    Togami made good progess and I would have preferred him over Niwa for sure. COVID made it hard for these young players because almost all world tour tournaments were cancelled last and this year.

    I don't see how they can win against Korea, they have to rely on two Harimoto wins once again which isn't guaranteed as we could see today. If he wins two singles hoping for Mizutani is their best.

    they both stalled i think. They were quite promising but haven’t improved further. They couldn’t even stand out in domestic competitions, so i think there is no reason for japan to pick them for olympics.

    Togami looks a better prospect, good technique and physicality. I really think if japan picked him instead of Niwa, they would have better chance to win Germany. But it could also backfire because he is young and doesn’t have much experience. Niwa is a safer choice. I’m hoping Togami would take Mizutani place in jnt after this, he is much more talented than Uda imo.

    Yes, I was being unnecessarily harsh on him, he knows way more than I ever will about what team to use when. Also, do you mean Falck/Karlsson as opposed to Falck/Persson. Jon is a good doubles guy, but not at the Olympic level. Today's win for Germany over Japan and also Taipei really shows how much of a difference having 2 elite players vs 1-1.5 (Taipei, Japan) or 0.5-1 (Falck when he's in the zone or Källberg at times).

    I don't see it either. That said, with the home crowd, it is always possible for someone to outperform. That said, Japan is going to lose the doubles again for sure and then if Harimoto manages to beat Jang Woojin(who I am fairly sure none of the other Japanese players can beat) and Jeoung Youngsik, it is up to Mizutani or Niwa to find another win against Lee Sang Su.

    Yes, I mistyped - I definitely meant Falck/Karlsson and my brain read Falck/Karlsson so I was likely possessed while typing and may require an exorcism at some point...

    Boll has often said that Germany could contend for medals after Dima came of age - before that, it was really tough when he had to carry the team by himself. So yes, it is night and day having two elite players vs one and even 3 like China vs 2 for most of the other top countries. What is now also important is having an elite doubles team (or even multiple elite doubles teams).

    Togami has shown he can play doubles with various teammates, driving FZD/XX to the brink in the SF of ATTC 2019. The thing with Uda right now is that he plays exactly like a South Korean player, placing too much reliance on form. He either upsets or gets upset, making him wildly unpredictable, but could be a great asset under the right conditions. OTOH, Togami has way more balance between FH and BH, making him much more consistent, that could be a great balancer for the team event between 2 extremes as Harimoto and Uda.

    His backhand was on fire in the European Championships. Oddly, Ovtcharov didn't seem near his best in that tournament and is on fire now.

    Yeah. Reminded me in some ways of her win over Ding Ning.

    Now the challenge for Hong Kong is that to win, Minnie Soo needs to beat Xiona Shah and before that Hoo Doi Kem needs to beat Petrissa (which I think is possible). Because Lee Ho Ching is hopeless vs chop and will lose to Han Ying in a decider.

    Solja continues her terrible run this Olympics. I think her entire record is 1W 6L in the team event?

    Minnie Soo Wai Nam is the heroine of this bronze medal! Like Yu Mengyu, somewhat unheralded player and had to play two difficult styles. Congrats HKG and Minnie Soo Wai Nam. Fantastic!

    Apparently, LSW elbow not too "injured" to prevent her from clapping in the stands.

    Yes unfortunately...
    Didn't change Ishikawa to Hina Hayata ...
    (although there is absolutely nothing to lose ... Silver is guaranteed for any result ...)
