    A well-deserved victory for Ginting, we should see him more often on the winner's podium, I believe

    Who can stop Momota?
    It's Super Ginting (Mr. Beat Momota again).

    what an amazing badminton, just the best best level it can be, it is interesting that even Momota can struggle when you have this thought 'I have to do something extra today to win' and then mistakes happen, but movement from Anthony was something special, he was controlling rallies most of the times.

    Ginting is always better than JC at any point of time.

    I went to the track earlier this week trying to run that pace. I couldn't even hold 400m.

    After not winning the AG gold, Ginting totally deserved his Super 1000 title.

    Even if Momota has now lost to Ginting twice, I would still have him as a favourite for next match assuming they are both rested and physically fit. Momota could have won first game today but it would have changed nothing, he just run out of steam. No wonder since he has played so many matches in last 6 months.

    But credit to Ginting, he is playing well. His problem is inconsistency, too many early losses in tournaments.

    Have anyone seen an unseeded player play like this ever? Beating Legends, WC , WR1 & 2 , OlympicChamp.

    Frankly, I have never seen it!!

    Commentators agree with me, Steen mentioned already last week Momota is not 100% fit. But we never know, let's see next time they play what happens.

    Bravo!!! Excellent game! So much class and respect!
    Surprised that KM gassed out faster when Ginting played more grueling matches throughout the tournament.
    Can't wait for their next match!!!

    They did the same thing too in WC. Maybe it's a China thing?

    That string of top players beaten to win a major tournament is something only Momota managed within the last two years, so Ginting is no fluke at all. And he will be confident now going forward and leave the incosistency behind him. These two will battle it out for the top spot for many more matches to come, simply quite a bit over all the other players.
