    Host China secures four final berths, only misses MD category while European powerhouse Denmark and Indonesia have two representatives each, followed by India and Korea with 1 spot in WS and WD discipline respectively.

    WD, Huang Dongping/Li Yinhui (CHN) v Chang Ye Na/Lee So Hee (KOR)
    H-2-H : 1-2 / WR : 58 v 6
    The underdog Huang DP/Li YH continue their surprising run to book final spot, defeated Rio silver medalist Juhl/Pedersen in two straight-games. The biggest stumbling block for home youngsters along this tournament so far none but current best WD combination, Rio gold medalist Matsutomo/Takahashi at second round. Two consecutive finals in Superseries tour for Korean number two, Chang/Lee as they managed runner-up position in Paris recently. The world number six pair have pretty convincing victory en route to last round, only pushed to work hard in second game by Luo twin sisters at semifinal. The ambitious Huang/Li will be inspired by their teammates Chen QC/Jia YF who nailed French Open crown end of last month.

    WS, Sun Yu (CHN) v Pusarla Venkatta Sindhu (IND)
    H-2-H : 3-2 / WR : 9 v 11
    The battle of tall players, coming from same generation, third final of Superseries tournament in 2016 for 22 years old Sun Yu after failed in Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo maybe it's time for her to pick prestigious title at homeground event to prove she's deserved to be China leading lady after Two Wangs retired and Li Xuerui is still in rehabilitation process after underwent surgery three months ago. P.V. Sindhu who claimed Rio silver medal in young age showed her steel determination in last four, trailed behind 17-20 then she claimed 23-21 to deny Sung Ji Hyun triumphant and forced rubber game, a very tight contest which drained so much energy in 84 minutes duel that ended 21-19 for the Indian player. Meanwhile Sun Yu had relatively easy to overcome Taiwanese talent Tai Tzu Ying who ousted Carolina Marin in last eight.

    MD, Marcus Fernaldi Gideon/Kevin Sanjaya Sukamuljo (INA) v Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen (DEN)
    H-2-H : 0-1 / WR : 7 v 3
    The encounter between different generation, age is no big problem for Danish veteran Boe/Mogensen who clinched French Open title three weeks ago then they cruised into final here. Current INA number one Gideon/Sukamuljo involved in gruelling encounter before wrapped up semifinal match, coming from behind they bagged final ticket with 16-21 / 26-24 / 21-19 to defeat home favourite Chai/Hong. The Danish finest also eliminated another local pair, Liu C/Zhang N in two straight sets and they eye third CHN Open title tomorrow after won 2011 & 2012 edition. Gideon/Fernaldi have pretty good outcome in this year, collected IND Open and AUS Open Superseries title.

    MS, Jan O Jorgensen (DEN) v Chen Long (CHN)
    H-2-H : 1-8 / WR : 6 v 2
    A predicted final showdown in the absence of world number one and defending champion Lee Chong Wei. Both players needed three games to cruise into last round, the Olympic Champion played his usual style with patience and solid defense, Chen Long couldn't control the drift in second game as he lost tamely 9-21 but at the deciding game, the double world champion back on the right track to seal the game 21-14 as Axelsen started to produced uncharateristic errors. Later in the evening, Jan O Jorgensen had hard times to down unseeded player Zulkarnain despite the Danish player saved three game points and sealed first game, 22-20 but the Malaysian didn't give up in second set that ended with identical scoreline but it's gone case at final game, Jorgensen won comfortably 21-7. It's challenging task for three-time champion Chen Long to win first Superseries title in this season after three months long break post Rio OG triumphant.

    XD, Zhang Nan/Li Yinhui (CHN) v Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir (INA)
    H-2-H : 0-0 / WR : 142 v 7
    It's significant leap for new partnerships, Zhang/Li in this tournament to knock out elite pairs and more fancied rival, Chan PS/Goh LY, Zheng SW/Chen QC and world number one Ko SH/Kim HN in three consecutive rounds. They will find tough foe tomorrow, the Olympic Champion Ahmad/Natsir, familiar arch-rival for Zhang Nan when he paired up with Zhao Yunlei. The Indonesian duo were troubled by two Korean combinations in their path to finale, Yoo YS/Chang YN and the youngsters Choi SG/Chae YJ. CHN Open is second tournament for world number 7 post Rio OG, they swallowed disappointment in Odense last month and will aim to retain their 2013 title tomorrow.

    P V Sindhu played longest match of the day in Semis

    Organisers need to consider this . They kept WS as second match in the finals. She played 1 hour 24 minutes in the semifinals. They should keep WS as 4th match of the day.

    Definitely, fatigue will play a part in Sindhu's match. Whereas Sun Yu had an easy match.

    Hope Prodigy Sindhu will take the WS title of China Open 2016.

    3rd consecutive time by an indian to enter WS finals of China Open. Previously , Saina entered 2014 and 2015 finals.

    Will she play her normal game or play as if she does not care at all? Only time will tell.

    If she reallt wants the title, she need to work hard.

    Actually i thought it was all over @ 17-20 in g2 but she pulled through. If there's something she has significantly improved is getting better of her nerves.
    Her g1 in the OG final against CM is another evidence.
    But, I felt she looked considerably slow esp in g1 and beginning of g2, her retrieving wasn't as smooth as always needless to mention her smashes are getting weaker day by day (saving energy strategy (?) ).
    Tomorrow she wouldn't have height and stamina advantage, it all goes down to executing different strategies. PV should believe her instincts and stay proactive.
    Hope she gets the much awaited title, Jai Ho

    When was the last time Sindhu won a title. I can't remember. It seems a long time ago.

    Yes...that's why I can't recall her winning any titles. Only podium finishes.

    Hopefully today.

    Li Yinhui/Huang Dongping are still young, inexperienced and somewhat raw, lots of youthful exuberance and hunger to win though. Let's see if they can carry the day.

    Li Yinhui, who is doing double duty all the way to the finals in WD and XD, will be fully tested.
