    Yes the commentator said that one side gave a walkover because of injury. The match was scheduled on TV court but now occupied by the WD.

    CHN now leads 10-8.

    Just came home for lunch and quick glance of the WD SF but will be away from the tv again. Saw the lobs and drops. KKK/TBH style.

    Japanese fortunes have abated and now became worse when they lost 4 matches an one XD WO! In the current WD JPN is trailing CHN 5-8, with G1 in favor of CHN 21-16. Chances are JPN will lose this match too leaving it's last remaining hope in another XD.

    Despite the domination of japanese players, we may not see any Japanese representative in the final..

    JPN is not giving up. A long rally of lobs, clears and drops finally stopped by JPN when Naito returned with a beautiful cross court drop.

    However CHN still commands an unassailable lead of 18-14.

    And the end has come. CHN WD beat the defending champs JPN 21-16; 21-15 and this almost dashed all hopes of JPN appearing in the finals.

    Han leads 10-9 with a nice net shot ann the advanced another point at the interval.

    Certainly Sung has greater international exposure than Han.

    Sung is now rattled by Han's good defense and nice net play to trail 13-19, even after winning two precious points.
