Athletes from the top group of the second stage of the Top-8 will find out which of them will be in the final, and who will have to fight for 3-4 place. How can these fights surprise us? ()
According to the draw, Vitaly Laletin - Evgeny Prudnik and Kydyrgali Ongarbaev - Levan Saginashvili are in the top grid. Considering the fact that there is still a third stage ahead, such a draw looks like one of the most successful options.
Today's favorites of the tournament - Levan and Vitali, if they are really the strongest, have a chance to meet in the final. And, obviously, it will be more interesting if one of them is only slightly inferior to another by force, and at the same time being headlong against other participants, would have lost in the semifinals and in the end would have taken only third place.
This is the second time that we are faced with the fact that Levan’s domination seems so large that his fight against Kydyrgali does not cause due excitement, and, as a result, interest. And this undoubtedly fits into the hands of the Kazakh athlete, because if he defeats, he will not lose his general position, as happened with Dmitry Trubin earlier. And his victory will cause a real sensation and make him a superstar. At the same time, for Levan, the situation is not of the best in the moral component, because the victory will not give him anything new, and the defeat will throw much back.
If a little fantasizing on the topic of possible rivals for Levan, it is obvious that for sports fame, it would be much more interesting to collect Evgeny or Vitali into the collection. We do not claim that Prudnik is stronger than Kydyrgali, it is quite possible that we still have to find it out, but it is clear that for the world community Prudnik still looks more titled.
