      FZD hit a net and an edge, but the Dragon saved the point!!

      Can I adjust my prediction to 4-1 to ML?

      Even though ML is up 3-0 I worry that a FZD comeback for a 7-game win is inevitable. FZD just never gives ML any breathing room (plus ML just barely won 2 of the first 3 games)

      It is quite likely. In the 3rd and 4th game ML barely used his FH attack. He's 32 and his chance of winning rapidly goes down after each game.

      ML is not as powerful, but he is near perfect at all levels.

      ML played the perfect match. Vintage ML or ML 2.0?

      Ok, looks like I was being a doomer
      I mean obviously it was a possibility, but ML closed it.
      Also, what an awesome player Ma Long is.
      What awesome players they both are.
      Glad ML didn't go title-less this season.

      Unbelievable final by ML and FZD. The final scorecard does not show how razor-thin close it was. Just can't get any higher quality or even match-up than this.

      Amazing final between ML and FZD. We are lucky to have witnessed such a high level of play from both players. As others have said, razor thin margin for a 4-1 match. FZD showed in WC final and in this final getting 5-7 points in a row against ML is very possible for him. As such, no lead is safe.

      Compared to WC final, ML was placing his BHs more diagonally which largely prevented FZD to switch his BH counter to ML's wide FH. ML's FH also had a bit more power.

      FZD doesn't seem to be as troubled by ML's variations. ML needs to play at his peak in order to beat FZD now as FZD now believes he can consistently beat ML.

      Will love to see these two in Men's Singles Olympics gold medal match if Tokyo Olympics happen.

      Well this is a bit of a mental blow for FZD.
      He barely beat ML by 2 points in a hard fought 7 game match and now he is beaten 4-1.

      Knowing that ML has the most experience in Olympic finals, I would bet my money on Ma Long now.
