    KSR/KKJ backhand defense was a treat to see. Amazing backhand punches from KSR during this game. So happy for the korean duo :) :) Hope they go on to do something special.

    Kim/Kim equipped themselves well. Saw the match from 20-20 onwards.

    Minions dont give me a good look. Gideon is just walking around after each point.

    i have to say their height disadvantage is making them vulnerable as they age. I dont blame his fighting spirit but Gideon smash is v easy to be returned with no steepness. Prolly the weakest smasher in INA lineup right now (Rian Marthin Yere all has stronger smash)

    Beating minions is so easy nowadays so it's not that surprising, if they can beat fajar/rian or ahsan/hendra that would be something.

    it's the same situation with momota, now the minion's defeat is no longer an upset.
    IMHO minions and bagas/fikri maybe can be separated, who knows the new combination result is good,
    After all, INA still has 4 other doubles that are still competitive, no need to worry lah coach Herry IP...

    i have no confidence in Bagas. Weak smash as well and look fat, just taller then Gideon but weak. Costed them the match vs LiuOu with strings of needless errors. Won the AE just like LeeWang that won OG , have to say they are prolly even luckier.

    Tsuneyama spent his HS days in Osaka, and call it his second home. He really wants to do well here. And, it's not as though Kidambi has the upper hand in terms of H2H. A loss was always a possibility.

    Gideon need to play with a strong backcourt player imo, he's simply not reliable anymore as a backcourt player especially after his injury. for kevin it's very tricky, he's a great player but not everyone can play with him, he need a partner like rian who are good in the flat game and have great attack but the problem with rian is he's also very error prone, not really a steady player.

    I think it's worth to try fajar/gideon and kevin/rian partnership, I think gideon/fajar would be good because fajar is much more reliable at the back than kevin, gideon job would be much easier, I know fajar/rian are in good form this year but who knows rotating these 2 pair could produce an even better pair, just like candra/tony/sigit/halim back then.

    I don't think Rian will put up with Kevin.
    He gets even more screwed up when every time he makes a mistake, he's got Kevin's "typical response."
    Pairing Kevin with Yere or Daniel martin might be worth a try.

    Kevin/Ahsan will be best if Setiawan decides to go retirement...

    My friend told me that some people will have problem with covid 19 (post-covid syndrome).

    Can Kevin and Momota be those cases

    4 of 5 INA pairs are out today, let's see whether Fajar/Rian can make it to QF or not today...

    All Indonesia MD seem like they got a discount rate if they all booked the same flight to leave japan.

    Ahsan/hendra aren't on the national team anymore, but they still practice together with the other players.

    Meh pair, as we can see in thomas cup and local club competition.

    INA WD is on the up. I think they can have good chance to put 2 reps in Paris with the MAS pair injured. Pratiwi is the kind physical specimen i want to see.
