    SEMIFINALS Order of Play
    (12.00pm local time, 2 courts) : http://www.tournamentsoftware.com/s...410764-3F53-4BE8-9FCF-51A92DC74D74&d=20151017

    Axelsen shows excellent form, Jorgensen finds exit door

    China has 7 representatives in semifinal, followed by Korea (4), Denmark (3), Indonesia (2) and 1 each for ESP, IND, JPN and TPE.

    Non stop upsets were created for MS category yesterday as second, third and fourth seed failed to fulfill the semifinal script, local star Jan O Jorgensen was stunned by the unseeded Tommy Sugiarto. This Copenhagen WC bronze medalist will up against 7th seed Chou Tien Chen who eliminated more favoured Kento Momota. And hometown boy, Viktor Axelsen demolished two times Olympic Champion Lin Dan. Axelsen will challenge top-seed, world and defending champion Chen Long for final berth. Chen dropped first game before bounced back to overcome the dangerous Wei Nan at last eight.

    The in-form Sung Ji Hyun will meet her nemesis Li Xuerui, the Olympic Champion who still seek her supreme form after injured in Paris final last year, it's gonna be tough test for Li as the high-confidenced Korean seemed really improved recently. Invincible Carolina Marin has Indian hurdle P.V. Sindhu to book another final in Superseries tournament, the latter knocked out former champion Wang YH in two close games earlier.

    A rematch of last year final is on the way, Lee YD/Yoo YS v Fu HF/Zhang N. Both pairs had no problem en route to last four, all straight-sets winning. The top-ranked Korean pair has slight advantage to progress as they won over Fu/Zhang in last two meetings. Bottom half semifinal tie will pit home hopeful Boe/Mogensen against China surprising package Liu C/Lu K, it's tricky test for Danish #1 to overcome Liu/Lu.

    China has secured 1 final spot through Tian Q/Zhao YL v Ma J/Tang YT, the winner of this tie will face either Korean or Japanese pair. Jung KE/Shin SC has pretty smooth run to reach final four including shocked last year runner-up and top-seed Matsutomo/Takahashi while Kakiiwa/Maeda needed extra game before eliminated HKG pair Poon LY/Tse YS at last eight. The more skillful Korean relatively new combo is favoured to progress against resilient Japanese duo.

    Liu C/Bao YX is last hope for China to keep XD chance alive as their two teammates were sent-packing yesterday, last year winner Xu/Ma and Lu K/Huang YQ lost to Ko SH/Kim HN and Ahmad/Natsir respectively. Even the powerful Zhang/Zhao got premature exit at last sixteen. With fully supported by home fans and head to head statistics, Fischer/Pedersen has advantage to cruise into last round against Ko SH/kim HN. A heavy burden is waiting for China #3 Liu/Bao to topple Indonesian Ahmad/Natsir.

    LIVE TV (court 1, 12.00pm local time) matches :

    1) Liu Cheng/Bao Yixin (CHN) v Tontowi Ahmad/Liliyana Natsir (INA)
    2) Chen Long (CHN) v Viktor Axelsen (DEN)
    3) Joachim Fischer Nielsen/Christinna Pedersen (DEN) v Ko Sung Hyun/Kim Ha Na (KOR)
    4) P.V. Sindhu (IND) v Carolina Marin (ESP)
    5) Jung Kyung Eun/Shin Seung Chan (KOR) v Reika Kakiiwa/Miyuki Maeda (JPN)

    Very well written, CLELY! As always. ;)

    Anyway, I found the semifinal line up is really interesting. Hopefully Tommy Sugiarto and Liliyana Natsir/Tontowi Ahmad do their best and win. As for the other department, I hope Marin keeps winning, hehe.

    All the best to all players.

    Excellent semi finals!!!

    TQ/ZYL vs MJ/TYT may go all out since none of the four players need to do XD duty. And either or both of the two pairs may or may not go to Rio!!

    LYD/YYS vs ZN/FHF and SJH vs LXR could be a preview of Rio finals!!

    My predictions for singles
    1) CL vs VA --- CL, I'll be happy if VA proves me wrong.
    2) TS vs CT --- TS
    3) SJH vs LXR ---- SJH, her stamina alone will be enough to beat LXR.
    4) CM vs PV ---- My heart says PV but my brain says CM. I don't think PVS is mentally strong enough to handle Marin yet. I just hope she doesn't throw her racket at Marin and end up getting banned.

    I don't think the players hear Marin as loud as we do. There are microphones directed to the players and the sound they produced is made louder by tv (mainly to get the "pop" of the hits).

    Maybe!!
    But I have seen players playing against her suddenly gets shock when they are facing back sides and aren't prepared for that.. I remember I saw SN making faces and most of the times giving a tame look whenever CM shouts

    Best chance for Axelsen to bag his first SS title,the momentum will never be greater than this.
