The surprising package will face mammoth task to continue his gallant Viktor Axelsen. The Dane outwits the lackdaisical Shi Yuqi, 21-13 / 21-13. The Chinese seems has no winning desire, quite frustrated how to crack Axelsen game plan. Former World Champion is much better in court coverage, defense, attacking smash and mental aspect. It needs long time for Shi to regain his confidence as looks like he succumbs to prolonged injury. Luckily for China to has veteran Chen Long as their young generation still far behind, title-holder checks into semifinal after experienced gruelling match to vanquish the resilient Chou Tien Chen. Full of long rallies and netplay to lift the shuttlecock and punished with hard smash, nothing extraordinary in this long duration and slow pace match. The Taiwanese runs out of steam in lase stage of final game and Chen propels attacking shots that ended the fatigue Chou. Most interesting quarters saw Anthony Ginting finally prevails and springs hope for INA MS camp after quite long time, 17 years since Taufik Hidayat and Sony Dwi Kuncoro standing on Athens 2004 podium. Ginting inconsistency problem is exhibited in second game and the beginning of decider, fortunately he's back with his attacking style to beat Anders Antonsen tactical game. Both players show good fight till the end as Antonsen relying mostly on his accurate placing to quell his aggressive opponent. Without underestimating Cordon, world number two Axelsen is highly likely will book final berth. Bottom-half semifina should be more appealing to watch, the speedy Ginting has positive head-to-head stats, 8-4 against Chen Long including last meeting in BWF World Tour Final, December 2019. On paper, it's gloom prospect for the vast experienced Chinese to balance his younger opponent quick and explosive style, interesting to wait how the match will going. FINALLY WD MEDAL! One of badminton powerhouses Indonesia has collected badminton Olympic medal in almost all five categories since Barcelona 1992 but WD is still elusive until Polii/Rahayu realize this big dream, thanks to their persistence, discipline to overcome adversity and tough times. The Indonesians extend their winning record over Lee SH/Shin SC, more compact in rotation plus sharp angle attacking smash by Rahayu than the hurry scurry Koreans. They will find arduous test in gold medal match, top contenders Chen/Jia who power past another Korea representative Kim SY/Kong HY, a convincing feat by the Chinese. FIRST EVER FOR TPE A sensational hat-trick early this year is no fluke for Lee Yang/Wang Chi Lin who present terrific play in final, thanks to their superiority in front area. Li/Liu can’t balance super fast TPE duo, solid placement and strong defense too. They beat number 1 (Minions), 2 (Daddies), 3 (Li/Liu) and 4th seed (Endo/Watanabe) en route to clinch MD crown, a very deserved gold medalist, impeccable! Tragic ending for INA MD following the Daddies fail to secure bronze medal. The momentum swings to Aaron Chia/Soh WY in decider, MAS pair increasing the tempo that send trouble to Ahsan/Setiawan. AN IDEAL WS FINAL Top-two seeds facing off in gold medal match, a rarity in Olympic Games where many upsets happen. Chen Yufei fulfills her higher-rankes status to He Bingjiao, both players have similar tactical awareness, the calmer and stay focus Chen control the match in final game as she more faster to trouble well-improved lefthander. Tai Tzu Ying- Sindhu involved in tight opening match as they're traded point each other until Tai seize the right moment at the end of game. More confident Taiwanese ace exhibits marvelous deceptive shots with better accuracy to outplay the Indian in the second, 21-18 / 21-12. One step closer for Tai to pocket title in major event, this time is the biggest one!
