    I know that BWF has a live broadcast on the official YouTube channel, but what I want to ask is how to watch the live stream or replay on the BBC website.

    The only thing that can stop his smash is the net.

    so Endo beating Minions twice and didnt end up winning the title in GZ..haha life must be unfair. so much so for beating but forgot the grand prize.

    This time they beat nemesis AhsanHendra and if they dont win the title? See, if they beat the 2 INA pair then the title is theirs. But coming up against 2 INA pair in the same tournament, not many players have chance to beat both, imo. They have the chance to do so for 2 straight tournaments that they played in. Failed the first one, let see...

    FINAL (12.00pm) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...A9F3CE-A822-49C8-A58A-BF165D73CB64&d=20200315

    upload_2020-3-15_9-57-44.png

    Two final spots each for four nations, China-Chinese Taipei-Indonesia-Japan. Denmark and Thailand representative fill the remaining two slots.

    JAPAN-CHINA AFFAIR
    A good prospect for Japan number two to grab one of badminton prestigious titles since lost thrice in World Championships final. They look stable along this tournament and won last three meetings against final opponents Du Y/Li YH who save China blushes in this category in the setback of world number one and defending champion Chen/Jia. Fukushima/Hirota eliminate the Olympic Champion Matsumoto/Takahashi convincingly, 21-12 / 21-12 while second-ranked Chinese combination tackle Lee SH/Shin SC, thanks to their good tactic, didn't lift shuttlecock too much instead of playing flat drive and fast interception from front area.

    AXELSEN TO EXCEL
    Viktor Axelsen snatches final spot once again in the oldest tournament, he experienced very tough battle to eliminate Malaysian new leading man Lee Zii Jia, it could go either way in gruelling 73 minutes of play, really close contest until 19-19 then Lee net shot got fault by the umpire and the winning momentum shifted swiftly to former world champion. A similar type of play between these two tall men to bombard each other with lethal smashes that preceded by long rallies. On contrary, Chou Tien Chen only spent brief time, 26 minutes to complete his semifinal match following Anders Antonsen retired, hurt his right ankle and wheel-chaired off the court. Head to head stats favour to Axelsen but we never know whether the lucky charm took sides to the Taiwanese, Chou has relatively comfortable draw, never meet the seeded player until semifinal but Antonsen injured.

    INDONESIA MOMENTUM
    Ellis/Smith gallant run must end in final four, they replicated second game turnaround when the Indonesian pair had hefty lead but losing narrowly, 21-23. But Jordan/Oktavianti were unfazed and displaying excellent form in deciding game, 21-11. Second time for Praveen Jordan to reach All England final after 2016 edition, this time with different partner and look like they have winning momentum particularly after reversed the fortune against toughest foes Wang/Huang at quarterfinal. Dechapol/Taerattanachai prevail in roller coaster and fast furious match to topple Koreans Seo SJ/Chae YJ, really physical demanding tie. Thai aces should be wary to final opponents, suffered defeat in last three encounters.

    2019 FINAL REPLAY
    It's fourth straight All England final for Tai Tzu Ying, she looks so composed and calm to outwit one of top contenders Carolina Marin. The Spanish had trouble to control the drift and producing many uncharacteristic errors, her attacking shots weren't too effective to break Tai TY solid defense. None but defending champion Chen Yufei who will be last round hurdle for former world number one, the fully confident Chinese knows well that she could pass Nozomi Okuhara even when trailing behind most times in second game to exploit her rival weakness, pushing to baseline corner and punchs with big smash. A high quality final showdown to wait, will Tai reclaim her All England crown?

    CRACKING THE CODE
    The Minions dispose Lee Y/Wang CL quite smoothly who practically only could deliver decent fight in opening game and first half of second game. After interval break, Gideon/Sukamuljo show their real color to pressure Taiwanese duo with fast interception to earn point by point quickly. A daunting task for World number one to face their boogeymen Endo/Watanabe who look sharp and consistent how they beat Russian towering duo Ivanov/Sozonov. The Indonesians must thinking hard how to stop five straight losing to this Japanese pair, if Endo/Watanabe prevailed, they will create history, becoming first Japanese pair to nail men's doubles title in All England.

    you can say some pair have some boogey opponents but If Endo is that good , why only 1SS his entire career .. even that tournament WR1 didnt play..

    WR1 can lose in Olympics its just 1 tournament getting tense or whatever..

    But Will never understand how Endo only has 1 SS his entire career. His style of play can beat any pair in the world.

    2 factors may explain why.

    1. when Endo was partnering Hayakawa, the MD was competitive, much more than today, i'd say. the chinese FHF/CY, korean JJS/LYD and then LYD/YYS, indonesian MK/HS and then MA/HS, danish CM/MB, malaysian TBH/KKK were at their peak if i'm correct with the timeline.

    2. Park Joo Bong joined Japan Badminton Association in 2004 and took some time to work his magic.

    They didn't lose exclusively to those top pairs in the finals. They just couldn't win in the finals. Similar to Chai/Biao

    Yeah never think they are inferior to those pairs.. if you look at how Kamson or LiLiu or AhsanHendra especially Kamson or LiLiu they still can win 4/5SS and feels like inferior than EndoKawa vs rest of the top pairs in the past.

    In the end only the title matters, no one cares if you can beat the other player many times if it doesnt end up with many titles. Minions can beat AhsanHendra, LiLiu & Kamson more than 10times (WR2-4) and deliver the titles, thats what matters.

    Endo can only blame himself if he loses tonight, i wonder if he is overthinking type of player. The memories of all the AllEngland Final loses will be playing heavy in his mind throughout.

    marin pushed deep and with aka's misjudging, it almost always stay in. But vs tai, marin hit long all the time

    3 or 4 times marin return the shot which should go wide, once she lost the point

    its nice to see the slow drop shot

    1. how can a player who was ranked #1 longer than anyone have a bad draw? being #1 means you can't have a bad draw.
    2. not as many tourney's? there's still 1 wc/og opportunity per year... every year since 2005. didn't he play in nearly all of them during his 17 year pro career? that would mean he's had more opportunities (14) @ a wc/og gold than anyone.
    3. 6 silvers in those means he made 6 finals, which means the draw isn't the problem. only the goat has been in more finals (9).
    i'm not sure how your reasoning is valid...

    It's good to see that endo finally decided to be more agressive in his play. when he played with hayakawa and in the beginning of his partnership with yuta he seems to be too passive, just happy to defend all the way, but now there's more purpose in his play and defense, looking for counter attack as soon as possible and didn't gave the intiative as easily as in the past.
