    So, someone told me that 10 consecutive losses mean something ?

    Throughout their career , Minions have always attack. I think nowadays they can become a fully more defensive pair.

    and let the pair who wants to win attack and smash. Thats just the way it is in life...

    That said, HokiKoba is motivated and gonna win this. If they win 6-8 SS, they are likely be the best JPN pair there is.

    With motivation, HokiKoba should win this. They were still chasing 9 points deficit.

    Maybe minions were affected by the pandemic and the obvious things that come with it.

    I hope Momota gets the dub today

    The Japanese pair Takuro Hoki/Yugo Kobayashi breaks their duck in beating the Minions in 3-sets 21-11, 17-21, 19-21. They fully deserved their victory as they show more commitment and aggression, especially the first and third-sets. The INA pair was leading at 9-7 in the rubber-set, only to lose focus when they challenged the accurate return of the JPN pair, leaving the JPN pair to win a series of points. The Minions levelled the score at 19-19, but it was not to be.

    The JPN pair will certainly be an able successor to Endo/Hayakawa as well as Kamura/Sonoda, with 2 World Tour titles (750 and 1000) in the past 1 month.

    The INA pair is emotionless.

    Congrats to HokiKoba 2nd SS title.

    19-19 anyone could have won it.

    The Japanese really needed to win this match, and so they did. Kudos to them for breaking their 0-10 H2H record against Minions. It's been a long time coming, too.

    It will still be a toss-up. But if the Minions play to their strengths the next time they meet, it seems unlikely for Hoki/Koba.

    Gideon still smiles on the podium, i think he is happy with his performance this week.

    Feels like the world is fine as long he still smiles.

    If you look at Minionst last 3 Finals loss, its basically deuce situation. Win that game and they will have won the matches.

    Often times they come back from being down during previous rounds, but i dont remember them winning 21-19 in the Finals (decider). 28-6 record. Most of that 28 is Final won easily. The harder one like IM 2018 and JO 2019 its still like 21-18 or 21-17

    But i guess they will trade that 3 deuce losses or 10 more if it needed for that AsianGames 24-22 win.

    I think they will trade 10SS titles for Olympic title - simply because when you can win that many, you have the right to win. and thats about the number of titles HendraKido and CaiFu won throughout their career.
