    Venue
    : The Hamdan Sports Complex, Dubai-UAE

    Total prize-money : US$1,000,000

    Tournament website : http://www.destinationdubai.ae/

    Dubai time : http://www.worldtimezone.com/time/wt...ma=Find%20Time

    Order of Play (01.00pm local time, 2 courts) : http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...FA59B0-E42A-4A3D-AD04-71202212EF81&d=20141220

    LIVE TV matches :
    - Saina Nehwal (IND) v Tai Tzu Ying (TPE)
    - Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Chris Adcock/Gabrielle Adcock (ENG)
    - Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Luo Ying/Luo Yu (CHN)
    - Sung Ji Hyun (KOR) v Akane Yamaguchi (JPN)
    - Chen Long (CHN) v Srikanth Kidambi (IND)
    - Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) v Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen (DEN)

    A good run by the underdog Vittinghus in Dubai as surprisingly he secured semi slot to beat Tago yesterday. Srikanth will challenge top contender Chen Long, this gonna be interesting duel today, this much improved Indian player had stretched World Champion into extra games at HKG last month.

    Two clashes between Nehwal v Tai and Sung JH v Yamaguchi will be hard to predict, all of them have equal chance to prevail. JPN prodigy Yamaguchi proves she's the next big thing who will be watched out in coming years. None CHN WS in final four, WS discipline is more and more competitive as others have catched up to break CHN superiority

    Early encounter of Lee YD/Yoo YS v Danish combo as the Korean fave fails to top Group A, will the on-fire Chinese duo Chai/Hong redeem their painful defeat in Thomas Cup semifinal over Endo/Hayakawa?

    The rising CHN pair, Luo Twins will be tested by JPN #1 Matsutomo/Takahashi and recent World Champion Tian/Zhao is frontrunner to seal final ticket against Jung KE/Kim HN

    Zhang N/Zhao YL meets English couple once again at knock-out stage along with Liu C/Bao YX v Fischer/Pedersen. Let's see whether the outcome will be repeated or reversed. Top-seed ZZ is strong fave to book final ticket.

    Recap of group-stage final standings :

    Group A, winner : Chen Long (CHN), runner-up : Hans Kristian Vittinghus (DEN)

    CHN - 6
    DEN - 4
    JPN - 3
    KOR - 3
    IND - 2
    TPE - 1
    ENG - 1

    probably one of the most balanced one.

    both saina and srikanth will be playing their conquerors of hongkong open in the semifinals, it will be a tough one for both as tai and chen have been playing well. .the question is, what will be the result this time, same like the hongkong open or will it be reversed. :rolleyes:

    Absolutely it'll be tough as TTY is playing her best game in this tourney...
    SN has to believe in herself.. Somebody has to show all the pics of glories she achieved..she should believe that she is the better player..she has an edge..both WR and H2H points in her direction ..
    Moreover she has beaten her arch rival WSX in straight games...she must play her game without thinking of anything more than that..same goes for KS we saw how disbelief can outclass himself all of a sudden..i have a strong beleif that one of them will win...

    Both ladies are in top form. My concern for TTY is her tendency to be error-prone at the wrong time and playing too many loose shots. Otherwise it should be evenly matched.

    Unless Saina makes a series of unforced errors, TTY will be hard put to close the gap.

    TTY has yet to find her rhythm, Saina in control.

    TTY should use the remaining part of this game to try and regain her footing...
