    QUARTERFINALS (12.00pm & 06.30pm) => https://www.tournamentsoftware.com/...F3D6BB-D4E1-4185-840A-8619D6F86854&d=20161125

    *Match Highlights :
    - Sony Dwi Kuncoro (INA) v Hu Yun (HKG)
    - Angus Ng Ka Long (HKG) v Ajay Jayaram (IND)
    - Carolina Marin (ESP) v Akane Yamaguchi (JPN)
    - Tai Tzu Ying (TPE) v Aya Ohori (JPN)
    - Goh VS/Tan WK (MAS) v Ahsan/Saputro (INA)
    - Kamura/Sonoda (JPN) v Choi SG/Ko SH (KOR)
    - Chang YN/Lee SH (KOR) v Chen QC/Jia YF (CHN)
    - Huang DP/Li YH (CHN) v Jung KE/Shin SC (KOR)
    - Reginald Lee/Chau HW (HKG) v Jordan/Susanto (INA)

    Highly-favoured Jan O Jorgensen is the only remaining seeded player survived in this competition. The Danish star battled hard to eliminate local hopeful Wei Nan in a close contest that ended with 24-22 at deciding game and he will up against another home player Vincent Wong Wing Ki to vie semifinal spot. Two promoted shuttlers Chong Wei Feng and Sameer Verma will not waste their golden opportunity in the absence of defending champion Lee Chong Wei to hunt semifinal spot in Superseries tournament. Chong and Verma played long duration match to down Prannoy and Sakai respectively in last sixteen. On bottom half draw, last year semifinalist Angus Ng Ka Long keeps his momentum to go further here, he has Indian opponent Ajay Jayaram to check into last four. The veteran shuttlers, recent SIN Open winner Sony Dwi Kuncoro and Hu Yun will cross sword tonight. Hu ousted Destination Dubai number two rank Son Wan Ho in three games.

    The most intriguing WS quarterfinal tie will pit double World Champion Carolina Marin against 19 years old teenager Akane Yamaguchi. Last meeting, the Japanese starlet disposed the Olympic Champion in DEN Premier semifinal last month. The error-proned Tai Tzu Ying dropped first game against Lyanny Mainaky before she showed true colour in last sixteen round. She should be wary for today's rival, Japanese well-improved Aya Ohori. Two Indian aces, Saina Nehwal and P.V. Sindhu are expected to face off in semifinal stage tomorrow, crucial match for both players to secure Dubai ticket. Nehwal needed rubber games once again to dump the resilient Sayaka Sato and has tricky test next, Cheung Ngan Yi who created surprising run in Odense and knocked out Nitchaon Jindapol yesterday.

    Top-two seeds are still on course to advance into next round, Rio silver medalist Goh/Tan had trouble to eliminate Chinese new pair Liu C/Zhang N and they will be tested by Indonesia fresh partnerships Ahsan/Saputro. Second seed Chai/Hong are favoured to eliminate local combination Law CH/Reginald Lee and will meet either Kamura/Sonoda or Korean senior-junior combiantion Choi SG/Ko SH. Last year beaten finalist Boe/Mogensen will find Malaysian challengers, Ong YS/Teo EY who topped Bitburger Open podium early this month.

    Current best WD, Matsutomo/Takahashi without much trouble cleared preliminary rounds, they had tight first games against Indonesians Awanda/Istrirani then became unstoppable in second game. The Olympic Champion have Chinese experimenting pair, Bao YX/Yu XH to book semifinal berth. Other title contenders, Juhl/Pedersen will face Thailand young duo, Kititharakul/Prajongjai. The world number three Danish pair played three games to down 2014 Commonwealth gold medalist Vivian Hoo/Woon KW. CHN-KOR affairs occupy lower half of draw, Chen QC/Jia YF will see Chang YN/Lee SH, a rematch of recent French Open final while Huang DP/Li YH have tough foe, Rio bronze medalist Jung KE/Shin SC.

    The surprise continues in mixed doubles discipline where two Chinese best hopefuls, Zheng SW/Chen QC, Lu K/Huang YQ ended their Hong Kong campaign, lost to home favourite Reginald Lee/Chau HW and Korean qualifiers Choi SG/Chae YJ. But China stilll have two representatives at last eight, Liu C/Li YH will see high calibre opponent, Ahmad/Natsir and Zhang N/Huang DP have Choi/Chae. Former world number six Hong Kong pair Reginald Lee/Chau will set up a clash with reigning All England champion Jordan/Susanto while their teammates Tang CM/Tse YS have 2013 winner The Adcocks for a place in final four.

    Sony Dwi beat fellow senior citizens Lee Hyun Il and Boonsak. And now faces Hu Yun. They have pretty much got their own age category mini-tournament going. ;-)
    Keep going, Sony, and win one more for the Old School! :cool:

    Really poor performance from Taka/ Matsu today. Nothing seemed to go right, Matsumoto's serve even worse than usual and lots of frustrations about line calls as well. They didn't seem like they wanted to be here.

    Hopefully they will do better at the Dubai Finals in 3 weeks

    TTY beat a suprisingly off colour Aya Ohori convincingly. But even the most ardent fan of TTY will despair at the many unforced errors that crept in into the second set.

    indian coaches very animated talking to Sindhu during the break. Singapore coach just has two or three sentences and then sits down! Pressure is all on Sindhu.

    Sindhu lost her self confident after losing her second game tightly and she is playing without focus in the deciding game.
