    No idea what happenned to Zhang Ning.

    Despite the misfortune, China is almost assured of the WS title with only Wang Chen standing in the way of 3 other Chinese.

    Semi match-up:

    Zhou Mi vs Wang Chen
    Xie XF vs Gong RN

    retired not WO

    Based on this REPORT (click if you read Chinese), it was retired, not WO. Zhang Ning injured herself during the match against Zhou Mi.

    not sure if the report is accurate

    It's a blessing for Zhou Mi actually.
    At least she could collect some "bonus" ranking points now. Otherwise, her campaign would have ended in last 8.:)

    Not really... actually we should treat it as all Chinese finals, since Hong Kong is now part of the mainland.:)
