    CHN is experimenting with ZhangNan/Chen Qingchen instead of Zheng Siwei/Chen Qingchen in the opening match, a luxury they can afford with nothing to lose.

    Chinese TPE's MS Chou Tien Chen's match is pivotal to success (or survival) as the first two matches, MD and WS, seem to favour KOR, esp WS Sung Ji Hyun.

    Actually,on second thought, TPE's MD Lee/Lee has fighting chances against the KOR pair Kim G J/Yoo YS.

    Sung Ji Hyun in devastating form, 21-6, routing Chiang Mei Hui in G1.

    MD is still CHN's weakest link.

    What happened to Chou Tien Chen, lost G1, 19-21, and just gave up G2 when he thought it was a lost cause, 7-21, to Son Wan Ho ?

    Pretty much it's going to be CHN vs KOR in the final.

    Chou Tien Chen does not seem to have the self-belief anymore. Gives up matches every time he loses G1

    Really love this Japanese new XD pair. They really gave everything in that decider and held up their nerves. Entertaining pair to watch, although there is room for a lot of improvement

    Hats off to JPN. They beat Edi Subaktiar/Annisa Saufika which should not have lost in this tournament :(

    The 2nd stringers MS are exposed: Bayu and Kholik are still unstable and inexperienced :(

    Sorry, I don't understand you, why "nope" when I say MD is CHN's weakest link, just after dropping G1 ? Aren't you contradicting yourself ?

    The afternoon session of quarterfinal round yesterday saw Japan and Thailand worked extra hard to edge out Indonesia and India respectively, 3-2 while top-two seeds China and Korea prevailed with easier way later on, knocked out their rivals, 3-0.

    Japan got difficult times when trailed 0-2, Pratama/Suwardi took revenge over Dubai losing to Kamura/Sonoda, next Hanna Ramadhini played beyond expectation to stun Sayaka Sato in interesting duel, 21-18 / 23-21. It's too bad the next three remaining ties went to Japan, Kenta Nishimoto pose pivotal role to keep Japan chance alive, he did it well to cope pressure and beat M. Bayu Pangisthu. Matsutomo/Takahashi showed their class to make 2-2 for JPN. And last tie determined by Watanabe/Higashino who turned the tables and won the match despite Subaktiar/Saufika led comfortably at early stage of first game.

    A similar situation happened on IND-THA clash, at the brink of losing team Thailand regained the power through last two matches, WS and WD category which finished by three games. Savitree/Dechapol brought THA led earlier before Prannoy and Attri/Reddy grabbed next two ties, 2-1. Then Pornpwaee Chochuwong leveled the score, beat Rituparna Das. The thrilling atmosphere arrived on WD match as decider for both teams, Ponnappa/Reddy delivered glimmer of hope when took first game 21-15 but at the end Kititharakul/Prajongjai won the crucial tie and secured semifinal spot for Thailand.

    China-Malaysia duel was pretty straight-forward, the scratch pair Zhang N/Chen QC also Shi Yuqi outclassed their opponents, Goh SH/Shevon Lai and Lim Chi Wing respectively. Then Li JH/Liu YC had tough times before eliminated Goh SF/Izzudin, 19-21 / 22-20 / 21-10. At the adjacent court, the experimenting pair, Kim GJ/Yoo YS battled hard to deliver opening point for Korea then their leading singles players Sung Ji Hyun and Son Wan Ho sealed the victory. After lost to Prannoy couple of days ago, Son WH did it right this time to dispose Chou Tien Chen, 21-19 / 21-7.

    SEMIFINAL 1 (01.00pm) : CHN-JPN line-up => http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...50706AE1-774D-4E28-8E91-3150EB93200F&match=66

    The line-up isn't out yet, most likely Chen Qingchen will play twice. On paper prediction, Japan has better chance to gain point through Matsutomo/Takahashi and Kamura/Sonoda. Mixed doubles highly possibility will go to China also Men's singles as well. Women's Singles will be the key factor here, will we see He Bingjiao v Akane Yamaguchi today?

    That was close, how Zhang Nan/Chen Qingchen came from behind to win G1, 22-20.
