This tie certainly will draw all badminton enthusistas to follow the battle of two biggest badminton stars of contemporary era. It's now or never for world number one Lee Chong Wei to snatch first ever major title as he had slipped numerous times in badminton big tournaments, World Championships (2011, 2013, 2014, 2015), Asian Games (2010, 2014) and Olympic Summer Games (2008, 2012). The Malaysian hero overcame Chinese living-legend in their last two meetings, China Premier (November 2015) and Asian Badminton Championships (April 2016). Lee shows excellent performance en route to last four while Lin was struggling and experienced thrilling moment against Indian youngster Srikanth Kidambi. The full-confidenced Lee will face the enigmatic Lin, a must-watched duel! - Viktor Axelsen (DEN) v Chen Long (CHN) H-2-H : 1-7 / WR : 4 v 2 The rising Danish star Axelsen willl be another stumbling block for two-time World Champion Chen Long to prove his status as China number one player. The lanky Chen negative trend and slump performance in last 10 months, his credibility is questionable, it will be challenging task for him to dump the hungry Axelsen to be next Denmark men's singles player to enter Olympic final after current BWF President Poul Erik Hoyer did it in Atlanta 1996. Both players passed preliminary rounds convincingly except Son Wan Ho who forced Chen Long played extra games at quarterfinal. Axelsen bagged the last encounter victory in Dubai Superseries Final last December. Women's Singles Bronze Medal match - Li Xuerui (CHN) v Nozomi Okuhara (JPN) Nozomi Okuhara will bag bronze medal as Li Xuerui pulled out : http://olympics.bwfbadminton.com/20...-history-womens-singles-semi-finals-rio-2016/ Women's Singles Gold Medal match - Carolina Marin (ESP) v Pusarla Venkatta Sindhu (IND) H-2-H stats : 4-2 / WR : 1 v 10 China domination in this category has been toppled as her last hopeful standing, defending champion Li Xuerui suffered knee injury at 18-16 position of second set. The new Carolina Marin is reborn after she didn'n produce excellent performance, started from early this year. Marin dictated the pace and controlled the match against Li yesterday, she's fast, full energy and high confidence to apply her attacking style. P.V. Sindhu also creates history for India badminton, her achievement has passed Saina Nehwal four years ago, at least silver medal is secured for young Indian. She trounced high-calibre players like Tai Tzu Ying, Wang Yihan and current All England winner, Nozomi Okuhara, what a fantastic journey in Rio, we'll see whether she will produce another brilliant feat to present gold today. Men's Doubles Gold Medal match - Goh V Shem/Tan Wee Kiong (MAS) v Fu Haifeng/Zhang Nan (CHN) H-2-H stats : 2-1 / WR : 12-4 Huge pressure for the Chinese combination to deliver first badminton gold in Rio, a setback for China badminton after London 2012 clean-sweep and reversal of fortune here. Fu/Zhang lost to the Malaysian darkhorse in group stage and they need to work extra hard to stop the on-fire Goh/Tan this time, a self belief of this Malaysian unseeded pair after dumped strong favourite Korean hotshots Lee/Yoo will boost their motivation to win dream title, the Olympic Champion. A catastrophe for China badminton happened in Riocentro yesterday, started from women's doubles losing, continued to unfortunate event that Li Xuerui injured and unexpected defeat by Chai/Hong. The shaky Chinese squad now is relying on Fu Haifeng/Zhang Nan and their two men's singles aces Lin Dan, Chen Long to claim glory in Rio. Jung Kyung Eun/Shin Seung Chan pocketed bronze medal in lop-sided match against the dispirited Tang/Yu. As expected Matsutomo/Takahashi clinched the gold after took momentum in third game after trailed behind 16-19, the Danish veterans Pedersen/Juhl blew their golden opportunity to top podium. Credit to both pairs who presented intriguing final clash. Great Britain Ellis/Langridge created big upset to knock-out Chai/Hong in rubber-games, third badminton medal for GBR in Olympic Games after Archer/Goode bagged bronze at Sydney 2000 and Robertson/Emms grabbed silver in Athens 2004.
