    I think Axelsens headband is a bit too tight to that kind of the match :D

    yea but there is no surprise if you can not deal with your nerves - you will not win, despite the fact that you are the better player

    Shocking number of unforced errors from Ginting and Axelsen. Now that Momota is not playing even these lower category players are winning tournaments.

    I think if you combine them both it would be mental disaster with not being able to move from 2nd set actually - so no chance against Momota

    Very disheartening to see Ginting lose this way despite being the best player on circuit, may be he should try a different coach once, may be who can help him calm nerves during games.

    Axelsen should give walkover to Ng Ka Long

    Mental collapse more than anything else.

    Indian players generally tend to be very nervous, but Mulyo did well with them, may be Ginting should take his help.

    at 11-7, I think Ginting will go final by 90%, and go to drink water.

    When I back Ginting is 12 and Viktor almost on the way to 18

    still don't know what happened

    yeah but i dont think he is the best player in this tournament. Axe is definitely the favourite (1.5) no matter what. there will always be twist and turns but usually the favs won.

    They get tested every day...

    Basic cold/ cough have not disappeared because of covid-19.

    Surprisingly enough, any or every cold symptom does not equal covid. A dreadful side effect of this pandemic, along with many others, is that some people have been scared shitless.

    I hope Viktor's cold isn't getting worse, it's gonna be a close one tomorrow anyway.

    Axelsen has really established himself as the second best player on tour. He is the only one apart from Momota, who has achieved a level of consistency. And while many players look out of form in Thailand (which is normal) and quite a lot are looking out of shape (which I find puzzling) he seems to be neither.

    Hmm , I think Ginting and Axelsen are tied for 2nd place. honestly thought Ginting was playing better but somehow lost the plot in the end. But credit to Axelsen. Hope to see them clash again, entertaining match.
