    PRIZE-MONEY :

    *MD, WD, XD Champion => US$59,250 / Runner-up : US$28,500

    Both China and Indonesia have guaranteed 1 title each through mixed doubles and men's doubles respectively, a new Superseries champion will emerge tomorrow in men's singles category, either Jeon Hyeok Jin or Hans Kristian Vittinghus.

    WD, Bao Yixin/Chen Qingchen (CHN) v Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Greysia Polii (INA)
    Head to head stats : 0-0 / WR : - v 4
    The Indonesians have bright prospect to clinch their second Superseries title in this year after SIN Open last April. Maheswari/Polii performed well to block their familiar foe. It's hard for Tang/Yu to crack INA pair solid defense as many rallies happened in semifinal duel. Tang Yuanting couldn't cover well the fatigue Yu Yang despite led 16-11 at second game before INA combination bounced back. Chinese new sensation Bao YX/Chen QC didn't waste their free semifinal ticket as they disposed resilient Japanese pair, Fukuman/Yonao in gruelling 84 minutes match. Chen Qingchen, China next big thing surely will be the player to watch for upcoming years as she made it into two finals here in her tender age.

    MD, Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Suwardi (INA) v Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (INA)
    H-2-H : 0-1 / WR : 14 v 13
    A rematch of recent IND Superseries final when the younger Indonesian pair bagged their maiden Superseries title. These two pairs certainly will be INA backbone after their number one Ahsan/Setiawan retired. Pratama/Suwardi who swallowed big disappointment to miss Rio ticket eliminated the former partner Angriawan/Saputro comfortably while the faster and more compact Gideon/Sukamuljo outplayed the unranked Chinese pair, Liu C/Zheng SW in two quick games. Indonesia also Korea as well are traditionally strong in this category to produce remarkable men's doubles pair.

    MS, Jeon Hyeok Jin (KOR) v Hans Kristian Vittinghus (DEN)
    H-2-H : 0-0 / WR : 26 v 12
    Interesting final clash between the upcoming against the vast experienced. The inspiring Vittinghus cruised into Dubai SS Finals 2014 and lost to Chen Long at that time, this is a second chance and maybe the right time for him to grab maiden Superseries crown as he's favoured to overcome Korean rookie. Danish number three who getting good development lately eliminated Srikanth Kidambi in close first game then easier next game with his accuracy placement. Jeon Hyeok Jin played marathon match against the giant-killer Anthony Ginting, the Indonesian slipped his big opportunity to lose 19-21 at deciding game despite he fought hard to catch up from 11-17 down. China has stunning flop in this department as no one of their player could reach the semifinal here including top-seed Chen Long.

    XD, Zheng Siwei/Chen Qingchen (CHN) v Lu Kai/Huang Yaqiong (CHN)
    H-2-H : 1-0 / WR : 53 v 10
    The reigning World Junior Champion continues to awe badminton fans with their speed and power style, two elite pairs have become their victim en route to the final, recent Dubai SS Finals champion Chris/Gabby Adcock and All England winner Jordan/Susanto. A high possibility to be close contest tomorrow as their previous meeting displayed. Current IND Superseries champion, Lu/Huang tend to show consistency after managed semifinal outing last week in INA Premier, lost to the eventual winner Xu C/Ma J. The world number ten outmaneuvered the well-improved Malaysian duo Chan PS/Goh LY at last four with hard smashes and fast blocking at front area.

    WS, Sun Yu (CHN) v Saina Nehwal (IND)
    H-2-H : 1-5 / WR : 12 v 8
    Once again women's single match is arranged as last tie of five finals in Superseries tournament after INA Open last week. On paper scenario, it's tall order for 2015 SIN Superseries winner Sun Yu, she should against the odds to claim top podium as the limping head to head favours to the Indian jewel. Former champion, Saina Nehwal exhibited extraordinary performance to demolish her nemesis Wang Yihan, the lanky Chinese simply had no answer to Nehwal who applied different tactic and game plan this time, she was so sharp to unleash smash in steep and accurate angle. On the other side, Sun Yu is playing her best badminton along this week, after Okuhara and Yamaguchi, she edged past her illustrious senior, the reigning Olympic Champion Li Xuerui to pocket her second final berth in this season after being runner-up in Singapore last April.

    It'll be easier to be in SY's shoes, she's the underdog who has emerged as giant killer and came a long way (way beyond what was expected). She'll go all out with the momentum to back her up. OTOH SN is 100% determined to win a title before the mega event! She showed she can go to "any extent" in "any rally" to win the point against RI (QF) and then she showed she is really fit with new tactics to add colours to her flight against WYH!
    If everything goes as expected it should be a great climax for the Xiamenair Aus Open with SN finishing her title draught!

    Angga/Ricky and Kevin/Marcus already known each other play style in and out from practicing together in daily basis. A good chance for Angga/Ricky to revenge India Open loss but Kevin/Marcus has been amazing lately.

    @lee00


    Now in the middle of my Sunday Service at the church. Just hope that my Sunday Service will end earlier today so I can watch the MS match live for Jeon Hyeok Jin. This is his first individual tournament for year 2016 so really don't want to miss his MS match.

    I guess this Australian lady umpire is a descendant of some Englishman/-woman, just like in the All England the umpire is impatient, ever in rush... quickly quickly... similar to the third worlder public bus driver chasing for passengers on road, to max the turnover... :) lol
