      I have watched several of his matches on youtube. This is the best and most consistent in the first 3 games of this match I have ever seen him play.

      I bet he is touring the beautiful Asunción as we speak. I suspect this was his plan all along for this weeknend!

      Some sources say, Koki was seen somewhere around La Costanera promenade, drinking cold-brewed yerba mate!

      I wish Kai to get to top 10, probably his bh would have to be improved to do so as @Zeio noted.
      So far I think @Loopadoop owns us a beer for this argument ...

      I didn't say Kai was a top ten player. I said he played like a top ten for that one match, which he did, since he won, beating WR #11

      Oh well every match is different - true and tt is not mathematics in a sense that say if player A beat player B and B beat C then A must beat C. Anyway ...

      But if I visit US one day, I can count on a beer right?

      Nice matchups in the semis actually.
      I haven't seen Hayata for a while and I wonder how she does against Adriana Diaz. Not expecting her to loose, but still might be an interesting match. I also wonder if Cifuentes will have strong enough bh to cause problems for Masataka?

      Gardos Robert will have strong opponent since Ishiy beat Gustavo in the first round and Balazova I think I've seen her, here and there in the draws recently so she might be probably in a good form, see how she does agains Honoka.

      Cifuentes is pretty good. More balanced than some Europeans. Awesome footwork, coming from a football country. Not a pushover.

      Morizono plays really good lately. I predict he is going to win this tournament.
      He is one of the most solid japanese players currently.

      So this was the tournament (below) I remembered her going far into the draw. She was quite active in 2019 and did pretty good in mixed doubles with Lubomir Pistej (the WC of Ping Pong), this years European Games. Top 50 (45) in the world actually, well she didn't have much to say against the quality chopper ...

      2019 - ITTF Challenge, Serbia Open, Belgrade (SRB)
      BALAZOVA Barbora - GARCIA Ana 64 4 1
      BALAZOVA Barbora - MAK Tze Wing (HKG) 32 4 0
      BALAZOVA Barbora - ZHANG Wenjing (HKG) 16 4 0
      BALAZOVA Barbora - BIKBAEVA Anna (RUS) 8 4 0
      BALAZOVA Barbora - SOO Wai Yam Minnie 4 0 4

      She put up a good fight against Hashimoto. Even Harimoto had trouble looping past her.

      Thanks, nice footage @Zeio. If she can defend Harimoto's topspins so well no wonder Balazova had problems.

      I was surprised Ishiy was so easy for Gardos. He actually won 2019 Pan American Championships with Jha Kanak in line.

      ps. Sorry I overslept Hayata and Morizono ... ech ... ; )

      I was surprised as well. Was expecting Ishiy to try like Cifuentes despite the gap.
