    Nice to see players and coaching having fun in the warmup courts.

    I think Ginting looked fine yesterday and Chen Long looked tired. Win for Ginting, no doubt.

    Ginting should win. He was in good form yesterday. Chen Long will give a good fight though. Expecting a better match than Axelsen / Cordon

    Self destruction, delusion, contented with what he has achieved. All things a player of his caliber shouldn't have. Should have taken a cue from Momota, Axelsen.

    The mental aspect in the big tournaments like Olympics is the difference between top players. Good skill level can't win you matches if you are weak mentally. Mulyo Handoyo was able to instil confidence in India's MS and showcase what they were capable of achieving. Unfortunately, Gopichand was never able to restore that confidence with his departure. Until India find a coach who can instil that mental confidence they will continue to struggle.

    I wouldn't underestimate Chen Long. I remember his China Open 2019 match where he gave Momota a run for his money
