    If the Minions really display bad sportmanship, they will just return long every shot they receive.
    Instead, they are "training" their rally games now...especially if pitted against the Japanese pair in the Final.
    Ong/Teo vs Minions increasingly are also becoming more like rally games in recent matches.

    Once Kevin is provoked, he will not stop :)
    This match is a foregone conclusion but the fun is starting :)

    Instagram actors in INA can have 10-20m followers.

    Kevin will prolly gain more fansgirl doing those lol. They like young players doing these kinds of things. Youthful spirits id say

    He probably worked harder than actors.

    A boring 2nd set is rescued by a totally entertaining 3rd set....the 2 Danish players practically entertain Kevin all the way! Upping their antics too, together with him.....and it all ends well with no bad blood whatsoever at the end :)

    Back to serious stuffs, we now await the Draw for the SF for both INA pairs.
    If the Minions are drawn with Ong Yew Sin/Teo Ee Yi, it will be their 4th encounter in just a little over a month!
    If they are drawn with the TPE pair again, it will be a cracker!

    As for the Olympic champions Greysia Polii/Apriyani Rahayu, I don't think they can beat either Kim/Kong or the in-form Matsuyama/Shida.

    One positive point is that the INA young MD pair of Pramudya Kusumawardhana/Yeremia Erich Yoche Yacob Rambitan (nicknamed "the Prayer") can take part in the World Tour Finals and involved in at least 2 matches against top-class opponents in Ong/Teo and Hoki/Kobayashi.

    They are expected to win this match against the Popov brothers and win a valuable 6,600 ranking pts to move up to No 21 in the ranking table next week!

    And the INA pair did that in straight-sets 21-15, 21-16 in just 38 mins! They need to strengthen their stamina, focus & defense as they claimed that they were exhausted in the 2nd and 3rd set against the MAS pair yesterday, after expending most of their effort in the first-set.

    another sultry defeat to Ong and Teo would put a massive dent to Kevin's confidence i reckon.

    KNOCK-OUT DRAW ~ two repeat draws in men's category, inevitable occurrence.

    No chance of that of course....and so far the Minions have a 7-0 record against Ong/Teo.

    My very bad. I misidentified Ong/Teo to Aaron/Wooi.
