    Sameer beat Momota in straight game.
    Carefully crafted tactic from him to keep the shuttle unpredictable.

    very very nice crafty work by Sameer. Momota was beaten at net and deception today.

    It seems Jorgensen is the man to beat in this tournament. I won't be surprised if Sameer spring another good win.

    Verma played great - lots of creativity, deception and self-belief. He was sharp when it mattered. Momota led 16-14 in the first game - Verma scored 7 of the next 8 points. Momota led 15-11 in the second - Verma scored 10 (!) of the next 11 points. Clutch performance.

    Sure. But it will start at semifinal (today) as for Super 300 tournament.
    You need to check BadVidLiv channel to watch non official BWF streaming from now on.

    Not so sure... I think the underdog Thai might win it.

    Wangcharoen? He might have a chance but I don't think he is experienced enough to topple JOJ.

    SEMIFINALS (12.00pm) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...533AE1-4375-458C-BB11-E6B186C5EA21&d=20180224

    Kento Momota displayed sloppy performance and ended his journey in Basel yesterday. Sameer Verma looked composed, steady and troubled his Japanese opponents with disguising shots several times. Momota led comfortably in second game then Verma catched up to grab 5 consecutive points, from 11-15 to 16-15, that's the turning point to ruin Momota self confidence. The Indian will set up a meeting with Thailand newest star, Kantaphon Wangcharoen who downed Gurusaidutt in last eight. Title contender Jan O Jorgensen is favoured to book final spot against suprising semifinalist, Lucas Corvee. The Frenchman needed three games to overcome Japan rookie Koki Watanabe.

    Japan has abundant talent in women's department, 2 final berth have been secured. As expected, no major stumbling block for Sayaka Takahashi en route to semifinal and she's overwhelming favourite to enter finale and meet one of her compatriot, Minatsu Mitani or Natsuki Nidaira. In women's doubles two Japanese pairs facing each other, Sakuramoto/Takahata v Matsuyama/Shida and most likely will take on top-seed Stoeva Sisters tomorrow.

    East meets West for men's doubles final contest, both Boe/Mogensen and Ellis/Langridge involved in hard battle to pass their fellow countrymen at quarterfinal stage and the winner of this tie will meet Thailand combination, either Isriyanet/Namdash or Jongjit/Yordpaisong tomorrow. Thailand doubles department shows significant progress lately, 1996 Olympic Champion Rexy Mainaky is behind the scene figure to their rapid improvement. It's German v England in mixed doubles final match, Lamsfuss/Herttrich and Lane/Pugh are the favourites to standing on podium.

    Excited for the wd semi final, of course. Given the draw, this matchup was most expected and the winner should be favourite to win the title. Both pairs are wearing the national team jerseys now, and if they want to challenge the many top Japanese pairs, now is a good point to start. The announcer mentioned they've never met before, but the last two encounters locally were won by Matsuyama/Shida at the All Members tournament and the league, respectively.

    Sakura/Takahata definitely have the power advantage. A solid match.

    Plenty of errors from Sakura/Taka, also Matsu/Shida playing freely and more focused than G1.
