    FINAL
    (12.00pm) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...92274E-AED9-4660-8C1A-B8A44546EB89&d=20160605

    WD, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Tang Yuanting/Yu Yang (CHN)
    Head-to-head stats : 2-2 / WR : 1 v 3
    Both finalists had relatively easy semifinal clash, the world number one Matsutomo/Takahashi outclassed NED combination Muskens/Piek despite the Netherlands combination delivered some troubles in second game but it was not enough to thwart reigning All England champion to clinch the match in straight-sets while Tang/Yu displayed fast attacking and tactical style to outwit and frustrate Vivian Hoo/Woon KW who couldn't do too much except produced a series of errors. An ideal final tomorrow and equal chance for both pair to top podium as they had face off four times with three meetings happened in final, CHN Premier, MAS Masters and All England.

    XD, Ko Sung Hyun/Kim Ha Na (KOR) v Xu Chen/Ma Jin (CHN)
    H-2-H : 4-1 / WR : 2 v 6
    The Korean duo is highly favoured to nail the title, they had beaten two Chinese pair en route to the final, Liu/Bao and the reigning Olympic and World Champion Zhang/Zhao in convincing way. Ko/Kim have transformed to be world-beater and their world ranking soars to number two this week. Defending champion Xu/Ma must think hard how to overcome their final hurdle as the Koreans outmaneuvered them in SIN Superseries recently. The London Olympic silver medalist had tough battle to oust Fischer/Pedersen in last eight and advanced smoothly to beat their younger teammates Lu K/Huang YQ at semifinal.

    MS, Jan O Jorgensen (DEN) v Lee Chong Wei (MAS)
    H-2-H : 1-15 / WR : 5 v 2
    Lee Chong Wei will dethrone Chen Long as world number one soon, the most successful and consistent player in Superseries circuit is overwhelming favourite to claim sixth Indonesia Open title. Lee showed his master-class display to dictate home young hopeful Ihsan Maulana Mustofa despite the Indonesian gave stiff resistance in second game but the two-time Olympic silver medalist still could cope the pressure to finish the match. INA Premier seems lucky ground for Jan O Jorgensen, he enters final three times in a row after won 2014 title and last year lost to Kento Momota. Former European champion downed Tian HW in a gruelling 69 minutes battle. A heavyweight task to repeat his 2014 successful and will deny the in-form Lee CW to pocket big prize money tomorrow.

    MD, Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Chai Biao/Hong Wei (CHN)
    H-2-H : 7-1 / WR :1 v 6
    The world number one has bright prospect to retain their 2014 title, the first Superseries crown in 2016 after being semifinalist in All England, MAS Premier and SIN Open. Lee/Yoo have pretty good result in this season to bag China Masters title and Asian Champion last April, a positive sign to hunt Rio Gold. In semifinal, they eliminated the improved Danish back-up pair Astrup/Rasmussen and will up against Chai/Hong for final test. The inconsistent Chinese pair dropped first game then overpowered recent European Champion in next two games. Lee/Yoo beat the Chinese duo regularly in their previous meetings but the last one was very high intense and close tie that ended with scoreline 30-28 in Hong Kong Superseries end of last year.

    WS, Wang Yihan (CHN) v Tai Tzu Ying (TPE)
    H-2-H : 3-4 / WR : 3 v 9
    Wang Yihan proves once again her strong determination and self-belief to dispose two-time World Champion Carolina Marin in semifinal. Her performance is developing on right track and right time to clinch Rio ticket and she looks back to her fine form. The reigning Asian Champion will take on Chinese Taipei tricky player Tai Tzu Ying who's definitely playing her best badminton along this tournament, she outplayed former world number one Wang Shixian and have beaten another two shuttlers earlier, Li Xuerui and Nozomi Okuhara. It's rarely to see WS tie will be played as last match of five finals, this should be a close contest.

    Thanks, CLELY.

    It is indeed rare to have WS as the last match.

    The last WS match is the most unpredictable one. What a thriller!

    Great finals line-up! All matches are potentially exciting and even though there are clear favourites, it wouldn't be that surprising if it went the other way.

