    The semifinal round will be separated by two sessions (10.30am & 05.30pm).

    All badminton fans certainly will looking forward to much anticipated Lee Chong Wei-Lin Dan final showdown. As predicted Lee outplayed Jeon Hyeok Jin in two straight games and highly favoured to pass Vincent Wong Wing Ki as well today. The Hong Kong player got free semifinal ticket as Chen Long withdrew due to wrist injury. China megastar Lin was stretched into three games by Indonesia young talent Jonatan Christie. Lin outmaneuver Christie at the end as 19 years old stamina dropped drastically in decider, a homework for PBSI how to increase fitness level. Son Wan Ho ended Ajay Jayaram excellent run here and will set up a meeting with Lin at first session match, the Chinese finished quarterfinal tie last night on 11.00pm local time.

    Two women's singles semifinal matches are awarded to be played on TV court this evening. Tai Tzu Ying almost blew her chance yesterday as the fighter Chen Yufei showed steel determination to counter attack her high calibre rival, a marathon match displayed by scoreline, 21-17 / 20-22 / 24-22. Sung Ji Hyun powered past the below-par Sun Yu, 21-11 / 21-15 and will face Tai once again after All England semifinal last month. In one intriguing quarterfinal tie, fully motivated Carolina Marin took her revenge over Ratchanok Intanon, the Spaniard moved faster to play aggressively as Intanon was struggling to balance speed and power
    despite former world number forced rubber games. Marin will face tough foe today, Nozomi Okuhara who won over Akane Yamaguchi in all Japanese affairs.

    New sensationals MD pair Gideon/Sukamuljo overcame familiar rival, Li JH/Liu YC. The tall Chinese surprised All England champion in first game 21-7 but too bad they couldn't keep momentum as the Indonesians regained their confidence to outwit Li/Liu and will meet another complicated task, second seed Kamura/Sonoda. The winner of this tie will meet Chinese combination, either Chai/Hong or Fu HF/Zheng SW.

    Two Japanese WD overcame their Chinese rivals yesterday, the Olympic Champion Matsutomo/Takahashi involved in gruelling match to down Huang DP/Li YH while their teammates Fukushima/Hirota knocked out Dubai Finals winner Chen/Jia. On bottom half draw, Huang YQ/Tang JH will challenge All England winner Chang YN/Lee SH.

    Reigning champion Ahmad/Natsir are surrounded by three Chinese pairs. Liliyana Natsir is still hampered by knee injury, she moved slowly last night against Choi SG/Chae YJ, the Olympic Champion vast experience helped them to progress in 82 minutes clash, 16-21 / 22-20 / 23-21. It's gonna be tough job today for Ahmad/Natsir to face the in-form Lu K/Huang YQ. On the opposite draw, Zheng SW/Chen QC will see Zhang N/Li YH.

    You're late. The XD is already over. Much less exciting to watch than this WD as a matter of fact

    Matsutomo made too many errors and needs to stop doing high serve.

    Her serve is abysmal. Both the low and the high serve.. Every time she serves they lose a point basically. She used to have a good serve but now sure what happened.

    Until she fixes that it will be hard to win close matches like this

    Congrat to fukushima and hirota though; they have been rock solid in these past two matches against the very highest pair of WD. They have a bright future ahead of them. Let's see if they can capitalize tomorrow

    I don't see the indos winning against this XD chinese pair, seeing the physical condition of Liliana.. Surprised she even decided to go through this tournament.

    Ahmad will have to be at 300% if they want to have a chance

    With the Sudirman Cup round the corner, Lin Dan is not going to take any risk, I supposed.
