    Ratchanok is one of my favourite player to watch but she seems to struggle physically or mentally (not sure). I don’t know what are the difficulties she is facing in 2018 but I like to think she could/should get better results.

    Yeah, but it's not only that for me. Just look at the scenes between the two players after the match. They knew they had done something special and both could smile about it. I surely wanted Momota to win, but how could anyone begrudge SWH? Always puts the shift in, always a gentleman.

    In instances like these, the sport transcends winning/losing, stats, and prize money and connects people. I shook my head in disbelief at the end and had a big smile on my face, just like the players.

    See, I even forgot about that. :D
    Do you know if Park does another camp? Find it hard to imagine he won't do one before the finale.

    It used to be one camp before Finale... IIRC last year there was a camp. I haven't checked about that for 2018 Finale...

    Sometimes RI is too ambitious/creative with her shots and makes a lot of mistakes in the process.

    She is not patience because she doesn't have good stamina and struggling with on/off injuries.

    Sung Ji Hyun is moving & playing really well today. I didn't see her games against previous opponents but it's good to see her playing at this pace.

    Steen mentioned that if Ratchanok Intanon works on a solid training plan and schedules her tournaments accordingly (spreading them out so she isn't tired or injued) she could very well be one of the best, if not the best.

    Good praise for Intanon!

    Intanon makes some of the worse challenge calls.

    XD-> *Male* and female -> *ZSW* and HYQ -> *Male* player of the year -> *ZSW* :p
    Playing XD doesn't make you any less of a "male" and hence doesn't discard you from the competition imo
    But yeah, I don't fancy his chances against KM or minions for that matter

    Will Intanon break Koreans' streak tonight?

    Let's hope so.
