The final curtain is on the way to conclude five World Champions, CHN has secured two titles, their supremo WD category and XD while KOR shows their superiority to nail MD title. Disappointment for home fans, three bronze medalists for Danish shuttlers.
WD, Tian Qing/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Wang Xiaoli/Yu Yang (CHN) head-to-head stats : 3-9
The prestige match between two elite CHN pairs, rematch of 2011 London WC where Wang/Yu won the title. A hat-trick by Wang/Yu or first ever WC title for the Olympic Champion Tian/Zhang?
MD, Ko Sung Hyun/Shin Baek Cheol (KOR) v Lee Yong Dae/Yoo Yeon Seong (KOR) h-2-h : 0-0
First time meeting between two pairs, Lee/Yoo is hot fave to nail WC crown, third final for Lee YD who partnered with Jung Jae Sung lost in their previous WC final (2007 and 2009). Copenhagen is really fave ground for KOR MD pair, their predecessors Park Joo Bong/Kim Moon Soo and Ha Tae Kwon/Kim Dong Moon claimed WC title also in Copenhagen back to 1991 and 1999 edition respectively.
WS, Li Xuerui (CHN) v Carolina Marin (ESP) h-2-h : 3-0
The unfinished business for the Olympic Champion Li Xuerui after nightmare losing last year in front of her homeground to Ratchanok Intanon, and today she will take on another surprising finalist, hugely talented Spaniard who disposed former WC Wang Yihan at R/16. Good to see European player in final and history for Spain, a nothing to lose Marin could pose trouble for Li Xuerui but world #1 certainly will be determined to complete another big title after Olympic gold medal
MS, Lee Chong Wei (MAS) v Chen Long (CHN) h-2-h : 9-8
Time is getting closer for Lee CW to bag the elusive WC title and present perfect gift to his country Independence Day. Lee CW has very smooth path en route to his third WC final, all straight-games with convincing scoreline
XD, Zhang Nan/Zhao Yunlei (CHN) v Xu Chen/Ma Jin (CHN) h-2-h : 16-2
Lopsided head to head, ZZ is has favour to reclaim their WC, coincidentally Xu/Ma was their opponent in 2011 London WC edition.
INA must be satisfied with one bronze medal through Tommy Sugiarto, next mission for INA shuttlers is the coming soon Incheon Asian Games.
