JAKARTA - Singapore's Fu Mingtian has moved into the women's badminton singles semi-final after beating Malaysian Lydia Cheah 23-21, 21-14 on Thursday.
By making the last four, she is guaranteed a medal at this South-east Asian Games.
She faces Thai Intanon Ratchanok in Friday's semi-final.
Compatriot Derek Wong will face defending champion and local favourite Simon Santosa in the men's semi-final at the Istora Senayan Stadium.
(Derek did well to upset Vietnam's star player Nguyen Tien Minh 21-14, 21-15. And our women's doubles pair of Yao Lei/Shinta Mulia Sari defeated their Thai opponents Sapsiree Taerattan/Savitree Amitrapai 21-17, 21-18. Well done and Good Luck.)

JAKARTA - Derek Wong clinched a stunning upset win against second seed Nguyen Minh Tien on Thursday.
Wong beat the Vietnamese 21-14, 21-15 to advance to the men's badminton semi-finals.
The Singaporean is guaranteed a South-east Asian Games medal by making the last four.
The last time a local man won a medal in the singles was Kendrick Lee who finished second in the 2007 Korat Games.

Mohd Rijal & Ahmad Tontowi picked up a Gold Medal despite having played 0 match in the team event. Also, seems like no Taufik Hidayat on the podium. He decided to give his medal to Rijal perhaps?

Tanongsak Saensomboonsuk  vs Simon Santoso  - Tanongsak beat Taufik twice in the space of 1 week. Simon should win this one but he needs to be careful.
Adriyanti Firdasari vs Fu Mingtian  - I think Firda has the ability to beat the Singaporean. She usually reserves her best performance in front of the home crowd!
Bona Septano/Mohd Ahsan  vs Markis Kido/Hendra Setiawan  - the second meeting between these 2 pairs this year. Bona/Ahsan are the more in-form pair and they need to win this Gold Medal to confirm their status as the no 1 MD pair in INA now.
Nitya Krishinda Maheswari/Anneke Feinya Agustine  vs Vita Marissa/Nadya Melati  - Nitya/Feinya to emerge as the winner!
Ahmad Tontowi/Liliyana Natsir  vs Sudket Prapakamol/Saralee Thoungthongkam  - nothing less than a Gold Medal will suffice for Towi/Butet.

Then the big question will be, who will receive the Rp200 million? The government promised to give Rp 200 million EACH team members for every gold winners. Reserve players should get it too.

So our lady Fu Mingtian has proven her worth and stopped INA from making a clean sweep of the individual gold medals. And in front of a partisan crowd too!
She has exceeded all expectations and taken revenge for compatriot Gu Juan. What a victory! Singapore also can!
