    *MS Semifinals :
    - Brice Leverdez (FRA) v Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk (THA)
    - Son Wan Ho (KOR) v Lee Hyun Il (KOR)


    The underdog Brice Leverdez created biggest upset of tournament last night, a big breakthrough in his badminton career and defied all odds to oust one of best MS in contemporary era, Lee Chong Wei in marathon match that spent 77 minutes, 21-17 / 20-22 / 21-19. It's unexpected losing for the consistent Malaysian who celebrated 34th birthday yesterday. Leverdez will tackle the in-form Tanongsak who ended local sole hopeful in this discipline, Anders Antonsen in rubber games. On the opposite draw, two Korean players shine here Son Wan Ho and 36 years old Lee Hyun Il eliminated their younger rivals, Shi Yuqi and Vincent Wong Wing Ki respectively in long duration duel.

    *WS Semifinals :
    - Carolina Marin (ESP) v Akane Yamaguchi (JPN)
    - Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Cheung Ngan Yi (HKG)


    Another scary escape for the Olympic Champion Carolina Marin, she involved in thrilling match once again but prevailed at the end to defeat Sun Yun in extra games and extra points, 27-25 that hitted 85 minutes. Her fitness will be tested this evening against teen wonder Akane Yamaguchi, the Japanese player is known to have strong stamina and solid defense. Tai Tzu Ying also experienced a gruelling quarterfinal tie to down Sung Ji Hyun and theTaiwanese will take on HKG Cheung Ngan Yi, a surprising semifinalist who beat Sayaka Sato for the first time of four encounters.

    *MD Semifinals :
    - Bodin Isara/Nipitphon Phuangphuapet (THA) v Angga Pratama/Ricky Karanda Suwardi (INA)
    - Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong (MAS) v Mathias Boe/Carsten Mogensen (DEN)


    Thailand combination Isara/Phuanphuapet stunned more favoured pair Gideon/Sukamuljo in close battle that ended 21-19 in deciding game, they will up against another Indonesian MD, Pratama/Suwardi, head to head statistics show 7th seed INA pair won in their two previous meetings. The high-spirited home favourite Boe/Mogensen outclassed recent All England champion Ivanov/Sozonov and the Danish duo will be challenged by Rio silver medalist Goh/Tan who applied right strategy with their block and accurate placement against fast and furious Chinese rising stars, Li JH/Liu YC at last eight.

    *WD Semifinals :
    - Misaki Matsutomo/Ayaka Takahashi (JPN) v Puttita Supajirakul/Sapsiree Taerattanachai (THA)
    - Greysia Polii/Nitya Krishinda Maheswari (INA) v Jung Kyung Eun/Shin Seung Chan (KOR)


    It's positive development for Supajirakul/Taerattanachai, they won THA GP Gold couple of weeks ago and then cruise to semifinal in Premier event here. The Thai duo toppled Chinese lone ranger in WD department, Luo twin sisters in two straight games and next they have an uphill task to face current best women's doubles pair, the Olympic Champion Matsutomo/Takahashi. An interesting semifinal showdown will pit Indonesian representative Maheswari/Polii against Rio bronze medalist Jung KE/Shin SC, the Korean defeated local high profile pair Pedersen/Juhl in comfortable way.

    *XD Semifinals :
    - Joachim Fischer Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen (DEN) v Chris Adcock/Gabrielle Adcock (ENG)
    - Zheng Siwei/Chen Qingchen (CHN) v Lu Kai/Huang Yaqiong (CHN)


    A rematch of Rio Olympic group stage tie between two European leading pairs, The Adcock v local favourite Ficher/Pedersen. It's time to bounce back for English married couple after series of unimpressive result lately, last time they won 2015 Dubai SS Finals. Danish veterans displayed excellent performance to dump world number one Ko SH/Kim HN in two quick games yesterday. The winner of this duel will face one of Chinese combinations, Zheng SW/Chen QC eliminated All England winner Jordan/Susanto while Lu K/Huang YQ downed their compatriot, the giant-killer Wang YL/Huang DP who shocked the Olympic Champion Ahmad/Natsir at last sixteen.

    TS must be happy that BL won over LCW.
    I expect TTY to be in tomorrow's final.

    SHW is the only one seeded left and he is the favourite.
    I am rooting for LHI.

    I think Lee Hyun Il might be able to take the title but both Son Wan Ho and Tanongsak should they meet, will be a test of the veteran's fitness.

    Brice's amazing win over the living legend is most heartening for French badminton but today's match with Tanongsak might be one too many for him. We'll see.

    I am french and totally agreed.

    BL is not capable of making good performance over good performance...

    And with his victory over the week, I even doubt he could pass through first turn in the french open next week.

    Shouldn't they not broadcast what the coach is saying when the opponent can hear it too?

    The way Tanongsak played just now, if LCW were to meet him playing like he did yesterday, I've no doubt Tanongsak's raw speed and power (of course,not saying he doesn't have the requisite skills) would stop LCW in his tracks.

    They needn't watch, just have to listen, the opponent and his coach.

    Cheung Ngan Yi is a superb runner and retriever, she's all over the court getting a lot back, a trait typically associated with the JPN WS.

    All square, now for the decider.

    Cheung Ngan Yi has a chance to wear out Tai TY, I sense it.

    Cheung a bit too eager to win and mishit that loose shot.

    Unfortunately, Cheung at 17-all made a couple of unforced errors to hand over the match to Tai TY 21-18.

    Once again, familiarity breeds advantage for Son Wan Ho over his illustrious senior, Lee Hyun Il.

    If Akane is going to serve to Marin's forehand, better to go low.
