    In fact, that’s the slightest fear on LS’s future growth. Having a solid basic game is great, but having just that is a problem. However, I still strongly believe that age is very much on his side to improve, and none of his junior mates are far technically superior than him

    Even i thought that too. His game need so much tuning. He need to work on his drop shots more than relying on power game. Now he is just 20. But still if he improves well to mix it up, then he will be a force to reckon with.

    But I meant to say this about LKY, but hey if it rings true for LS, why not.

    I don't have time to watch the final matches today, but the results make me surprised.

    Congrats

    Definitely too early to say for LKY, people need to hold their judgement for a little longer…

    Wow, I beg to differ on this comparison. As much as I know, LKY’s play style is totally opposite to that of CTC. Risk-Return comparison will put LKY and CTC across opposite sides of the spectrum.

    Big win for host India to bag two titles through men's category and the more special narration is they toppled strong contenders in opening BWF tour of 2022 season. IND next big thing to roar in MS constellation, Lakshya Sen halts man of moment Loh Kean Yew in two straight-games, it was close contest as Sen implemented right tactic to launch an all out attack, faster and more aggressive style to dictate Singaporean ace who lack of precision, powerful smash and modest defense in this match. Newly-crowned World Champion seemed little bit frustrated when Sen could anticipate well almost all his quality shots including the battle of tight net play. In MD match, Ahsan/Setiawan who had reached twilight of their career can't quell younger opponent quick play, the Indians were really sharp, both pairs involved in efficient pattern, one two shots to score point rather than did long rallies.

    Thailand rules women's discipline with two victories, Supanida Katethong unabled to continue excellent run, the unforced errors ruined her winning script despite she had affordable prospect to top podium here with good attacking and deceptive shot. There's no stark contrast of technical awareness between two finalists but Busanan is more steady, composed and patient player throughout the match including crucial stages. Aimsaard sisters won WD crown in one-way traffic atmosphere against the Russians. A surprise created in mixed doubles, world #182 Terry Hee/Tan WH stunned higher-ranked Chen/Peck, the former played nothing to lose just enjoyed their final match, contrary with the under pressure Malaysians.

    Thats disrespect for the true BIG TOURNAMENT PLAYERS you know what makes a player turn into a BIG TOURNEY player ? Its their MULTIPLE MEDALS at the Biggest Events of Badminton

    Examples of BIG TOURNAMENT LEGENDS -:

    1.Lin Dan 2 OG 7 WC
    2.Lee Chong Wei 3 OG 4 WC
    3.Zhang Ning 2 OG 5 WC
    4.Pusarla V Sindhu 2 OG 5 WC
    5.Carolina Marin 1 OG 3 WC
    6.Gao Ling 4 OG 9 WC
    7.Susi Susanti 2 OG 3 WC
    8.Chen Long 3 OG 4 WC


    LKY is a great player and has a bright future but he would need at least an Olympic Medal and few more World Championship Medals including few CONSECUTIVE

    All these legends I mentioned are known as the Big Tournament players because of their sheer ability to suddenly up their game at the grandest stage and their medal count speak for themselves.

    Brian Yang has covid

    Yeo JiaMin has covid.

    I wonder who else will come down with it. Not good for the tour if the players are at danger of contracting covid.

    This Omicron variant is milder in symptoms especially in double vaxxed. Granted it's much more contagious than Delta, but with athletes playing an indoor sport without masks, there's no chance of zero covid happening. They'll recover within a week and be training soon after. If society is open with restaurants and air travel, I can't see why tournaments should not go on, as long as they have the proper testing and isolation procedures in place. Once the athletes are triple vaxxed, then the risks of covid will be much lower. This would seem to be the way forward as we learn to live with an endemic covid in this post pandemic world.

    @Baddie lover mentioned it’s currently a peak wave in India. Player safety is important. It’s not as if the players will be certain of getting back to full health. Long covid is a concern as is post viral myocarditis.

    yes, milder symptoms in the normal population but these athletes are not normal population.

    Anyway, we will see how many players will get it and their state of recovery. More opportunities for other players to step up

    Yea, thoroughly excellent player, who i think will do great things.Really fun to watch, he has so many shots in his repetoire. Ran Christie close in the Thomas Cup, actually was outplaying him for most of the match.
