    SEMIFINAL ORDER OF PLAY (01.00pm, 2 courts) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...92274E-AED9-4660-8C1A-B8A44546EB89&d=20160604

    *MS Semifinals :
    - Tian Houwei (CHN) v Jan O Jorgensen (DEN)
    - Ihsan Maulana Mustofa (INA) v Lee Chong Wei (MAS)


    Ihsan Maulana Mustofa is the last hope for host Indonesia to book final berth but on paper it looks mission impossible for this young man to topple five-time winner and strong favourite Lee Chong Wei. Mustofa has quite favourable draw, none of seeded players on his path to semifinal including disposed the Englishman Rajiv Ouseph in last eight. The unstoppable Lee outclassed his opponent from first round and only needed 28 minutes to enter last four as Wang Zhengming retired at early of second game. After created a big headline on Thursday to stun top name Lin Dan, the rising star Jonatan Christie couldn't capitalise his winning momentum in second game and lost to former champion Jorgensen at the end. The pumped-up Danish number two will take on world number six Tian Houwei who fought hard to eliminate Hu Yun, Jorgensen is favoured to book another final in INA Premier after 2014 and 2015 edition. Maybe it's time for the left-handed Tian to prove his talent and capability as he always under the shadow of his two illustrious seniors, Lin Dan and Chen Long.

    *WS Semifinals :
    - Carolina Marin (ESP) v Wang Yihan (CHN)
    - Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Wang Shixian (CHN)


    It's a battle for two Wangs to nail Rio ticket, a fierce competition between them. Wang YH scored triumphant over Marin in their last meeting but she look so tired against Sung Ji Hyun in physically demanding clash that witnessed Wang amazing comeback at deciding game.Two-time World Champion Marin is definitely China major stumbling block for Rio gold, she's showing pretty convincing performance along this tournament so far, didn't drop any single game despite got trouble by Saina Nehwal in first game of her quarterfinal match. Wang SX always played rubber game en route to semifinal, her next rival is really complicated, the skillful Tai TY who's known with her deceptive shots. This TPE talent looked so sharp to overcome her nemesis Li XR and recent All England winner Okuhara in last sixteen and quarterfinal respectively.

    *MD Semifinal :
    - Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen (DEN)
    - Chai Biao/Hong Wei (CHN) v Mads Conrad Petersen/Mads Pieler Kolding (DEN)


    Thomas Cup victory really inspires two Danish combinations to produce excellent performance in this SS Premier tournament, both of them have knocked out elite combination at second round and march on to last four. Top-seeded Lee/Yoo have big chance to retain their 2014 title, the prominent Korean pair look in good shape as they won all their matches in straight-sets here and next will up against current SUI Open winner Astrup/Rasmussen. Another Denmark pair also secure semfiinal berth, Conrad/Kolding get tough Chinese opponent Chai B/Hong W who had beat them five times in six previous meetings.

    *WD Semifinal :
    - Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Eefje Muskens/Selena Piek (NED)
    - Tang Yuanting/Yu Yang (CHN) v Vivian Hoo Kah Mun/Woon Khe Wei (MAS)


    Two frontrunners will be challenged by the underdogs, the top-ranked Japanese pair Matsutomo/Takahashi on the verge of losing to save match point and force rubber games against Huang YQ/Tang JH at last eight. A thrilling match also involved Muskens/Piek to eliminate home pair Nuraidah/Pradipta, a breakthrough for this NED pair to reach their first ever semifinal in SS Premier tournament. The well improved Vivian Hoo/Woon KW exhibit mental toughness to trounce all three local pairs including world number two Maheswari/Polii at second round. Their semifinal rival is Chinese number one Tang YT/Yu Y, it's still fresh memory in Uber Cup group stage match when the Malaysian blew their big chance to shock Tang/Yu.

    *XD Semifinal :
    - Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Ko Sung Hyun/Kim Ha Na (KOR)
    - Xu Chen/Ma Jin (CHN) v Lu Kai/Huang Yaqiong (CHN)


    Ko SH/Kim HN are surrounded by three Chinese pairs, the reigning Olympic champion and former winner Zhang N/Zhao YL will be their semifinal hurdle. The new world number two Ko/Kim almost losing game 2 when Liu C/Bao YX slowly catched up them before the Koreans gained their focus back to finish the quarterfinal tie. The Olympic Champion is the favourite to step up into finale as the head to head statistics affirm their status. Title-holder Xu C/Ma J who battled hard to edge past the familiar foe, Fischer/Pedersen will take on former world top ten Lu K/Huang YQ, the latter look on fire started from the beginning of this tournament to shock one of home favourite Jordan/Susanto.

    LIVE TV (Court 1, 01.00pm) matches :

    1) Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Eefje Muskens/Selena Piek (NED)
    2) Carolina Marin (ESP) v Wang Yihan (CHN)
    3) Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Kim Astrup/Anders Skaarup Rasmussen (DEN)
    4) Tang Yuanting/Yu Yang (CHN) v Vivian Hoo Kah Mun/Woon Khe Wei (MAS)

    Agree with every of your prediction. Although the WS category is hard to predict.Carolina Marin seems certainly in good form, oozing confidence on court, seems like she's here to stay this time. But this match is so important to win for Wang Yihan. Should really be a good match. Also not sure the Dans can pull it off in MD, they are known to quite inconsistent..

    Yes, Wang Yihan although a fighter is prone to let the game slip away at some crucial points. I am actually most unsure about Zang Nan/Zhao Yunlei's prospects as ZYL has not been in good form lately.

    Wang Yihan and Wang Shixian are vying for one of the two OG spots and the pressure is getting into them. Let's see who will do better here.

    I love it even though almost everyone roots for Marin, but when Yihan wins a point, they cheer as well.

    WYH needs to compose herself, her body language is screaming high tension and stress.

    WYH can win if she stays cool,calm and collected. I remember how she tamed Marin the last time.
