Xing Aiying beat Chen Hsiao Huan 21-15, 21-15
Singapore's Xing Aiying (#2), the eventual WS winner, had an easier time with another Taiwanese, Chen Hsiao Huan (#7) during the other WS SF. But Chen showed great fighting spirit and extended the time to 38 min.
TPE sent quite a strong team, especially in doubles. I was told most of the players came from the clubs, just as many of the Japanese players did.

XD Chayut Triyachart SIN/Ng Hui Ern MAS beat INA Alfian Eko Prasetya/Gloria Eman (#4)
The scratch pair of Chayut and Ng caused quite an upset when they beat the Indonesian pair of Alfian and Gloria. However they eventually lost to the Taiwanese in the finals.
I was told that Chayut's former partner, Yao Lei, will concentrate on WD.

MS Final: Thammasin Sitthikom (THA #15) beat Ashton Chen (SIN #1) 22-20, 8-21, 21-8
This last match of the afternoon provided the most excitment that ended in just over an hour.
In fact the match was decided in the very first game as the remaining games were of reverse identical scores.
Both players sought to set up for an eventual attack and at the end of the day the younger and faster Thammasin seemed to carry a more powerful smash. We shall see more of this young Thai in the near future. He also eliminated the more experienced Indian, Anup Sridhar (#4) in straight games in the SF.
