    People whine that Adam is "unprofessional" all the time, until someone "professional" enters the booth and people immediately start whining that they are dull and boring. Also no one among the pro commentators is as up to date with the scene and the athletes as Adam.

    Adam is great for the sport. I was watching with a friend who doesn't understand table tennis at all and they were enjoying every second of it

    I think Adam is brilliant at what he does – much prefer him to anyone else atm. Brings good humour and fun to the match and is genuinely interested/understanding to the table tennis world

    Who else are you going find in any sport that spends as much time and energy getting to know the players, coaches, .... even the umpires? Nowadays, you have multimillion dollar sideline reporters in more popular sports that don't put in 1/10 the effort that he does. He lives and breathes table tennis. Adam is who he is... quirks and all. He's knowledgeable, engaging, and absolutely great for the sport.

    Anyone knows where to catch the archive of the semifinals?

    I watched it from NHK but the stream is so lagging that it ruins the experience for me.

    I missed 5 games from ML vs Dima and I am very curious how the match moves in that way

    On the men's side, I'm rooting for Ma Long to make history and to become the first double grand slam winner

    I get the belief and Sun is a special talent, but the lesson of Zhu Yuling, Liu Shiwen and the pandemic is that don't act too much like there is something other than the present.

    assuming you use VPN, here's ML - Dima in awesome quality (skip the first 30-40 minutes, match started late), requires German IP

    I don't recall hearing this before the Olympics, but I noticed that in this Olympics, LYJ sometimes does a pre-receive vocalization.... Something like 'chay' right before receiving serve. Maybe he no longer wants to be the 'silent' assassin. In any case, his receive is phenomenal.

    What's interesting is that there's always a chiquita guy on the tour, but they all seem to drift away from using it on every receive as they mature. FZD used to be one, but now favors touch play. I dunno why it happens but it does. Maybe as you get studied by the opponents, they find the serves you can't flick (or flick predictably, giving away counters); or maybe as you get better at pushing it becomes a better play percentage wise; or maybe it's just psychological and the OFF+ mentality of the young changes towards ALL+ with experience

    Indeed, epic match, especially from Lin with his incredible BH, but don't forget the match Gionis P. vs Jeoung Y. Two of the best matches in this Olympic Games.

    ML does look visibly past his prime. I'm predicting FZD 4-1 or 4-2 over ML.
    For sure, more 4-0 then 4-1. ML didn't play very well this OG.

    I haven't been able to watch the matches...by the comments it seems ML is not in his best form like he showed in Grand Finals last year.
    But he almost always gives a hard time to FZD, so there is still a chance. I hope ML can make history once again!

    The reason behind the change for FZD, from 7 years ago.

    I find the lack if public content appalling; there’s next to nothing out there. I wonder how this “milk it!” approach rhymes with the olympic spirit.

    Why do u guys think Ma long has dropped off so much since the last time him and fzd played (that i know of)? Surely he was already well past prime then, so what have u guys seen thus far that makes u think fzd's so far ahead of ML now?
