The young Indonesian talent, Simon Santoso, through from the Qualifying
event, takes yet another step up at this event. Today he was up against
5/8 seed Chen Yu, CHN, who last week was runner-up at the All England.
Santoso played with great confidence throughout this match and took the
lead from the very first stroke. First game was won with 21-10. One
decisive factor was the play at the net - Santoso succeeded, Chen Yu
didn't. As the match progressed Chen Yu seemed lack of confidence that
he could turn it around to his own advantage.
In the second game Santoso continued where he left off in the first. He
kept controlling the net and furthermore sent Chen Yu from corner to
corner. Chen Yu was not very good friend with the lines today, and he
didn't at all play with the same spirit and confidence as he did in
England just last week.
Although being the better part in the second game, Santoso didn't make
an ultimate break in the score until 7-7. Chen Yu didn't succeed with
anything at by the minute his confidence seemed to drop off him. On
numerous occassions he sent the shuttle out the backline.
Santoso to the game 21-12 on the first match ball.

Seems Chen Yu was a bit out of character in this game. Is that a sign of fatigue or injury?

I would Guess mental fatigue more than anything. He has played a lot of mathes recently, reaching German and AE finals.
Simon played consisently, with few errors, but nothing special, CY made many erros, and didn't seem to have inclination to attack.

I was shocked when I saw Simon beated Chen Yu.
Could it be a fluke like Dickey Palyama beating Peter Gade?

It may not happen again, but that does not make it a fluke-a fluke is all luck.
