    TTY when she is not making errors is unbeatable.

    Ratchanok slowing down the pace. Realized that she cannot keep up. Better strategy

    Well most of the players and viewers and spectators are Asians but,let's be fair as we also need the Europeans to host some of the tournaments to ensure badminton is a worldwide sport, not Asian's. We live in a globalized world.

    The two best WS players at the moment battling it out.

    After seeing what Intanon did to Marin in G3, write her off in this match at your own peril. Still too early to say.

    So what's wrong with having TTY vs RI as the first match? Both Europeans and Asians would be happy with that arrangement.

    This is still a European Tournament.

    If you want Badminton to expand as a global sport, you have to cater to European and Easter Time viewers.

    IR looks the more tired of the two

    Ratchanok plays to the corners and it doesn't work so well. She seems to be more comfortable if she plays within the court a bit more.

    Oh, I didn't know you're talking about the match scheduling for WS alone, I have in mind the whole event.

    Perhaps the organizer wanted to give Intanon a bit more time to rest seeing how grueling her match with Marin was, by scheduling WS as the last match of the day ?

    Beautiful intensity from Ratchanok. She is not giving up. Loving it

    If this goes into a decider I favor TTY due to her superior fitness.

    Actually IR was off-balance when she played that desperate shot.

    Ratchanok definitely not playing to the extreme corners as much.
