    I saw him slipping his foot taking net shot. Probably a game changer at that time reminding him to not be a beast and go easy. Else injury comes back.

    News from Sportroad. hk. Viktor is getting marry. He is going to marry Natalia Koch Rohde, a former national team player, also the mother of their daughter named Vega who was born last October. The news was posted prior to All England, it should give him a boost. Momota better be ready.

    Viktor needs to watch out for Antonsen. Antonsen is a much more dangerous bogey-man for Axelsen than Jan O Jorgensen ever was.

    Agreed, on his day he has the game to overpower VA,both are blessed with power and great movement and never say die attitude, one area I think Antonsen is slightly better is psychologically he thinks with a clearer mind going through a bad patch, Victor tends to loose it upstairs.

    I feel this enforced lockdown has favoured power players, touch, feel and defensive players like Momota has lost that consistent precision which is vital to his game.

    it's what i've been saying for 40 years... and it is 100% bwf's doing.

    the ?'s bwf refuses to answer is: badminton is in an individual sport so why do you give the badminton associations 100% control over the players?
    • the associations contribute $0.00 to tournament prize money.
    • the major associations have zero incentive to help promote the sport of badminton in any financial manner because they're getting $ from their own gov't.
    • all associations get sponsors for themselves, not for the growth of the sport as a whole.
    • major badminton companies will still sponsor tournaments without the existence of associations.
    • major badminton companies will still sponsor athletes. without having to sponsor an entire country's team more money will be available for tournament prize money.
    • badminton athletes will pursue their own training (coaches/methods/entourage/sponsors) like other individual sport athletes.
    bwf's only duties are to write & enforce the rules, raise money for tournament prize money, get a broadcasting deal which would increase tournament prize money and manage the calendar.

    I wonder how much that plane trip cost. From Ukraine to Demark is pretty far. And not only private jet, a medical private jet with doctors on board!

    I'd assume real cheap out of pocket (hopefully), with the purchase of travel insurance during the pandemic.

    the fact he's not being transported for critical treatment or emergency surgical procedure a typical travel insurance policy would not cover it. otherwise i would think the team's policy would transport the other members also.

    my first thought was his sponsors are picking up the tab and/or his other va brand companies are doing very well: va collection (apparel line), va academy (youtube channel), va health (health supplements). it's nice to see a badminton player being able to afford such a contingency.

    he has a crystal clear priority: tokyo 2020+1
