As expected, defending champion Ahsan/Setiawan marches on semifinal, def. former partner Kido/Fernaldi.
3 setter in 46 min. No fun to watch :/
Good that I just started watching and didnīt wake up earlier. The only match I really enjoy to watch with Ahsan/Setiawan is against Lee/Yoo because they can challange them on the serve and return and somehow this results in longer and more interesting rallies.
