Quotes from the post match interview

“At the All England (this year) I was astonished by his attacking play, so I knew I had to play faster with him. My form is not where it was yet, my footwork is not yet stable. I’d like to keep building my form.”

Kento Momota (Japan)

“He has a very strong character. Maybe he’s not at his best, but he’s getting back. I couldn’t continue the momentum I had early on. In the second game I was far away from Momota. I had a very good opening and I couldn’t maintain the focus and momentum.”
