XD, Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir (INA) H-2-H : 12-5 / WR : 1 v 2 The top-seeded is back to right track, they look sharp along this event including how they knocked out the much-improved Korean pair Ko SH/Kim HN in semifinal despite experienced hard times at first game. The resurgent Ahmad/Natsir ended their title drought in MAS Premier three weeks ago, a very important title to boost their confidence after series of dismal performances last year. Zhang/Zhao are favoured to top podium tomorrow, the last time they lost to the Indonesians was 2014 All England final. However, the meeting between these current top two pairs always be close contest as both finalists are really familiar each other. MS, Chen Long (CHN) v Lee Chong Wei (MAS) H-2-H : 12-12 / WR : 1 v 2 Lee Chong Wei once again created a heartbreak for home fans and denied all China final in men's singles category. The Lin-Lee gigantic clash displayed their master class quality in first and second game but too bad ended dramatically at deciding game as Lin stamina was drained a lot while Lee stamped authority with his signature attacking style, the shocking scoreline 21-4 for Lee victory. Lin Dan slipped his chance to seal first set when he led 20-17 but good fighting spirit by Lee Chong Wei here to grabbed 5 consecutive point. The full-confidenced Lee will meet another archrival in final, two-time World Champion Chen Long. Chen eliminated his compatriot Tian Houwei, quite straight-forward tie despite he came from behind at second game to seal the match. The Malaysian hero has advantage to retain his 2006 Asian Championships title considering his supremacy in last three encounters including convincing straight-sets triumphant in MAS Premier Final. A huge pressure on Chen Long, it's like dejavu of CHN Premier finale last November. WS, Li Xuerui (CHN) v Wang Yihan (CHN) H-2-H : 8-9 / WR : 3 v 6 A final rematch of last two multi-sports events, 2012 London Oympic Games and 2014 Incheon Asian Games when Li won gold in London and Wang snatched Incheon top honour, both of them may represent China in Rio summer games upcoming August. The Olympic Champion Li passed all hard tests en route to the final, started from Porntip Buranaprasertsuk, Akane Yamaguchi, Tai Tzu Ying and Sung Ji Hyun in last four while the Asian Games winner Wang Yihan showed strong determination and mental strength to overcome the in-form Nozomi Okuhara and Saina Nehwal. China WS is struggling to carve stellar performance since last year when new blossoming talents have emerged and rock their domination. In BAC this year, they prove to be the best in Asia and secure WS crown. WD, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Naoko Fukuman/Kurumi Yonao (JPN) H-2-H : 4-1 / WR : 1 v 9 The Japanese pairs really set serious threat for China in Rio, women's doubles category present tremendous shift lately as China long-domination seems halted at the moment. For BAC statistics, the last time non China pair who won gold in this event was former All England Champion Lee Hyo Jung/Lee Kyung Won in 2005 edition. Current formidable duo Matsutomo/Takahashi are hot favourite to bag third title in this new season after All England and India Superseries, their final opponent Fukuman/Yonao played the longest duration and very tiring match that booked record 2 hour and 41 minutes against Maheswari/Polii as the final score ended 24-22. MD, Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen (CHN) H-2-H : 0-1 / WR : 1 v 14 The scenario tells Lee/Yoo will extend their title here but the world number one must be wary for their tricky opponent in last round as they lost in first meeting last year in China Open second round. The giant-killer Li/Liu are surprising finalist here as they stunned title contender of this event, Ahsan/Setiawan and edged past the senior Fu HF/Zhang N in semifinal. Former world junior champion has true potential to become China future pair to replace the inconsistent Chai B/Hong W and Liu XL/Qiu ZH, no wonder they're included as part of Thomas Cup member in Kunshan.
