    FINAL ORDER OF PLAY (12.00pm local time) => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...B43E80-2B5D-4B28-9B14-8133B6F6FDA4&d=20160925

    China young guns rule final day with four representatives, WS crown has been secured. Host Japan only represented by their best hopeful tomorrow, WD Olympic Champion. Both Denmark and Korea have two final slots while Malaysia once again relies to always dependable Lee Chong Wei.

    MD, Kim Gi Jung/Ko Sung Hyun (KOR) v Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen (CHN)
    H-2-H stats : 0-0 / WR : - v 14
    It's really rare chance to see men's doubles clash is arranged as opening match of five finals. Chinese future pair Li/Liu perform beyond expectation here to beat more fancied rival in two consecutive rounds, Boe/Mogensen and reigning World Champion Ahsan/Setiawan. The Chinese young sensation showed well improvement and maturity to handle the pressure against the elite pairs. Their last hurdle, Korean experimenting partnerships, Kim/Ko found difficulty to overcome local combination Kamura/Sonoda in semifinal. Korea needs to form new combination post Rio OG, at least three pairs have indicated to retire from international tournament, Lee/Yoo, Kim/Kim and Ko/Shin.

    WD, Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Christinna Pedersen/Kamilla Rytter Juhl (DEN)
    H-2-H : 8-4 / WR : 1 v 6
    A rematch of Rio Olympic Final, Matsutomo/Takahashi have bright prospect to retain their 2014 title considering their solid display and high confidence with the fully supported by home crowd. It seems age isn't big problem for Pedersen/Juhl, the veteran Dane have better tactic also mental strength as well to cope their younger opponents at previous rounds in marathon match. Losing narrowly 21-23, they came back stronger in next two games to eliminate Luo twin sisters. Facing current best women's doubles pair, it's an uphill task for them tomorrow to overcome the Olympic Champion after played 92 minutes in last four.

    MS, Lee Chong Wei (MAS) v Jan O Jorgensen (DEN)
    H-2-H : 16-1 / WR : 1 v 5
    King of Superseries, Lee Chong Wei with his sublime skill is strong favourite to add another crown, 6th Japan Open title based on the stunning head to head statistics unless Jorgensen will offer something extraordinary performance in finale. Last meeting at INA Premier Final, Lee were forced to work extra hard to tame former European Champion and no impossible it may happen tomorrow. Lee is undisputable to reach final here, he trounced Marc Zwiebler in two quick games at semifinal while Jorgensen were troubled by Son Wan Ho particularly in second game.

    WS, He Bingjiao (CHN) v Sun Yu (CHN)
    H-2-H : 1-3 / WR : 15 v 11
    Two Chinese young ladies capitalise the absence of some elite players, it's maiden Superseries final for the left-handed He Bingjiao. Her biggest test happened in quarterfinal when she defeated Ratchanok Intanon narrowly, on the other side 22 years old Sun Yu has comfortable way to reach third Superseries final in this season after Singapore Open and Australian Open. Sun had all home players in her path to last round, started from promising star Saena Kawakami, Chisato Hoshi, Sayaka Takahashi and 2013 Champion Akane Yamaguchi. China WS ends title draught since Li Xuerui topped podium in CHN Premier last November, they face tough challenge in last two years as rest of the world talents have been emerged.

    XD, Ko Sung Hyun/Kim Ha Na (KOR) v Zheng Siwei/Chen Qingchen (CHN)
    H-2-H : 0-1 / 1 v 35
    The newly-crowned world number one Ko/Kim passed previous rounds convincingly, all straight-sets victory including the semifinal hurdle to topple Rio silver medalist Chan/Goh, their final obstacles none but the rookies, Zheng/Chen who beat them early this year in THA Masters. The dangerous Chinese duo had rocky road to cruise into finale, they experienced scary escape in quarterfinal to win over Thai pair narrowly. Korean pair should be wary for the youngsters fast attacking style, Zheng and Chen look lethal combination so far and most likely will be permanent pair in future tournaments, playing 5 tournaments in 2016, 2 GP Gold titles and 2 runner up in CHN Masters & AUS Superseries, a really promising outcome.

    Jorgensen needs to work very hard, much like INA Open, to beat Chong Wei.

    The Danes are trouncing the Japanese, Misaki/Ayaka , in G3 and on the verge of avenging their Olympic defeat.

    Sweet revenge for the Danes on Japanese home soil but the Olympic gold is worth much more.

    JOJ relishes playing the Super Trio, it almost always brings out the best in him.

    JOJ playing a fast, attacking game...LCW looking relaxed and comfortably staying abreast of his opponent so far...

    I believe Li Junhui/Liu Yuchen, by winning this Superseries title beating the likes of Bo/Mo, Ahsan/setiawan and Ko/Kim, have finally come of age.

    JOJ's net is a bit loose and duly punished.

    Either LCW is playing more deceptively than usual or JOJ is anticipating incorrectly - either way, JOJ is being wrongfooted time and again this game...

    Yeah, but to stay at or among the top few, consistency is key, that's what I'd be waiting to see. At 21 years of age,still young, they have time on their side to mature and gain experience. Let's see.

    It's a bit crazy to see a 33 year old (who turns 34 soon) play with so much time against a strong, fast 28 year old in the top 5 of the world rankings...
