the MAL uncles pair disproves it tho
The TPE pair is within inches now...17-14.
score 18-14 for taipei, 2nd set
taipei take the match by 21-16 21-15.
As expected, Wifqi/Afiat lost to the more experienced Chen Hung-Ling/Lin Yu-Lang 16-21, 15-21. It's gonna be an interesting Final tomorrow.
So, it's an all-TPE Final as expected in WD and XD, all-MAS Final in the MS, and HKG to clinch the WS Final.
The only interesting match should be the MD FINAL between Fernando Kurniawan/Lingga Lie and Chen Hung-Ling/Lin Yu-Lang.
Renuga Veeran [AUS]
Kate Wilson-Smith [AUS]
[TPE] Yu Chin Chien 
[TPE] Chia Chi Chou
by 21-12 23-21
All top seeds advanced to the finals.
I was expecting Hsieh to win over Sairul and Veeran over Hindley but both were disappointing.
Anyway, MAS at least guarantees one title on MS and has a shot on WD too.
Hsieh Yu Hsin, OG quarter-finalist?
i thought he is not bad...
or Sairul also fast n furious?
But too much experience counts against you.
Oh dear.. the uncles vs Kurniawan/Lingga.. I was line-judging, and Ong Beng Teong kept on entertaining the crowd.. he's a comedian. I couldn't concentrate, and I was a bit slow on my line-judging!
OBT apparently dragged the shuttle on the strings ( maybe double-touch ), and did a cross-court net-drop.. I still had to call it "in". The umpire didn't see that, so the malaysian pair scored a point from that.. then the Indo pair complained to the umpire saying that OBT dragged the shuttle. OBT replies with a funny expression, and both teams start laughing.. OBT pointed at me, saying that I called that "in". It ended up as a let.. lol
Sadly I couldn't film it...
Jessica Jonggowisastro vs Zhou Mi, another funny match..
After the 11-point interval, Jessica J prepared for Zhou Mi's serve with a loud shout; "Come on!!!!".. Zhou Mi points at the shuttle which was outside the court.. but Jessica J continued shouting 'come on!!' etc.. .. funny and a little bit embarassing, but very entertaining!! and again.. I lost my concentration.
Dude, WD is MAS v TPE. At least it's interesting for me. I don't know who to PAW, frankly.
..i wonder how your facial expression must be like when he asked you to confirm it...Either you were still chuckling or with a surprise yet serious look...
I was giggling but I tried to stop myself.. ... But I couldn't. So I was told that I do not have to do line-judging tomorrow at the finals, phew.. I won't be known on youtube as the 'giggling line-judge'..
I forgot to mention that Ong Beng Teong was being a comedian again..
They lost the first set to Lingga and Kurniawan so in the 2minute break-time, Sairul Ayob and Zhou Mi went up to them to try to talk to them but OBT shooed them away and the uncle-pair was completely ignoring the advices of the younger players.. they walked away laughing
LOL, thanks Jhirata, for sharing. Ong BT seems to be having a swell time just playing. The uncles are coaches, LOL, not surprising they ignored the advice of their students, perhaps in jest. Didnt know Zhou Mi trained under CSK /OBT, she joined in at court side for the fun?
