    Venue
    : Istora Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Jakarta-INA

    Total prize-money : US$750,000

    Tournament website : http://www.djarumbadminton.com/en/indonesia-open/

    SEMIFINALS order of play (01.00pm, 2 courts) : https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...E-6DD1B6F7C5FF

    Jakarta time : http://www.worldtimezone.com/time/wt...ma=Find%20Time

    MS, it's going to the script
    All top 4 seeds manage last four spot, will we see top two seed in finale? Lee CW is on course to book another final but don't think the below par performance of Chen L could handle Jorgensen this time

    WS, 2013 WC final may repeat here
    The top two Chinese players will get challenge from Thai girls, looking forward to another rematch of The Olympic Champion v The World Champion.

    MD, two KOR threats
    Home fave Ahsan/Setiawan will take on the explosive Kim/Kim and other match another title contender Lee YD/Yoo YS will be tested by CHN Olympic combo Fu HF/Zhang N

    WD, it's CHN v KOR
    I guess KOR WD doesn't want to repeat JPN Open faillure happens again here when their two pairs stopped at semifinal

    XD, tough call for local hope
    Xu/Ma v Ahmad/Natsir, last year WC final rematch. It's too hard to predict who will cruise to final while the other tie looks like Danish star Fischer/Pedersen has slight advantage against surprising semifinalist Lee YD/Shin SC

    My wish for the Final:-
    MS: LCW vs CL
    WS: Jindapon vs Inthanon (unlikely, because of LXR & WSX form. But this is my WISH)
    MD: A/H vs LYD/YYS
    WD: China vs Korea (don't know which pair will be in Final)
    XD: A/N vs JF/CP

    WSX has a 6-1 head-to-head win against RI. Last win by RI was back in 2011. All 7 games were done in 2 sets. Tough for RI.
    IMO, I think after RI wins in WC'13, she tried to change her play style by smashing alot more. Hopefully she is more settled now and able to mix her new 'smash' with her trickery deceptive skills.
    Go, May.
    Among the 'new' young talents, you and Akane, I am looking out for.
    (And, Busanan too)
    (And, TTY, oh what can I say . . . too erratic & inconsistent results, but very natural and talented)

    Badminton fans are in for a treat.
    All 8 matches on tv court are interesting.
    Got to plan.
    If breaks for dinner and gardening is required, match no 5 and 7 are the ones.

    Hopefully it won't be players from the same country playing each other in tomorrow's final for MD, WS and WD.

    My picks for the finals day (which means, who wins today ;) )

    Tago v/s Jan O (yes, it can happen!)
    May v/s Nat (yes, it can happen)
    ZN/FHF v/s SanDra (yes, it can happen -if ZN doesn't get any more hissy fits)
    MJ/TYT v/s JKE/KHN (because madbad would otherwise eat me alive)
    Mrinalini v/s Scorpion1 (match abandoned due to incessant rain)

    At the rate she's hollering, GC will need some cough lozenges soon.

    A lot of good matches today.

    Hope LYD/YYS vs Zhang/Fu will be tight.

    WSX looking very grumpy and sleepy as she tosses mementos into the crowd.
    May had better not wake her up, or there'll be trouble

    Agree with cobalt, WSX look very grumpy today but also very serious.

    I'm more interested in the MD match. LYD/YYS VS ZHANG/FU

    WSX starts the ball rolling with a smash, very unusual.
