I don't want to watch LD vs CJ or maybe there won't be any match.

I am paying to watch and do not want to be shortchanged with some fixed matches.

The first Mens singles SF played will be Peter Gade v/s Chen Loooong
The outcome of that match may have some influence on the outcome of the second Mens singles SF between LD and CJ.
However, my feeling is that regardless of the first match (i.e. even if Peter wins) the second match will be played freely. The reason should be found in the head-to-head results over the past year or more.
Also: Even If Chen Jin wins the event, he will not break into the top 4. OTOH, LD and CL can consolidate their positions in the top 4 by going all out to accumulate more points.

There is no use in only two in the top 4 for Olympic qualifying so better make use of this SF appearance by CJ
And the early session will be the international TV session ... 6AM madness

Aiming for that 50% again eh ?
sweet! 9-1 on my picks today, only losing on that incredulous loss by the TPE wd ... but I guess you could have seen that self destruction coming. No way the JPN girls actually took the match rather than being handed it.
stiff competition http://www.badmintoncentral.com/forums/showthread.php/102544-Pick-A-Winner-(PAW)-146-%E2%80%93-CHINA-MASTERS-SS-2011?p=1754542#post1754542 (majority of PAWers did well anyways today)

Well, well, well! The only discipline where the Chinese have only 1 representation in the Semis, is the XD!
And its up the #3 seeds Joachim/Christinna to stop #5 seeds Xu Chen/Ma Jin tomorrow, to prevent any chance of China making a clean sweep.
