportunity when it's presented to them. Viktor Axelsen had a horrible record against Momota and couldn't really beat Momota, heading into the 2017 WC. Momota was not in the 2017 WC because he was still on suspension, and Viktor Axelsen took advantage of it in 2017.

    A huge opportunity was presented to Lakshya Sen and Srikanth Kidambi in this WC and they took advantage of it to get to the semi-finals of the WC.
