Henry and Jeff, Greeting from Tennessee, USA. Thank you for sharing your thoughts/prediction on 2021 Tokyo badminton events. In women’s singles, I am wondering what strength/weakness of Taiwan’s Tai and of Chen of China that made you both picked Tai as eventual Gold medal winner. In addition, Chen is a younger and taller player, so I think Chen may have a shot to win on August 1. How many games would take Tai to clinch 2020 olympic title? I am a fan of badminton sport and have been watching Olympic games since the opening ceremony. Thank you.
