    China dominates semifinal round with 2 final tickets have been guaranteed through WS and XD followed by JPN and INA who have four representatives each at final four.

    Hu Yun continues his gallant run and will up against Indian Parupalli Kashyap today, it may be close match based on their head to head, the two players are really motivated to score inspiring outcome in Superseries tournament and this is it. Simon Santoso should have high confidence in the sensational wipe out of strong faves at second round to repeat his magic last year, the young and dangerous Kento Momota will deliver stiff challenge for him today.

    After relatively easy path at previous rounds, Tai Tzu Ying will have hard test today, defending champion Wang Yihan, it's chance to Taiwanese young star to overcome Chinese #3 as her opponent shows lacklustre performance lately. Sun Yu and Wang Shixian will face each other at bottom half of draw to chase final ticket.

    Big gun surprising defeat yesterday, Lee YD/Yoo YSS lost to INA back up Pratama/Suwardi who will meet the experience Japanese pair Endo/Hayakawa. INA best hopeful Ahsan/Setiawan will take revenge over their All England losing to Fu HF/Zhang N, it'll be high quality match with Fu Haifeng hard smash and Hendra Setiawan superiority at front court area.

    CHN-JPN clash for WD as top two seeds Matsutomo/Takahashi, Kakiiwa/Maeda will be challenged by former world #1 Wang XL/Yu Y and upcoming pair Ou DN/Yu XH. Highly prospected to see all Chinese affairs tomorrow unless one of Japanese pair could perform extraordinary this afternoon.

    Ahmad/Natsir is surrounded by three Chinese pairs, will they survive today? In last three meetings the Indonesian #1 lost to their nemesis, they should find better strategy this time how to block the mighty Zhang/Zhao. Xu/Ma v Lu K/Huang YQ, the different generation duel as the senior pair has slight advantage to win.

    LIVE TV (court 1, 02.00pm) matches :

    1) Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Wang Xiaoli/Yu Yang (CHN)
    2) Hu Yun (HKG) v Parupalli Kashyap (IND)
    3) Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Wang Yihan (CHN)
    4) Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Suwardi (INA) v Hiroyuki Endo/Kenichi Hayakawa (JPN)
    5) Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir (INA)

    Such a shame Momota vs Santoso is not on tv court! That is the nicest prospect for MS in this tournament so far!

    If kashyap plays something like in the previous rounds, he has a chance. He has beaten veteran evergreen Lee Hyun II , another veteran SonWonHo and Brice Leverdez in the first 3 rounds , all in 2 straight games very convincingly. If he continue his current form, he has a chance of beating Hu Yun. Hu Yun is an all rounder.

    I suspect that YY/WXL will fall to the WR#1 pair. YY/WXL's performance against Gutta/Ponnappa was poor beyond words. And they barely beat MJ/HYQ, a makeshift pair of two front court players.

    WD partners Ma Jin and Huang YaQiong will square off in XD today. It is intriguing to see if LK/HYQ can make one last case for themselves or that they will switch partners in future competitions.

    Setia/Ahsan trying very hard to tank game 2 after being down 10 points. Fu/Zhang matching the ridiculousness at times with back to back clears, Setiawan letting a clear fall at the doubles back service line...... Very awkward. I know they want to give up on the game but seriously?

    Oh my god, Setiawan just completely whiffed a free and easy net kill, 12-6 to CHN. Very uncharacteristic

    I think this is part of the downsides of tanking a set. You get into a lull and don't regain the intensity. Really a mental mistake on INA

    Fu/Zhang take the match 21-17 in 3rd set. But very nearly blew another huge 14-6 lead. Not the greatest I've ever seen either pair play. It was really whoever could hold their nerve the best and not make a mistake.

    The only competitive badminton really was in the first set.

    After losing a hefty lead in the third, I thought Fu/Zhang are done for but they take in the end.