    By the way, really wonder how Lin Dan feels that he can't seem to win the Malaysian or Indonesian titles, despite so many attempts. Many people seem to cite lack of motivation, but I would have thought never winning these titles before and being close to the end of his career would be ample motivation! Furthermore, in recent years, these tournaments are basically the biggest tournaments aside from the majors - and in fact, objectively, in terms of difficulty level to win, they are arguably the hardest.

    I really wonder if it's the weather/climate in Malaysia/Indonesia that weakens Lin Dan physically and/or mentally? It's really an interesting phenomenon. Chen Long managed to win the Malaysian title previously, albeit in the absence of Lee Chong Wei. If I remember correctly, he beat Lin Dan in the final! I remember Lin Dan promising to return the year after and win the title - but he failed again this year to JOJ!

    Also, it would be shocking if WSX was selected for Rio. No matter what happens from now, LXR and WYH must be locked for Rio. WSX hasn't been even close to winning a title for 2 years (aside from this year's All England?).

    By the way, surprised to see that TTY leads WYH in their H2H:
    http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/r...-41A2-BC3E-CB57133E64CC&t1p1=53938&t2p1=61427

    Can WYH square it today? Or will TTY pull further away and claim her biggest title yet?

    Another interesting statistic is that LCW currently has 63 career titles, while LD has 62. They both have been neck and neck for the last few years. Not that it matters greatly, but if LCW can bag another title today, he would have a good chance to be ahead of LD in terms of total number of titles won by the end of their careers. That's assuming LCW and LD both retire within the next year of course.

    Ultimately though, history will remember that LD has 10+ majors, while LCW has 0 majors!

    History? I'm pretty sure a whole lot of badminton fans in this generation fondly remember how great LCW is. But in the future, nobody really understands how great the former players are other than looking at the record book, which does not tell a lot. It's hard to measure one's achievement with World Championships medals or Olympic Medals; Nobody really ranks players like that after 2007. You certainly would not rank Ko Sung Hyun/Shin Baek Cheol higher than Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeong Seong. For all intended purposes, SSP and SS are "majors" in reality with the compulsory participation from top players. Fortunately for future generations, the recorded videos of SS and SSP will be there to watch; whether the future audience actually bother to watch the old matches other than the recent matches are intriguing to find out.

    Totally agreed with what you say. Thank you so much for your clarification and explanation.



    Yes we certainly cannot say that Ko Sung Hyun / Shin Baek Cheol is better than Lee Yong Dae / Yoo Yeon Seong just because they have won the world championship before but not LYD / YYS. But then the SS and SSP title that Lee Yong Dae / Yoo Yeon Seong certainly surpass Ko Sung Hyun / Shin Baek Cheol. Definitely also in terms of performance Lee Yong Dae / Yoo Yeon Seong is so much better.




    This certainly also apply to Lee Chong Wei case.

    Thanks Master - appears to be 1080p resolution too for that stream. Will see which one looks better soon I guess - BWF or this one.

    I'll believe it when I see it. If you've been following her career closely, you'll have to admit that she's the "Queen of Chokers". Wouldn't be surprised if she chokes again.

    Both TTY and IR have similar styles, hard smashing at every opportunity and lots of deception at the net and front court area.

    Now that WYH has a leg up on WSX, I believe she'll want to increase her chances of going to Rio with a title win. Physically she may be a bit spent with some tough grueling and long matches in previous rounds but let this be a test of her perseverance and endurance, still take the necessary precaution and don't overstretch and risk injury just before the Olympics. We should be in for a treat.

    You obviously missed Steen Pedersen's commentary - and I respect him for his objectivity, impartiality, balance, fairness and realistic views and opinions, generally - when he said Lin Dan couldn't care less about winning the INA PSS, or MAS PSS for that matter, esp so in the Olympic year because he has won everything there is that matters at least twice over.

    I think the CHN coaches will be watching to see how TYT/YY deals with this JPN threat.

    The JPN pair defends smashes very well, if they are able to neutralize TYT's power smashes, the advantage is theirs.

    Yu Yang at the back is less threatening.
